What’s an Autogate?

The autogate is an installation on a gate to open/close it automatically. This device is a convenient tool for car owners and the entire household because you can control when you leave and/or enter your home.

Commercial autogate devices are remotely-operated which means you can use the remote from inside the house or from your car once you get home. Just press a button and you can open or close your gate from a distance. If you’re tired from all the work at the office, you won’t experience the additional stress of manually opening and closing your gate because you won’t need to step out of the car to do it. Rain won’t be a problem as well, park your car easily with an autogate system.

People think that owning an automated gate system like the autogate is a luxury when in fact there are many more reasons that point to it being a necessity for every home.

This device isn’t just convenient it also keeps your property secure since your gate only opens using the remote which reduces the risk of a break-in on your home. The automated gate also brings a level of assurance for the security and protection of your home.

Different Autogate Systems

There are four main types of autogates – sliding autogate, arm autogate, pillar mount autogate and underground swing autogate.

A total of four autogate systems are currently available in the market. They are the sliding, arm, mounted pillar, and underground swing autogate systems.

  1. Sliding Autogate –The motor in this system opens and closes the wheeled-gate by sliding it left-right or vice versa.

  2. Swing Arm Autogate (Folding Gate) –This autogate system has a motor-controlled arm which acts as the lever to open/close the gate in or out.

  3. Mounted-Pillar Autogate (Swing/Fold Gate) – A similar type of system however the gate is attached to a pillar. Swing or Fold type gates are perfect for this system. Fold-type gates ideally have 3-meter leaves for the system to work effectively.

  4. Underground Motor Autogate (Swing Gate) – The underground motor is used for Swing gates that open up or down. The motor is hidden and owners won’t need to alter anything on their gate to fit it. This is the least popular system among the four.

Autogate Buyer’s Guide – Choose the Right Autogate System

Before choosing the type of autogate, you have to learn the mechanics and measurements of your gate at home. First time buyers won’t go wrong if they go for well-known brands like OAE and SGmatic.

The following is a checklist of details for you to be able to choose the right autogate systemyou’re your home.

Gate Mechanics: Swing, Fold or Slide?

Gates typically open or close three different ways, (a) swing, (b) fold, (c) slide.

Swing gates work similar to how a door opens or closes in your home.

Slide gates come with wheels and a track. They also open from side-to-side.

Folding gates also called Bi-Fold Gates. Most designs have two smaller metal leaves each side of the gate and they open at the center which allows it to open up faster. Some designs also incorporate wheels into the design.

Consider the length of your Sliding Gate.

Measure your sliding gate’s length before choosing the autogate system that will operate it.

Swing gates: Measure each Leaf of the Gate

Swing gates have separate leaves and they need to be measured for the autogate to be used. Autogate models can only handle a certain leaf length per gate. Shorter gate leaves need a different system than those with longer leaves.

How much does your gate weigh?

Gate weight is an important consideration for buyers looking for an autogate system. The material used in the construction of the gate usually determines its weight. Iron gates are the heaviest type of gate. Our strongest autogate system is built with a motor and a support system that can handle a gate weighing up to 5 tons.

Does the gate swing easily?

There are gates that are harder to open compared to others which means you have to install an autogate motor that’s strong enough to swing your gate open easily. Gates that aren’t easily opened may have low-quality build, damaged bearings/hinges, or bad design. Installing an autogate system alone won’t fix this type of problem.

But, a heavy gate also means it’s harder to open and if you’ve already checked its structure for maintenance, then, install an autogate that can operate a heavy load.

Arm Autogate

For problems in the gate structure, you must first fix the bad parts on the gate before installing your autogate. There are professionals you can hire to fix it.

Does your installation have 13A Power?

AC power is a commonly used power source for autogate system slide-type and swing-type gates. Owners should check for available power outlets near the gate. The lack of power source can be solved by extending the wiring from your home to the outside. Hire an electrician to lay down cables near your autogate. Our company, EE automation, offers an autogate installation service which includes electrical work for your autogate power source.

More Devices:

Number of Remote Controls

Autogates are operated using a remote control. Count the number of places where you commonly operate your autogate. A good baseline number would be one for your house and one for every car.

Push buttons installed inside your home

Manual operation of the autogate can be done using a push button. These are installed inside your home. This added convenience allows the residents to operate the gate manually from inside the house.

Infrared Photo Beam Installations

An infrared photo beam is a device which detects objects or people blocking the movement path of your gate.
