Anyone know about automatic electric gates?

Posted: 01/11/2013 at 09:29

Thanks for all the advice and I'll look at gate-safe. I used to be on call with the National Grid regularly and would get the mid-night call to a permieter alarm. From what I can tell with gates, a manual release should nromally be built in so you can operate them manually if something goes wrong(?)

I also found this which covers a lot of what I'm concerned about. Is this what people experience?

Hi Fidgetbones,

Yes I've got 17th Edition, Inspection & Testing, 25 years at National Grid, City & Guilds 232 and 200, Tech 2, Nebosh, HSG 47 and loads more qualifications. One of the benefits of working at The NG for years.

Hi,

I'm ex National Grid with far too many years experience to mention. I love carpentry and outdoor build-related stuff so I've taken my electrical experience and my passion and joined the two together into a landscaping business.

A friend recently suggested I had the right skills for adding gate automation to my bag. 
Has anyone here experience of installing, fixing or maintaining electric swing or sliding gates?
What are the issues and benefits? I'm particularly concerned with all safety aspects.

Thanks for your thoughts.

D.
