PM1 – 230V electromechanical linear actuator: Reliability of the motor for swing gates

Do you have a swing gate and have you finally decided to automate it? VDS helps you in choosing the best motorization for your gate to guarantee optimal performance.

Motorized swing gate, how does it work?

The swing gate is the most used type of gate for private homes, villas and residential complexes because it is capable of combining the convenience of an automatic gate with an elegant and customizable aesthetic based on your style.

The swing gate in fact has one or two leaves that rotate on a central pivot allowing the opening and closing towards the inside or the outside of the property.

The automated swing gate has an electrical panel and a control impulse control unit, generated by a radio control or a key selector.

At a distance and with a simple click from the remote control you can finally open and close your gate, avoiding being under adverse weather conditions.

Given the great possibility of customization, each swing gate has characteristics of different size and weight, and above all based on the number of daily openings and closings, a motor capable of supporting operation must be installed.

The frequency of use of swing gates is divided into:

  • Residential use, in the case of private homes or villas, and is thus identified because the automation is operated a few times during the day;
  • Condominium use, specific in residential complexes with many families which consequently sees a continuous opening and closing of the gate during the day and night;
  • Work use, in the event that the gate is installed in front of a company or an industry where machines and heavy vehicles are constantly coming and going for work.
