Gate Automation FAQs

Can I automate an existing gate?

Existing gates are not a problem; almost all gates can be automated provided that they are in good condition. If you require advice or want a free survey please contact us.

How reliable are gate automation systems?

Gate automation systems are extremely reliable but time must be spent at the planning stage to ensure that the user needs are accommodated.

As with most things, there are many manufacturers in the market offering different features and quality; our product range enables us to ensure every gate is fitted with suitable equipment. If you need further information please contact us.

Are Automatic gates safe?

A gate installed by Patron Security Ltd will be safe.  The system can then be designed to protect people, animals and vehicles by including safety features such as photocells, induction loops or safety edges. New “amperometric sensing” also adds safety to gates by detecting obstacles in the path of the gates once the gates were in motion. If the gates struck an obstacle and met resistance they will stop moving.  Our experienced engineers will advise you of possible risks relating to your particular gates.

Why have gate automation?

Automatic gates provide you with flexible control of access to your property, increased privacy and security. In addition to the convenience factor, they also enhance the appearance of your property and add to its market value.

A closed & locked gate is a big deterrent for would be burglars and many insurance companies will take into account the security benefit of a reliable security gate.

Electromechanical or Hydraulic?

Hydraulic systems are still known to be more reliable, with a longer life expectancy and heavier duty cycles. However, improvements in electromechanical manufacturing techniques have made this type of operator very cost effective and reliable, ideal for most domestic and commercial installations.
