Sliding gate motor
Before installing motors in sliding gates, it is important to know both the condition of the gate and the space where the motor will be installed.Learn more
Consideration should be given to where the motor will be installed before purchasing it, as it needs a good anchor to the ground that will not move or become loose over time.
Normally the motor is placed just below the rollers that hold the sliding gate, as this will ensure optimum performance and correct use over time.
What to consider before automating your sliding gate
It is also necessary to check the gate where the sliding gate motor is to be installed. A distance of 9 to 15 centimetres from the ground to the bottom of the rack tooth is required in order for the motor pinion to fit properly. The distance to be left will depend on the motor model used.
ERREKA recommends choosing a motor with greater maximum drag weight than the weight of the gate. This will ensure the motor has plenty of power to move the gate, meaning less wear than if it at the very limit.
Type of use (intensive or residential) is another factor to take into account in the motor model, with the intensive type recommended for neighbourhood communities, parking lots, etc., and the residential type for family homes or small businesses.
This will ensure the motor continues to move the gate with the same ease thanks to its superior capacity, even despite the wear caused by dust or rain.
Motors for residential sliding gates
Motors for sliding gates are used almost exclusively in exterior entrances in the residential sector. They are ideal for this role, as they are very safe and also offer very fast opening, making them very convenient.
Our motors stand out for their safety, in addition to offering other features such as precision and speed.
Motors for industrial sliding gates
In the industrial sector, motors for sliding gates are used in exterior and residential accesses as they take up very little space. They are also very safe and are not affected by the wind.
They are therefore suitable for industrial or residential use, since our motors are fitted with safety systems to protect the user from any collisions or trapping.
