Information and frequently asked questions about door & gate automations.
We have put together some information so you get a better understanding on what our products offer. If you need to discuss our door automations further, please call us or visit our Geelong showroom.
Commonly used for domestic use, a tracked sliding gate has the option of opening from the left or right.
These gates are swung from posts via hinges with motors on both sides of the gates for automation purposes.
Used widely for commercial applications, these sliding gates have no track or overhead rail across the opening. It is cantilevered from behind the gate opening which is suspended.
Commonly used for commercial and industrial applications, cable gates can be operated via remote intercom, swipe card and detection loop devises.
These are a great solution for high traffic areas such as parking lots and industrial zones or where barriers operate continually at certain times of the day.
Automatic domestic gates
These gates are a quick and convenient way to enter and exit your domestic property. They provide a high level of security and come with an easy-to-use hand transmitter, keypad or detection loop device. Door automation can vary with sliding and swing gates, with options including solar power and battery back-up.
Card reader and access control
We supply and install all types of card readers and pedestals designed for access car parks, shopping centres and restricted areas.
These are primarily used for commercial and industrial vehicle egress so they can enter and exit with the use of safety devices.
We supply, install and service turnstiles with galvanised and powder coated finishes. Manufactured in stainless steel, these turnstiles are suited to all access control systems.
Often used as a convenient way of entering and exiting commercial industrial and shop front premises, these doors come in single, bi-fold and sliding variables.
Solar gate systems
Solar systems can be used in conjunction with all types of automatic gates as an alternative to running 240v power. They are powered by sunlight, and batteries are used to store the power. We can provide you with a custom-made solar powered gate system to suit your specific needs.
Here at Door and Gate Automations, we service all door automations and gates. We can also offer competitive service maintenance contracts to those of you located in Geelong, Melbourne and the western districts. Please note that you should have your gates serviced yearly to ensure optimum performance and to avoid costly repairs and breakdowns.
