Openers for swing gates
Swing gates can be automated with two types of motors: linear motors or articulated arm motors. A linear opener has a spindle that slides in or out, causing the gate wing to move.
The gate opener is attached to the side where the gate wing turns. Usually that’s the inside. A linear opener can be mounted quickly and easily.
Are the gate wings hanging between columns? Then it is difficult to mount a lineare gate opener and you better choose a articulated arm opener. A articulated arm opener opens the wing by pushing or pulling it.
A articulated arm consists of two parts that hinge in the middle.
