A Typical Swing Gate System
Most users will have a system similar to this. The system consists of; A pair of gates, A pair of gate operators, a control panel with electronics for operating the gates, a couple of remote controls and an intercom or numeric keypad plus a pair of photoelectric cells for safety.
The gates will usually be operated with a ‘single hit’ option, whereby the gates open when you press the remote control and close automatically after a short preset delay allowing you time to proceed through the entrance.
