Foundations for Mounting Gate Openers and Arm Gates
Most installations for all types of gate operators are mounted on a concrete pad. The concrete pad should be made of 3000psi or 6-sack concrete which has cured for two weeks. The concrete pad should be 6 inches thick and have at least 4 inches of cover for the rebar and anchor bolts on all four sides. It is convenient to pour the concrete pad ahead of time and add the anchor bolts after the pad has cured. Once the operator bolt pattern is laid out use a electric hammer drill and drill 3/8" to 1/2" holes that do not completely go through the pad. Then install any of the commonly available wedge anchors into the holes and bolt the unit down.
One last consideration are soil conditions and how deep to make the pad. The pad thickness should extend below the frost line. so that in the Winter water that will get under the pad will not freeze and cause freeze lifting of the pad. This lifting action will eventually make the pad uneven year round.

Moveable Foundations
Barrier gates have the ability to be moved if placed on a Moveable Foundation. Since the arm has no attachment points and swings freely in the air the unit can be moved as long as the base that holds it is heavy enough to keep it stable. The base can be made to be moved with a forklift or a tractor loading bucket. Once placed the unit can be connected with a simple tool power cord plugged into a GFI distribution box. This is required to prevent the possible electrocution.

Gate Background

 Barrier gates are an easy way to ensure the security of private premises and can be used for all sized properties. They are very commonplace have found their niche in the market today. For those who find the security of their premises (be it residential or commercial) important, it is the best way to go. Doorking
There is a decrease in the cost and their installation. Aside from the basic kits, there are now many features that can be added to ensure s
ecurity  as well as make them more convenient

The Gate Motor

Linear BGU & BGU-D
The backbone of any operator, whether automatic or not, is the electric gate motor, the electric device which actually enables the gate arm to open and close without having to manually push the gate. All types of electric gates and barriers make use of a motor of some kind. There are many different kinds of electric gate motors. They differ in design, power and use. Depending on the type of gate you have, the suitable electric gate motor will also differ. Some manufacturers allow for increasing the arm length by using a splice assembly to add two tube arms together to make a longer arm.

Gates and Security

Barrier gates alone, however solid and imposing they may be, cannot guarantee a totally secure environment. They are recommended to be used in combination with other security features to install a full security system. A few of these features are closed circuits with security cameras, additional gates in conjunction with the main gate, electronic keycards and keypads, security guards.
Aside from the additional security features that should go with this class of gates they often offer safety features like sensors that determine when there is an obstruction to prevent the electronic gate from swinging into a vehicle or closing on somebody's hands. to prevent the electronic gates from being damaged by irresponsible drivers driving fast speed bumps are also commonly placed before gate entrances to slow down vehiclesfaac
