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.
Barrier gates have the ability to be moved if placed
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.
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.
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 security
as well as make them more convenient
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
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 vehicles
