Underground operators provide discreet automation of your entrance gates. The gate motors are mounted in load bearing foundation boxes with the motor pivot effectively becoming the bottom hinge of the gate. Underground operators have the advantage of being able to open to up to 180 degrees and also have integrated open and close stops to avoid the need for physical stops in the centre of the driveway which can be a hazard for both vehicles and pedestrians.
There are two types of underground operators, electro mechanical and hydraulic. The electro mechanical are the most popular and most frequently used and provide many years of trouble free operation providing they are regularly serviced and not subjected to flooding. Where water levels are a concern hydraulic operators can be the solution being able to work completely submerged without damage.
