863 Gate Drive for Swing Gates

Project Description

The Type 862 and 863 Gate Drives for Swing Gates

These gate drives are used by prisons, diplomatic and royal premises and control entry to industrial premises throughout the UK and overseas. Non standard versions are available to suit extreme climates.

Compatible with most forms of electronic control including card readers, audioporter, proximity readers and ground loop controllers for auto-exit or inhibit re-close. Remote control from reception/guardroom can be supplied via open/close/stop control switching with status sensing indication.

Generally speaking, the 863 is used on large gates for high usage sites or gates which have a high wind resistance, i.e. palisade or solid gates. The 862 automates the average gate with vertical infill bars (typical size 2m high x 3m wide). Single gates requiring a higher level of security should use the 523 gatelock in addition to this gatedrive.

Note: Gate drives are normally fitted on the secure side with inward opening swing gates.
