How to Choose the Right Electric Swing Gate Opener?
With countless swinging gate opener models available today, choosing the right type for your property can be a task in itself. There are several factors to consider when choosing your new swinging gate motor, and the most important aspects to consider include:
Weight of The Gate
This is arguably the most important factor when it comes to choosing appropriate swing gate openers for your installation. The swing gate motor must be able to carry the weight of the gates easily. While some motors might be able to swing gates open and closed for a period, but conk out after a while, it’s probably because they’re bearing a weight inappropriate for their design.
Depending on the location of your gates, you’ll also need to consider how your swing gate opener draws its power. Some models are integrated directly into the power grid, while some are battery operated or solar-powered. If your property has specific requirements, especially when it comes to powering your swinging gates, such as it’s out on the farm or too far away from a power source, solar options can be a good choice.
Features and Design
While this aspect can be more subjective for each property owner, swing gate motors come in their own unique quirks and features. From the size, shape and finish of the automatic swing gate opener body, all the way to underground options and control board integration, there will still be a couple of variables from this aspect.
