Sliding Gate Motor Guide

What can affect the Effective Gate Weight of your Sliding Gate?

Most of our Sliding Gate designs tend to physically weigh between 100 and 200kg however the Effective Gate Weight can be affected by numerous factors:

SPEED

The faster it goes, the greater the load.

SLOPE

The greater the incline, the heavier it is.

WIND

Wind force against in-fills adds load.

TIMBER

Timber palings or in-fills absorb water increasing overall weight.

HARDWARE

Old, unmaintained hardware can effect the smooth running of a gate which in turn increases its effective weight.

INSTALLATION

If your track isn’t straight or the motor misaligned then EGW will increase.

GATE STYLE

Cantilever & Telescopic gates are much harder to get moving then standard Sliding Gates.

Swing Gate Motor Guide

What can affect the Effective Gate Weight of your Swing or Double Gates?

Most of our Swing Gate designs tend to physically weigh between 80 and 160kg per leaf. The Effective Gate Weight can be affected by different factors including:

INFILLS

Gates with solid infill panels or the majority of the surface area made up of “infill” make the gate act like a sail and can put massive force on the motor.

HINGES

Rusty, misaligned or unlubricated hinges make the motor work harder.

GATE LENGTH

Longer gates gather more momentum and put more strain on the hinges compared to tall narrow gates of the same weight.

SPEED

The faster you push, the more force is needed.

HINGE SELECTION

Automated swing gates using linear drive motors (WG10S/WG20S) puts a lot of force on hinges. Be sure to get our advice on the right Hinge choice for your particular Swing gate.
