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:
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.
Rusty, misaligned or unlubricated hinges make the motor work harder.
Longer gates gather more momentum and put more strain on the hinges compared to tall narrow gates of the same weight.
The faster you push, the more force is needed.
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.
