Underground electric gate motors are the most common automatic gate opener in Ireland and the Uk. They are popular for their aesthetics mainly, as the gate motors are hidden under the gate itself. Most of the Underground gate operators are capable of carrying a larger weight than other gate automation systems[ ie overground gate operators such as rams and articulated gate operators.] There are 2 main types of underground gate kits
Electro mechanical and Hydraulic gate kits, the most common gate operator is the electro mechanical. Electro Mechanical gate motors are lower cost to purchase initially compared to hydraulic electric gate automation kits, however, hydraulic gate automation has less moving parts and are designed to be easily repaired rather than replaced. Electro Mechanical Gate operators are not suited for large blind or sheathed (closed boarded gates) and are mainly suited to Iron residential electric gates.
Hydraulic gate operators such as the bft sub kit is more suited to blind or wooden gates. Electric gate motor kits mainly come in 2 voltages, mains or low 230volt automatic gate operators and 24volt or 12volt gate kits, Safety is the main reason for choosing 24/12 volt gate operators as the safety settings are more advanced than 230 volt gate kits.
