Gate Automation Systems We Install From CAME & FAAC

Below are a selection of products from CAME & FAAC that we currently install.  All our systems have been selected over the years for their reliability and longevity.

We will typically recommend a system type during our site survey, depending on the requirements of the site & operation.
To book a site survey please contact us.

FAAC Genius Euro BAT 424 (Manufactured by FAAC)

  • Discrete & rugged design. 
    Cast aluminium housing & stainless steel.
    Most of the Euro BAT systems we have installed are still working 20 years later. (Design has not changed much since 1995).

     

  • Typically installed on farm style gates. (5 bar).
     

  • Can handle gates up to 4m long. 
     

  • Obstacle detection. (36v current sensing).
     

  • Fast Action. Variable speed. 
     

  • Manual release uses a security allen key.
     

  • FAAC E124 Control board & directional photocells
     

  • Thanks to our long relationship with FAAC we can provide this system with the improved FAAC control board & photocells.
    This is a fundamentally different system to that you can find online. (which uses the older control equipment).

  • Obstacle detection. (36v current sensing). 
     

  • Capable of handling gate leaves of up to 3m with an electric lock.
     

  • Optional limit switches control where the gate / door opens. so no mechanical stop required.
     

  • Can be used on a garage door, opens doors up to 170 degrees.

CAME FROG AE 230v / 24v  (Electro Mechanical)

  • Discrete Underground electromechanical operator with built in open & close stops. Best electro mechanical motor & foundation box design we have encountered with practically no flaws. (CAME thought of everything that could go wrong & fixed it).
     

  • Our default option for underground installations 
     

  • Operating time:  15 to 18 Seconds to 90 degrees. (24v / 230v)
     

  • Obstacle detection, via the encoders on the motors
     

  • Long life low maintenance system with Stainless steel foundation box. (always specified but optional).
     

  • Exceptionally durable aluminium motor construction. Typical motor life is 10 to 20 years depending on drainage & maintenance.
    If stainless steel foundation have been chosen new motors can be dropped in without issue. 
     

  • Manual release uses a simple lever key system that can never jam or seize even if neglected. Please leave the leaver key somewhere accessible where you can't lose it. (if you lose it during a power cut the gate can't be opened).

    24v variant has a battery backup option & is used for intensive applications.
     

  • Reliable CAME ZM3E Control System.

CAME Frog Plus

  • Designed for large oversized gates. 
     

  • The Motor can handle 5 - 7 meter gates without issue. 
     

  • 1200KG gate MAX
     

  • Obstacle detection. (encoder). BUT given its torque additional safety devices are required.
     

  • Operating time: 30 Seconds to 90 degrees. 
     

  • Only for intermittent use. (12 operations an hour). 
     

  • Extreme Strength & durability, Steel & aluminium construction. Box is 6mm steel, Motor is secured buy 6 M12 bolts. Link arm is x3 times the size of the standard came Frog. 
     

  • Manual release: Standard CAME Hex Key lever release on a longer arm. 
     

  • This motor and foundation box weighs about 75 kg. (thankfully it comes with a hook for an engine crane). 
     

  • CAME ZM3E control system.
     

  • Most powerful single phase motor on the market.

Powered Pedestrian Gate BFT E5N

  • Design is ideal for powered pedestrian gates. The operator is linked to the gate via an arm, & exerts a constant force to open & close the gate. This force can be easily be overpowered by a human should the gate get in the way with no damage to the system, or person. 
     

  • Magnetic locking system releases in the event of a power cut.
     

  • Should power loss occur the gate can be slowly pushed open. without damage. 
     

  • A Maglock holds the gate closed when the operator is not in operation.
     

  • E145 Control board.

FAAC C721 Sliding Gate 
 

  • Nearly twice as fast as 230v systems. 18m/s vs 9m/s
     

  • 800kg Weight limit, for heavy gates.
     

  • Keyed manual release. (only on C721)
     

  • Obstacle detection (24v Current sensing)
     

  • Magnetic limit switches on control board.
     

  • Can be set to automatically disengage during a power failure. (so you won't be trapped outside). 
     

  • Can be used for intensive applications.
     

  • We always use welded steel track for strength.

Additional information

Given there are just two of us, we usually only fit the automation & intercom systems. For the gates we recommend contacting a fencer / steel fabricator, to install the gate posts & gate. We will provide some technical information on the hinge position & advice on the type of gate that would be suitable for your location. I have listed two contractors we normally work with below.
 

If you wish to have a chat Monday is the best time as we are in the office all day. (Admin day).
 

New wooden gates:

Here are the contact details for Markus Boon: (Fences Gates & posts)
You can reach him via email at marcus.boon@btinternet.com
Or phone: 07890526555

He installs gates & posts from forest products, the catalogue is available online : http://www.forest-products.co.uk/gates/single-gates/
 

New Steel Gates:

If you are after a bespoke fabricated steel gate, we recommend Stokes Welding in Prestbury info@stokeswelding.co.uk  01242 528044 or      07766 257115 ask for Wayne. They can fabricate and install any steel gate to your specification.
 

Should Stokes Welding be unable to sort things out in a timely manner, I would also recommend Clive Lewis from C Lewis Fabrications. 
His number is 07966 425841 or 01452 715111 he is based in Staverton Gloucestershire. Email: clivelewis@blueyonder.co.uk

 

Automation system:

This depends on what gate you wish to install & the aesthetic that is desired. Underground operators such as the FAAC 770N are the most discreet but do cost more due to the labour involved. Whilst the FAAC S418 & Genius BAT 324 are our most common preference for above ground installations.

We typically recommend a site visit or some photos if it is a general enquiry, to work out the following questions:
 

If you wish to get in touch please give us a call, or if we are on site please fill out the contact form & I will get back to you as soon as I can. (Mondays at the very latest, typically if I have time I will try to get back to you in the evening when I get back from site).
