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).

CAME ATS (2020)

  • Sturdy Aluminium design from CAME that has inbuilt opening & closing limit switches negating the requirement for external stops in the ground.

  • Reliable CAME ZL65 control board. 

  • Limit switches electrically disconnect motor at the end of travel reducing stress on the operator.

  • Obstacle detection. (via motor encoder). 

  • Fast Action (35v DC). 

  • Fitted with a custom steel bracket to suit site requirements. 

  • Max gate length 3m (standard) or 5m (longer version)

FAAC 390

  • Electromechanical operator with an arm. The motor & gearbox are positioned on a stone pillar & linked to the gate via the arm. Ideal for use on existing wrought iron gates.

  • Operating time: 11 Seconds to 90 degrees. 

  • Rated for High intensity commercial use. 

  • 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. 

  • Can be fitted with bespoke fabricated steel arms to operate gates on very large pillars. 

  • E124 Control board.

FAAC 390 Motor
Frog AE 230v

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
Or phone: 07890526555

He installs gates & posts from forest products, the catalogue is available online :

New Steel Gates:

If you are after a bespoke fabricated steel gate, we recommend Stokes Welding in Prestbury  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:


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).
