If you have a sliding gate on your property, a slide gate opener can make your life much easier. These gate openers are designed specifically for sliding gates and are chain driven. With a bracket for the chain on the front and back of the gate, the operator simply moves the chain back and forth on a sprocket. Within the slide gate opener category, you will find both AC motor and DC motor openers. AC motors are known for their strength and are available in different sizes and voltages, including three phase. They have been around for a long time and have a proven track record. DC motor gate operators, on the other hand, are newer to the industry and offer more flexibility, consume less power, and can be used with solar panels. If you are unsure which slide gate opener to choose, our team is here to assist you.
