Our “Fancy Fence” retractable gate quietly “disappears” when you want to open your property up to visitors or family, and then, just as quietly, raises again to afford you security and privacy.
The gate span and drive mechanism are located in a prefabricated reinforced concrete vault in the ground. The way that this vault has been produced, as well as the grade of concrete used, guarantee that it is 100% sealed and that it is impossible for ground water to get into the vault.
From the top, the precast vault is covered by removable covers with holes cut out to match the shape and arrangement of span elements that will pass through these holes. The central cover has an additional service opening that enables easy access to the drive for maintenance purposes or for emergency opening or closing of the gate.
The span of the gate is connected to large counterweights through a system of cables and pulleys, where the weight of the counterweights is equal to the weight of the span. This design enables the use of conventional and easily available low power electric drives, which guarantees reliability, ease of operation and maintenance of the entire drive system.
The complete unweighting of the gate span on the one hand makes it possible to use extremely low power electric drives. On the other hand, it makes it necessary to stabilize the span vertically with guide rails and wheels, as is the case with sliding gate systems. Proven sub-assemblies were used for this, however in the vertical plane rather than horizontally. All of the metal components that make up the gate mechanism are made from steel that has been protected against the elements by the application of a number of protective coatings.
PRINCIPLES OF INSTALLATION
Prior to the installation of the gate, the parameters of the ground and the possibility of encountering buried infrastructure or tree roots needs to investigated. Prior to installation a thorough verification of the actual installation conditions is required. If necessary, appropriate actions need to be carried out, e.g. partial or complete replacement of the soil, the use of additional reinforcement of land or a slight change in the location of the gate in order to avoid any potential issues.
