- 500 Series Operator -
The 500 Series is a residential swing gate operator. As a light-duty operator, it should be subject to no more than 60 cycles per hour. This operator is recommended for gates 12 feet long or shorter that weight less than 1,500 lbs. Opening speed is approximately 12 seconds. It slows down the last 5 to 10 degrees of the swing.
Hydraulic locks in both the open and closed positions. For gates 12 feet in length, electric locks are recommended.
In some states and cities (in case of a power outage), the gate must be able to be pushed open by the fire ore emergency vehicle. We can take out the hydraulic check valve in the closed position. You must then use an electric lock to keep the gate closed.
With the operator mounted inside the property, the operator can be installed to swing inward or outward. Most mechanical operators must be mounted on the side the gate will swing toward.
