- 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.
Residential Hydraulic Operator. For gate leaf's up to 12 feet in length. Electric locks are recommended.
Some states and cities require (in case of a power outage), that the gate must be able to be pushed open by the fire or emergency vehicle. Our Manual Bypass screw allows for hand operation and keeps your operator current with local laws. Check valves can also be removed if needed, however, will require electronic locks to ensure safety and protection.
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.
