We recently completed a Sliding Gate System on Heavy Wrought Iron Gate on a Stud Farm in Co Meath.
The owners told me the Gate has a bit of history, in fact the gate at one time was two gates, or a pair of swing gates on a farm belonging to there grandfather in North County Dublin and are about one hundred and fifty years old. They have been in there present location since 1996.
It was a real privilege to be asked to automate such a fantastic Gate that has a bit of history to it.
We used a Ditec Cross 18 motor, it is the largest single phase motor available from Ditec and is rated at 1800 Kg for intensive use, a perfect work horse for these gates.
