Swing Gate Kits


The Adavantage Double Gate Kits consists of:

  • 2 x Advantage articulated arm operators

The Proteco Advantage articulated arm kits are quick and easy to install and ideal for DIY installation or gates installed between brick or stone pillars with leaves up to two metres each, especially where the Ace or Leader can’t be fitted. May be fitted to gates that open outwards. Opening angles to 130° may be achieved dependent on gate hinge position. The operators are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed. See graph for gate leaf weights.

Gear-motors for outdoor use, for the automation of swing gates. Suitable for big dimensioned pillars with maximum distance between the hinges' axis and the gate's corner of 30 cm. Easy guided installation, with adjustable accessories and brackets.

Incorporated release key. Pivoted arm transmission adjustable and anti-shearing safety. The perfect integration of its components ensures the greatest quietness.

It is designed for intensive use by using a die-casting structure made of quality aluminium, stainless steel, bronze and steel. The fluid-grease lubrication system and the built-in thermal protection ensure a long-lasting working life in any weather conditions without the need for periodic maintenance.

These diagrams show the gates closed and the operators fixed to the inside edge of each pillar (inside the property). The plan view diagrams below show the operator and gate closed and open. The dimension A, between the pillar mounting face of the operator and the centre line of the gate, can be up to 300mm. Dimension B is recommended to be 30mm.

Installation Hint:

When fitting the gate brackets to a wooden gate, we recommend that you insert stainless steel tubing (just large enough to sleeve the mounting bolt threads, and 1mm shorter than the thickness of the wood) through the gate mounting holes. This will prevent over-tightening of the mounting bolts, and also avoid the repetitive push-pull on the mounting bolts from damaging the wood.

Only a single gate? Not sure if you need a right-hand kit or left-hand kit? The motor is usually mounted on the inside of the property for security; so view the gates from inside the property looking outwards (the gates will normally, but not always, swing toward you). If the hinge appears on the left, you need a left-hand kit; if it's on the right you need a right-hand kit.

Options include: underground exit loop (detects the presence of a guest’s vehicle and automatically opens the gates for them); extra photocells; additional key fobs; intercom kit; long range (external) aerial; flashing beacon.
