Automation Styles

Jacksons' gates come in a wide variety of automation types. Gates can be operated from underground, through hydraulic rams or concealed in a stile. This gives you the choice of how you want your new automated gate to open at your home or business. The different types of automation can be crucial if you are looking for optimum safety. Whether you are a residential or commercial consumer we will have the right automation function to suit your needs. They can be maintained easily and will provide the perfect peace of mind when fully installed.

An underground operator is situated at ground level by each gatepost and is ideal for both residential and commercial premises. Jacksons' option features a magnetic locking system, a maximum opening of 180 degrees, and is suitable for 1,800 operations a day. What's more, our underground operators are fully CE accredited, conforming to the Machinery Directive 2006/46/EC. Hydraulic ram operators are available for electric and are ideal if you are purchasing gates up to seven metres. They are attached to the gate for applications that require high performance. Jacksons offer custom designed hydraulic ram operators to individual site requirements.

Full concealed operators are one of the biggest sellers Jacksons has to offer and gives you the ultimate resolution for a covered system. These are perfectly suited to vertical bar gates that scale up to 2.5m wide per leaf. They include a 'touch stop' feature, free-running in the event of a power failure as well as magnetic locking and a maximum opening of 180 degrees.
