How to choose an Electric Gate Motor:

There are a myriad of different brand gate motors on the market, ranging in price from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. How do you choose which is right for you? Historically, the European manufacturers pioneered gate motor back in the 1970s. They were initially only a commercial proposition as they were large and expensive. By the 1990s, there were a handful of large reputable manufacturers exporting to Australia. Some of these were BFT/Somfy, FAAC, GBD and Came, and some smaller Italian manufacturers. Then there are a couple of Australian manufacturers who have been making reliable commercial motors for many years. GDS in Adelaide manufacture superior industrial quality motors, and are strong, fast and reliable for commercial industrial applications. If you choose any of these brands, you can rest assured that you are getting a quality European or Australian product backed up by many years of manufacturing experience. BFT has its own office in Australia, offer a 2 year warrantee, and will back up their product with spare parts for a decade or longer. We use and recommend BFT, FAAC and GDS gate motors. These are not cheap motors, but quality products which work well and will give you more than a decade of reliable service.

Then there are a myriad of Asian manufacturers who have been making motors only for a few years at the most, and their product varies considerably in quality. You can expect some of these to last weeks to a few months, others will give you a couple of years service or longer. When they break, do not expect to be able to buy spare parts for them. If you purchase a motor from a supplier or installer who wants to sell you a gate motor without one of these European brand names, they are probably selling you a cheap Asian motor. Let the buyer beware! There are several steps to properly installing automatic gate systems which will function well for a decade or longer. Make sure your installer is experienced. If he is using a quality European motor, it is an indicator that he expects to still be in business next year, as he will want to be installing a product that he can warrantee without going out of business.

We have the benefit of professional training by the manufacturer and the experience of installing many hundred gate motors. We warrantee everything we do for 2 years, so we will be installing your gate motor with the expectation of servicing it for free in the first 2 years, and then maintaining it for a decade or longer.

There are several different motors which may work for your application. Which is right for you? Look for indicators such as the length and weight of your gate and the frequency of use. Do you have masonry pillars, or posts to hang them from? There will be a gate motor suitable for your application below.
