3 Advantages To Modern Electric Gate Motors

There was a time not that long ago when electric fence gates were an exclusive luxury, most commonly seen only in large commercial properties or opulent homes. However, over the last few years, remote controlled automated entrances have become a much more common sight. The prices of capable gate motors have continued to fall while their capabilities have continued to evolve, making them an attractive option in a host of new applications.

Here are just a few of the reasons these once-rare fencing additions have seen a surge in popularity.

Enhanced Security

Often viewed as the number one reason to install gates in general, added security is a big part of what makes a remote controlled egress such an alluring option. The fact is that the vast majority of manual gates are rarely closed, be it because of their size, weight or simply the convenience of leaving them open at all times. This results in an inherent vulnerability to any property with a fence intended, even only in part, for security. Automating the process allow users to easily control the entrance and exit a property while maintaining the integrity of the enclosure at all times.


Many people view electric gate motors as exclusively a luxury item, and while that's no longer an accurate depiction, automated gates do provide owners with a number of convenience advantages. Property owners no longer have to exit a securely locked vehicle to enter their home or business, or walk outside to allow guests to enter. In addition, many modern motors include options that allow for automatic closure, once again enhancing both convenience and security.

Today's Gate Motors Offer Additional Safety Features

With the size and weight of many modern fence gates, safety is always a concern. Fortunately, manufacturers have responded by including a host of advanced safety features with most high quality gate motors. Special sensors are able to determine when there is an obstruction in the way during closing and opening, while adjustable operational speed settings ensure that gates don't swing or slide too quickly.

Choosing the proper gate motor for your fencing project can be tricky so it's often best to work with an experienced provider like Triple Star. Factors ranging from the size of your opening to the materials and weight of your gate will all need to be considered, so contact Triple Star today for help in making the ideal choice.
