  4. Can your gates be automated to open and close remotely?

Can your gates be automated to open and close remotely?

Yes. All of our gates are “operator friendly” which means we don’t have to do anything special to the gate in order for you to attach a motorized arm to the gate. We do not sell the automation products. Instead we recommend contacting a national brand with a local office in your jurisdiction because you’re probably going to want some type of service agreement with gate automation products. We’ve been recommending national brands like MightyMule, LiftMaster, Apollo and Viking to our customers, for years.

It is critical that you attach your locally purchased automation equipment to a super-duper, heavy duty additional horizontal rail added to the gate.  This is where the Double Channel Mid Rail option solves the problem.  Simply add it  when configuring any of our single gates, double gates or estate gates and you’re all set!

GreatFence does not assume liability for improper, unintended, or illegal use of its products. For example, we will not be responsible for damage done to your gate if the motorized arm is attached  to the vertical pickets.
