Driveway Gates are the Barrier between you and the outside world. Made from Steel, Aluminum, Wood and PVC these gates can be simple and straight forward to an ornamental masterpiece. Whatever your choice of gate is somehow it needs to be opened and closed and that’s where Diamond Door Systems comes in.
Today’s Gated communities and private driveways as well as parking lots have become part of the automated world we live in. With that we have a totally new responsibility to create safe and efficient gate Automation.
Gate Automation comes in many varieties depending on the type of gate you have how it moves and of course budget. Swing gates are one of the most popular designs for residential driveways and gated communities offering the most design flexibility. Automating swing gates can be built with three different configurations. Most common is the linear drive operators that work very similar to the closer on a storm door.
The drive piston works on Hydraulic power or screw drive shaft. Made to blend in this operator design is sleek and works well with most gate designs. Articulating Arm operators are more common on very large gates or heavy gates. They have a central mounted box with an arm that pushes and pulls. With less esthetic appeal than the linear drive Arms these machines still get the job done. For those gate designs that simply must have no mechanics that are visual, Diamond Door Systems carry’s the underground Hydraulic Operator. This very powerful almost invisible design offers the highest level of discreetness and power. These European made units can move literally a TON of gate with no problem and are also ideal in commercial application because of their reliability in High cycle usage.
