Xpanda Driveway Gates

 

CRAFTSMEN BUILT DRIVEWAY GATES AVAILABLE FROM STOCK.

Bespoke gates are the domain of caftsmen, but as we all know craftsmen take time to produce results. Driveway gates have typical lead times of at least 6-8 weeks which can often lead to significant project delays. The Xpanda range of gates is the answer to this "bespoke delay".

By manufacturing gates in three popular styles and initially two standard sizes, the range still employs the same caftsman's skills but we are able to offer the gates ex-stock. This innoivative concept has been developed in response to requests from builders and developers who frequently require a quality product that is available to meet immediate demand off-the-shelf.

Matching pedestrian gates, steel posts as well as a conversion kit for underground operators are also available and it is usually possible to obtain a fully finished pair of Zpanda gates within 7 days.

FROG Underground gate operator

 

The underground gate motors can be operated by all the standard CAME accessories e.g. remote controls, push buttons, keypads etc.

In the eventuality of a power cut the FROG system has a key operated manual release mechanism which is conveniently situated on both the inside and outside of the gateway.

As its name implies this superb, much copied gate machine is designed to operate in damp, below ground level conditions. It is indeed the most popular machine with the discerning customer, who not only wants a long lasting reliable gate machine, but also does not want to see any type of armature attachment on the inside of the gates.

The FROG automation system can be fitted to new gateways or most pairs of existing gates that you may have. We are able to visit your gateway to professionally ensure that the ‘FROG’ automation system is the best possible solution for your requirement.

The FROG system is designed to automate either metallic or wooden gates and in every case the pivot arm becomes the bottom hinge for the gate. Once correctly installed, there is no apparent sign of the mechanism other than the lid of the foundation casing box, and it does not detract from the overall aesthetics of an attractive gateway.

The irreversible geared motor firmly locks the gates, unlike hydraulic machines which generally allow their pistons to “relax” and therefore must have an electric locking system which, with the passage of time, invariably becomes an extra thing to malfunction.
The ‘FROG’ underground gate machine is without doubt, the finest underground gate machine available in the world.


 

FERNI articulated arm gate operator

 

The FERNI articulated arm gate operator is designed to automate gates that are hung from large brick or stone pillars. The FERNI can be operated by all the standard CAME accessories e.g. remote controls, push buttons, keypads etc.

In the eventuality of a power cut the FERNI has a lever operated manual release mechanism which is situated on the motor casing. The simplicity of operation of a winding arm machine always ensures the fastest possible operating of the gate. A common application for the ‘FERNI’ motor is a situation, such as a gateway directly on a main road, where the gates’ opening time needs to be as quick as possible.

Undoubtedly, the 'FERNI' proves to be the fastest and most versatile external electro-mechanical operator.


 

ATI worm drive gate operator

 

The 'ATI' motors are extremely strong and able to cope with heavyweight gates. The strength of the ATI motor is achieved by the irreversibly geared worm drive mechanism. All the models can be operated by all the standard CAME accessories e.g. remote controls, push buttons, keypads etc. In the eventuality of a power cut the 'ATI machine has a key operated manual release mechanism.

 

A common application for the 'ATI' series would be to operate a traditional five bar wooden gate. A situation in which the 'ATI' series is very useful, is a pair of closed-in boarded gates in an exposed position, where the force of the wind will pose no problems to the strength of the 'ATI'.

The 'ATI' gate operator is a cost effective and efficient way of automating your gates.

 


UNIT worm drive gate operator

 

The 'UNIT' kit is a complete system for a pair of wing gates up to 1.8m each leaf and is most commonly used in small hinge geometry situations. The motors are worm driven and are very strong and provide very smooth operation.

The 'UNIT' kit is a cost effective method of providing a complete automation system for small hinge geometry gates. The kit also comes with a comprehensive installation guide.

 

The system consists of:-

  • 2 x 'UNIT' motors left and right hand
  • 1 x 240 volt control panel
  • 1 x radio receiver
  • 1 x tuned antenna
  • 2 x radio remote control transmitter handsets
  • 1 x pare of safety beams
  • 1 x keyswitch
  • 1 x flashing "in movement" light

 


KRONO

 

 

The strength of the KRONO motor is also achieved by the irreversibly geared worm drive mechanism. The KRONO motor can be operated by all the standard CAME accessories e.g. remote controls, push buttons, keypads etc. In the eventuality of a power cut the 'KRONO' machine has a key operated manual release mechanism.

 

The KRONO operator is also available in kit form.

The kit consists of:-

  • 2 x 'KRONO' motors left and right hand
  • 1 x 240 volt control panel
  • 1 x radio receiver
  • 1 x tuned antenna
  • 1 x radio remote control transmitter handset
  • 1 x pair of safety beams
  • 1 x keyswitch
  • 1 x flashing "in movement" light

BX-BK sliding gate systems

 

WHENEVER there is limited space in an entrance, an electric sliding gate which takes up little or no room is the ideal solution

WHENEVER the driveway entrance turns sharply to the right or the left and a wing type gate would form an obstruction to the turning vehicle, then an electric sliding gate is the ideal solution.

WHENEVER extra security is required and the driveway needs to be securely closed off by the electric gate, then the electric sliding gate forms the ideal solution.

The CAME range of electric sliding gate operators has a machine for every size of gate. Residential gates can be opened with the 'BX or 'BXE' machines and commercial gateways with the 'BK' range or the 'BY3500' series. The robust and reliable rack and pinion method of operation is very straightforward and can be used on metal or wooden gates.

The sophisticated electronic control panel can be programmed to accommodate timed auto-closure and partial opening to allow just pedestrian access and can accept wired low voltage signaling from the whole range of CAME accessories.

 

 

The installation of an electric sliding gate system is a little more involved than any other type of electric gate as it has to have more civil engineering done at the initial stage, but once the correct ground track and/or cantilever roller frames are installed, then the installation follows the same format as with other types of electric gates, continuing with the mechanical engineering stage of gate fabrication and gate mounting, followed by the final stage of electrical fixing and commissioning.

We are available to survey your gateway to recommend which sliding gate motor and gate will suit your individual requirement.

 


UNIV garage door operator

 

The 'UNIV' garage door operator is a comprehensive package of CAME equipment designed to automate new or existing horizontally tracked garage doors, which are the up and over type of door. It can automate doors from 1.8, wide to 6m wide (6' to 18'). The principle of the 'UNIV' is a rigid "C" section steel shaft containing a strong carrying chain which is connected by a bent "banana" arm to the centre point at the top of the door. This provides a powerful yet smooth operation to the balanced door.

 

It has a quiet 24 volt motor with an electronic control panel and limit switches. The limit switches not only cut off the motor at the top and bottom, but also decelerate the door when it reaches its final few inches of closure.

It has power sensitivity with an intelligent method of sensing an obstruction in the path of the door and can also accommodate extra intra-red safety beams if desired.

It has an integral light on a timer providing a small courtesy light within the garage as the door is operated. There is also a manual release mechanism, so that in the event of a power cut the door can be operated manually.

 

As well as operating horizontally tracked and sectional up and over doors, we have a version of the 'UNIV' that can open and close outward opening, swing type garage doors, called 'UNIV-Y'. At an additional cost to the basic 'UNIV' the 'UNIV-Y' provides a successful method of opening the traditional type of swing door to 90 degrees, with an efficient metal rod system attached to the higher level of both swing doors.

The system consists of:-

  • 1 x Motor unit with standard transmission arm and all accessories for installation
  • 1 x Incorporated control panel
  • 1 x Radio receiver
  • 1 x Antenna
  • 1 x Remote control transmitter handset
  • 1 x DOC P Weatherproof pushbutton

GARD automatic road barrier

 

CAME 'GUARD' units are electro-mechanical barriers, which are ideal for roadway vehicle control. They are extremely useful in directing and controlling traffic flow, unlike the security gate machines, they are designed as part of the parking products range and are fast and effective in restricting and allowing the passage of vehicles.

The 4m 'G4000', the 6m 'G6000' and the 12m 'G12000' barriers are all 24 volt D.C. powered from a built in transformer enabling them to provide heavy duty service. Special release keys are provided for power cut situations and due to their low voltage requirement, they can be fitted with battery back-up.
