10 Metre Gate Automated Using FAAC Equipment

FAAC : 07 December, 2010  (Application Story)
A heavy industry facility in Sheffield has had a sliding gate automated which covers a 10 metre span using three phase operator from FAAC
FAAC approved installer, Automatic Entry Systems, has recently completed its largest sliding gate installation using a FAAC 844 three-phase operator. Spanning an opening of 10 metres, the sliding gate provides access to the world's largest independently owned forgemaster, Sheffield Forgemasters International.

Having already completed several successful installations at the site, Automatic Entry Systems was awarded a contract to carry out a further two this year. Although differing in size, both installations are identically configured using one slide and one swing gate. This allows for the slide gate to be used only when required for heavy works traffic, while the smaller four metre swing gate controls access to the more frequent, regular traffic entering the site.

Jonathan Peasegood, managing director at Automatic Entry Systems said: "Our relationship with FAAC goes back 30 years and my father, Terry, was one of the first FAAC installers. For an installation of this size, we required a highly robust operator which could meet the demands of this application. The standard of FAAC's equipment has always been first-class and the support they offer is invaluable."

Both cost-effective and efficient, FAAC's 844 range of sliding gate operators are the ideal solution for controlling gates in demanding applications. A high level of durability is achieved through an oil-bath lubrication system which reduces the wear of the mechanical components and ensures smooth running of the gate. Exceptional safety features, include a special twin-disk, anti-crushing clutch and adjustable torque settings to optimise the minimum force required to operate the gate.

The swing gate is automated by two FAAC 400 SB operators which feature powerful hydraulics and two highly-sensitive by-pass valves to ensure maximum anti-crushing protection. In the event of power failure, both gates can be operated manually using the key-operated release device. Operational efficiency is maximised with the help of the 455D control board which provides a slowdown feature at the end of the opening and closing cycles. Access to both gates is controlled by radio transmitters and push button stations in the security office.

With more than 40 year's experience, FAAC is a world leader in gate and door automation. The company has manufacturing and development facilities in Italy and Ireland and distributes its products in more than 90 countries. Within the UK, FAAC (UK) based in Basingstoke is the market leader in residential and commercial markets, which it serves through a national network of approved installers, all trained to FAAC's high standards.
