Worm driven gate operators are ideal for large and heavy swing gates. They are powerful and reliable machines that will offer years of exceptional service.
They are attached to the gate posts and pivot around that attachment point and use a screw type movement to shorten the dimensions and open the gate.
Worm drive motors are ideal if you decide to retro-fit automation at a later date. They are strong, reliable and durable, and only require periodic maintenance.
Whilst they are perfect for wooden gates, if you decide to have wrought iron gates fitted to the front of your premises, worm drive motors might not be the most desirable solution as the motor arm will be visible through the gaps in the bars.
If aesthetics are of primary concern, we recommend having underground motors fitted instead.
