Gate Operator Accessories

Accessories to Gate Operators:


Loops and Loop Detectors:

These devices are perfect for detecting vehicle traffic while on top of the loop. Designed to open a closed gate, keep an open gate open, or reverse a closing gate to full open, loop detectors will provide both safety and access for vehicles. Wired to the swing or slide gate operator, the detector can be adjusted for frequency and sensitivity. Loops (sold separately) are installed in the pavement below the vehicle and wired to the detector.

Battery Back-up:

Designed for safety and security, a battery back-up can be installed in the operator to allow functionality when the power goes out. The back-up unit will sense the loss of power and respond with closing the gate (fail secure) or open the gate (fail safe). Larger systems will provide repeated yet limited operation for opening and closing the gate after a power loss.
