Thanks to today’s technological advancements, getting power to something such as a gate site can be as easy as using a solar panel or even a deep cycle marine battery. If you use your gate 15 times a day or less and you don’t require a telephone entry system, then that means that a solar powered gate will be as efficient as 110 volt A.C. with only a 20 watt panel. Sometimes it is necessary to add more panels with multiple access controls or to even add accessories that draw power from batteries if you intend for the gate to open more than 15 times a day.
Many of the swing gate openers that NYC Rolling Gates carries run from a battery which can be charged one of two ways: either by a solar panel or from electricity being run directly to the gate. Things such as slide gate openers run directly from a wired power source but will often times utilize the batteries as back up just in case there is a power outtage.
Aside from the easy installation and use of solar and power gates, there are other pros to having them. They are very “green” and environmentally friendly. Solar panels especially are by the most earth-friendly and not only that, but they last forever and will rarely require maintenance is installed correctly.
We firmly believe that solar powered gates are the way of the future and will continue to increase in popularity as more and more people become more eco-conscious. Sure it’s possible to try and install a solar powered gate by yourself but it definitely isn’t easy. Why not let the professionals handle it and ensure that you and your home will continue to be safe no matter what.
