Reliability & Durability
The APC-SG24W Heavy Duty 24V DC motor is a powerful unit built from reliable components consisting of all metal gears (no nylon or plastic), unlike most competitors models. The DC motor is fitted with a steel worm drive and works in conjunction with the metal transfer gearbox and metal pinnion to ensure the highest durability and strength in the operation of the sliding gate.
Designed in Australia, this system is engineered to last a long life and carries a full 12 months Warranty.
This Sliding gate motor is IP57 rated meaning that it can handle temporary water immersion of up to 1 metre (3 feet) of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. This makes it the ideal choice for users wanting maximum protection to their sliding gate motor and for areas which are flood prone. The motor does not have any protruding components and is completely concealed and water tight with all mechanical components built in undernath the motor cover. Please see further information below.
Magnetic Limit switches
The motor is fitted with magnetic limit switches to ensure two things:
1. A watertight seal around the motor to stop dust, water and insects from getting into the motor as there is no open areas or protruding components such as limit switches (magnetic limit switches built-in underneath the motor cover).
2. Wear and Tear are minimised due to less mechanical workings.
Easy to use manual override with 3 keys supplied, simply unlock with the key, pull the lever and the gate will be free and can be opened manually in the case of an emergency or a power outage.
24V DC Motors with All Metal Gears (No Nylon or Plastic)
This Heavy Duty 24V DC motors are constructed of all solid metal gears. The worm drive, gearbox and pinnion are all constructed of solid metal ensuring strength and durability. Please see pictures above.
This Motor can handle heavy gates up to a maximum of 500kg. Please note: This gate motor can handle a sliding gate up to 500kg in weight, but this weight capacity is variable and based on the width of the gate, the design (open frame, cladded, colour bond sheet) and how level the ground is. All of these factors which differ in every installation must be taken into account and will determine the final capacity that this motor can handle for that particular installation.
