Typhoon 800 AC Sliding Gate Automation System with Soft Start & Soft Stop Feature

Strong & Durable


With its Soft Start/Soft Stop feature the APC Typhoon 800 brings the gate up to operating speed and down to a stop gently significantly increasing the motors operating life whilst decreasing the jolting movement incurred when the feature is not available.This feature can also simply be turned off if not required.

The 450W Internal motor allows for an 800kg capacity making it the ideal candidate for the majority of gate installations.

Ready to go the on board receiver will accept the entire range of current APC High Security wireless control systems and accessories such as wireless keypads, push buttons and an extensive range of  remotes. Perfect for a simpler of no wiring needed installation.


All In One Motor Design



Ultra compact, sleek design and with some clever re-arrangement the APC Typhoon 800 is one of the smallest physical footprint systems on the market with zero compromise in the motor or gearbox size. The bottom cast alloy section is powder coated in a ultra durable hammer tone grey finish whilst the top cover sports a lighter gloss grey making it perfectly neutral and suited for any garden or driveway

With separate open and close inputs as well as an shared open/close input the APC Typhoon 800 will support just about any wired accessory and  can be connected for a specific direction or to operate both. Perfect for Keypads, Push buttons, Induction Loops or Smart Devices such as Wi-Fi switches or GSM controllers.

Pre wired with the AC power cable and fitted with an on board low voltage transformer means the accessories connections are low voltage (18V DC) and safe to connect.


Manual Override System


Rest easy knowing that even if the power is out the gate can still be operated by using the secure key override, once overridden the gate can be easily opened and closed by hand, once re-engaged the gate is locked in and 100% secure.


Metal Pinion & Cast Casing


Only the best parts are used to ensure an incredibly strong build quality from the robust cast alloy casing all the way to the one piece solid steel pinion gear no corners have been cut.

APC-PE2000 Photoelectric Safety Sensor Set


The Safety sensor set is used to prevent the closing cycle occurring during the case of the sensor path being interrupted by vehicles, trailers or any other obstacles.

If the gate begins to close and the sensor path is interrupted then the gate will stop and return to the open position.

Both sensors (transmitter and receiver) are wired back to the control box of the gate system using the supplied cable roll, alternatively a reflective sensor upgrade is available which will only require wiring from the sensor mounted at the control box.
  • Up to 15 Metres Infared beam operating distance

  • Only powers on when the command is given to close the gates

  • Alignment led to assist in the installation process

  • Weather sealed with the supplied cover seals

  • Easy screw down wiring termination



Clydsdale 500 Telescopic Gate System

APC Clydsdale 500 Telescopic Gate System

Consisting of Galvanized steel pulley carriers with sealed bearings this kit allows the final tensioning of the system to be performed from either (or both) ends of the gate rather than between the gates like conventional kits.

The Anchor bracket can be assembled in a raised setup (for bolt-on wheels) and a lowered setup (for recess mount wheels) to eliminate awkward and incorrect cable directions, this will improve the short term and long reliability of the cable and the system and help prevent cable fray.

The Trailing bracket is adjustable in depth to cater for varying distances between the two installed gates and has elongated fixing holes to allow for fine adjustment during the installation process prior to final fixing.


What is a Telescopic Gate:

A telescopic gate is a gate designed in two halves with a leading and a trailing gate. The leading gate will be the gate closest to the inside of the property whereas the trailing gate is the gate that is closest to the street. 

Typically a sliding gate would require the width of the driveway + the tail of the gate (350mm) as the minimum clear area required however the telescopic gate system  only requires half the driveway width + the tail of gate (350mm). This makes a telescopic gate superior in clearance space required and beneficial for townhouses, blocks of units and any other installation with limited space.

Using the information above if the driveway width is 4000mm then each gate would be manufactured to 2350mm thus making 2350mm the required clearance space. Ideally an additional 150mm would be ideal for a ground stop installation making the preferred clearance space 2500mm

Key Features of Telescopic Gate:

  • Face Mounted System (when using flat mount or recess mount wheels) but can be under mounted below gate (using flat-mount wheels)
  • Sealed bearings not bushings
  • Three cable tensioning points to allow an easier installation (other designs only have one tension point between the gates)
  • Adjustable brackets provided for the use of recess mount or flat mounted wheels
  • Low profile system (does not protrude above bottom section of the gate using 80x40 or greater)
  • All hard parts are galvanized.
  • All assembly screws are galvanized
  • Telescopic cable is stainless steel and is provided in a 10m length

Q: Can the telescopic system be under mounted?
A: Yes, Due to the design of the pulley carriers 4 Lug rear side fixing the carrier can be installed to the bottom of the gate without any need to remove the gate during the installation process.

Q:What size tubing will the system fit to?
A: The carrier system can be installed onto a large variety of different size tubing's such as to 40x40, 80x40, 50x50, 75x50 and 100x50.

Q: What is the maximum size PER gate?
A: The maximum size of each gate can be up to 4600mm including the 350mm overlap.

Q: What should each gate width be?
A: Divide the width of your driveway in half and add 350mm to the measurement. This is the final width of each gate.

Q: Will the system be visible from the street?
A:Initially when face installed the cable will be visible, it is highly recommended to have one of the following methods applied to cover the cable for safety and aesthetics.
- Enclosure on the gate face during fabrication process ready to fit after complete installation.
- Flashing folded to size ready to install after complete installation.

Q: Will i receive instructions?
A: Yes you will receive a comprehensive clear english manual which will give clear instructions about the design of the gate all the way through to installation and parts placement.
