A new development of 3 outstanding homes in Warlingham, a village in one of the most desirable residential locations in the Surrey Downs was built. The exclusive development required a gated environment. The FAAC 400 product was selected, a heavy duty top of the range operator. The gates would be used by the various residents so needed to have a high duty cycle. Sam Holter of GateDoctors stated that “Installation is simple with the correct geometry and the drive unit caters to a wide variety of gate sizes and set ups. It was a newly completed development. So this system was designed and built from the ground up.” The 400 SB operators were selected along with Safecoders, these encoders guarantee complete movement control and reverse on obstacle detection. Over the lifetime of the operators, they’ll avoid energy wastage due to avoiding having the operators push against mechanical stops. If there is a power failure, the encoder always keeps in memory the leaf position.
The 400 range is for the most part pretty bomb proof. Simple manual release procedures and the finish and aesthetic of the unit makes it popular with customers.- Sam Holter.
We recommended them for their hydraulic robustness, the diverse users on the site and ease of installation.
