The ‘FROG’ automation system can be fitted to new gateways or most pairs of existing gates that you may have. In the eventuality of a power cut the FROG system has a key operated manual release mechanism which is conveniently situated on both the inside and outside of the gateway.
The ‘FROG’ system is designed to automate either metal or wooden gates and in every case the pivot arm becomes the bottom hinge for the gate.
Once correctly installed, there is no apparent sign of the mechanism other than the lid of the foundation casing box, and it does not detract from the overall aesthetics of an attractive gateway.
The irreversible geared motor firmly locks the gates, unlike hydraulic machines which generally allow their pistons to “relax” and therefore must have an electric locking system which, with the passage of time, invariably becomes an extra thing to malfunction.
