A FAAC automated sliding gate frees the passage thanks to the leaf moving to the left or right, easily and safely. The leaf must always be supported by appropriate systems that prevent tilting or derailment.
Sliding gates can be made from different materials, shapes and sizes.
Sliding is usually guaranteed by a guide fixed to the ground and wheels fixed to the gate itself.
There are two selection criteria: the weight of the leaf and the type of use. Sliding gates for residential use are usually lighter (weighing up to 900 kg) and if they are opened only a few times a day, the 741 is perfect.
For more frequent use, weight up to 600 kg and the quietest movement, the ideal solution is the 746 E R.
Industrial gates need a solution like the 844 E R model since they are normally bulkier, heavier and therefore more difficult to move.
No problem. In an emergency, the 24V operators can use batteries, thereby allowing smooth operation, with no need to act on the emergency manual release, such as the C720 models for gates up to 400 kg or the C721 for gates up to 800 kg.
All models for residential use, for example, include the SAFEzone safety function that allows the gate to immediately re-open when it encounters an obstacle.
FAAC evolves without forgetting the needs of the environment by providing GREENtech technology that can minimise consumption, available in the C720 and C721 models, for example.
