Steel Automatic Gates and automatic gate openers.
Residential, Body Corporate, Car Parks and Industrial.
Steel gates are often used as security gates and can be sliding gates or swing gates. Traditionally sliding automatic gates have been used for heavy duty or commercial auto gates, with swing auto gates being used in lighter domestic automatic gate driveways. Like most rules, there are exeptions. Sliding automatic gates can be used where room is tight, and swing gates would interfere with parking space for the second vehicle. Melbourne Automatic Gates have used underground automatic gate motors for heavy wrought iron or solid steel gates to 500kg, and industrial rams for commercial gates to 800kg. Most residential driveway gates can have automatic gate motors which can be powered with safe low voltage cable running from the control box. This 24 volt automatic gate system is a perfect complement to access control systems such as intercom access or keypads, or push button remote transmitters which are kept in the car. Our commercial gate systems use stronger 240 volt motors. Steel gates are galvanised, then powder coated or epoxy painted so that they will last and look good season after season. Steel gates can be fitted to masonry pillars, or steel posts set deep into the ground with concrete.
We fabricate Cantilevered steel sliding gates where the situation demands no wheel track.

BFT Automatic gate openers from Italy, home of the automatic gate.
We stock and supply BFT automatic gate openers. As a world leading brand, BFT have been making automatic openers for 25 years and supply to over 100 countries. BFT motors are sophisticated and robust, with limit switches on all domestic motors so that stops are rarely required. These 24 volt motors can be fitted in almost any situation. Our experience in supplying and installing automatic gate openers tells us that if there's one feature customers demand from their automatic gates, it is reliability. BFT have been manufacturing gate automation systems since the 1970s and have the manufacturing culture to produce safe and reliable automatic gate motors. These electric gate systems can be fitted with battery back up in case of power failure. The control box continually recharges the 12 volt batteries so that they will be fresh if the need arises. We can fit a push button on the control box in case the remote is mislaid and access is urgent. There is nothing more infuriating than having to go to pick up the kids and you can't get out of the driveway because your automatic gates won't open. The gates can be manually opened with a key. Melbourne Automatic gates guarantees your automatic gate and automatic gate motor for 2 years, and we can service your automatic gates in the years ahead, so that you will always have automatic gates that work as they should. We have been building gates and fences around Melbourne for 25 years.
