 Inground Motor (24V or 230V) 

Electro mechanical Inground motors are designed for swing gates up to 3.5m wide or 500kg –  making them suitable for most openings. As the names suggests, these motors are positioned in the ground, and sit flush directly beneath the gates hinges. Inground motors are discreet, clean and have a minimal impact on the aesthetic of the gate. 

Inground motors can be manually overridden in an emergency using a key provided after installation.

Hydraulic Rams 

Hydraulic rams are devices which are surface mounted to the rear of the gate, typically 1/2-1/3 way up the gate from the ground.  Historically, hydraulic rams where preferred for moving some of the heaviest gates leaves, however with technological advancements in recent years,  some Electro-Mechanical Rams are capable of operating heavy gates just as well as hydraulic rams. 

To manually override the ram, simply place the key in the top of the ram and turn as instructed – releasing the mechanism.

Electro-Mechanical Rams 

Electro Mechanical Rams are much like the Hydraulic rams – surface mounted to the rear of the gate leaf – typically 1/2-1/3 of the way up the gate from the ground. Rams are typically used on larger swing gates, or where environmental factors mean the inground motor isn’t appropriate.   

Using a key, these rams can be manually overridden. The key hole is located at the top of the ram as shown in the image.

Sliding Gate Motor 

Suitable for both ground track & cantilever sliding gates, these motors work via ‘Rack & Pinion’ system. The motor, which holds the pinion, is secured to the ground and located within the compound. The rack is located at the bottom of the sliding gate. 

In the event of maintenance or failure, the user can override the motor by using a key and pulling out the lever located at the bottom of the motor. 

Access Control

Vandal resistant intercom panel

This intercom is a hardy and versatile unit, making it ideal for public, repeated use in a busy entrance –  either for pedestrians and drivers alike.

This unit is designed with Paxton Net2 software in mind, a PC based system that can seamlessly control access control over the entire site. As a result, this intercom will need Cat5e cabling.

The unit includes a fob reader, call button with video camera and a keypad. Intercom can either surface mounted or flush.

Modular intercom panel

The modular intercom has several benefits. Firstly, the frame allows for different modules to be swapped in and out, so the intercom only get the modules that it needs. 

Secondly, the cost is greatly reduced. This is partly because isn’t a PC based access control, but instead can run on a two wires. One for power, the other for the audio/video transmission. If upgrading an existing intercom, legacy wires maybe suitable to be reused – reducing costs further.

ANPR Camera 

Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras can be installed at both the entrance & exit to a gate – allowing authorised vehicles to pass freely through, whilst making unknown/unauthorised vehicles wait at the gate to be granted access through. 

Electric Locks

Click to enlarge 

Hold-open Maglocks 

Hold-open maglocks are designed to secure a gate leaf in the open position. the maglock is located on a separate post, and the matching magnet is located on the end of the gate leaf. The Hold-open maglocks will switch off (releasing the gate leaf) once the motors get a signal to close the gate again.

This is ideal method of securing large gate leaves whilst taking the stain off the Rams or Inground Motors.

Rising Arm Barrier – Maglocks 

Rising arm barriers can be reinforced with a maglock – preventing the rising arm being forced up. Custom receiver posts are built to help the magnet locate the maglock every single time.

Electro-magnetic locks

Electro-magnetic locks is a very popular lock solution. Paired with an armature plate, the maglock will secure the gate in the shut position with ample force. Depending on the size of the gate and the clients’ security needs, additional maglocks can be added to a gate to increase hold strength.

Solenoid Shoot bolt 

The solenoid shoot bolt is an automated version of the dropbolts. when activated the solenoid shifts the bolt from the open to close position. This device is ideal for alleviating unnecessary strain on the motors held in either the open or closed position. 

Ground Works
