Automatic Gate Opener

Eddie CWoodbridge Environmental


Will an automatic or power gate opener pull beyond 90 deg. ?I need one to pull about 95 to 100 deg.

  • The position of the actuator that is connected to the gate as well as the length of the pull it produces will determine how far around the gate will open. You may need to put a arm that sticks out from the gate to achieve this amount of pull however. But yes this can be done, but its not a standard amount of opening that you require so there may need to be some additional modifications to both the gate for strength and to the location of where the actuator is attached and pulls from.

    That's great information! I didn't want to spend a bunch of money, and not get the result I am looking for. Thanks for the help
