Our representative will help you make an ideal choice for your exact needs, based on this information.
Linear products are available in a full range of electrical specifications. Depending on your exact installation requirements, you can select an operator for 115V, 208V, 230V or 460V service, in either 1 phase or 3 phase configurations. For maximum efficiency and power, choose your system to match the highest power capacity available at your site.
In the case of a power outage at your site, Linear gate operator systems offer a number of ways to cope with a loss of power. All models feature manual release capabilities. In addition, some models include battery backup systems and can be configured to open automatically in case of a power failure or remain closed. In some jurisdictions, battery backup capability may be required for some uses.
Each residential or commercial gate has unique requirements for opening and closing. Linear gate operators can be opened and closed using a wide range of access control accessories. From key switches, keypads and manual operator controls to controls that use telephone, intercom, radio and more, there’s a control system available to suit every need. We can help you choose the right access control accessories.
In much of the US, temperatures during the winter months can drop well below freezing. Extremely cold weather can put unusual stresses on gate operators. Most Linear swing, slide and barrier gate operating systems offer accessory heaters or special cold weather packages to keep your gates opening and closing smoothly and quickly, no matter what conditions Mother Nature brings.
Swing gates are popular for both commercial and residential applications. Linear, the leading manufacturer of gate opening and closing systems, offers a complete range of swing gate opener models. Depending on your requirements and gate design, you’ll find a Linear model that is ideally suited for your needs. We will be glad to assist you in choosing a gate operator and accessories to match your gate design and budget.
Sliding gates are among the most popular gate designs, and require only modest amounts of driveway entrance space. Linear sliding gate operators can handle all lengths and weights of sliding gates, depending on the model selected. Smooth operation, low cycle times, and trouble-free endurance are key features that make Linear systems ideal for any sliding gate installation and for replacement purposes.
Barrier gates are widely used for vehicle access control in parking areas, ramps, and anywhere security requires access only by authorized cars and trucks. Linear offers a complete range of models and control systems. Whatever your needs may be, you’ll find the solution you’re looking for at our direct-ship discount fencing company.
When you need a replacement opener for an existing gate or want to convert a manually operated swing or sliding gate to automatic operation, Linear has a gate opening and closing system to suit any need. From pad-mounted models to post-mounted units, you’ll find the right system for your existing gates with the expert help from us.
Linear gate operators provide a wide range of methods for automatically closing gates once a vehicle has passed through. From adjustable time delay systems and photo-electric controls to buried loop vehicle detection systems, Linear’s gate closing technology works with a variety of safety features to close your gates safely and securely. Auto-reversing features are among the safety features of Linear gate operation systems. Our representatives will be glad to assist you in choosing the right gate closing options for your installation.
In many cases, security is needed primarily for vehicles entering a facility, but is not required for vehicles that are leaving. Vehicle detectors can easily identify an approaching vehicle and automatically open the gate to allow exiting vehicles to proceed without delay. Other options include simple post-mounted push button operators at exits, allowing drivers to operate the gate with a touch.
