Cable Gates

About Bollinger Automation Cable Gates

Cable gates are commonly used in parking complexes and areas. These gates use a thick, stainless steel wire secured to two posts either side of an entrance. When prompted, a latch inside one post releases slack which drops the cable to the ground and allows vehicles to drive over.

Advantages of cable gates

Using an automatic cable gate offers several advantages for properties that require a flexible and efficient gate system. Here are three key reasons why opting for an automatic cable gate can be beneficial:

  • 1Versatility and Flexibility: Automatic cable gates are known for their versatility and flexibility in terms of installation and operation. These gates use a system of cables and pulleys to open and close, allowing for smooth and precise movement. The cable mechanism enables the gate to be installed on uneven terrain or areas with limited space, making it an ideal choice for properties with challenging landscape or narrow driveways. Additionally, automatic cable gates can be customized to fit various gate sizes and configurations, providing a flexible solution that can adapt to the specific needs of the property.

  • 2Easy Maintenance and Longevity: Automatic cable gates are designed to be low-maintenance and long-lasting. The cables used in these gates are made from durable materials that are resistant to corrosion and wear. This ensures that the gate operates smoothly and reliably over an extended period of time. Moreover, the cable system requires minimal maintenance compared to other gate types, reducing the need for frequent repairs or adjustments. With proper care and regular inspections, an automatic cable gate can provide years of trouble-free operation.

  • 3Enhanced Safety and Security: An automatic cable gate offers enhanced safety and security features for your property. These gates can be equipped with various safety devices, such as photocells or safety edges, to detect obstructions and prevent accidents. The cable mechanism also provides a strong and secure barrier, deterring unauthorized access and protecting the property from intruders. Additionally, automatic cable gates can be integrated with access control systems, intercoms, or video surveillance, allowing for efficient management of entry and exit points, further enhancing the overall security of the premises.

In summary, the benefits of using an automatic cable gate include versatility and flexibility, easy maintenance and longevity, as well as enhanced safety and security. These gates offer a reliable and efficient solution for properties with challenging terrain or limited space, while providing peace of mind in terms of durability and protection. Whether for residential or commercial use, an automatic cable gate can be customized to meet the specific requirements of the property, offering a seamless blend of functionality and aesthetics.
