By far the most popular kind of automation is the underground motor. Once correctly installed, there is no apparent sign of the mechanism other than the lid of the foundation casing box, and the pivitol arm which the gate is attached to. This does not detract from the overall aesthetics of an attractive gateway.
The underground motor can be fitted to new gateways or most pairs of existing gates and are designed to automate either metal or wooden gates. In the eventuality of a power cut the underground system has a key operated manual release mechanism which is conveniently situated on both the inside and outside of the gateway.
CAME's FROG system is the most functional and desirable solution for every type of swing gate. It is a highly efficient automation system thanks to the materials used and the gear-motor inside the casing. With a smooth and safe motion guaranteed even in the harshest conditions, but which, above all needs no periodic maintenance.
The Frog Plus
The FROG PLUS is a safe and reliable underground gate system, for oversized swing gates typically found in apartment blocks, commercial or industrial settings: army bases, prisons, hospitals etc. The steel foundation box with anti-rust treatment ensures the Frog Plus is watertight.
