FROG – Underground Gate Operator
Suitable for new gateways and most existing gates, the FROG automation system is a very popular option for the discerning customer. As its name implies, this superb, most-copied gate system is designed to operate in damp, below-ground level conditions.
FROG systems are not only long-lasting and reliable but also installed without the need for any type of armature attachment on the inside of the gates. When you choose our services, we will visit your property to ensure that the FROG system is the best possible solution for your needs.
The underground gate motors are compatible with all the standard accessories, including remote controls buttons, and keypads. In the eventuality of a power cut, the FROG system has a key-operated manual release mechanism, conveniently situated on both the inside and outside of the gateway.
Ideal for automating either metallic or wooden gates, the FROG system is designed so that the pivot arm becomes the bottom hinge for the gate. Once correctly installed, there will be no apparent sign of the mechanism other than the lid of the foundation casing box, ensuring it does not affect the overall aesthetic of your gateway.
Furthermore, the irreversible geared motor firmly locks the gates. This avoids the need for an electric locking system that might malfunction over time, making the FROG system a superior solution to hydraulic machines, which generally allow their pistons to “relax”. The FROG underground gate machine is, without doubt, the finest of its kind available today.
FERNI - Articulated Arm Gate Operator
Designed to automate gates which are hung from large brick or stone pillars, the FERNI articulated arm gate operator offers fast openings for a wide range of applications. As the quickest and most versatile external electro-mechanical operator available, the most common application for this system is a gateway that opens directly onto a main road.
The simplicity of operating a winding arm machine ensures the fastest possible opening every time. The FERNI is compatible with all the standard accessories, from remote controls to push buttons and keypads.
ATI – Worm Drive Gate Operator
With its irreversibly geared worm drive mechanism, the ATI motor is extremely strong, making it suitable for heavyweight gates. A common application for the ATI series would be to operate a traditional five-bar wooden gate or a pair of closed-in boarded gates that are exposed to the wind.
Compatible with remote controls, push buttons, and all other standard accessories, all ATI models come with a key-operated manual release mechanism. The ATI gate operator is a cost-effective and efficient way of automating your gates.
KRONO – Worm Drive Gate Operator
Commonly used in small-hinge geometry solutions, the KRONO kit is a complete system for a pair of wing gates (up to 2.5m each leaf) and is most commonly used in small hinge geometry situations. As the motors are worm-driven, they are very strong and provide very smooth operation. Complete with a comprehensive installation guide, the KRONO kit is a very cost-effective automation solution.
FAST – Articulated Arm Gate Operator
Designed to automate small gates hung from any type of pillar or post, the FAST articulated arm gate operator is the easiest and quickest to install within our entire CAME range. Complete with an in-built control panel, FAST motors are incredibly easy to install and will operate most lightweight gates up to 2.3m per leaf.
With a simple winding arm mechanism, quick and smooth opening is always assured. Furthermore, this system may be operated with remote controls, push buttons, and other standard CAME accessories, and comes with a lever-operated manual release mechanism in case of power cuts.
BX – Sliding Gate Systems
Whether you have limited space, or you require extra security, CAME provides electric sliding gate operators for all sizes of gateway. From the BX and BXE residential systems to the BK and BY 3500 commercial solutions, our extensive range of gates is ideal for either metal or wooden gates.
Using a robust and reliable rack and pinion method of operation, this straightforward system utilises a sophisticated electronic control panel. This allows you to programme a variety of features, including timed auto-closure, partial opening for pedestrian-only access, and wired low-voltage signalling from the entire range of CAME accessories.
Electric sliding gate installations require more civil engineering at the initial stage, but once the correct ground track and/or roller frames are installed, it follows the same steps as other electric gate installations, from gate fabrication and mounting to the final stage of electrical fixing and commissioning.
Available to survey your gateway at your convenience, our team will recommend which sliding gate motor is right for your property, tailoring our services to your individual requirements.
VER - Garage Door Operator
Comprising a comprehensive package of CAME equipment designed to automate new and existing tracked doors, the VER garage door operator is suitable for horizontal doors ranging from 1.8m (6’) to 6m (18’) wide. The principle of the VER is a rigid C-shaped steel shaft containing a strong carrying chain, which is connected by a bent “banana” arm to the centre point at the top of the door. This provides a powerful yet balanced operating mechanism.
This quiet 24-vote motor comes with an electronic control panel and limit switches. The limit switches not only cut off the motor at the top and bottom, but also decelerate the door when it reaches its final few inches of closure. This power-sensitive system includes an intelligent method of sensing any obstructions in the path of the closing door, with extra infrared safety beams if required.
With an integral light on a timer, there is a small courtesy light within the garage as the door is operated. There is also a manual release mechanism, enabling the door to be operated manually in the event of a power cut.
For outward-opening swing-type garage doors, we also offer a VER-Y system for an additional cost. With an efficient metal rod system attached to the higher level of both swing doors, this is an effective solution to open swing doors to 90 degrees.
GARD - Roadway Barrier Systems
With a two-way speaker system, an audible intercom will enable you to speak to the visitor at your gateway from the comfort and security of your home. Using an indoor wall phone, you will be able to check who is visiting and decide whether or not to let them in.
As an added extra, a “leave-open” switch can be fitted to the wall phone, which will allow you to keep your gates temporarily open from inside your home. This is an especially useful feature for dinner parties and other functions when several guests and cars would need access.
Often used in combination with other methods of switching, card reader access control systems are a very efficient method of accommodating and monitoring large numbers of users. As a user passes through an electric gateway, their card will be instantly read by the stainless steel touchplate, which is slot-free and weatherproof.
Helping you to maintain an increased level of security, CAME offer a coin-type token reader with reusable, grooved tokens. Suitable for electric gate systems, this allows entry to occasional visitors on an intermittent basis.
Tokens may be given out or sent in advance to users to deposit in the slot on arrival. Coin readers may also be used in combination with other forms of gateway switching, such as remote controls.
All control panels are housed in a tough, durable ABS plastic housing, which is weather-rated to the international standard of IP54. We further recommend mounting this inside an external housing to provide secondary protection against even the harshest conditions.
Avoiding the risk of losing keys or cards, digital keypads grant access to authorised visitors via a secure code. Family, friends, and other visitors will be able to enter through the electric gateway, provided they have the correct code.
Situated at the gateway itself, these metallic keypads are tamperproof. With secondary data information circuit boards installed away from the keypad itself, they cannot be forced open or short-circuited to gain unauthorised access.
Installing an electric latch is the best way to prevent damage to a long, flexible gate or to remove the stress and strains caused by pounding winds on closed boarded or similar types of “closed-in” gates. Electric locks also have the mechanical capacity to be released automatically by the control panel or a key in the event of a power cut.
When a metallic vehicle passes over an induction loop, the entrance will open. This system uses a roughly rectangular-shaped wire loop, laid in a coil that creates a miniature magnetic induction field above it. When activated, a pulse switch is sent to the gate control. Induction loops may also be overridden by a time-switch to restrict access to certain hours, with remote controls available for authorised users to use outside of those hours.
Traditionally used for opening secure entrances, a key switch system provides access to authorised key holders. Using an orthodox type of cylinder key, the key switch has a metallic finish for a stylish but strong appearance. Extra keys can be cut locally at a qualified locksmith. Additional forms of switching can be combined with this system at the gateway.
Magnetic Key Reader
Working similarly to a conventional key switch, a magnetic key system uses an individual code which will only activate the gates in the correct key reader. Especially common in commercial switching situations, this provides a secure yet easy entrance method.
A weatherproof push button is the simplest and most effective form of switching at the gateway. Generally, we will install two of these – one on the outside for entry and one on the inside for exit. These may be positioned to suit your individual installation but are usually fitted on the right-hand side of the entrance/exit side, so they are reachable from the vehicle driver’s window.
In case of power cuts, the time switch has a 72-hour battery back-up. When working effectively, this solution always ensures that passers-by are always presented with a closed gate, but visitors and deliveries can gain authorised access.
Radio Remote Controls
Set at the approved UK frequency of 433Mhz, our radio remote controls eliminate the need to point them at the gates, as with infrared or ultrasonic controls. With a range of no less than 50m with a tuned antenna, these easy-to-use battery-operated controls will usually last for about a year in residential use.
Creating a safety zone in front of your gateway, this system utilises active infrared safety beams from a DOC transmitter with a range of up to 18 metres in outdoor conditions. This represents an excellent form of positive beam protection around the gateway and on wing-type gates.
They are usually installed in two sets – one just in front of the gate line and one just inside the arc-line of travel described by the swinging wing of each gate. This prohibits the gates from closing until all vehicles and other obstructions are clear of the safety area. Furthermore, if a beam is broken after automatic closing has begun, it will re-open and hold until the obstruction is clear.
The standard visual intercom is a one-to-one set of equipment, connecting an outside speech and camera unit station to your indoor wall-mounted telephone and monitor. Although this system is more expensive and requires extra lighting at the gateway, this system grants you the ability to see your visitor’s face before granting entry.
