Roller motors for gate automation are suitable for lightweight gates only. The main advantage of this system is its wide opening angle. Roller type gate motors can’t be used on places with a sloppy floor, lawn, or other surfaces with a rustic finish. One problem with this type of gate automation is that the rubber rollers may leave black sliding marks on the floor in the long run. If the floor is smooth without any friction, then the rollers may slip during the rainy season. If the floor is rough or rustic the rubber rollers may be worn-out within a short span of time.
Hence, Controls and Schematics strongly advise buying spare rubber rollers along with the roller type remote gate system for future use.
Most of the roller type gate automation system dealers in Trivandrum, Kerala is stopping this type of system due to frequent complaints.
