Domestic sliding gate operator


The D3 sliding gate operator is designed to operate gates weighing up to 300kg. It is a robust and cost-effective solution to the automation of domestic sliding gates.

In addition, it comes standard with battery-back up ensuring that you’ll never be left outside in the event of a power failure.

The D3 sliding gate motor is a cost-effective operator for domestic installations, designed to operate gates weighing up to 300kg.
