Raatz Fence Co. is a GTO gate operator dealer, but we also sell or service a number of other operator brands. These include, but are not limited to, Door King, Stanley, Linear, FAAC, or Osco. Gate operators have been used for years in commercial applications, but are now growing in popularity with residential customers. The gate operator most commonly used in residential applications is the GTO Pro line of operators. They are available in several different models that are capable of moving slide gates up to 30’ in length and up to 1000 pounds in weight; swing gate operators will handle gates up to 20’ in length and up to 1000 pounds in weight. All of these operators have a great number of options for access controls. These range from transmitter and receiver access which would have a key chain sized transmitter similar to a garage door opener, to wireless or hardwired keypads for coded entry, wireless intercom systems with keypads, or telephone entry systems. They also have photo eyes or free exit capabilities available. The GTO Pro also has a Liftmaster kit that will allow your gate operator and garage door to operate concurrently.
The GTO brands are as simple to wire as plugging into new or existing 110V outside covered outlets. Door King models, that are most popular in commercial applications, also have models that will operate slide gates, swing gates and barrier gates. These also have a number of options that include keypad access, card reader access or telephone entry systems.
Gate operators offer ease of access for homeowners or businesses, coupled with security from unauthorized visitors. With all of the access options and price ranges available, there would be one that will fit your needs perfectly.
