Automatic single gate openers and dual gate openers are a common method of opening property gates simply and conveniently, with a wide variety of different kinds on the market to satisfy your specific needs. But how does a gate opener work?

Motor and Gear Box

The motors and gear boxes on all of our respective gate opener arms function similarly, with varying levels of capability. However, you can be sure that every opener will have the same quality and a lifetime guarantee of durability.

Ghost Controls® motors and gear boxes are all contained within a weather-resistant metal housing, extending the lifespan of your system for much longer than our competitors' standard plastic housing. The metal housing allows the inner working of every gate opener arm to function unobstructed by typical wear and tear, guaranteeing that your gate will keep on opening and closing and giving your peace of mind that repairs will be unlikely.

In addition to our industry-leading metal housing for motors and gear boxes, the way in which each function in tandem with each other separates Ghost Controls® from any other manufacturer of swing gate openers. The gear assembly is designed for reliable and quiet operation for no obnoxious noises whenever you're opening and closing your entry.

Inside your opener is an Over-Travel Position setting-switch, which will keep your arm from extending too far and prevent damage to it and your gate. This switch boasts an integrated waterproofing, adding yet another measure of safety to your system's mechanisms, and allowing it to work through any weather condition.
