R5 Swing Gate Motor


The smooth operator for swing gates. The Centurion R5 rotary swing gate motor is well-suited for higher volume sites such as entrances to housing estates and business parks. It can handle gates up to 3.5m wide per leaf weighing up to 250kg.
The R5 also offers battery backup and with the electronic controller and power supply mounted in the Master motor and with the option to wall-mount the operator, installation is greatly simplified. As with the sliding gate range of operators, these battery-driven swing gate units can also be adapted to operate off a solar power supply.
