What Is A Linear Gate Operator?

If you have wondered what a linear gate operator is, it is a type of gate opener made by Linear Gate Openers. Since these openers are durable and robust enough to handle residential and commercial gates, they are the optimal solution for any heavy swing or slide gate. Linear, or Osco, has provided quality openers trusted by installers for over five decades. Use these gate openers in homes, farms, or estates. One popular residential swing gate opener is the SWR. This gate opener is created for heavy gates up to 500 pounds.

What Makes The SWR Great For Residential Homes?

This swing gate opener is ideal for residential homes because of its zinc-plated steel chassis, which also contains a lockable steel access door. You can be assured that almost no one will be able to tamper with your gate when in use. Also, since this gate opener is pad-mounted, it is much harder to remove than other competitors. The LED diagnostic display helps ease your setup and provides simple troubleshooting.

Some other additional features include:

  • A continuous-tone entrapment alarm that consists of a reset button
  • ADA-compliant visual pre-start with a run alarm
  • An auto-close timer that can be programmed from 0-9 minutes
  • Entrapment sensing system that has a digital set point to adjust and provide additional safety accurately

On top of that, the SWR has a manufacturer warranty that lasts for five years. Stop worrying about whether your swing gate opener will break down and instead enjoy stress-free operation for many years.
