The radial damper provides resistance to the gate while it is running down the hill but freewheels going uphill. It is recommended to fit a damper on steep rakes both to aid the motor and for safety reasons.

Sliding Gates on steeply raking driveways can be dangerous if they are released using the key in the event of a power failure. The forces of a heavy free moving gate down a slope mean will not be able to be stopped by hand if it starts moving. The gate damper minimises this safety issue.

The other reason to install a damper is to help the motor. If it is the right size it will be able to push the gate uphill no problems. But going downhill, the motor still wants to push the gate but the gate is instead pushing the motor! This causes problems with the control of operator and can lead to faulty operation if the forces are high. A gate damper reduces these problems and can bring the forces back inside the operating parameters of the motor.

  • SHIPPING WITHIN NZ

    Components - brackets, hinges, gate operators etc are generally off the shelf and we will dispatch the same day for orders before 2pm and next day for orders after. Deliveries go out by courier. We use NZC and our shipping charges are closely matched to what we get charged.

    Long or Bulky Items - such as gate track, rolls of chain link mesh or barrier arms go out by Streamline freight. Delivery can take a day or two depending on your location. We do our best to charge only the actual cost.

    Fence Panels and Gates  - are managed by inquiry only as the logistics of production and site delivery are best discussed with you or your trades people. We have our own hiab truck that can be used to drop your order right on site but it will need careful planning. Talk to us about these kind of requests.


    SHIPPING OVERSEAS

    We're happy to ship overseas and have some regular export customers. But most of our product is heavy and freight can be very expensive for small orders. So we encourage our international customers to put through their inquiry and let us quote the freight before they make a purchase decision.


    RETURNS

    We only put the credit card payment through after we've dispatched the goods so that if there are any stockouts or delays you can be contacted to make an informed decision.

    We're happy to accept returns for standard off-the-shelf product that is un-used and in its original packaging. But if you're ordering something that will be custom made for you then we'll not be able to accept a return in any circumstances. On standard items we reserve the right to charge a 15% restocking fee. Talk to us before returning goods so that we can issue you with a return authority number so our store people can match your return to your order.
