Reasons To Get Electric Gates

Reasons To Get Electric Gates


  • Security

An electric gate is a barrier between your home and uninvited guests, opportunistic burglars, car thieves, vandals and also criminals. Because electric gates are powered by motors, it is difficult for intruders to force them open. You can also choose to increase your home security by including video surveillance, intercoms, alarms and the like.

  • Privacy

If the thought of prying eyes and sticky-beak neighbours gets up your back, the solid gates would suit perfectly. There are usually heavier than other gates, so to save you physical injury, electric gates offer the perfect solution.

  • Comfort

Enjoy opening your gates from the comfort of your car or home with the push of a button. There’s no need to get wet in the rain or cold in winter.

  • Convenience

How often have you gone out and either forgotten to close your gates or worse, couldn’t be bothered to close them because it’s too much effort? You won’t have this problem with electric gates; you can even set them to close automatically.

  • Children

Just as you don’t want intruders to enter your property, you don’t want your children or pets running out into the street either. Electric gates can be set to close automatically and you can be rest assured that children and pets will be kept safe within the confines of your premises.

  • Strays

Keep other people’s animals and strays out with electric gates. You spend too much time caring for your garden for some animal to dig it up and damage your plants.

  • Value

Add value to your home with an attractively designed set of electric gates. People often think of automated gates as a luxury item and therefore increase the value of your property.

  • Affordable

Electric gates are a lot more affordable than they used to be thanks to advances in technology. So now it’s not only the rich and famous that are able to afford automatic gates, you can too.



Furthermore, with all these benefits, it’s not surprising that more and more people are installing electric gates.

So don’t put off securing your home, making your life easier and also adding value to your property.

Centsys D5-Evo Sliding Gate Motor



They say you can’t improve upon perfection. Well, they obviously haven’t seen the D5-Evo Sliding Gate Motor.

One of the most durable and reliable motors ever made, the legendary D5 is renowned the world over. Many years later, old ‘tried and tested’ gets perfected. We borrowed what we learned from the D10 and applied it to the D5-Evo.

Incorporating a 12V version of the D10 controller, the D5-Evo also offers a wide range of useful features which includes ChronoGuard timer functionality (a world first).

Faster, smarter and easier to set up, old faithful even got a facelift and now looks more like his D10 Cousin.

Hard as nails and loyal to the end, you can sleep easy, knowing that our D5-Evo Sliding Gate Motor is on guard.

You can even enjoy the amazing features and functionality of our flagship motor if you don’t have mains power at your gate – thanks to the D5-Evo Low-Voltage. Simply connect a transformer to this cost-effective model’s included rectifier, and enjoy the freedom of fully DIY gate automation! No expensive high-voltage cable runs, no costly isolators, no sweat!

Main Features:

  • Battery Backup

We pioneered power failure protection in gate motors. So in line with all our other motors, the D5-Evo carries on guarding your entrance even when the lights go out.

  • All-important speed

The original D5 made a mark for itself being a quick motor, opening the gate swiftly when you arrive at your entrance. The D5-Evo is now that little bit faster, opening your average four metre gate in less than twelve seconds, adding even more security and convenience.

  • Open it the way you like it…

Rapid opening but a more tempered closing just in case a loved one is in the way, that’s the sort of sophistication in motor control you can expect from the D5-Evo. Added to this, you can vary the acceleration and deceleration of your gate and make it move so smoothly it will do so for many years to come.

  • Pushes like a mule

Such a compact package but such a potent push force, it will reliably move almost any gate weighing up to 500kg and do it for a very long time.

  • Wide awake all the time!

Incorporating the tried and tested DOSS position control system of its predecessors, the D3 and D5, the D5-Evo moves open and closed accurately, stopping in just the right spot each and every time. It’s also wide awake to any obstruction that might cross its path, ensuring safe and sensitive anti-crushing protection.

  • It will turn heads

The D5-Evo takes on a new and more attractive look compared to the original D5. It’s nice to know that even your trusty gate guard will turn heads.

  • Plug and play

The LCD-based controller makes child’s play of setting up the gate. It is literally plug and play – the D5-Evo’s controller does all the thinking for you.

  • It’s got it all

What a pleasure to click through an almost endless list of really useful features – from multiple Modes of Operation, gate operating parameters, Pillar Light Control with Pre-flash, Alarm functions, Positive Close Mode and Real Time Clock and Calendar to enable time-based features – to helpful diagnostic feedback. It just stops short of making the coffee!
