Are Sun-Power Vertical Lift Security Gates Safe?
Sun-Power Security Gates are safe! Safety has been engineered into every aspect of our gates. The gate is lifted and lowered with only 3 to 4 pounds of pressure, insuring safety for family and pets. This combined with optional electric eyes, Miller pressure switches and closing loop sensors make Sun Power Gates very safe.
What if the terrain is uneven?
Uneven terrain is never a problem. Your Sun-Power Security Gate does not require the extensive level area that conventional gates need to properly swing or roll out. The bottom of the gate can be sculpted to meet any terrain feature. (curbs, swales and sloped conditions)

Will my solar powered gate work if the sun is not out?
Solar energy is used for charging the gates power storage system. With average sunlight, the solar panels will generate enough power to cycle a 20 foot gate up and down approximately 200 times. In a test, using a nine foot gate and a fully charged power supply, the gate was raised and lowered 1800 times at it's normal speed of 6 to 8 seconds. So, Even if the sun were to be blocked by clouds for several days the gate would continue to function.
