King Gates Modus Articulated Motors

From: $1,136.30

Italian made King Gates motors where articulation is required such as not enough space to insert a suitable gate post and direct fixing to a reinforced wall is required. Upgrade to solar with brackets, control box, panels and post. Also available with brackets to suit farm gates.


It is powered by a 24 volt transformer and can move 3-500 kg in weight and 4.2 meter in length. The Modus Articulated arm kit is the ideal choice to be fitted on new or existing gates due to the wide range of positional adjustment. The system is very easy to programme thanks to its automatic programme function. The Modus boasts many innovative features, including a slow-down facility on opening and closing, obstacle detection to ensure safety, secondary safety input for additional photo cells or safety edges, and has partial opening for pedestrian use. The benefit of a low voltage system is the capacity for high use and the opportunity for battery backup in case of power cuts.

Note: When using the raising hinge arm/ and /or solar power – the max specifications of the gate – weight, length, and speed – is reduced by 30%
