BFT Joint


Electromechanical Operator For Swing Gates


This controller is suitable for residential use and has been designed for swing gates with particularly large gate posts. The drive arm, built with a special anti-shearing shape, allows the leaves to be moved when the controller is considerably out of place with respect to the fulcrum of the leaves. The non-reversible electro-mechanical gearmotor maintains the stop during closing and opening. The release lever, fitted in each controller and situated inside the door fitted with personalised key, allows the manual manoeuvre to be easily carried out

JOINT Electromechanical swing gates

JOINT: Provides an in dispersible automation system for swing gates installed on particularly large pillars. The drive arm with its special anti-shearing shape allows the leaves to be moved when the controller is positioned well away from their fulcrum.
