Understanding gate motor prices

Although security and gate motor prices have gone up, security remains right near the top of just about every South African's list of concerns - especially when you take into account rising violent crime levels. An automated gate installed using a quality gate motor can significantly reduce your risk of being hijacked or compromised when leaving or entering your property. This is largely down to the fact that you needn't leave your vehicle in order to open your gate.

This piece will centre on gate motor prices in the South African market and what it may cost you for a reliable installation.

Gate motor prices - from small to large

In order to determine how much you can expect to pay for a gate motor, you need to decide on whether you want to install a single sliding or swinging gate or a set of swinging gates. The other aspect that determines the cost of your motor will be the weight of the gate or gates you're looking to install. Lighter gates will require smaller motors, which obviously do not cost as much as your more powerful units.

A smaller motor that is designed to deal with much smaller gates of around 250 - 400 kilograms will set you back between R2500 - R3500 depending on the quality of the unit. A mid-sized motor designed to deal with gates weighing at around 400 - 600 kilograms will more than likely cost you around R4500 - R6000. Finally, if you've chosen to install a sliding gate weighing more than 1000 kilograms you'll need a serious motor which will set you back around R7500 - R8500.

All gate motor prices listed above are averages derived from a number of top gate motor suppliers found throughout South Africa - all prices shown exclude installation costs and can vary.
