Egidia SC Essential available in 3 versions

Manual gate: the gate is designed for manual operation and is fitted with a key-operated built-in lock from Locinox and a catcher installed on the reception post. The direction of the opening can be reversed on-site at the time of installation.

Motorisable gate: our gate is designed for the installation of an external motor later onwards. A dental rack (module 4) is mounted on the beam and inspection holes are provided for the passage of wiring afterward. Also, the dental rack is reinforced with a steel core, covered with a nylon layer, to assure a smooth and quick move.

Fully Automatic motorized gate: due to our exclusive partnership with FAAC, we offer you a gate that is factory-fitted with an external motor and all necessary safety items and operation items. The gate is delivered fully prewired, and ready to operate. We offer one type of motorization.

Gate construction

  • Underbeam: 75 x 65 mm
  • Frame profiles: 60x40
  • Frame infill: Nylofor 2DS Panels with a center profile 60x40 mm, to assure high rigidity.
  • Stop bumper at the rear of the wing for gate width ⩾ 4.50 meters
  • 2 posts 80x80x3: one for the guidance of the wing and one for the reception with the catcher on top of the post
  • 2 rollersets with polyamide guiding rollers screwed on the post
  • Integrated tension system

Automatic version specifications

Compare to the motorizable version, where only the dental rack is supplied, the automatic version offers a plug & play, fully secured sliding gate, compliant with the European regulation 13241:2003 & A2:2016. You just need to screw your posts to the concrete, plug the motor, and you're ready to test it.

Your gate will be delivered with:

  • FAAC motor 746
  • 2 wireless photocells with batteries
  • ASO resistive safety edges: 2 on the guiding post and one on the front of the wing.
  • A warning light XLED 24/320 V
  • A remote controller, 2-channels, 868 MHz SLH

Optional Equipment

With your order you can add:

  • Additional remote controllers
  • Wireless Keypad
  • Badge reader + tags
  • GSM Module
  • Lock & catcher for the motorizable version, if you are not ready to motorize immediately.

Easy installation

All our Egidia SC essential cantilever sliding gates are fully pre-wired and ready to be quickly installed by professionals. The dental rack is installed on the lower beam. The motor, for the automatic version, is mounted on a separate plate screwed to the guiding post. In the event of a power failure, the motor can be disengaged to enable manual opening.

No need to install a rail, as this gate is cantilevered.

The gate will be delivered with complete and easy documentation, including foundation drawings.
