Kinetic Drive System

The Kinetic Drive System, designed as an innovative rack and pinion drive motor, provides a smooth, quiet, and reliable operation for automated gates. The Kinetic operator is a key component of Wallace International's Alpha and Delta Cantilever Gate Systems.

Standard features include a powerful DC motor, battery backup, and inherent entrapment sensor. When installed with an Alpha Gate, the entire system is UL 325 listed and ASTM F2200 compliant.
