Their client had an extremely wide driveway and wanted to add security, whilst being practical for guests entering and exiting with cars. The main inspiration behind the beautiful design was the client’s house location on Willow Road. Willow leaves were laser-cut into the profiles of the gates. The talented team at Capitan Gate Co completed all fabrication, design, and installation.
When Capitan initially discussed the project with their client, the main objective was to make access to the driveway functional for their large family. As mentioned, the driveway was exceptionally wide, often accommodating up to six parked cars simultaneously. So, they wanted a solution that allowed for one side of the drive to open depending on which car was arriving/exiting. Capitan perfectly met the requirement, by installing dual-sided gates.
Capitan Gate Co powered the gates with two Benincà BULL624 ESA sliding gate motors. These are ideal for intensive use with their 24 Vdc geared motors. The BULL624 ESA has an integrated control unit, along with an encoder device with ensures maximum safety and precision whilst the gate is in motion. To add to the overall gate safety, Capitan also installed two BEA lasers on both the front and rear of the gates. This was to add a precise, non-contact safety solution that will detect all types of obstacles within the detection field.
Not only does Capitan’s installation look stunning with the beautiful laser-cut profile, but it meets the client’s brief perfectly for practicality, with the dual entrance/exit. Therefore, we are thrilled to present this unique installation with our ‘Benincà Proper Job Install’ award for August 2022.
