Getting home and dry in Darwin and Palmerston, should never be left to luck. Heavy rains, especially in the Wet, can drench you in seconds. But you know that. So do we. But what you might not know is that we're the trusted experts for installing automatic gate motors on your sliding gate or swinging gates.

Home and dry with Dunwrights Air and Electrical, Darwin and Palmerston, with Automatic Gate Motors

Just think back to 7.45AM on a Tuesday and you’re late for work in the middle of the Wet. You can see your automatic sliding gates in front of you, through the rain bouncing off the windscreen of the car.

As a deluge of water falls from above, you press that remote control gate opener, and nothing happens.

There can be many reasons for this but the most common ones including undersized motors, motors that don’t suit Top End weather conditions, lack of maintenance, and, lack of warranty.

That’s why the smart money is on choosing the locals with experience and expertise – that’s us: Dunwrights Air & Electrical. Call us now on 8945 3216 or use our Priority Booking Form to arrange a call.

There are many ways we can help you through our quality work on your gate motors, by:

  • Custom fitting automatic sliding gates to suit the gates you’ve chosen to fit your entry or exit space, whether that means a 4m rail or an 8m rail. Because we’re local and experienced, we know what electric motors to choose to suit the size and weight of your gate. Motor size and type also is dependant on the number of opening cycles required and the amount of use.
  • Choosing time and field tested components that are heavy duty and of sound construction because we know what weather conditions your gates will face in the Northern Territory.
  • Protecting you against power blackouts by supplying solar powered and battery backup models to make sure your gate stays operational when the power’s down.
  • Choosing options with keypads and beam detectors as well as auto close for extra safety features and security.
