Why does the motor in your driveway gate matter?

Smartwood Gate

If you’re choosing a driveway gate for your home or business, you’re probably thinking about things like the style, the colour and whether to go for swing or sliding – and likely one of the last things you’re thinking about is the motor that operates the gate. That is, until something goes wrong with it, and all of a sudden you’re locked out of, or inside, your driveway – with kids waiting for you to pick them up at school or a job to get to!

At Fencemakers, we offer premium Australian-made steel gates, and we only use FAAC motors in our gates, as we feel that reliability and quality when it comes to gate motors is extremely important. You may be deciding between our gates, or buying cheaply made gates and motors manufactured overseas – so here are the reasons we think it’s important to spend that little bit extra on a reliable quality gate and motor:

FAAC gate motor


When it comes to your driveway gate motor, reliability should be your most important concern. After all, you don’t want to get stuck either in your driveway or out on the street because of a dead gate motor. With a higher quality motor, you can have peace of mind in knowing that your driveway gate will always open when you need it to, without leaving you stranded outside when it is pouring with rain or stuck inside when you are running late for an important meeting.

UV Resistance

Your gate motor is going to be outside all day, every day, so it needs to be able to stand up to the elements, especially the harsh West Australian sun. With cheaper materials, your motor’s parts can begin to deteriorate or crack over time, thus greatly increasing the likelihood of engine malfunctions. When you are willing to spend a bit more for higher quality, you’ll get a motor made from UV resistant materials that are designed to withstand the rigors of permanent outdoor life.

Quality Electronics

As with just about any motor, your gate’s motor will have some electrical components to it. The last thing you want is for those components to short circuit, rendering your gate utterly useless. With a bit of extra spending up front, you can ensure that you get higher quality circuit boards that will be able to last through many years as you and your family go in and out through the gate each day.


Your driveway gate will likely get used multiple times every day, so you need your motor to be made from parts that are built to last. Otherwise, you run the risk of having to replace the motor again after just a short while. Although you may believe that you are saving money by purchasing a cheaper gate and motor, the fact of the matter is that it will likely end up costing you more in the long run due to constant repairs or multiple motor replacements.

Save Yourself the Trouble with a Quality Motor

The best way to prevent having unnecessary motor replacement and repair costs is to spend just a bit more initially for a high-quality motor. Here at Fencemakers, we exclusively use FAAC gate motor products in our work. Over the years, we have found them to be the most reliable and cost-effective for residential and commercial driveway gates.
