DuraGates CGS-500.8G, Grande Primary/Secondary 8-Wheel Carriage Set
Opening & Weight Range :
Grande Carriage set with integrated drive system connects directly to the gate operator and hides the mechanics within the track for a safe, protected installation. 8 wheels with noiseless shielded bearings protect against dust and increase service life. The Grande model is the solution for heavy ornate residential gates, heavy or wide commercial applications, and heavy duty, high cycle industrial gates. Automation Ready!
Gear rack centering device
Two piece set, reusable. Use this installation tool to accurately center and align the gear rack inside the track. It centers the rack down the length of the track, aligns the teeth at rack joints to prevent gear binding, and acts as a drilling jig to hold the rack into place as the mounting holes are drilled.
Drive Shaft Coupling
This coupling connects the output driveshaft of the gate operator directly to the input driveshaft on the primary carriage. This gives a direct, secure and safe connection between the motor and the gate. Specify gate operator and/or specs on output driveshaft.
End Wheel for UL325 Compliance
The End Wheel bolts into each end of the track and complies with UL325 safety code for automated gates. It gives a finished look and prevents dirt, snow, etc. from getting inside the track and interfering with the operation of the carriages. The wheel allows the gate to roll into the bottom
end cup without scraping the paint or galvanized coating.
Bottom End Cup
This cup receives the track in either the closed or open position. The beveled leading edge allows for a smooth entry and stop. The cup holds the gate steady, reducing vibrations from wind conditions, etc., and prolongs the life of the carriages and gate operators.
Galvanized J-Bolts are set into the concrete pad as it is poured. Once it has cured, the carriages
are then secured to the pad using these bolts. J-Bolts are the preferred method of anchoring the carriages to the concrete pad. Wedge anchors with two-part epoxy will work but need to be sized to each load according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
The foundation plate provides a solid base for leveling the carriage on the pad. It prevents the leveling screws from digging into the pad and causing long term alignment issues. By keeping the carriage bottom from being in direct contact with the concrete pad, it slows down corrosion effects.
