BFT Ares 1000 Slide Gate Opener

The BFT ARES 1000 is an automatic slide gate opener that is capable of moving slide gates weighing up to 2200 pounds and up to 75 ft in length. The BFT ARES is among the "medium to heavy" capable weight range, making it perfect for commercial or light industrial use. An optional, but highly recommended, battery backup unit is available for the ARES gate opener that fits perfectly inside the operator casing.
