Living in South Africa it’s almost essential to have a backup battery for your driveway gate and garage door. These batteries kick in when there are power failures or load shedding. Even when the power is out, your gate and garage motor will still be functioning as normal

The average lifespan of a backup battery is 2-3 years. However, the lifespan of the battery can be affected by the frequency of power outages or load shedding, as well as the size and weight of the gate or garage door.

It is important to keep the backup battery in good condition. This means regularly charging the battery and checking the electrolyte levels.

Many older gate motors and garage motors do not have a battery back up, You can contact us if you would like to upgrade or just like to find out if your current motor supports a buck up battery.
