The Model 422 hydraulic swing gate operator
The Model 422 hydraulic swing gate operator is designed for private residences. They offer many of the benefits of a large gate operator in a compact form. A high-speed version of the 422 is available for pedestrian gates that require quick closure.
Hydraulic swing gate operators are inherently safer than other types of operators because they have fewer “pinch points.” In addition, FAAC 422 (10420012.5) operators are equipped with a hydraulic bypass valve for extra entrapment protection and a manual release that allows you to operate your gate if there is a power failure. A battery back-up unit is also available. The 402 hydraulic system can hydraulically lock the gate in your choice of the opened or closed positions. The 422 system can hydraulically lock the gate in your choice of the opened and/or closed positions. Both models have versions that allow your gate system is set up to provide special options including “gate-safe” or “gate-secure” configurations:
• Gate-safe: during power outages, a magnetic lock releases a closed gate to permit emergency access.
• Gate-secure: during power outages, an electric lock keeps a closed gate locked.
The versatile FAAC control panel allows for six operating modes including garage-door-like operation and a new HOLD OPEN function.
The 422 can be mounted inside the gate and still allow the gate to open to the inside or to the outside. All FAAC operators can be finished to blend with the gate. All swing gates require gate stops that limit the travel of each gate leaf and thus protect the operator. Optional concealed gate stops are available.
NOTE: To guarantee the safety and efficiency of its equipment, FAAC strongly recommends that qualified personnel test the safety system on an annual basis, as well as maintain the overall hydraulic or mechanical system.
A versatile option
The 422 system offers a wide range of gate leaf width options for residential and commercial locations. All 422 systems are simple to install and have the added benefit t of compatibility with all FAAC control and safety units.
Maximum security and safety
Our hydraulic lock system allows the gates to be held open or closed whilst anti-intrusion security is ensured by the addition of electric or magnetic locks. At the same time sensitive bypass valves in the hydraulic system ensure the maximum antic rushing safety - with a simple manual override facility in the Even of an emergency.
Low maintenance and quiet efficiency
The combination of a quiet operation, minimal maintenance, and low power consumption is the hallmark of the 422 hydraulic unit - providing a cost effective option for swing gate automation. The addition of a programmable control board provides a slowdown feature at the end of the opening and closing cycles to lower noise and prolong the life of the gate system.
