ELKA boom gates and gate openers

Rotech has been appointed as a distributor for ELKA, a German manufacturer of high-quality gate openers and boom gates with 35 years’ experience of successfully serving the Door and Gate Automation industry. With over 50,000 gate openers and boom gates installed in 70 countries, ELKA is not only highly experienced, but is a brand synonymous with proficiency and trust.

The Sentinel KM 24vdc linear swing gate opener is a heavy-duty and high-quality opener; and is equipped to open a single gate leaf, as large as 6m that weigh up to 500kg. Featuring electronic soft start and stop mechanism, along with safety sensing and an easily operated emergency release, this opener ensures smooth functioning and optimum safety. It also has an electromagnetic bolt that adds extra security to the swing gate.

The Sentinel ZT is also a heavy-duty opener with 24vdc motor and is suitable to open a single gate leaf measuring up to 4.5m wide and 450kg in weight, at an angle of up to 120°. Along with other features similar to that of the Sentinel KM, the ZT has 4 different types of articulated arms, which make it suitable for mounting on to brick pillars and other difficult applications.

ELKA also excels in manufacturing a wide range of boom gates for commercial car parks, toll roads and the mining industry. Rotech can now make all of their advanced products available to our clients and will initially stock the ES series of industrial boom gates with boom poles measuring 5-8m. The KL series with 9-12m poles along with other boom gates will also be made available. Both these heavy-duty industrial boom gates have a powder-coated aluminium cabinet with a 10yr warranty against corrosion. They feature 3 in-built loop detectors that can be used as a directional logic and enable the control of traffic lights to regulate the vehicle entry and exit. With 6 different programmable relays and electronic safety sensing, these boom gates are extremely efficient and safe. They have numerous inputs to facilitate integration with other access control equipment. The vehicle counter in these boom gates helps keep count on the number of vehicles that access the area; it is especially useful to tally against the receipts in places with paid parking. Moreover, built with the latest technology, these boom gates can be remotely controlled through a computer, using the patented ‘Easy Control’ software.

With the superior quality and numerous in-built functions, ELKA's technically advanced products are now avaliable in the Australian market.
