Automatic gates have brought undisputed comfort, since they have made it possible to open the accesses on which they are installed without getting out of the vehicle and without any effort.

The main purpose of every electric lock is to open after having received an electrical pulse. Electric locks can be used to close drive-through or pedestrian doors and gates, indoors or outdoors. They are ideal for automated access points, since they can be controlled remotely, but they can also be installed on entrances with manual opening.
One of the typical uses of electric locks is closing main entrance doors. The problem is that a main entrance door can also be very heavy, especially if it is a large wooden door. But a large metal gate is also very heavy. In situations of this type a common electric lock can break frequently as it is excessively stressed at every opening and closing. Continue reading →
The gate is normally the first visible access from the outside of a property. That’s why, mostly, we focus on its appearance, sometimes to the detriment of security and practicality. However, like any door, even gates need an adequate protection, which takes into account the characteristics of the gate and can thus maximise its security.

However, it should be emphasised that convenience is not always synonymous with security and that the presence of the motor in the automated door does not guarantee the security of our goods. And here, sometimes, especially in this age of fast technological development, fascinated by the promise of increasingly advanced products, we forget the main purpose of doors: not to open more easily, but to make us feel secure and to defend our goods, inside our properties.

In the previous blog we tried to answer a question we have been asked many times, about electric locks and their use. However this week, as promised, we will show you other qualities of the Viro electric locks, which are not only resistant, but also functional and versatile.
In today’s blog we would like to respond to the numerous requests from individuals, condominium administrators, but also companies, who write to us asking which is the most suitable electric lock for an installation on very heavy doors or iron gates.
There are often complaints that maintenance or replacement must be performed more than necessary following frequent breakdowns of common electric locks (those fitted with latch and ejector, which we usually see applied to pedestrian walkways), because they are “tired” by the frequent openings / closures.
The increasingly hectic and stressful rhythms of everyday life sometimes lead to slight distractions or oversights which may adversely affect our personal or household security.How many times do you leave home and forget to set up the alarm? Or leave a window, the car or the garage door open?
