with brake (lock)
The brake model slide gate operator has an
internal braking system. It is useful if security or vandalism
is an issue.
The standard SL-1000 does not have a brake in
it. There is no electric lock option available for this
operator. The operator will hold the gate shut and one
person can not force it open, however two people or a force
equal or greater may be able to force it open. This would
either break the chain, strip the internal gears or both.
You may prevent this from happening by ordering the SL-1000B.
The SL-1000B has an internal brake installed. This brake
locks the gears down so that they can not be forced open.
If a strong force were to try to force it open, the gears would
not be stripped. Someone would have to cut and remove the
chain in order to force the gate open. Simply put, it is a
safety device to prevent operator damage and to further secure
the gate. It is more expensive than the standard SL-1000
as you have noticed, however it may be a cheap insurance policy
