       Words from Senior Application Engineer, Anthony Gaeto Top of Page
    Anthony Gaeto Application Engineer "The Estate Swing and Estate Slide are quickly growing as the premier source for residential gate openers. High levels of technology and unique designs combined with easy installations that most homeowners can handle themselves are pushing the Estate Swing And Slide as a principal in the industry.

    The Estate Slide E-SL 1200 is an attractive, low-key unit that can handle light weight well rolling residential slide gates. One thing to be sure of with this opener is that it does in fact roll easy. You should be able to push your gate and have it roll on its own open or closed. If you have to help it along you may want to upgrade to the E-SL 1800.

    Its simple design keeps the overall size of the unit down to a minimum while still having a large motor. This is unique to most other gate openers found today. Other opener companies have just thrown together plastic oversized housings without giving much thought to design or durability. The Estate Slide is steel with a hard plastic top, making it virtually indestructible.

    The positioning of the control board also has been well thought through for unsurpassed ease in usability. Simply remove four screws and the top comes off; there you will find the control board with plenty of room to program your opener. The wiring and accessory connection panel is conveniently located behind a door on the side of the unit, so accessories can be easily added at any time.

    The Estate Slide features magnetic limit switches. The magnetic limits are a real advancement in sliding gate openers. Without physical limits to be tripped, the chances of malfunction are greatly reduced if not eliminated. was selected as a FAAC partner because our profound commitment to customer service.

       Factory Visit Updates Top of Page
    As part of one of's constant quality checks and knowledge updates. I personally go to Italy annually to visit the factories in which Estate Swing products are made. One of my goals is to see what exactly is being done to meet the high standards of the ISO 9000 ratings. What I have found is every part that is assembled is put through a computer-guided test. Some tests for example are to be sure the electrical side of the part has the correct amount of resistance; another to test the motion vibrations of moving parts, a third is the overall longevity of the part. The computer then rejects or accepts the part. Another test done at the factory is running samples of the openers at 50% duty cycle for the entire life of the warranty at its rated capacities to ensure reliability.
