Gate motors are the latest domestic appliances to be targeted by criminals, with significant increases in gate motor theft being reported countrywide.
As the South African market leader in gate automation and access control, Centurion Systems is conscious of the gate motor theft epidemic currently sweeping the country.
“It’s in the headlines with increasing regularity, and it’s not something that one can ignore” says CENTURION’s national branch manager Johan Lessing, speaking from his desk in North Riding, Johannesburg, where the company’s head office and manufacturing facility are situated.
“We knew we had to ameliorate the situation,” he continues. “We knew we had to come up with a viable countermeasure.”
This realisation prompted CENTURION to relook the design of their current theft-resistant cage designed for the D5-Evo sliding gate motor – their most popular solution – and a completely overhauled version was announced earlier this month.
