We live in a country where 2.01 million crimes were recorded in 2019. The statistics are bad enough to cause a rare form of anxiety, so I`ll spare you the gory details. The short headline is that people have been reported to climb up roofs and stealing satellite dishes. Yes. Your gate motor is also not safe.
CENTURION Theft-Resistant Cage
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 realization 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.
