FAAC 422 Swing Gate Opener The 422 hydraulic swing gate operator is designed for private residences and small commercial applications. It offers many of the benefits of a large gate opener in a compact form. Hydraulic swing gate operators are inherently safer than other types of operators because they have fewer “pinch points.” In addition, 422 operators are equipped with a hydraulic bypass valve for extra entrapment protection and a manual release that allows you to operate your gate if there is a power failure. A battery back-up unit is also available. The 422 system can hydraulically lock the gate in your choice of the opened and/or closed positions. The 422 can be set up to allow your gate system be set up to provide special options including “gate-safe” or “gate-secure” configurations: • Gate-safe: during power outages, a magnetic lock releases a closed gate topermit emergency access. • Gate-secure: during power outages, an electric lock keeps a closed gate locked. The versatile FAAC control panel allows for six operating modes including garage-door-like operation and a new HOLD OPEN function. The 422 can be mounted inside the gate and still allow the gate to open to the inside or to the outside. All FAAC operators can be finished to blend with the gate.
