Another issue is that the theft of copper cables to be sold for scrap metal is rife in certain areas, and the dismantling and stealing of electrical pylons cause the pylons to collapse and disrupt the power supply.

Ask Billy: What Are the Benefits of a Centurion Gate Motor?

Centurion gate motors for residential and light industrial applications deliver market-leading security and convenience. Our feature-rich, well-priced gate openers are quick and easy to install, and our customer service is second to none. Back in South Africa 35 years ago we never locked our doors. There was no need. We’d walk in and out of our neighbors’ homes without a second thought and business owners weren’t overly concerned with protecting their property.    At that time, a motorized gate was something that I couldn’t have imagined ever needing.
