With regard to reopening problems concerning your SGS or Exavia drive, you should first check if it opens again in a test situation:
Activate your gate opening process then stop it mid-travel using the remote control.
Remove the arms of the gate leaf mounting brackets.
Reset and reprogramme the travel.
When this programming is complete, the arms should be in the closed position (lugs at the end of the arm).

When performing these actions, did the lugs begin opening again?
If yes, your electronics may be faulty or there may be an accessories problem.
If no, the position of the mounting brackets on the gate leaves has to be modified. To do this:</li>
the lugs should be in the closed position at the end of the cylinders and the gate completely closed: try, WITHOUT FORCING, to insert the arms in the mounting brackets.
They should not fall directly into the holes. This explains why the gate opens again as once they have reached their end limits, the lugs strike the brackets and the consider them an obstacle and thus, for safety reasons, they open again. You must move your gate leaf mounting brackets to avoid further problems.
