DACE Sprint vs Condo – How Are They Different?

Despite looking very similar on the surface, the two latest models of DACE sliding gate motors – the Condo and the Sprint – are quite different.

When the Solo was released in the mid-2010s, it represented a large step forward for DACE gate systems. But with the next generation just a couple of years later, we would change the game so drastically again with the introduction of the faster Sprint model.

The Condo has long been the standard for performance and reliability in sliding gates in Australia, and it continues to set the bar high for quality affordable gate motors in the industry.
