A thermostat for every application!


Are you looking for a thermostat that fits and performs like the original? That is supplied complete with the matching seals and gaskets? That comes with the right aftermarket support?

Look no further - Gates has you covered!

Gates Australia is pleased to release its new premium thermostat range. With their OE design, Gates thermostats fit perfectly, prevent leaks and most importantly, keep engine temperatures within original equipment specifications.

Covering the full gamut of thermostats, from conventional wax to housed thermostats and the latest map-controlled designs, Gates has a thermostat to suit any application.

“The industry is currently seeing a shift from standard thermostats to integrated thermostats,” explained Automotive Product Manager Stephanie Papathanasiou, “in fact, integrated housed thermostats are now the preferred design for all OEMs. 51% of the vehicles being produced today have them installed and that number will continue to increase in the future.

“That’s why Gates has released a comprehensive range of integrated housed thermostats,” she said.

The latest in thermostat technology

All Gates housed thermostats are integral thermostats complete with optimally designed housing for each application.

This range is complemented by the Gates map-controlled wax thermostats, which are ideal for the performance-optimised modern engine. These thermostats are controlled by the vehicle’s electronic control unit, which allows a precise and immediate response to the engine’s cooling needs.

In a map-controlled thermostat, an electric heating resistor is integrated into the wax element, and electrical heating of the wax element is triggered when the engine is exposed to specific load conditions.

This additional heat source allows the wax to expand further which in turn increases the flow volume of coolant, immediately regulating the engine to operate within its optimum temperature range.

“Gates thermostats, like all our products, are built to OE-exact standards, so you know that the part you purchase is the one that your car needs,” Ms Papathanasiou said.

Gates OE-design thermostats are supplied with the matching seals and gaskets, covering more than just one application, all handily packed in one box. That means the same Gates thermostat reference can be used for a whole range of vehicle types, simplifying your inventory and making it more convenient for you to purchase and install the correct thermostat. By carefully balancing the number of references to the market needs, Gates' range guarantees the highest car parc coverage by the fewest units of stock!

Simplifying the purchase process for busy workshops

Gates is also the first in the industry to supply thermostats in Celsius, making it easier for  you to determine the right part. Even the part numbering has been simplified: the first three digits represent the part’s chronological number, the next two digits indicate the opening temperature of the thermostat in degrees Celsius and the final letter and digit together represent the inclusion of seals and gaskets, with G1 and G2 indicating different combinations of seals and gaskets in the box.

Plus, finding the correct thermostat for your car is a breeze thanks to the new Gates Australia online catalogue.
