Many factors can see the operation of your electric gates deteriorate over time, but with proper maintenance, these factors are reduced giving you peace of mind that your gate is operating safely.
For example, if you have underground operators, which most gates do, a common problem is the drainage getting blocked with debris. Depending on who has installed the system there might not be any drainage to begin with, which can cause the boxes to flood with water. The result is usually that your gate motors will be submerged in water for extended periods. This is not good for the longevity and operation of the system and will over time, require expensive repairs and even a complete replacement of the motors. With our annual service packages, severe cases can usually be identified early and rectified before needing to replace the motors.
All maintenance begins by lifting the gates off their hinges and removing the motors to give full access to the underground box. We then remove any debris and check the drainage is working as it should. Whilst the gates are off their hinges, we will grease all moving parts and hinge points to give you a gate that moves with ease before any automation is re-applied.
We can now move on to the manual release blocks. In the event of a power or system failure, these blocks allow you to manually release your gates meaning you cannot get stuck inside or outside the property. These often seize up due to lack of operation as the gates are mainly automatic and not used manually. Again, we will ensure these are in working order.
Now that we have a system moving with ease and draining all water that might get trapped in the boxes. We then look at the photocell beams, which are often filled with cobwebs, dust & insects. If these beams are deemed to be blocked, it will prevent the gates from operating. We check all photocells are clean and cable connections are good.
To finish off our service, we will provide you with your force test results, which will prove your gates comply with current health and safety legislation.
All these problems we have mentioned are covered with our FREE service.
