Quality Gate Service Ensures Smooth Operation

If you have an automated gate system, the last thing you want is to have it break down at a busy time, resulting in business traffic that can’t get in or out, or long lines of frustrated residents who have to wait to enter or leave their homes. To keep customers happy and your business at its most productive, it’s crucial to be able to deal with such an emergency and get your automatic gate back into operation as quickly as possible. This is where hiring a professional in commercial door and gate installation to perform regular gate service comes in.

The time to prepare for a problem with your gate automation is well before it happens. And the first step to doing that is establishing a relationship with a reliable gate sales and service company that can reduce the likelihood of breakdowns occurring, and fix them in short order if they do.

You don’t want to end up frantically punching numbers on the phone, trying to find a repair service while the traffic jam is piling up at your business’s major entry point. Not to mention, in a time of crisis, it’s always nice to have a familiar face who knows all about your gating and enclosure system be the one who fixes it. It makes stressful times easier and gets your business back on track faster.

Common Problems with Automated Gate Openers

  • The gate won’t open or close. This most basic problem could be due to any one of multiple causes including interference with the antenna, mechanical problems with the gate opener, or electrical issue with the power supply, photo eye, key switch or edge transmitters.
  • Gate opens or closes when it’s not supposed to. (This could potentially be hazardous, not to mention a security risk.)
  • Remote control or other means of automated access stops working.
  • The gate has become damaged, tweaked or off-balance, and the automation system for the gate can’t operate smoothly.

Hire Trained Troubleshooters for Gate Service and Maintenance

All of the above problems can be fixed, though they’ll require attention from a qualified gate service professional; trying to deal with them yourself might only make the problem worse, cause damage, or even be dangerous. In fact, when an automatic gate malfunctions in any way, it’s generally best not to touch it, but instead to call for gate service immediately. So, to minimize your business’s downtime from a non-functioning automated gate, it’s important for you to be able to rely on door and gate service personnel who are highly capable and available right when you need them.
