Electric Gate Servicing

If you have electric gates on your property, we are confident that you appreciate the way it makes your life so much easier, whilst also ensuring that your home or business has a high level of security. Many customers feel that they would not want to go back to a gate that is not operated by a motor to power opening and closing.

To keep the gate’s mechanised system up to scratch, it will need a regular inspection. At Harrogate Automation, we provide the electric gate servicing that you need to ensure that everything is in good working order. Developing problems can be identified and solved before they cause a system failure which can lead to potential repairs.

Electric Gate Servicing

What is involved in an electric gate service?

Whether you have automated hinged or sliding gates, our inspections begin with a check of the general construction to identify any obvious faults or problems. We also check post-construction alterations or components, as well as all bolts, welds, hinges, and fixings. Once we are happy that everything is operative, we lubricate and/or oil the moving parts before carrying out an electrical inspection.

We will inspect the motors, control panels and hydraulic operators to evaluate their condition and ensure that they are operating correctly. For example, we look for signs of the motors overheating, clean the unit control panel, as well as examining the electrical connections, and ensure the integrity and security of all the cables in the system.

If there is a fitted electrical safety device, we will ensure that this is operating accurately before opening, cleaning and resealing the photocells, intercoms and keypads, as well as checking the operation of loop detectors, safety switches, limit switches, photocells, mag locks and all other electrical components from radio receivers through to capacitors.

 

Electric Gate Maintenance

During the service, we look at the mechanical operation and the function of the gates as an overall unit, looking for signs of problems, such as unexpected noises or uneven movement. This includes checking the operation of track and drive rack to ensure a smooth operation. We will also as check the drive mechanism and any gearing. Since we know that security is important, we also look at the fitted control and locking devices.
