Getting an automatic gate installed is one thing, keeping them in perfect condition is another. Fortunately, our technicians from Brisbane Automatic Gates Systems are happy to provide you with regular maintenance and servicing.
But in case you want to do the quick fix yourself, here are our top 5 tips to get you going:
Before you can even know it, insects such as ants can build a colony within your equipment. They mostly hide in control boxes and warmer places such as safety photocells. To prevent this, regularly check the area around the equipment for any ant or other vermin trails.
A quick brush around and place friendly insecticide around the units. (Do not spray any liquids directly on the equipment). To ensure your safety and smooth running of your equipment, do not open up any part of the system and talk to one of our friendly technicians if you feel that Insects and Vermin are a major challenge.
Obstructions such as small sticks and stones can prevent your sliding gate from running smoothly. Simple actions such as sweeping around the track or blower vac to keep the track clean. Do not spray any lubricant or solvents on the track or gate itself as this can cause major damage.
Automatic Gate Hinges
Hinges are often the most overworked part of the gate. Therefore, it is highly recommended to regularly check if they’re in good working condition. We can provide you with a silicone spray for lubrication or in cases when basic solutions aren’t working anymore, our technicians are here to help.
With the storm season fast approaching, a power outage is inevitable. If a power outage occurs and you need your gates open you are required to set your automation to manual mode. Ensure that this option is still working from time to time. Practice this every 2 months.
Feel free to contact us for any assistance if you do not how to put your system to manual mode and be ready for those times of power outage.
You may have noticed, remote controls usually feature a flashing light every time you open or close your gate. Once the light stops flashing, you need to replace the batteries. Do you have spare batteries handy? They can be picked up at any store or we can provide any batteries at your convenience.
Regular automatic gate servicing is required to ensure optimum security for you and your family.
If the gates are for regular domestic use, annual maintenance is recommended. For commercial properties, on the other hand, regular servicing every 6 months is required to ensure the gates are always safe and convenient to use.
