Gate Automation Repairs
With 25 years of experience of manufacturing, installing and servicing gates we are able to offer a full repair service for existing installations of any make. This can include system upgrades when required including replacement of motors, control panels, fixed cabling (this is often installed using unsuitable cables that deteriorate outside).
We offer a free safety survey for all new clients and can advise and implement any work needed to bring the installation up to the required safety standards. We have force testing equipment that allows us to check the reversal forces and time when the gate meets an obstacle to verify its compliance with the regulations.
Contrary to popular understanding it has now been established in a recent court case that existing installations need to be safe – in effect this means that they need to comply with the regulations.
Common upgrades require the addition of compressible rubber safety edges to protect any trapping or shearing points. If these are squashed by contact with an object or person they cause the gates to back-off before exerting dangerous forces. This is particularly necessary for older 230v systems which have no inbuilt obstacle detection.
