Electric Gate Repair - Typical Problem Areas
Our years of automated gate repair experience here in Los Angeles and Orange County have shown us where many of the problems lie within these types of mechanisms. No matter what the brand, the make, or the size of the electric entry gate, here are a few of the most common sources of automated gate breakdown:
Gate arms and hinges
Your gate and hinges tend to wear over time, through continuous use. We play close attention especially to the hinges – they are working the hardest of all. Lack of lubrication is often an issue. Properly lubricated, your gate will run smoothly along its tracks, or swing smoothly on its hinges. A lack of proper lubrication will lead to erratic, rough opening and closing, and eventually breakdown of the automated gate system. Keep that gate and its hinges well lubricated at all times.
Cleaning Out the Bugs
All kinds of debris, including dirt, leaves, and yes – bugs – can get trapped in your automated gate components. Insects are the worst culprits because they are so small, and can get in virtually unnoticed – until it’s too late, and your gate’s performance starts to break down. Our automated gate repair and maintenance services include clearing out the bugs and all other debris which may be slowing down your gate, or causing it to fail altogether.
Rain, hail, high winds – all these forces of nature can damage an electric automated gate system. Ongoing exposure to the elements can lead to small issues with your gate which, left unaddressed, could result in large, expensive issues down the road. Regular inspection and maintenance of your automated gate will have it running problem-free all the year round.
There is no lubrication on tracks but if there is a problem we will let them know. He is jumping from swing gate to slide gates on the subject matter. Cleaning out bugs and debris to prevent rust billed up.( we have seen operators working fine but needed replacement do to rust and sometimes on a double swing or slide gate it could mean two operators do to old and now models and changing of technology) RUst Is Our Number One Problem!!! and maintenance need to happen on most operators every six months or if you have a lot of traffic every four months.in most cases you can Hear the operator working smoother when we are done with the maintenance .
