Surrey Automatic Gate Repair
Gates around homes and commercial spaces add an element of curb appeal and safety — but only if they are working! There is nothing worse than having to get our of your vehicle during cold weather or rain to fight with gate mechanisms or open them up manually. Driveway gates are designed to be convenient but when they break down, they are anything but! Professional Surrey automatic gate repair services ensure that your gates are able to swing, slide, fold or rotate properly.
Keeping entry points and exits in good working order means understanding how your gate works. It is easy to understand the basic mechanics of a standard gate but when dealing with automatic models, it can be tough to keep track of exactly how these work. Without regular gate maintenance, mechanisms can rust, dry out, get bumped or become unaligned. If you start to notice unusual sounds, dents, dings or irregular openings and closings, avoid undue strain and unnecessary damage calling Knock Knock Door Repair can help to identify problem areas and get them fixed!
The Benefits of Expert Automatic Driveway Gate Services
A residential gate might be put to use several times per day but this number skyrockets in a commercial environment. A golf course, for example, might have its gates open dozens of times per day, if not a hundred times! Higher traffic areas open the door for bumps, dings and dents. This makes it important to make regular maintenance a part of your routine.
Gate structures are the most commonly used (and commonly damaged) aspects of your system. The most common materials for these areas are steel, iron and wood. While steel and iron are built tough, they are not immune to damage. These areas can be dinged or bent in while wood can crack and splinter. These issues can be easy to spot during an inspection but can easily fly under the radar.
In the same way the structures need to be inspected. Automatic door sensors rely on access control systems, sensors, keypads and other technical areas, all of which need to be inspected and treated where necessary.
Knock Knock Door Repair: The Best Way to Repair Automatic Gates
There are plenty of types of gate on the market, each of which have their own unique characteristics. What might work for one type of gate won’t work for another, so custom treatment plans are necessary. An electric gate, for example, needs to be assessed for structural issues, as well as examining wiring, motors, sensors and more. Making regular inspections and maintenance a part of your routine will prolong the lifespan of your systems but when they need to be repaired or replaced, call a Knock Knock technician for repairs and proper installations.
