6 Maintenance Tips For Your Automatic Gate

  1. 1. 6 Maintenance Tips For Your Automatic Gate
  2. 2. Automated Gate  Installing an automatic gate is a great way to protect your property, provide convenient, secure access and raise the value of your home.  Like everything else around the house, automatic gates also require a certain amount of maintenance to keep them working well and lasting longer.
  3. 3. Automated Gate Maintenance Tips Here are some automated gate maintenance tips to help ensure that your gate stays in the best condition possible.  Inspect your automatic gate at least once a month  Keep your gate and the track clean and clutter-free  Keep it smooth  Check the auto reverse function  Lookout for pests  Servicing and adjusting automatic gates
  4. 4. Inspect Your Automatic Gate At Least Once A Month  It is important to routinely inspect your gate for wear and tear that requires repairs. Not only is inspection important to reduce the cost of repairs, but it is also important to ensure the healthy operation and smooth performance.  Check for the wear and damage of metal racks, drive belts, electrical connections, rollers and bearings, etc.  If you notice any signs of damage, it’s imperative to replace it immediately to prevent your gate's performance from being compromised. Keep an eye out for rust on any metal parts of your gate.
  5. 5. Keep Your Gate And The Track Clean And Clutter-free  Most automatic gates can simply be washed down with water (avoiding electrical parts of course).For slide gates, make sure there’s nothing stuck in or near the actual mechanism of the gate.  Also, be sure to clean any mechanical parts of the gate to keep it running smoothly and without interruption.  It’s best to use dry, clean clothes to remove dirt and debris from the electronic components of your automatic gate.
  6. 6. Keep It Smooth  With sliding or barrier gates, an important part of regular maintenance is to ensure the gate is properly oiled.  Of course, you won’t need to lubricate the entire gate, just the important parts. After cleaning, most manufacturers recommend you lubricate moving parts roughly every 6 months.  Your automatic gate provider should have a recommended lubricant depending on the automatic gate system that you have chosen.
  7. 7. Check The Auto Reverse Function  Many manufacturers recommend that you check the auto reverse function of your automatic gate on a regular basis.  Generally this is done by placing a timber plank in the path of the gate. It should be large enough to cause an obstacle.  If it is working correctly, the door should recognize the minor obstruction and reverse operation. If this does not happen you will need to stop using the gate and call a professional.
  8. 8. Lookout for pests  An often neglected part of automatic gate maintenance is pests. Pests such as insects, rodents and reptiles can destroy the electrical components of the gate.  Insects such as spiders cause similar issues with webs, while ant’s nests can also corrode circuitry.  Lizards are notorious for borrowing and getting stuck in the operators, so be sure to keep an eye out for this!  It may be a good idea to get a pest control professional to inspect your gate once a year to be extra vigilant.
  9. 9. Servicing And Adjusting Automatic Gates  The automatic gate you have installed may have parts that need routine servicing to ensure they operate smoothly.  Regular servicing of your automatic gate ensures it is working correctly and does not need any repairs.  Hire a professional to perform routine scheduled maintenance checks on your automatic gate.
