Electric Gate Service & Maintenance Automatic gate maintenance is essential in order to ensure the safety features are functioning correctly and to prevent in-service failures that could cause major disruption to day-to-day operations at the site where the electric gate is installed. Depending on the usage pattern, mode(s) of operation and business critically, electric powered gates should be serviced, maintained and repaired at least once every six months. Atlanta Entry Systems offers three levels of standardized automatic gate maintenance plans.
How often you should service your gate will depend on how many cycles the gates perform.
This is the number of times the electric gate opens and closes. Generally speaking, low usage residential electric driveway gates should be serviced at least 1-2 times per year; medium usage automated car park gates for an apartment block should be serviced at least 3 times per year; and heavy usage commercial automatic gates require the most frequent amounts of servicing of at least 4 times per year. In addition to offering electric gate repairs to our supplied products, Atlanta Entry Systems will be as equally happy to maintain gates designed, manufactured and installed by other gate contractor suppliers – subject to an initial gate inspection checklist.
Our preventative maintenance service includes inspection and lubrication of mechanical components, and inspection and testing of safety-related devices in line with current guidance from the HSE and the Powered Gate Group of the Door and Hardware Federation. In accordance with the DHF Best Practice Guide, all of our engineers are DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) approved and are 17th edition qualified electricians.
