PM Program FAQ

Who needs a preventative maintenance program?  

To ensure reliable operation, maximum system life and cost effectiveness, we recommend that all of our clients take advantage of our Preventative Maintenance Program.  This program ensures that preventative maintenance actions will be performed on a regular basis to help avoid preventable failures and safeguard your warranty. 

My gate works fine, why should I have regular gate maintenance?

Your automatic gate system should be treated like your car. If you never perform a tune up, change the oil or check your tires, you could end up with very costly repairs and potential safety hazards. We take your safety and security very seriously, so you should too!

How often do I need gate operator maintenance?

For residential single family homes we recommend semi-annual. For commercial, self storage and multi family we recommend quarterly.

Whats included in the PM Program?

Grease/lube gate hinges, clean inside operator, clean tracks, inspect/lube guide rollers, adjust chains/belts, lube chain on slide gates, check power sources, test main batteries, clean/test solar panels, inspect wire connections, test connected access controls, safety devices and replace 9 volt/AA batteries as needed.

How much does this cost?​

It varies since every automatic gate is unique, but often it is less than a service call.
