All automated equipment will need servicing regularly to make sure that it is in working order.

If you think about it, you wouldn’t think twice about getting your car serviced and making sure your electric gate is kept up to scratch shouldn’t be any different. In the long term, this will reduce the risk of a failure in operation or an unexpected breakdown.

If you are concerned about the trouble or inconvenience that gate servicing may cause, there is no need for you to worry. You might have heard that a lot of maintainance is required, and yes, they do need maintaining, but not as much as you think. High quality automated gates have sophisticated technology that has been tested meticulously.

We would of course recommend that your gate is serviced, as this will prevent a large bill if you were to go without a service for a long time and it eventually stopped working altogether.

Automated gates do have various designs and an annual service is recommended whatever the design, particularly as they are likely to be in use every day. An automated gate is an investment, so we want to make sure that you get the most out of it and protect the great investment that you have made.

During a service, the safety of the gate and all of its components are checked to make sure they are operating correctly, and we can sort out the issue if it is not. We take pride in our craftsmanship and delivery of service, so we aim to make sure that your gates are always working as they should. Your gate, the system and equipment must comply with HSE guidelines for gate safety, and this responsibility ultimately lies with the owner of the gate.

If you haven’t yet purchased your automated gate or if you have an existing manual gate and would like to enquire about installing an automation system, call 01743 455892 or email sales@theukelectricgatecompany.co.uk to discuss your requirements with our team.
