Clean your gate regularly
Remove visible dust or bird droppings, rinse with clean water and dry with a cloth or under direct sunlight to keep it in perfect condition.
Installing security devices to gates
Although an automatic gate is a best choice for your home, certain risks may still occur when it’s operated. Security devices will stop your gate from automatically closing and swinging on to hit a vehicle or anybody who is in the way.
Why is it important to upgrade the gate openers?
Gates are usually installed in large estates, apartments or office buildings- for higher security. Upgrading the commercial or residential gate openers will make the entrance more secure because today these openers offer many new safety features that can be added for higher protection of the people. They are also more convenient for daily use as they work faster than before. Of course, if the device itself is old, a new gate opener installation will be needed for the same reasons.
Pros and cons of clickers and keypads
People often wonder whether to get a gate clicker or keypads but it would actually depend on their lifestyle. Someone would find a multicode remote more practical since the garage door opener is operated by the same clicker but there is always the risk of losing remotes. A gate opener keypad will give you autonomy but you must never share the password with anyone.
Approach the gate with caution
When you are entering or exiting the driveway, drive with low speed to avoid bumping into the steel gate. Many accidents have been reported by people, who didn't control their vehicles properly and damaged the gates. If the size of the gate is relatively small, you must also be careful as you are passing through to avoid ruining both the car and the gate at the two sides.
