How does an automatic gate opener work?
Normally a machine is attached to your gate, which also depends on what kind of gate you have. It basically automates the opening and closing of your gate via remote control, allowing the user to stay inside the vehicle as the gate opens or closes, saving him or her both time and effort.
What are the parts of my gate that need regular check-ups?
Your gates like all other fixtures in your house and workplace need maintenance and regular check-ups. You should check on the condition hinges, rollers, mounting brackets and screws. See if they have rust and grease them as the need arises. If you have wooden gates check if there are parts that are starting to rot. Rotten portions of gates should be addressed at once to avoid further damages.
Why are underground motors used in gates?
When gates are automated, motors are used. According to experts at Gate Repair Pasadena, it is advisable to use underground motors. They are sealed and placed underground mainly because they are hidden out of sight and they do not destroy the aesthetics of the gates. These underground motors are protected from water ingress and are installed with adequate drainage to avoid damages. Underground motors are convenient and practical.
