We recently carried out a Gate Service in Aspley Heath, Buckinghamshire. We carried out the original automatic sliding gate installation in 2015. The Gate Service in Aspley Heath consisted of a thorough inspection of all components. The infrared photocells are cleaned and checked for any insect or moisture ingress. The motor unit is also checked for insect and moisture ingress. The aluminium sliding gate has several sensitive edges fitted across the installation. We replaced the batteries in the wireless sensitive edges. The sliding track is cleared of debris and inspected for any obstruction. The toothed racking running along the bottom of the gate is checked to ensure it is still firm. The toothed racking allows for some adjustment should it be required. Automatic sliding gates can settle over time. Occasionally this can cause binding between the toothed racking and pinion resulting in additional strain being placed on the Beninca Sliding Gate Automation equipment. All access control equipment is checked and tested. All safety equipment is checked with force readings being taken to ensure the gates continue to comply with current DHF guidelines. Finally the gates are given an overall inspection to check for any signs of structural fatigue or damage. The Gate Service in Aspley Heath is the first one since the automatic sliding gate was installed. Continuing with annual servicing will help prolong the life of your Automated Gates. Whenever we attend automatic gates that have not been serviced for many years normally the main reason for the failure is because of neglect.
