DOMESTIC SLIDING GATE MOTORS Durban North view here

 

Residential sliding gate motors or gate operators are only guaranteed up to a certain amount of running cycles per day and should not be used for complex gates, residential gate motors are usually up to 100 cycles per day some even 50 cycles per day if you run the motor more than that the guarantee expires.

INDUSTRIAL SLIDING GATE MOTORS Durban North view here

 

Industrial or commercial sliding gate motors or “gate operators” are used for heavy duty or high cycle applications for example doors opening 10 000 times a day can even be light doors like at hospitals or shopping centers. Industrial sliding gate motors also differ in how much weight and how many times a day they run their cycle so its very important to get your gate checked before installing any industrial gate motors.

WHEN DOES YOUR GATE MOTOR NEED A

SERVICE OF REPAIR IN Durban North?

 

When you look closely at the gate motor there should be no oil leaking from anywhere, if you see oil it means the oil is leaking from the gearbox and the gears could be running dry.

 

On some gate motors the oil leak can run over the pick up sensor and make the gate loose its place so you will find the gate opens and closes in the wrong place or bangs in to the end stops.

 

If you see oil its time to service the gate motor, we would remove the gate motor open up the gearbox clean out the old oil and what ever is in side and close up again using new seals on the gearbox and re filling with oil.

 

No gate motor ever needs grease, if you think that your motor or gate needs greasy you more than likely need a gate or gate motor repair not a tub of grease.

GATE MOTOR TIPS & SECURITY

ADVICE

Make sure the gate motor is securely fitted or welded down even the holding nuts can be welded.

Make sure the tooth rail is fitted properly and cannot be removed.

Most gate motors can be linked up to your alarm or fit a anti lifting alarm so when they try take it goes into alarm.

Lightning protection for your gate motor can also help with power surges and lightning strikes protecting the electrical components rather than repacking costly pc boards or charging units only replace the protector switch on your gate motor.

Keeping the gate track clean you can make the gate run smoother and not pick up bumps which can also damage the gate motor best to keep it clean to ensure you don’t have unnecessary repairs.

Using a good lock for the security bracket is very important if the lock is weak the rest of the gate motor security is only as strong as the lock used only use quality locks to lock up your gate motor.
