What is the best gate entry system to get?
You have quite a few options available to choose from. A telephone entry system (TES), an intercom or a keypad. With a keypad, whoever comes to the gate needs to have the code. This may prove a bit problematic for the pizza delivery guy. If you choose a TES, the visitor can use the system to call the phone line. This often works well for commercial gate systems. With a gate intercom, wired or wireless, you can have a radio signal transmit to a designated receiver. Either that or – with modern gate intercoms – send a signal/text directly to your smartphone. Consult with the experts at Gate Repair Euless to find the perfect coms method for your needs/budget.
Can I do any maintenance on my gate, and if so, what kind?
Yes. In fact, we strongly advise that you do! Marine-grade grease or high-quality silicone spray is essential to keep your bolts, screws and gate hinges working smoothly. You can also apply the spray to the drive chains (if your opener uses one). We also suggest getting rid of rust as soon as you spot it. When neglected, rust can continue to spread and will become more than an eyesore. Simply use some sandpaper and then apply a rust-inhibitor thereafter. In addition, we suggest having your gate professionally serviced at least once a year. This will help you ensure the system remains in optimal shape for a long time.
