Are you considering automatic gates at your Newton Mearns home or business?

If you are, then you are considering an excellent addition to your property but, some people have concerns about their installation and use. Here, we attempt to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about automatic gates. If you need to know more, simply call us for further help and advice.

I have seen battery operated arms that can be added to my existing garden gates – will these do the job?

These battery operated arms are more about assisting the gate to open and is not quite true to the definition of an automatic gate. They offer a limited amount of power and they may also not be as robust as you think in opening and closing gates.

In spite of this, it is possible for these gates to hurt people when they malfunction, for example trapping someone or continuing to close or open, even when there is something in the way. You must realise that you are responsible for the safe operation of the gates.

I have moved in to a property that already has electric gates installed. Are they safe to use?

We would suggest calling us to book an appointment so that we can service and maintain the automatic gates at your Newton Mearns home.

This way we can ascertain if they are safe to use, if they meet current regulations and safety guidelines, as well as making good any repairs that are needed.

What happens if I get locked in or out by automatic gates?

This is a rare occurrence, but can and has happened.

Many automatic gate companies will have a helpline that you can call, although this may only extend to customers who have had gates installed by them. They will respond to any calls where the gates have malfunctioned.

Many homeowners also opt for two ways to access or leave through their gates – they may have an in-car fob and they may also have a keypad.

What about if the electricity cuts out? How will the gates work then?

Most modern automatic gates at Newton Mearns property will have a battery as stand-by on the system and so in the event of a power cut, the battery will allow the gates to operate for some time.
This is why it is important to have your gates serviced regularly, so that the battery life can be checked on.
