There are many options for opening gates in addition to the remote control. All gates will be equipped with a button inside the gate or at home that can open and close the gate. We can also place a PIN pad or a card reader outside of your gate if you want to be able to let several people open your gate but not have the remote control. With card/PIN systems you can even set the time of day and days of the week someone can enter. A great option for staff!
There are two basic types of automatic gates/doors:
The gate opener is a small motor that is mounted next to the gate. The gear rack that is attached to the gate which then pushes or pulls the shelf to open or close the gate. There is a box with a control panel that is installed somewhere in the gate in a safe area for storing electronics.
Most swing gates are double leaf, so we attach a mechanical arm to each side and the gate opens and closes by extending or retracting these arms. Like the swing gate motor, there is a small box to hold the control panels.
We also sell and install full garage door systems, both automated and manual. With this system, you can slide to the side of the door or lift the door. They are a great space saver for an indoor space. We can use all types of materials, but we recommend aluminum because it is light, durable, and beautiful. Aluminum doors last up to 20-30 years without requiring much maintenance.
Using a door model that is suitable for your garage is very important. We will visit your house and carefully review your needs and give you the proper solution. Once installed, we will guide you to use and maintain this garage door system. After one week we will come back to check your gate and adjust it for maximum performance. After that, we usually schedule visits every six months to carry out preventive maintenance. Both types of gate systems can be removed if you move to a new house!
If you need a gate for a complex or your house has many people entering, it might be better to add a PIN or Card reader to your gate system. With this system, you can create a card or PIN code specifically for certain people. So they can access the gate without requiring a remote control. You can delete a PIN or card if you want to cancel access for that person (fired, lost card, etc.).
The photo above is a card reader that is attached to the gooseneck pole, so you no longer need to get out of the car to open the gate!
