Simple Gate Operator Maintenance That Can Save You Downtime and Money
A couple of quick and easy self-check points can extend equipment life and help you to avoid a service call:
- Check the bolts used to mount the gate arm/boom to the flange (pic above). Make sure none are missing and that they are tight and not rusted.
- Check mounting hardware used on a swing gate drive arm where it connects to the fence gate and the drive chain. Also check brackets that connect to the slide fence section to make sure that none are loose, missing, or damaged.
Often hardware is found to be finger tight or missing completely when service technicians are called out for a non-related problem. Any missing or damaged parts can always be ordered from i2 Security Solutions and our service technicians will happily replace these parts when needed. We also sell preventative maintenance agreements where these and other critical components are checked on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis.
