Gate Opener Service and Maintenance

Maintenance is a key step in the healthy, long life of your automatic gate. Your gate’s chains should be cleaned, greased and tensioned as just one example of regular maintenance on your gate operator. Your gate opener should be maintained and serviced annually. American Access Company provides a complete service program through our service agreement or whenever you call. We will conduct an annual compliance check for proper maintenance and safety. Common features we inspect and adjust during these appointments include:

  • Chains
  • Guides
  • Chain rollers
  • Trucks
  • All moving components

Gate Opener Replacement

Replacing a worn-out gate operator involves more than just swapping-out the unit. It involves upgrading the gate system and gate safety devices to be compliant with the new gate opener. Today’s gate openers require integrated safety devices be in-play before beginning operation. American Access Company’s professional staff are knowledgeable not only on today’s technology but on older units as well. We have been installing gate openers and automated gate devices for 50+ years.

Gate Opener Repair

Only a few decades ago, a gate operator was very simple and made of only a few components.  Repairs were simple with these older devices. Modern gate openers are complicated pieces of machinery with integrated gate safety devices, plug-in and standalone components and multiple circuit boards. Today’s gate openers look more like a personal computer on the inside than a traditional gate operator.

Automated Gate System Installation

Modern gate openers are not able to function completely on their own. Each automatic gate system will require at least five different gate entry control devices for your automatic gate system. A combination of the following products is needed for a complete automated gate system:

  • Photoeyes
  • Keypads
  • Contact edges
  • Proximity readers
  • Photoelectric through beams
  • Ground loops and wands
  • Card readers
