Factors to consider for new gate motor installation

There is a number of factors that determine both the type and size of gate motor to be installed. In most cases the biggest factor is gate size as it will determine the gate weight. Load capacity of gate motors start from 300kgs up to 3000kgs of gate weight. The other factor would be the number of operations the gate must make in a day. We usually advise our clients to go one size higher the normal weight of the gate just to give more lifespan to the motor. Contact us today for one of our friendly gate motor installers to give technical advice.

Gate motor installation is made easier and effective with a proper installation of the actual gate. A smooth rolling gate gives less work to the motor and remember the gate motor is not installed to push the heavy gate. We have had many people who ask for gate motor installation because they feel the gate is too heavy for the to open. Unfortunately this is not the main purpose of gate motors, but rather to open and close without need to push or pull the gate.

What causes the gate motor to break short after installation?

When the above mentioned pre-installation checks are not done right the motor gate gives problems not long after installation. Over and above all the checks we have mentioned earlier there is one more thing we have learnt over the years. If your gate has been working manually for a long time you need to consider putting new gate wheels on gate motor installation. This does not make sense to many but the fact is the remote gate motor pushes the gate at a faster speed than we do manually. Therefore if the gate wheels were already wearing out then the gate just speed up the process because of its speed. Lastly the cheaper way or short cut can be expensive, as such we advise you use professional gate services. Always use gate motor installers who give workmanship guarantee of at least 12 months.

Reviews

  • Felix was exremely efficient and helpful. I wouls recommend him any time.

  • Proffesional excellent service!

  • Phoned them in the afternoon and they arrived the same day. Must say Adolf and Colin really know what they are doing. The gate was fixed and then the garage door, which another company had quoted me thousands to replace the springs, these guys said the tension just had to be adjusted. I would recommend them to anyone needing motorised gate and Garage door repairs. Great service !!

  • We received amazing service from Felix. He was willing to come out at very short notice, and then an hour before he was due to arrive I had to let him know that we had load shedding. He was completely understanding and said I could just let him know when the power is back on. He also followed up with me during the day to get an update on the power. He fixed the gate motor same day at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend Felix to anyone. Thank you Felix, you are great.

  • The best service I have received in years. I have a Day Care (Creche) Felix and his Team just seem to strive to keep their Customer Service motto. Clients are number ONE to them. I recommend them to all. They go that EXTRA MILE to keep you happy.
