What safety features should I look for in a gate?
Gates are intended not only for aesthetics but also for safety and security. Gate Repair Moorpark specialists recommend the use of remote controls or intercoms and gate openers that have sensors. By having these safety features accidents are avoided when something goes wrong with your gates. Sensors reverse the motion of the gate when something gets in the way thus preventing anybody to get hurt or something to get destroyed.
What should be done when the alignment of the gate is not right?
The alignment of gates should always be right because when gates sag or are not aligned there is the possibility of malfunction. Make sure that gates are aligned always for proper operation. Check hinges and screws as loose screws and worn out hinges may cause the gates to become unaligned. A regular maintenance is necessary to ensure the efficient operation of gates and prolong its service life.
What happens if my gate hit something while it's in motion?
Most automatic gate openers are equipped with safety features and they are not designed to apply too much force to cause damage when it accidentally hits something. It would most probably stop moving and hit the reverse switch to move backwards.
