Practical ideas about gate repair! Smart tips to keep them in outstanding condition!
Choose materials according to use
It's different choosing a gate for your house and another story selecting for your store. For residential use you can choose wood or wrought iron gates with rails but for commercial use Gate Repair New York City would recommend strong materials best made of galvanized or stainless steel.
Check the storefront gate springs often
It's crucial to check the entire automatic roll up often but giving attention and priority to springs is important. Your storefront gate will work much better if the springs are adjusted, lubricated and replaced before they get to the breaking point. It's also the safest way to prevent injuries.
Gate that fit homes with a shorter driveway
Our professionals state that a sliding gate is the best fit for properties that have limited driveway space. Using a swing gate is not an appropriate choice because it may use up to almost half of your driveway space while opening.
Use the right lubrication
When lubricating swing gate hinges or other moving parts of other types of gates, the sliding gate rollers for example, use the right substance. Avoid grease or used motor oil. The recommended lubricating supply is silicon spray. Other substances tend to collect dust and dirt that only cause problems that may require professional cleaning or maintenance service.
Check the emergency release every now and then
You should check the manual disconnect or emergency release buttons often in case of a power outage. If there’s a problem, give us a call.
