Swing gates are typically a more cost-efficient option as compared to sliding and telescopic gates. However, they require a larger space as the gates open inward.
A common problem faced by property owners with this type of gate is the inability to open the gate fully.
Sliding gates are ideal for properties where space is limited.
Servicing and repair are necessary for this type of gate when derailment or misalignment occurs.
It is also necessary to contact a professional to replace the rollers as they will experience wear and tear over time.
Telescopic gates are a type of sliding gate. They have 2 or more panels and each panel is stacked in front of the other when opening.
Rocks and other forms of debris that get stuck on the track could prevent the gate from opening or closing fully.
Misalignment and derailment are also common problems.
Limit switches will control how far your automatic gate opens or closes. When the gate has reached the open or close limit, it will stop moving. However, when the settings are faulty and your gate fails to hit the limit, your gate may open or close on its own.
Interferences with your gate’s remote control frequency can cause it to open or close on its own. Additionally, identical frequencies can mean that another person’s remote also controls your automatic gate.
While uncommon, a motherboard malfunction can cause your auto gate to open by itself. This may occur regardless of whether your motherboard is old or new.
