Are automatic electric gates safe?
Yes. There are several safety and regulatory guidelines laid out by different governmental departments to ensure that residential automatic gates are safe for users. Moreover, all gate companies ensure that such guidelines are followed during installation, repair, and maintenance work. So, there’s no need to worry.

What kind of locks should I use for my gates?
Deadbolts, combination locks, or even basic latch padlocks work for gates, but the important thing to remember is that they should be rust proof. Gates are often exposed to the elements, and rusty gate locks can be a really big problem.
How wide should gate bottom clearance be?
Bottom clearance for most swing gates can be from 3 inches to 6 inches. However, most gate experts consider a range of 4 to 5 inches as the optimal clearance space when aesthetics is the main concern. The clearance should be discussed with the gate contractor to sort out practicality and appearance priorities before a new gate installation is undertaken.
My gate makes loud screeching sounds, what does this mean?
That means that the hinges or other moving parts are drying up and require lubrication. This can easily be fixed by applying a lubricant. However, make sure you use the proper lubricating agent as other lubricating oils tend to build-up dirt over time and cause damage.
Why are gate accidents common with pedestrians?
Driving lanes are located adjacent to pedestrian walkways. The in-ground control loops are only able to detect metal and not a walking pedestrian. Ideally pedestrians should keep away from traffic lanes and watch out for opening or closing gates
