 FAQ – What will I need to do?
Preparing your site for automatic gates

All automatic gates require an isolation switch or switchable weather proof power point close to or in clear view of the motors and/or control box.
Regardless of what you may have been told, even from experienced electricians, who should know better, it is illegal to hard wire automatic gate equipment directly into a mains electrical supply, there are a number of regulations involved, for electrical and mechanical safety.
For double swing gates you will need a power point on one side of the driveway only and at least one conduit across the driveway to the other side.
Single swing gate require one power point at the hinge side.
Sliding motors need a power point next to the motor, generally on the post that holds the gate in position.

Service, Repairs and Maintenance

We can service and repair most common brands of gate automation equipment or replace, if necessary, with similar or better.
Ants, in Australia are one of the most common cause’s of electronic circuit board failure within automatic gate control units.
Most sliding gate motors have control units built in and if it’s over 10 years old you would most likely need to replace the whole motor as it could be uneconomical to repair.
Swing gate motors usually have a separate control unit mounted on a wall next to the driveway, these can be easily replaced without replacing the motors if they are still OK.
If you require repairs to and existing automatic gate, it would be helpful if you can tell us what brand the system is as we may have the parts you’re looking for without needing a return visit.

Common Errors /
Bad News

Most setups should last 10 to 15 years or more if they have been installed correctly, others may not even last past the warranty period, in this situation, the problem should be fixed for free by the contractor who installed it but we are called in because they either can’t be contacted or they have no idea how to fix the problem.
Issues are mostly due to poor execution. Bad and/or dangerous wiring is the most alarming concern uncovered when we arrive on some of these sites.
We have collected a few photos during our travels and have decided to share them by creating a “Common Errors” gallery for your information on what you can and should avoid.
