Gate Servicing

At GateSmart, we advise that regular automated gate services are conducted. There are various guidelines regarding how regularly electric gates should be serviced based on usage; any experienced installation company should ensure a service contract is offered and also provide an estimation of the usage of your gates.

In general, manufacturers will recommend the following service guidelines based on usage:
