When Sliding Gates Fail…

There are many benefits of installing sliding gates, they are especially convenient when space is limited but when they fail to work it can be difficult to enter or exit your property.  While it is rare for sliding gates to fail when maintenance and servicing packages are upheld as per the manufacturer’s guidelines, should they fail, as always, GateKraft are here to offer you potential solutions:

  • Ensure the automated system is receiving the right amount of power it needs to operate
  • Check whether a fuse has blown
  • Look to see if there are obstructions on the track or around the wheels
  • While unusual, particularly on newer systems, check the control board hasn’t burnt out following a power surge

Of course if once you’ve checked for these issues, none seem viable, get in touch with GateKraft on 01494 611 111. GateKraft are renowned across Buckinghamshire and surrounding counties for their excellence in designing, manufacturing, installing, as well as maintaining and servicing automated gates.
