Electric Gate Repairs and Maintenance
Your Security is a Serious Matter
Electra Controls Repairs takes your security seriously. That is why we offer fast and efficient electric gate repairs & maintenance service throughout Greater London and the Home Counties. We understand the importance of your security and how you are exposed when your gates are not working.
Although we advocate regular gate maintenance, gates do break down or get damaged. That’s when we are at our best. Our prompt arrival at a scheduled appointment will give you peace of mind. Of course, we are sometimes challenged by traffic and weather conditions but we target our response times within the following guidelines:
Immediate response (within four hours)
24-hour response (urgent repairs)
48 hours response (i.e, non-urgent repairs)
Preventative Maintenance to Protect Your Property
Prevention is better than cure. Reasonable gate maintenance agreements are available for all types of installation and maintenance of electric gates. Residential and Commercial properties receive equal importance, whether they have been installed by us or not.
All systems require some form of maintenance depending on the level of usage and conditions. Scheduled checking of safety features like the anti-crush device is of paramount importance. As is the electrical integrity and the smooth running of the system. Hinges will require lubrication. Oil levels will require checking and changing where necessary and regular maintenance is always cheaper than electric gate repairs work.
We conduct a visual inspection of all fixings and electrical equipment including light switches (if included) and their connections. We then conduct a general check for water ingress, and we check and lubricate the manual release device to ensure the complete system works correctly. This type of gate maintenance should be carried out at regular intervals depending on the volume of use. Doing so will prolong the operational life of the electric gate and ensure that the installation remains in good operative order. Additionally, it will give us a good indication of any potential problems before they become a major. You can count on our professionals to address all of your maintenance and repair needs anywhere in Greater London and in any of the Home Counties. We will attend outside these areas subject to availability.
With New Health and Safety Directive in force, all automatic gates must be “FORCE TESTED” to comply with current legislation.
Please contact us for a written quotation, in order to keep your gates in good operative order and to comply with health and safety requirements.
S.S.R – Site, Survey, and Repair
This service calls for us to visit your property to carry out a SITE SURVEY. Here we can view the problem to establish what it is that needs attention. On most occasions, we can carry out the repair while we are there. However, if the repair is more involved and needs replacement parts, we will complete the survey and either quote you’re there and then or send you a comprehensive report and for completing and repairing the issue.
Give us a call on 020 8440 2777 and quote S.S.R for more information and a quotation.
