The starting point of low maintenance security gates is a high-quality gate installation. This way you are guaranteed to have high-quality parts and avoid the need for frequent electric gate repair associated with low-quality components. After that, your maintenance will look something like this:
Clean and wax – Your gate will need a quality wax once a year. This prevents the paint from peeling, flaking, and becoming damaged by environmental contaminants.
Clean the area around the gate – There are two things you need to watch out for: 1 – landscaping, 2 – pests. Overgrown landscaping can leave damaging debris. Pests, such as slugs, bees, and spiders, can deposit conductive materials or disrupt circuitry from nest building.
Lubricate all moving parts and components – This should be done quarterly. We recommend a lubricant, such as white lithium grease, not a water displacer or cleaner such as WD-40.
