Swing GateBack To Our Services
When people begin to look for different ways to add safety and security to their property, they typically will go to such options as a security alarm, video cameras or even a dog. Another larger option would be to install a gate on the property. The gate would have a fence attached and would surround the entire property. One type of gate that is traditionally used is a swing gate. A swing gate does just as its name implies; it will swing open to allow entry onto the property and it will swing closed once entry has been granted. There are a few ways access is granted. A operator can be there on scene to open and close the gate or an entry system of some sort can be used.
For a swing gate that does not have an operator on site
the gate will run on safety loops sensors. These sensors are activated and the gate will open. The gate is attached to hinges. These hinges are what give the gate its swing effect. There are typically three different types of entry systems that do not require the use of an operator. These systems are a keypad entry system, a phone entry system and a remote control.
Over time, a swing gate will be exposed to weather and the elements. These will cause the gate and the fence to begin to wear down. Once this begins to happen, a Sherman Oaks swing gate repair person can come out to look over the gate and the fence. Sometimes all that will be required will be a Sherman Oaks swing adjustment. This will mean that they fix some rust that has occurred or tighten some parts that have become loose over time.
More serious issues to the swing gate would be structural in nature. If the gate itself is damaged or if the structure of the fence is damaged, the whole gate will be thrown off and may not work properly. A Sherman Oaks post repair will need to be done if the fence posts are broken or rotting. When the fence has damage, the whole purpose of the fence is no longer there. The reason for a fence is to add an element of safety and security to the property. When damage is seen on the property, that sense of safety and security is gone.
