Automatic Gate Service and Maintenance

Gate Automation has been a huge topic of concern in Ireland over the last few years. The Gate Safety regulations have not been met in almost 80% of commercial gates.

This has resulted in numerous accidents and even fatalities over something so simple yet powerful.


At Electro we always advise clients to take out a gate maintenance contract, not only does it absolve you of liability of something were to happen due to the condition of the gate it also allows you to focus on the more important aspects of your business.


Our team of trained service engineers are accredited by the PSA, DHF and ADSA allowing us to carry out work on all types of commercial and residential sites in Ireland. The team at Electro offer customers detailed reports on services, industry leading response times and quality while our engineers are on site.


An unmaintained gate or one that doesn't meet the safety standards as set out by the HSA can result in fines if inspected and more seriously accidents could occur on your premises. Gates in general are heavy, commercial gates can easily weigh 200kg, the motor alongside it will keep moving, keep pushing regardless of what’s in the way. Without the proper safety equipment that gate will crush whatever happens to be in its path.


Electro advise all customers to conduct a risk assessment on all automated equipment and to be extra careful on the automated gate one. Our team are there to assist should you want any further information on the latest gate safety laws, or have a read through our blog post on the issue - Gate Safety, how will it affect me.


Along with the obvious safety issues there is the issue of the motor becoming damaged or over used, a vehicle pushing the gate off its tracks and several other incidents that would require an automation service engineer to repair. Contact our team to get a maintenance contract quote, our team will work with your budget and requirements to ensure you can focus on other areas of the business.
