Gate Intercom Installation
Customer Issue: Mr. Nelson wanted to make his driveway gate more secure with an intercom.
Our Solution: We helped our customer choose the advanced AiPhone JK-Series video intercom system for access control and installed it to work with his sliding gate and opener.
Reversing Gate Repair
Customer Issue: The sliding gate went forward and then reversed, while the opener was working normally.
Our Solution: We inspected the hardware carefully, found a broken wheel bearing and replaced it with a new one of the same diameter and thickness.
Doorking Opener Repair
Customer Issue: The DoorKing 6100 swing gate opener was noisy and did not work smoothly.
Our Solution: After opening the cover, we inspected the components closely and found plastic shavings under the rim gear indicating it was misaligned. We adjusted it accurately and greased the housing below the gear assembly for optimal performance.
Customer Issue: There was too much slack in the driveway gate chain, despite it being fully tightened.
Our Solution: We removed three links to reset the tensioners and then tensioned the chain to give it the slight sag required for normal automatic gate operation.
Gate Intercom Repair
Customer Issue: The DoorKing 1802-EPD intercom had failed completely.
Our Solution: The intercom didn’t receive power and our test with the voltmeter showed the power adapter was damaged, so we replaced it with a new one matching the system’s specs.
Liftmaster Opener Repair
Customer Issue: The opener wasn’t working as fast as usual and was making strange noises.
Our Solution: Our test revealed that the V-belt of the LiftMaster RSW12U swing gate opener was loose and cracked, so we replaced it with a new one having the same specs.
Gate Won't Close
Customer Issue: The sliding gate traveled a few inches and then stopped.
Our Solution: Since the motor was working normally, we inspected the hardware and revealed the track was bent. We straightened it, so that the wheels could pass freely.
New Gate Installation
Customer Issue: Ms. Mitchell had her mind set on a steel swing gate with a bell curve design and black powder coat finish.
Our Solution: Our measurements confirmed that a 12-foot gate would be a perfect fit. We installed it, securing the posts and using heavy-duty hinges.
DKS Opener Installation
Customer Issue: Mr. Brown wanted a reliable sliding gate opener from a reputable brand.
Our Solution: Based on our advice, the customer chose a DKS 9024 opener. We installed the motor unit, added the hardware and connected it to the gate. The programming of the controls took little time.
Gate Stuck Open
Customer Issue: The gate would not close with the remote control.
Our Solution: Our close inspection and testing revealed that the sliding gate safety sensors had failed, so we replaced them with a new FAAC 785152 set and cleared the area around them a bit to prevent blocking.
Swing Gate Repair
Customer Issue: The swing gate’s panels were uneven and were making strange noises during opening and closing.
Our Solution: We inspected the gate and found that the hinges were damaged. After repairing the welding, we tightened the bolts and applied grease for smooth performance.
