Condition and Safety Report

We can carry out a maintenance visit including healthcare check on your existing system. Provide you with a detailed report on its current condition and what if anything, needs to be done to ensure it complies with the latest safety requirements. Any minor adjustments found to be needed can be made during this visit. We will also provide recommendations for any work that needs carrying out to bring the system to an acceptable, safe standard.

LCS Gates & Barriers Ltd can offer call outs to your system and complete onsite repairs in most instances. We are proud to say that in 90% of call outs completed we get the system back up and running. If that isn’t possible, we then provide estimates for repairs and of course any safety requirements.

Regular Maintenance Visits

Depending on the amount of use your automatic gates, we can devise a maintenance scheme to keep your system working safely and reliably year after year. Under current safety requirements all safety devices fitted to the system must be tested by a competent person on a six-monthly basis, to ensure they are working correctly. Electric gate maintenance should include, but not be limited to the following items.

  • Cleaning out of foundation boxes and enclosures

  • Lubrication of all pivot points and friction areas

  • Testing of all safety devices installed

  • Electrical testing of motors and underground loops

  • Checking of cable connections and tidying of control box

  • Checking all wear items such as hinges and rollers for wear

  • Structural checks

  • General condition

Leaving your automatic gate system without maintaining it can cause premature failure. And in a worst-case scenario, failure and potential injury to users.

Maintenance is especially recommended in systems with underground operators as they are prone to filling with water and debris. If not cleaned out regularly the foundation boxes become can corrode and then fail. Replacement of these foundation boxes is an expensive job as it often requires the driveway to be excavated.
