Every property, be it a business or a residential complex, requires some level or security from the unauthorized entry of people and animals. Swing gates are a popular choice when it comes to safety, reliability and functionality to a large drive way, as they use very little horizontal space when compared to slide gates. If your property drive way lacks the width but is blessed with the length, than the swing gate is the right choice (if you are looking for a new Swing Gate Installation), as it will swing open from the center without taking any more space than the actual width of the drive way, thus giving you the flexibility to still enjoy the safe access with the limited side clearance. The downside to having swing gates is that you must keep a specified distance between the gate and your vehicle when you enter/exit the property for.
These types of gates, whether it’s a slide or a swing, are often motorized and very rarely maintained due to people’s busy schedules and a lack of knowledge in general maintenance. Neglect for maintenance can lead to problems such as rust, wear and tear, cracks and bends, misalignment, motor issues and more. Let’s not forget human error as well, as no one is perfect and sometimes accidents do happen, and when they do, we are here to help. Swing gates do come with various options, such as photo eyes, keypads, remote access, intercom systems, and therefore labeling every swing gate different, so your personal gate issues may vary.
With 24/7 response time, our team of knowledgeable Swing Gate Repair technicians are standing by to help you repair or replace your swing gate. Give us a call or fill out our form for more information on how Angel Garage Door Repair and Gate can help your with your Swing Gate problem.
Slide Gates come in various designs and lengths. These types of gates are usually a solid piece, and often manufactured from Steel, Wood, Aluminum, or sometimes Vinyl. They are distinctive gates as they only operate by sliding either left or right direction, depending on the property driveway. Slide Gates are a great choice for a property that is very limited on entrance area, but does have horizontal range to accommodate the width of the gate. However, these are extreme cases, and should not be used to discourage your decision when it comes to New Gate Installation. Both Slide and Swing Gates can be accommodated on properties that are not lacking either width or length, it than becomes more on aesthetics, functionality, the display of the entrance, and personal preference.
Slide Gates are operated by either hand or a motorized unit, and sit on 2 to 4 wheels depending on the weight and track of the gate. Industrial, more heavy duty gates do use the dual wheels. Motorized gates are often equipped with safety sensors, safety loops, and operated via remote control. These parts are considered moving parts, and they do require annual maintenance or the user will run the risk of failure and breakage of parts that can lead to more serious problems and accidents. Aside from moving parts, some slide gates are equipped with optional intercom systems, such as; keypads, telecom systems, video cameras, card readers and more. All of these electronic parts do have a life span, and will require replacement parts/maintenance.
If you are having issues with your Slide Gate, do not hesitate to give us a call, and we will send our Slide Gate Repair technician of an evaluation and consultation on repairs.
Unlike the Slide or Swing Gate, Overhead Gates are usually designed to mimic the garage door. They are often installed on underground parking lots, such as apartment buildings, businesses, or storage facilities. These Overhead Gates are considered a great choice for a public access location, as these gates offer great security with minimal privacy. Overhead Gates are very similar to One Piece Garage Doors system when it comes to functionality, however they are different when it comes to parts, as springs, tracks, openers, rollers are often heavy duty and maybe considered to be commercial grade. Although some Overhead Gates do use similar parts, they may not be the right choice, so it’s best to call a professional when you have any Overhead Gate issues.
These gates are often equipped with safety loops and exit loops for added safety when entering and exiting the property, these loops are embedded into the cement to work in conjunction with the opener to control the safety motion on the overhead gate. They are often manufactured from galvanized steel and to mimic a gate, but can always be customized if needed visual accessories. Do keep in mind, even though these gates are a very simple design, and most loads is on the spring, roller, and openers, you may still need maintenance on the gate itself and anything that is electronic or motorized, as the weather and human error may cause damage which will drastically reduce the security of the place which you are trying to keep safe.
If any issues or problems occur with your Overhead Gate, give Angel Garage Door Repair and Gate a call 24/7 to schedule an appointment with one of our Gate Repair Technicians.
Having an outdoor display for your business products is great way to increase sales by attracting passing by foot traffic. However, your product may also attract unwanted attention from those that wish to harm your valuable assets. This is why the Storefront Gate was invented. It adds a ‘blanket’ of security to the building when it is unattended at night or day. It is a rather simple system, which completely covers the front entrance of the building from one side to the other. It is virtually impenetrable to the human and animal limbs, which makes it a great security option for your business.
These types of gates do come in many different shapes and designs, and are often manufactured from the same materials, such as steel and aluminum. They often sit on a steel box track, which holds the rollers on which the gate travels when it is pulled by the user while the gate itself expands the accordion like bars, forming a ‘steel net’ around the exposed property. Even though they are designed to last and withstand heavy abuse, they can still malfunction due to the fact that these gates are moving objects, and they do require general maintenance and some times repairs, do to misuse, weather damage or human error.
The most common issues with these gates are: jammed bars, jammed rollers, debris on track, bent bars and rust. If you have any issues with your Storefront Gate or you are interested in new Storefront Gate Installation, please give us a call 24/7 at (877) 616-7770.

Safety Loops are used by swing, slide and sometimes overhead gates. These loops are installed underground, 3-5 feet before the opening, both on the entrance and exit parts of the gate. They are installed as preventative system to avoid accidents during the gate operational period. These loops are connected through a loop detector which is usually built in to the opener itself. Although the wires are virtually indestructible once correctly placed in to the ground, they can still be damaged throughout the years by natural events such as earthquakes, sinkholes, mudslides, and human error. Also, independent loop detectors may also become faulty as they are electronic. Give Angel Garage Door Repair and Gate a call for more information about Safety Loop Gate repair and installation.
