Electric gates operate through motion of a mechanized arm that opens and closes your automatic gates through signals sent from remote controls or keypads. They often contain safety features like automatic direction reversal or hold modes – operating according to the same principals as garage openers. Electric gate openers are also available in either pad-mounted, heavy duty arm forms, or more light weight linear arm forms – and are scaled at different power levels for different sizes and weights of gates. They are available in mechanical or (the rarer) hydraulic varieties – with most residential locations opting for mechanical gates. The expert team at Metro GDS Inc Gates & Garage Door will help you determine exactly what type of electric gate is ideal for your location and fully install it in a matter of minutes. Or, on the other hand, if your electric gate is suffering misalignment, dragging, twisting, flexing, or any other mechanical issue, our technicians can seamlessly repair them in a fully courteous and efficient manner – and always at a competitive flat rate.
