Ensure your automatic gates, barriers or bollards are regularly tested and routinely serviced to guarantee the efficient working order of your system

Regular testing and servicing of your automatic gates, barriers or bollards will enable the system to work to its full capacity, securing the entrance to your property. It will also reduce any faults in your structure.

Annual Automation maintenance packages

In order to have your automated access inspected and tested annually, we can provide you with a maintenance contract. The benefit to this is routine testing is done without thought or hassle, confirming that your system is always performing to its full capacity. It may alert the engineer to potential issues with your system which can be solved before encountering any issues.

As a contract customer, you are also guaranteed a response to an emergency call within 5 hours.

On signing a maintenance agreement, an engineer will visit your property to inspect and test your system. All of our engineers are qualified to full standards and will ensure that you will not encounter any disturbance to the operating of your system while this takes place within a brief timeframe.

Maintenance contracts are reviewed annually for your convenience. After each term, you will have the opportunity to review it before deciding on the year ahead. You will never be bound to this contract after such period if for any reason it no longer meets your requirements.
