Security Gate Performance
- Maintain Gate Cleanliness
Keeping your gate clean reduces wear and tear over time and ensures that it functions properly and reliably. While metal gates are commonly utilized by businesses due to their durability and overall strength, exposure to the elements eventually causes deterioration of the hinges, gears, and gate bars. Failure to maintain the cleanliness of your roll-up gate may likewise contribute to the development of rust and mechanical wear. This is both visually unappealing for your business and may pose a security hazard by increasing the risk of successful break-ins. As such, it is extremely important to maintain your gate’s cleanliness. Cleaning methods may vary depending on the material and design of your gate. However, soap and water—in addition to citric acid, vinegar, or store-bought rust removers—may be used. Adding a fresh coat of paint afterward may also increase your gate’s resistance to the elements.
- Maintain Gate Lubrication
Whether you own a manual or automatic gate, maintaining adequate lubrication of the gears and hinges is critical. By optimizing the functioning of your gate’s various components with lubrication, you slow abrasive wear and ensure that it can operate with ease. This also helps maintain your gate’s overall strength, which is a crucial component of protecting your business from unwanted intruders.
