Flooding and Hurricanes Can Damage Automatic Gate Operators
Modern gate openers and closers are designed to withstand normal weather conditions, including heavy rain and winds. Their housings are weather resistant and designed to keep water out and prevent damage to control circuits and mechanical components. However, hurricanes and flooding present extreme hazards to this ground-mounted equipment. No amount of weatherproofing can keep water out of cabinets that are submerged in fresh or salt water for any length of time. In hurricane and flood-prone states like Florida, Louisiana and Texas, every severe weather event can lead to failures in gate operator equipment for swinging, sliding and barrier gate installations at commercial and residential properties. In some cases, prompt action can return that equipment to proper operations, but replacement of this damaged equipment is usually required.
As the leading US direct-shipping supplier of security fencing products for residential, commercial and industrial applications, our company responds quickly to such emergencies with fast manufacturer-direct shipping of Linear and other gate operators for all applications. Our professional advisers can assist with selection of ideal replacement equipment and expedite your order to get your gate operating properly as soon as possible after the weather emergency or flooding is over. With outstanding low pricing due to our volume purchasing power, we’re your best choice when you need fast action and top-quality products for all automatic gate operations.
In cases where flooding is caused by fresh water, prompt action may prevent damage that requires equipment replacement. Salt water intrusion into operator cabinets, however, generally causes corrosive damage to circuit boards and electrical equipment, making replacement the only option. Our step-by-step guide for flooded equipment is designed to ensure safety and make recovery possible. Until systems are operational and safe or after new equipment has been installed, manual operation of gates will be required.
All of our security fencing products are individually selected to be the best equipment available, priced right, and ready for direct shipping from manufacturers. We offer a complete line-up of gate operators from Linear in all grades, from light duty residential to commercial and industrial grades. You’ll find automatic access control equipment for sliding, swinging, and barrier gates in every configuration. Our experts can also assist you in choosing appropriate openers and accessories to match your installation requirements.
