Automatic Gate Service

        When it comes to automatic gates, there is no substitute for using a Certified Automated Gate Operator Installer.  There is a big difference between just automating a gate and creating a reliable, lasting, and safe automated gate system. "The gate operator installer’s knowledge is an essential element of a safe and properly working automated gate system. The Institute of Door Dealers Education and Accreditation (IDEA) has worked with the American Fence Association (AFA), and the Door & Access Systems Manufacturers Association (DASMA) to establish a program to validate the credentials of individuals who have the experience and skills in the installation and servicing of automated gate systems."  Ensure that your gate system complies with UL325 Standards as well as ASTM F-2200 Standards to help prevent accidents with pedestrians and protect yourself and your gate system.

        Fortified Services ensures that your gate system is installed properly.  Taking into consideration the use of conduits, the proper depth for concrete footers, and proper welding and wiring procedures are all important when installing a long-lasting automated gate system.  Also making sure the equipment being used is properly rated for the site conditions is equally important for installing a long-lasting system.
