Read on for our top tips on automatic gate maintenance.

Signs your Sydney automatic gate needs a service

Depending on the type of gate you have there are different components you should keep an eye on. Then there are a few DIY maintenance tips to keep your automatic gate in the best condition.


Listen for noise such as grinding, banging or squealing coming from your motor.


Remote or stop-close failures could be a sign of a loose wire in the ‘brains’ of your automatic gate.


Vehicle impacts can throw off the alignment of your Sydney automatic gate; get in touch right away if your gate is not running true.


Check the rollers for damage and obstructions regularly, and proactively address rust spots.


When a pest invades the motor, they can chew through wires or cause electrical faults.


If you lose or break a remote you may not be able to use your gate, and we will need to re-code a new remote.

General wear & tear

Keep your gate clean and the area around it free from leaf build-up, excess water and overgrown weeds for less fault risk.
