"Security in Every Job" Since 1955

How Can I Make Sure That My Gate Works In The Winter?

gateWhether you are the manager of security for a gated community or you are a homeowner who has a gate integrated into your ornamental or privacy fence, it is important to know that winter weather will not affect your gate’s operation. Hercules Fence of Virginia Beach knows that no matter what the temperature is or if there is snow falling, keeping your gates in working order is vital.

It is fairly simple to ensure that your gate continues to work properly into the winter. If your gate is a residential gate, it is likely that it operates only with a latch and metal hinges. Check on the hinges periodically, especially after there has been winter precipitation, such as ice and snow, to make sure that they are not stiff or difficult to move. Oiling a hinge that is not working properly should encourage it to operate as usual.

If your gate is the gate to a community and operates on an electronic system, then you should perform regular tests of the system to ensure no one will be locked out in the cold. Electronic systems are not necessarily more susceptible to damage in cold weather, but it is never a convenient time of year for them to stop working, so be aware of any faults! Keeping your gate functional means keeping the residents in your community happy and safe.
