Automated Gates Overview

American Access Company is a division of American Fence Company. American Access Company installs thousands of automatic gates, gate operators, and access control systems each year. Following expert installation, American Access Company also provides maintenance and repair to automated gates, gate opener operators, and all access control components.

Automated Gate System Installation

Modern gate operators are not able to function completely on their own. Each automatic gate system will require at least five different gate entry control devices for your automatic gate system. A combination of the following products is needed for a complete automated gate system:

  • Keypads
  • Proximity readers
  • Photoeyes
  • Contact edges
  • Card readers
  • Photoelectric through beams
  • Ground loops and wands

American Access Company provides all of the premier names in the gate opener and access control business, including: LiftMasterLinearDoorking and HySecurity. Annually, we work with these major brands to incorporate new products, along with safety and installation training with our already experienced crew.

Automated Gate System Maintenance & Repair

Gate repair is one of the most important services we offer, and we are proud to have such a skilled crew that is more than capable of repairing even the oldest or most obscure electric gate system. To repair these gate operators, you will need a company that has factory trained technicians who understand not only the mechanics but the electronics as well. American Access Company’s technicians participate in manufacturer training on the latest equipment each year.

To ensure the long, healthy life of your automatic gate, you need to perform maintenance on it at least once a year. One of the few things that should be done is the gate chain should be cleaned, tensioned and greased. American Access Company provides a complete maintenance and service program through our service agreement or whenever you call. We will conduct an annual compliance check for proper maintenance and safety. Common features we inspect and adjust during these appointments include:

  • Chain rollers
  • Chains
  • Trucks
  • Guides
  • All moving components
