General Gate FAQs

The following section will provide answers to the most common questions that you encounter when it comes to your residential gateway, its repair, and maintenance. These are written by our skilled technicians who have years of experience in the field.

Do the solar panels of gate openers require maintenance?

Yes, they do need proper care. The good news is that it involves only cleaning. You can remove the dust and dirt on the panel using a soft dry cloth. If the manufacturer permits, a window cleaner can be applied for better results. Just make sure that it is safe. Usually, cleaning is required annually, but if you live in an area with high winds and/or a lot of dust, you should do it more often.

What kind of wire do safety loop sensors need?

There is loop wire especially designed for the purpose. It has impermeable insulation which protects it from all kinds of damage and from water damage, in particular. Recently, manufacturers have started to produce thinner loop wire which is easier to install in the slots made in the asphalt. It is worth noting that safety loop sensors should be installed on both sides of the sliding gate.
