In a nutshell, we don't just install fences. We can build and install gates, operators, and all the access control accessories as well. We use Liftmaster caliber or higher products for most access control items. We love to use solar power when able. Click the button for more pictures.
Gates and operators are no longer just a thing for the wealthy. It’s now more affordable than ever to secure your property with an automated driveway gate and gate operator. Whether it’s a swinging gate or sliding gate, we got you covered. Whether it’s a wrought iron gate, chain link gate, wood gate, farm gate, or something else, we can install it. There are many options with gate operator systems but we prefer to use Liftmaster products as much as possible. They are reliable, offer excellent support, long lasting, and very user friendly.
There are many accessories when it comes to access control. Some of them are required if for egress or commercial purposes such as a 911 box for emergency access and free exit loops so the gate opens automatically when you are exiting the property. Some of them are for convenience only such as keypads, remotes, and fancy code and card entry systems. Our favorite feature is the Liftmaster MyQ technology. Using an app on your smartphone, tablet, or computer you can check the status of your gate, and give it commands to open or close from anywhere in the world (assuming of course the device you are using has network signal). The way it works is you connect the MyQ gateway device to your modem and from there the gateway device communicates directly with the gate operators. As long as your modem is 300 feet or closer to the operator it should work smoothly. It’s very simple to install and use and is great if you are not home for an Amazon delivery and want to provide temporary access.
We try to take advantage of solar power every opportunity we get. If your gate is in a location or near to a location with good sun exposure, it is easy to connect a 20 watt solar panel and keep your operator running seamlessly for an average of 20 plus cycles per day with average amount of sunlight. Running electrical wiring and conduit can turn into an extra costly expense, especially if the gate is a long distance away from the nearest power source. Most gate operators run directly off trickle charge batteries or have battery back-up if you are connected to direct power and the power goes out. Liftmaster operators are pretty maintenance free. Every few years you will need to replace the batteries with new ones but it is affordable and recommended so that there is no damage done to the operator.
