Answers to 5 Questions About Auto Gate Systems for Singapore Properties

Real Estate

An auto gate in your Singapore home is one factor that can amp up the value of your property. Here are four common questions and doubts about automatic gates.

#1 How does gate maintenance work? 

It is best to conduct regular auto gate maintenance and repair for your Singapore property. It is a crucial aspect of keeping your gate secure. The work is critical to keep the gate’s inner mechanics clean and greased at all times for three reasons:

  • Prevent future breakups
  • Detect an issue and resolve it as soon as possible to avoid costly repairs.
  • Avoid unpleasant situations in the home due to a component malfunction, such as photocells.

#2 How many types are there?

There are two types of auto gate options for Singapore homes: swing and sliding. Swing gates have two leaves that open by rotating on a pivot. Sliding gates feature a moveable section on a horizontally laid grid on the ground. It is the ideal choice for residences with restricted square footage.

#3 How many motor options do I have?

Four motor types can power the auto gate of your Singapore property: linear, articulated, hydraulic and underground. Linear motors provide high speed and medium-high thrust capabilities. On the other hand, swing gates often use articulated mechanisms. Hydraulic motors are often the most affordable, but they give outstanding performance with a short opening time. You can distinguish underground types by their sturdiness and inconspicuous look, which allows them to be nearly undetectable.

#4 What should I do in case of a power failure?

No worries, each gate comes with a specific key for manual opening in the event of a breakdown or a power outage. Opening your gate is quick and efficient. Furthermore, some gate types also have a motor with several hours of autonomy. It continues to work even on power outages.
