Automated gates are a wonderful tool and accessory for any property. They help to secure perimeters, manage access and traffic flow, and can create a beautiful first impression for entrances. However, their ease of use and convenience can create a lost appreciation for their power and the responsibility that comes with installing one on your property. It is paramount that when selecting an automated gate installation service & repair company in Anaheim, you conduct thorough research into their qualifications and experience.
Automated gates, just like any other heavy and powerful equipment or machinery, can be dangerous. Education on the proper installation and appropriate use is critical. There are a few different ways to qualify an automated gate installation company. One way is to ask about the training and experience of their installation technicians. We fully recommend that you confirm the technicians have been certified and their credentials are up to date. Our own technicians have been certified through the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation (IDEA), which is the credentialing standard for established professional automated gate installers and dealers. Successfully completing this accreditation means a technician has an exceptional level of knowledge in both technical and management aspects. An IDEA certification is recognized industry-wide. We don’t stop there: education and training for our technicians continues, as technologies and safety standards continue to evolve, as well. When you enter into initial conversations with an installation company, be sure to also ask pointed questions about the knowledge of and adherence to UL325 safety standards.
Additionally, when you have a gate installed on your property, you will want it to last and continue to operate the same way it did on day one. Ensure the company you select for installation will also be able to help you maintain it through regular service appointments. We also recommend the same company is available for any emergency service you might require, whether that may be in the middle of the night, or on a weekend or holiday.
Though not always reliable to be indicative of experience or credibility, research into how long a company has been in operation. Scrutinize this information. Some automated gate installation companies are sold and purchased by new ownership, and then the new ownership will benefit from carrying the experience and reputation of the previous management without having earned it on their own. When given the choice, it is best to work with a company that has many years of experience on their team and deeply understands all aspects of automated gate installation.
