There’s no doubt that the Bedfordshire police are doing an exceptional job keeping crime rates down, despite having lost 8% of its officers over the last decade. However, Bedfordshire saw record numbers of vehicle theft in 2018, and the county is one of the top 3 areas for knife crime in the East. The police are requesting that homes and businesses across Bedfordshire support their work by taking what measures they can to keep their premises secure.

Do You Require Electric Gates Maintenance in Bedfordshire?

Once your gates are installed, they need to be regularly maintained. This ensures ongoing security for your property, safe usage for operators, and minimum risk of breakdown. 1st Choice can set up a maintenance and service agreement for your electric gates that covers the following areas:

  1. External Inspection. Looking at the condition of the driveway, the structural support for the gates and the general condition of the gates themselves.
  2. Gate Maintenance. Checks on the alignment of the gate, and its clearance capability. Grease and monitor the condition of hinges. Check efficiency of gate stops.
  3. Service Operators. Check for wear and tear, and inspect brackets, and fixings. Check clutch settings, bleed and top-up oil levels.
  4. Pressure Test. Check the performance of the gates by running the system a number of times. Check manual release and the locking performance.
  5. Electrics. Inspect electrics and check that RCD is installed. Check earthing termination and condition of all control equipment.
  6. Drainage. If you have undergate operators the drainage will need to be checked and any accumulated detritus removed.

Once the maintenance and service is complete, 1st Choice security engineers will submit a report which lists any repairs carried out, concerns, and recommendations for actions to be taken.
