Gate Automation Servicing

If you are in need of electric gate servicing please get in touch.
Electric Gates should be serviced at least once a year, to ensure a long service life.


We recommend operating your gate manual release at least once every 6 months, to ensure it does not seize, especially if you have underground motors! (Information Below).

Gate Automation System Repairs

If your gates are powered by Genius, FAAC, Casali, CAME or BFT then we can repair them for you. We also repair other brands.
All repairs will be subject to a risk assessment to ensure they are compliant with current

Gate Manual Release Information


  • All electric gates are fitted with a manual release.

  • This manual release will allow you to open the gate if the automation ever fails / there is a power cut or emergency.

  • When you operate the manual release it is important you return the gate to its original position before operation of the manual release.

  • All manual releases should be operated at least once every 6 months to ensure continued operation. (It only takes 2 minutes).

    Types of Manual Release:


  • If you gate has Ram bolted to the gate, the manual release should be located on the top of the motor, this will either need a key or an allen key to operate.

    Articulated Arm

  • If you gate has the motor bolted to the wall & attached to the gate via an arm, the manual release is located on the underside of the motor near the swing arm (look for a cam)

     Underground Motors

  • If you have underground motors the manual release is often located on the underside of the gate near the bottom hinge. You will need either a key or a gas service key to operate it. Please check these regularly, failure to do so often results on them seizing!

  • All underground systems we install are manufactured by FAAC. The manual releace is operated by pulling on the black tabs, so they open @ 90 Degrees to the gate.
    If they do not move please check they are not locked. 

  • If you cannot operate the manual release by hand please give us a call. Excessive force using tools can lead to damage & a expensive repair if the correct procedure is not followed.
