Gate Motor Motor New York

Attempting to open up rolling steel door in New York New York which is not motor driven using the chain or a manual (chain mechanism or (“push-to-open”) open metal door can be a nightmare. The winter months in New York City are when we get the most calls for automatic roll-doors installment and repairs. And the reason is that using the metal chain to open up or close as roll-up garage gate can become impossible. Some people mistakenly assume that it is better to install the roll-door, and in the future to add the electric “automatic-operator”. Although that in some cases they might be right, it is not always like that. The installment of automatic roll down gate is different than the installment of manual (chain mechanism or (“push-to-open”) one, which will be operated manually (chain mechanism or (“push-to-open”). If the gate will be connected to a motor, the spring we will use on a push up roll down gate might be different from the spring we will be using for a roll-door in New York City which will be connected to electric motor in the future. Also in terms of costs: Installing the “automatic-operator” at the same time as installing the roll-up garage gate itself will cost less than to do the “automatic-operator” installment in two parts.

Which roll-up garage gate “automatic-operator” to install?

Each rolling metal door in New York City require different type of “automatic-operator”. No one will expect a center “automatic-operator” for a push up gate in NYC which is being used once or twice, to fit a store roll up gate in Brooklyn which is being used 100 times a day or more. The “automatic-operator” simply won’t last for long. Each gate require a different “automatic-operator”, and a qualified roll-up garage gates installation expert in New York City should be able to determine which one is the best operator for a specific metal door. The size of the roll-door (and the material the gate was made of – affect the weight of the curtain), make the difference between the different “automatic-operator”. Before installing new operator for a garage gate in New York City, here are few things you should ask or tell the installation expert:

Why the roll-up garage gate “automatic-operator” got jammed?

Before we try to answer the question what is the reason the roll-door “automatic-operator” got jammed, we first like to tell you that even if it look seem as it is the door’s “automatic-operator” that can’t open up the gate, it does not mean that there is something wrong with the “automatic-operator”, You would be surprised to learn how many calls we get from store and businesses owners who tell us that the operator is now working, and when we arrive and inspect the door, we find that the “automatic-operator” is fine, and what broke is actually another part of the store door.

It can be a roll-up garage gate in NYC, or garage door repair in Brooklyn NY, you need the services of a professional gate service provider to solve the problem by repairing the door.

  • If the garage gate does not operate properly when it is being used manually (chain mechanism or (“push-to-open”), hire a local service provider in New York City to repair it before adding and setting up a new gate “automatic-operator”. Installing new “automatic-operator” will not make the garage gate work if there was a problem prior to the new “automatic-operator” set up. If the spring is weak, or if it has been a long time since someone greased the gate, you will need to take care of the problems first. You have to make sure that the shutter can operate normally when it is in manual (chain mechanism or (“push-to-open”) mode. If it shows any signs of malfunctions, if it is suddenly difficult to open up the gate, if the slats are damaged, or if there are broken parts that need to be replaced, all those malfunctions are not going to disappear when you install the new operator. And you can even burn the new “automatic-operator” you recently set up.
  • The cheap poor quality “automatic-operators” will turn into the most expensive since they do not last for long. Using an electric “automatic-operator” which is not the right “automatic-operator” for the gate is literally a waste of money, and can even be dangerous. Never use “automatic-operator” which is not specified by the manufacturer of the roll-door! Trying to save money by using the wrong “automatic-operator” usually end with spending much more in the future. When you invest in quality roll down gate operator you might be investing more money at the moment, but you will be saving a lot of money in the future when you will have a perfectly operating automatic garage gate.
