Brooklyn Rolling Gate Motor
The cold winters in Brooklyn can get tough. And to operate a commercial rolling gate which is not motorized using the chain system can turn into a nightmare when the temperatures drop. Winter months are the months we get the most emergency calls for rollup gate motor services, repairs and installations. And the reason is that using the freezing steel chain to open or close the gate, or to push up a heavy rolling gate can become impossible. Although it is better to install the motor at the same time when you install the rolling gate, many business owners in Brooklyn NY assume that it is better to install the rolling gate first, and in the future to add the electric motor. In some new rolling steel doors set ups they might be right, but it is not always like that. The installment of a motor-driven gate is different than the installation of rollup gate or rolling door which will be operated manually. And it is always better to plan ahead. So if you are thinking about make your rolling gate in Brooklyn motor-driven one, let the installer know that, so he can make the preparations and set up for you a roll up gate that can be motorized in the driven.
Which gate motor should be used?
Each gate require different motor. No one will expect a central motor for a push gate which is being used once a day in Brooklyn, to fit a parking lot rolling gate in Brooklyn which is being used 100 times a day. Each gate require a different motor, and a qualified gate technician should be able to determine which one is the best motor for a particular gate. The size of the gate (Which affect the weight of the gate), together with the materials that the roll up door was made of (Some rollup gates in Brooklyn are made from Aluminum and they are much lighter than the solid insulated heavy duty gates). Before making your rolling door motor-driven by installing a new motor, ask yourself few questions that will help you make the right decision.
What you need to know:
- How often the rolling gate will be used every day.
- Are you planning to make the new rolling gate motor driven or manual?
- What kind of rollup gate I am planning to install (Solid? Steel? Aluminum?)
- How do you plan to open and close the rollup (Remote, key-switch etc?)
- What the budget for the project? (Sometime it better to wait with the motor, than to install a cheap low quality rolling gate motor)
