Upon receipt of any product, customers must inspect the packaging for any signs of shipping damage. In the event of damage to the packaging, customers must immediately inspect the product for damage and have the delivery person sign on the delivery receipt that the item was damaged in shipping.

If you wish to avoid any issues please upgrade your shipping and have your package insured - contact us for a rates. Furthermore (this is big), should you return a free-shipped item to us we will deduct the original shipping costs in addition to all the other fees from the refund amount due (which can amount to hundreds of dollars on large items).
Unless you have purchased a separate warranty from us, all warranty claims must be handled by the manufacturer directly. If you would like to hire us to process your warranty claim, there is a minimum charge of $149 per occurrence (subject to change anytime), not including shipping charges which are paid by you, they customer. You are required to first receive a ticket number for the damaged part before we can process your warranty claim
A moving gate can cause serious injury or death! You must refer to your gate operator’s manual and consult with the installer for additional information before you buy any product. We encourage you to download and read through the specification sheets and installation manuals of the products you intend to buy so you can get familiar with the equipment and verify that you'll purchase all the necessary safety devices in order to comply with UL325, ASTM F2200 Guidlines and your local building codes. If you cannot find an installation manual please contact our office and we will provide you with one!!!
Your vehicular gate is not intended for pedestrian use. A separate pedestrian gate is required if pedestrian traffic is expected. Clearly display warning signs on both sides of your gate.
Keep clear of the gate area at all times! People must be warned to stay away from all moving parts, entrapment zones and hazard or pinch points. If your gate has open rollers, be sure roller guards have been installed. Never try to operate the gate by reaching between, through, over or around the fence or gate. Make certain that all access control devices (push buttons, key switches, card Readers, etc.) Are mounted at least six Feet (6’) away from any moving part of the gate, or where they cannot be accessed by reaching through the gate. Do not permit children to play on or around a gate, and keep all controls out of their reach.
This section cannot cover all possible situations because each system is designed for a specific location or use, and has a unique set of components, however this section provides important highlights of two safety standards related to automatically operated gate systems. Read it and be certain this information is reviewed by those authorized to use your gate.
The industry has endorsed two voluntary safety standards related to automatically operated gate systems. UL325 addresses the manufacturing and installation of gate openers and ASTM F2200 addresses the design and construction of gates for vehicular traffic that are to be automated. Owners and users must be aware of the possible hazards associated with an automatic gate system and take care to reduce the risk of injury. Be certain that the designer and qualified installer of your gate system understands and applies the UL325 and ASTM F2200 standards as they relate to your unique gate system.
Take a few minutes to inspect and test your gate system, make monthly inspection and testing a part of your regular routine. Safety is everyone’s business, make gate opener safety a habit in your home.
ASTM F2200 REQUIREMENTS
ASTM F2200 standards require that automated gates must have the following, where applicable: Covers for all exposed rollers, protective screen mesh and/or guard posts. Slide gates and the adjacent fence must not allow a 2 1/4” sphere to pass through up 48” from the ground. Gates must be prevented from falling over if disconnected from the gate opener. Swing gates with potential entrapment zones of greater than 4” to less than 16” must be protected. Swing gates must not have any protrusions on the bottom of the gate. Please refer to ASTM F2200 for complete information.
UL325 compliant installations require the use of multiple entrapment protection devices that are effective while the gate is both opening and closing. Talk to your qualified installer about the entrapment protection devices recommended for your system and refer to UL325 guideline for complete information. For your knowledge, examples of devices as described above are: Gate sensing Edges, Photoelectric Sensors, Audio/visual Moving Gate Alarms.
Although the gate industry moves at a slow pace and innovation is a trickle we carry the latest product version, the freshest inventory with current warranties. Having said that, at times there will delays in updating information, there will be some mismatch information, erroneous information, error in entries etc which means we cannot warrant the accuracy of the information word for word, the pictures or the links. Each item is inserted manually and since we have hundreds of items some may slip between the cracks. We make changes to the product information regularly but legally are not liable for failure to update the information so don’t say we didn’t say so :-).
