I just wanted to take a minute to post a thanks to all our customers who have been so patient with us since last September when Hurricane Irma struck. We have a big base throughout South Florida and a good portion of those customers are in the Florida Keys.
Even though it has been six months, we are still working overtime trying to get gate equipment repaired, replaced and re-installed. We hope to restart our preventative maintenance program again very soon. It is the one thing that we have stopped completely for the duration so we can concentrate on getting customers up and running.
Lots of times gate operators need to be installed in such a way that was not planned for by the manufacturer. The equipment is engineered for a wide range of installations. Those plans don’t always cover the situation at hand. In this case the customer had very intricate, electrostatic coated gates that we didn’t want to attach the gate operators to. The installation required custom brackets.
You can see how the bracket allows clearance for the screen on the fixed panel.
We also manufacture our own goose necks. This one has been lengthened to accommodate the fixed panels and the extra reach. The DoorKing 1812 Classic was also powder coated to match the gooseneck and ad life to the housing due to the close proximity to Biscayne Bay. The last picture you can zoom in on.
