Details

We try to pay attention to the details.  One thing I’m always telling people is that a gate system should be an asset not a liability. When an investment is made and that investment is one of the first things a visitor will experience, it should be a good first impression. Not only should it be secure and reliable, it should look good. That is why we look not just at the big things but also at the small details.

Upper guide roller assembly- MGO Parts

This upper guide roller assembly is stainless steel and delrin. There is no steel to rust away and no bearings that need lubrication or replacement.  The anchors are stainless steel as well.

Big thanks to all our customers.

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.

Again, a very big THANK YOU to all of you.

Cheers

What we do that is different.

It’s difficult to answer someone when they ask about what we do that is different. They also say a picture is worth a thousands words. This a DoorKing 9100 on an elevated concrete slab in a residential community in Coconut Grove. This install just went through hurricane Irma.

The reason we will not repair hurricane water damaged equipment.

We have to back up the services/repairs we perform. This includes equipment we have installed and equipment we have taken over to service. Water damage, especially salt water damage may not incapacitate a device immediately. What’s worse  is water damage can not only prevent the equipment from operating in the future, it can become a serious safety concern. That’s why will will not be performing repairs on equipment that has obviously been exposed to water. If your equipment has been submerged, even for just a few minutes during hurricane Irma we will be more than happy to give an estimate to replace.

All affected wiring should be checked by a licensed electrical professional before re-energizing.

Thank you.

Not all storm/water damage is this obvious. Irma 2017

Crazy Colors

Kampong in the Grove
The Kampong in the Grove

This is a ten year old Door King 9100 gate operator. Our customer, The Kampong in the Grove, the location of the former winter home of Dr. David Fairchild, needed an updated but budget priced gate operator. We had just the thing. This location is a great place for a former high traffic gate operator to retire. The 9100 can pull and push the heavy steel gate with no problem. We installed a new main shaft,  new bearings, new belt and a surge suppressor. This operator will last a long time. One of the things we wanted to do was give it a new finish. So before overhauling we stripped it down and had it powder coated this cool red color to match the iron work at the Kampong. It’s almost iridescent. 

 

Thanks for stopping by!
