Maintaining Old Entrance Gates

Every time you leave your home, there is nothing worse than being faced with the sight of a pair of rickety old entrance gates as they are nothing other than a constant reminder that they either need a great deal of maintenance to bring them back to their former glory, or they need replacing. With the advancements in modern technology, the cost of installing electric gates has dropped considerably. One of the greatest advances has been the use of solar panels which are used to recharge the battery for the gate opener, thus saving a tidy sum of money in not having to provide a mains electrical supply by the gates.

On the flipside, because the weather can be pretty lousy, imagine how lovely it would be to drive up to the entrance your property, click a button on a remote control in your car and hey presto! To be able to stay in the warmth and comfort of your car as you watch your electric gates. Before you worry that there is not enough sunshine in the UK to keep the battery charged, you have to remember that your gates are not open and closed 40 times a day and instead probably around four times. As a consequence, the battery level seldom falls below 70% capacity. The sun does not need to shine for long or very often to keep the battery topped up, so this most definitely need not be a concern.
