Full Gate System Installation

Gate operators are very limited in their ability to act on their own. You will require no less than five different gate control devices to successfully operate your automatic gate system. The additional devices required to properly run an automated gate include magnetic ground loops and wands, photoelectric through beams, card readers, contact edges and keypads.

Gate Operator Replacement

Replacing a worn-out gate operator involves more than just swapping-out the unit. It involves upgrading the gate system and gate safety devices to integrate with the new gate opener. Today’s gate operators require integrated safety devices be in-play before functionality can begin. American Access Company’s professional staff are knowledgeable not only on today’s technology but on older units as well.

American Access Company is one of the Midwest’s largest installers of complete electric gate systems. In cooperation with our vendors, we maintain an expansive inventory of components you can choose from to complete your system.

Gate Operator Repair

Twenty years ago, a gate operator was a very simple, easy-to-understand piece of equipment and making repairs was simple. Today’s gate operators are complex machines that more resemble a personal computer than the gate operators of the past.

To repair these gate operators, you need factory trained technicians who understand not only the mechanics, but the electronics. American Access Company has those technicians who partake in training personally with our manufacturers on the latest equipment every year. Gate repair is one of the most important services we offer, and we are proud to have such a skilled and knowledgeable crew that is more than capable of repairing even the oldest or most obscure electric gate system.
