What are the advantages of a sliding gate over a swing one?
It is more versatile and this is perhaps the main thing that makes it stand out. When the gate has to be on a hill, only a sliding unit will be able to operate on this kind of terrain. Similarly, when there is little room on both sides of the gate, a swing unit may not be able to open and close properly while a sliding one will function perfectly.
How can I tell if the gate opener battery needs replacement?
The useful life of modern batteries is around five years. Owners are typically advised to write down the replacement date right after the battery has been installed. This makes things easier and lowers the risk of the opener failing completely because of a dead battery. Signs that it’s time for battery replacement include corrosion around the terminals and overall poor gate performance.
