Automated Gates Overview

American Access Company is a division of American Fence Company. American Access Company installs thousands of automatic gates, gate operators, and access control systems each year. Following expert installation, American Access Company also provides maintenance and repair to automated gates, gate opener operators, and all access control components.

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.

American Access Company is a master distributor for our nation’s leading gate openers. LiftMaster Chamberlain, Linear, OSCO, GTO, HySecurity are just a few of our vendor partners. Annually, we conduct new product, safety and installation training on these major brands.

Gate System Maintenance & Repair

Maintenance is a key step in the healthy, long life of your automatic gate. Your gate’s chains should be cleaned, greased and tensioned as just one example of regular maintenance on your gate operator. Your gate opener should be maintained and serviced annually. American Access Company provides a complete service program through our service agreement or whenever you call. We will conduct an annual compliance check for proper maintenance and safety. Common features we inspect and adjust during these appointments include:

  • Chain
  • Guides
  • Chain rollers
  • Trucks
  • All other moving components

Gate System 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 beginning operation. American Access Company’s professional staff are knowledgeable not only on today’s technology but on older units as well. We have been installing gate operators and automated gate devices for over five decades.

American Access Company has the expertise and know-how to design and install your automatic gate operator system. If you are looking to secure a commercial property or install an attractive estate gate that opens at the push of a button we can help. We are also well versed in all of the latest safety requirements and will help ensure that your automatic gate is a safe one.
