MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT GENERAL
Automatic gate and barrier systems are generally exposed to all weather conditions and varying levels of use and abuse. As with all moving equipment a maintenance program will ensure the longest possible life of the equipment. All automation systems are highly stressed in normal use and are expensive to install. For systems using hydraulics the simplest analogy is to compare it with a car braking system. Both use fluids that are hydroscopic (absorb moisture), require bleeding and 'O' ring changes to maintain optimum performance and to extend the life of the internal components. Our company provides full servicing facilities which can include on-site dismantling for rectification and fault finding, together with off-site service facilities where required for hydraulic pressure testing. Preventative maintenance provides the benefits of:
- Continued trouble free operation and peace of mind
- Extended life of the equipment
- Continual security and convenience
Three types of service contract are available:
1) PLANNED MAINTENANCE
To include visual inspection, full functional testing and performance of routine maintenance to include routine service of the equipment as itemised in the schedule applicable to the installation. Parts deemed defective that require replacement will be charged at manufacturer's current list price. Breakdown call-outs are excluded. Prices vary according to equipment and anticipated usage.
2) FULL SERVICE
To include visual inspection, full functional testing and performance of routine maintenance; to include routine service of the equipment as itemised in the schedule applicable to the installation. All parts deemed defective to be replaced at no extra cost between service intervals. Prices vary according to equipment and anticipated usage.
3) EXTENDED SERVICE
To include all items as listed above for full service plus site attendance next working day following our office being notified within business hours (before 2pm).
As an AAC maintained site, any service requests for site attendance take priority over non-maintained sites. Likewise exchange equipment is given first priority to maintained sites.
