We Call 811: Before digging, We call 811 to be sure We won't hit any utility lines.
We Set the Posts: We Set the 2 gate posts to the correct distance apart and proper height in concrete (see the appropriate gate spec drawing in ourDriveway Gates section) and We make sure they’re level and plumb. Let set overnight. (Digging times vary due to nature of the soil. Measuring multiple times is also highly recommended!)
Mount the Hinges: Our posts are pre-drilled and threaded so all you do is screw them into the holes. (Takes about 10 minutes or less.)
We Hang the Gate: We will need a helper for this (for most gates and sizes). Our gates mount easily onto the heavy duty hinges. We Adjust the hinges a bit with a wrench to fine tune the level of the gate leaves. (Takes about 15 minutes or less.)
We Mount the Opener: We Bolt on our gate opener brackets and mount the opener on the brackets. (Takes about 20 minutes.)
We Hook up Accessories: We Wire the desired access controls such as a keypad, exit sensor and gate reversing photo eye. (Download appropriate Product Manuals and/or Installation Guides) (Times vary according to equipment chosen.) We Test the system: We See that the gates open and close together, meet in the middle, and devices work as expected. Be sure to follow the instructions in the manuals.
