Providing custom engineered solutions is a great way to differentiate your company from the competition. Custom engineering involves selecting the various components and wiring list required to accomplish a particular application.
In order to do this, you have to:
Listen to what the client wants.
Thoroughly evaluate their site and requirements.
Spend time researching for the best combination of components for the project.
Revise the details until the project makes sense and the client is happy.
Offer the project at a price which is compatible with the client’s budget.
Doing all these steps takes a lot of time! Well that’s true enough, but the more experienced you are, the easier it will be for you to perform these steps and build lasting and valuable relationships with your clients. Over time you will develop templates of products which you’ve cobbled together which have proven an effective solution.
We frequently encounter projects which involve gates. Gates are used for a variety of applications including vehicle gates into parking lots and estates, as well as pedestrian gates, pool gates and enclosures to stock rooms and storage. Gates are either swinging or sliding.
For access control applications, the locking device will be electrically actuated with some means of override for manual unlocking.
The gate may be manually opened or robotically opened and closed by a power operator.
Site conditions you are likely to encounter working on gates include worn or poorly operating gates, adverse weather conditions, remote locations where power and communications are an issue, and exposure to vandalism.
