Most orders are shipped the same or next BUSINESS day (we are closed Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays) via UPS Ground, no signature needed. Should you require a signature please call our office. Larger items are shipped by common carrier (trucking company). All shipping charges must be prepaid, no COD.
You may receive two or three packages to complete a large order. Multiple deliveries do not require any additional shipping charges.
When large items are shipped by common carrier, and should the customer provide incorrect delivery information, a residential delivery surcharge will apply for residential deliveries. Such extra charge is the responsibility of the customer and will automatically be charged to customer’s credit card. Also to remember, when common carrier is used, often times the customer is responsible for unloading the items from the truck themselves or face delivery refusal/surcharges by the freight company.
You must report any damage to the shipping company and refuse shipment. Accepting shipment and without noting damage on the delivery slip will be considered a completed order as we cannot create an after-the-fact claim with the shipping company

We encourage you to download and read through the specification sheets and installation manuals of the products you intend to buy so you can get familiar with the equipment and verify that you'll purchase all the necessary safety devices in order to comply with UL325, ASTM F2200 Guidlines and your local building codes. If you cannot find an installation manual please contact our office and we will provide you with one!!!
A moving gate can cause serious injury or death!
Your vehicular gate is not intended for pedestrian use. A separate pedestrian gate is required if pedestrian traffic is expected. Clearly display warning signs on both sides of your gate.
Keep clear of the gate area at all times! People must be warned to stay away from all moving parts, entrapment zones and hazard or pinch points. If your gate has open rollers, be sure roller guards have been installed. Never try to operate the gate by reaching between, though, over or around the fence or gate. Make certain that all access control devices (push buttons, key switches, card Readers, etc.) Are mounted at least six Feet (6’) away from any moving part of the gate, or where they cannot be accessed by reaching through the gate. Do not permit children to play on or around a gate, and keep all controls out of their reach.
Obviously this section cannot cover all possible situations because each system is designed for a specific location or use, and has a unique set of components, however this section provides important HIGHLIGHTS of two safety standards related to automatically operated gate systems. Read it and be certain this information is reviewed by those authorized to use your gate.
The industry has endorsed two voluntary safety standards related to automatically operated gate systems. UL325 addresses the manufacturing and installation of gate openers and ASTM F2200 addresses the design and construction of gates for vehicular traffic that are to be automated. Owners and users must be aware of the possible hazards associated with an automatic gate system and take care to reduce the risk of injury. Be certain that the designer and qualified installer of your gate system understands and applies the UL325 and ASTM F2200 standards as they relate to your unique gate system.
Take a few minutes to inspect and test your gate system, make monthly inspection and testing a part of your regular routine. Safety is everyone’s business, make gate opener safety a habit in your home.
ASTM F2200 Requirements:
ASTM F2200 standards require that automated gates must have the following, where applicable: Covers for all exposed rollers, protective screen mesh and/or guard posts. Slide gates and the adjacent fence must not allow a 2 1/4” sphere to pass through up 48” from the ground. Gates must be prevented from falling over if disconnected from the gate opener. Swing gates with potential entrapment zones of greater than 4” to less than 16” must be protected. Swing gates must not have any protrusions on the bottom of the gate.
Please refer to ASTM F2200 for complete information
Ul325 compliant installations require the use of multiple entrapment protection devices that are effective while the gate is both opening and closing. Talk to your qualified installer about the entrapment protection devices recommended for your system. Some examples of these devices are:
-Gate Sensing Edges
-Audio/visual Moving Gate Alarms
Please refer to UL325 guideline for complete information
