NEWS: On 31 March, we are closing our Hinckley showroom and relocating it to 92 High Street, Earl Shilton, LE9 7DG. If you have an enquiry regarding your visit to our showroom, drop an email to theteam@ironcraft.co.uk and we'll be happy to help, Thank you.

All of our ironwork is manufactured according to a strict process that is designed to ensure longevity and allow a virtually maintenance-free finish. This involves hot dip galvanising to protect against rust and a top coat in a colour of your choice. We’re so confident in the quality of our products that all of our ironwork comes with a 10 year warranty against manufacturing defects and rust on all non-moving parts. We can also provide regular maintenance and servicing for our automatic gates according to legal requirements. Once we have installed your gates, we offer annual maintenance reminders to ensure that your system remains safe and legally compliant.

Maintenance & Service

Professional Maintenance

Ensuring the continued legal compliance and assured safety of your automated gates.

Under the current Machinery Directives Regulations and EN12605, it is now a legal requirement that automation systems are fully compliant when installed and are subject to regular service procedures thereafter. As such, our automated gates are all subject to a 12 month guarantee. However, once this has expired we offer a choice of annual maintenance reminders to ensure that your system remains safe and legally compliant.

"Installers... must take their responsibilities seriously to make sure that anti-crushing, shearing and trapping safety protection devices are correctly set and maintained."

The Health and Safety Executive Director of Field Operations

For residential properties, we will send biannual or annual maintenance service reminders. All services will be performed at a prearranged, mutually convenient time.

For non-residential multi-user sites, guidelines recommend biannual servicing.

"From our introduction to you we were impressed and it was our pleasure to meet you. Whatever you said about your firm turned out to be just right. We are so thrilled with our gates and everyone who has seen them has sang their praises, so that speaks for itself."

Mrs C, Markfield

Specialist Service

Our maintenance services will include a comprehensive review of your automated gates.

The full safety check includes greasing all motor parts and gate hinges, cleaning all safety equipment including photocells, checking all hardware, nuts, fixings and welding, checking and adjusting any settings and differences in alignment, a Multipoint Force Test that includes logging results and raising paperwork, computer analysis for safety against crushing, and a full assessment for other potential risk areas involving safety against pedestrian entrapment and possible crushing zones. It also includes cleaning of all accessories, keypads, intercoms and locks and the cleaning and lubricating of manual release mechanisms.

All consumables and labour for the service for systems installed prior to the new legislation coming into force and which are, therefore, non-compliant, we will happily visit to carry out a full assessment and provide a quotation for the necessary work to bring them up to full conformity.
