 How the gate/door shutter operate

The gate/door shutters – when properly installed - are working in a very simple way: Every time someone is opening the door, the gate/door shutter bring the door back to a closed position. There are many possible reasons that store or home owners in New York install gate/door shutters, it can be a Bar, a mall, a shop, a hospital, an office, hotel or even the local grocery store, gate/door shutter is the simplest way to make sure that the door will be closed and remain this way until someone open it again.
And if the gate/door shutter was installed by a skilled installer, the door will close in the smoothest and the perfect way, and return to a closed position with no need to do anything, since the gate/door shutter do all the job. If the gate/door shutter was set up and adjusted properly, the gate/door shutter will swing the door until it will return to its place on the door’s frame, and even lock the door in some cases.

As long as the gate/door shutter is from top quality, and was made from strong components, together with a skilled installment, the gate/door shutter should close door a great number of times with no need for replacement. During servicing storefront doors in Brooklyn, we have seen gate/door shutters that worked for many years before they needed to be replaced. At the same time, we saw gate/door shutters that were installed few months before they broke. There are 3 main reasons why a gate/door shutter break within months:

  • The gate/door shutter is low quality.
  • The installer wasn’t qualified.
  • The gate/door shutter wasn’t the right gate/door shutter (A residential gate/door shutter installed on a commercial door).

To that we have one thing to say: We will refuse to install the wrong gate/door shutter. If the store owner will try to save money by installing the cheapest gate/door shutter on a door that require high cycle gate/door shutter, we will not perform the installment. We will not put the name of Matalonco on a door which is not 100% perfect. It can be a storefront door repair, or a roll down gate repair, we have a reputation as the best doors and gates company in New York, and we intend to maintain it.

How to choose the right gate/door shutter?

Quite a few shop owners, or anyone who use gate/door shutter to close the door, try to spend less by installing the cheap type gate/door shutters, believing they just saved a lot money by choosing to install the least expensive type of gate/door shutter. Sometime we estimate a new gate/door shutter installment in New York, and the store owner tell us that he has an offer which is 30-50% lower. We tell him that it can never be the same gate/door shutter, since the estimate he got is equal to the price of the gate/door shutter we want to install. And there is one important thing we learned after servicing doors in New York and: Never compromise for the quality of the products you supply and install. Jacob’s Iron Works might choose to pass a job, than to do a job that will not be the best. It can be a gate/door shutter installation, or a steel gate repair in Staten Island, we will always deliver quality.

Door shutter Installment Brooklyn

Purchasing high quality gate/door shutter doesn’t mean that you are going to have a high quality gate/door shutter. Locating a local installer, which is qualified and skilled is the second part, and only the combination of the two will ensure you will be getting a high quality gate/door shutter.
As we have said, gate/door shutters can come in different sizes and shapes, and there are few manufactures who offer strong and reliable gate/door shutters. To some, it may seem that installing a gate/door shutter is simply to drill it to its location, and have the gate/door shutter work flawlessly. But the truth is that every installment is unique, and require knowledge about doors, hinges, the structure of the door, and the gate/door shutter. If there is an issue with the door itself, such as a damaged hinge or a broken frame, the gate/door shutter may not be able to do the thing it was installed for – to close the door. Not once when we arrive to repair a broken gate or a fix broken garage door in Brooklyn, we find that there is a problem completely different than predicted. Like when the hinge of the door is damaged, and the gate/door shutter couldn’t close the door smoothly anymore. To the client it may look like there is a problem with the gate/door shutter, when there is actually a problem with the door itself as well.
There is only one correct way to install a gate/door shutter, and that is the proper way. Throughout many years of servicing doors and gates in New York, we got phone calls from clients who used different suppliers to repair their gate or their door, and ended with a door that still not function effectively. This is a result of techs who weren’t skilled, or weren’t trained to repair commercial heavy duty doors and gates.
