Reactive Maintenance – With Repairs ↓ show more detail ↓

Reactive maintenance is classed as an emergency breakdown service, where we are contacted by a customer who for example has an electric gate breakdown. We then react within a specified timeframe to visit and attend to the electric gate failure in a similar way that the AA would attend to a car breakdown.

Pre-Planned Preventive Maintenance ↓ show more detail ↓

Pre-planned preventive maintenance is a scheduled maintenance contract where Portcullis Gate Automation engineers located at our regional offices based in Kent, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire visit a customer site once, twice, three or even four times per year depending on how busy the site is. Everything is serviced and correctly maintained to reduce the risk of failure.
