Vigneaux – New Swing Gate Installations

At Vigneaux, we recently removed two old swing gates and installed two new manual swing gates. Swing gates are a popular choice for many businesses and homeowners, as they are relatively inexpensive to install and maintain.

The benefits of installing swing gates:

Ease of operation: Swing gates are very easy to open and close. Simply pull the drop rod out of the ground to open the gate and push it back into the ground to close the gate. This makes them a good choice for people with limited mobility or who need to open and close their gates frequently.

Long-lasting durability: Swing gates are made with high-quality materials and are designed to withstand the elements. This makes them a long-lasting investment for your business or home.

Security: Swing gates are very secure. The drop rod provides an additional layer of security by locking the gate into place.

Low-maintenance: Swing gates with drop rod are very low-maintenance. This makes them a good choice for businesses and homeowners who are looking for a low-maintenance gate solution.

Affordable: Swing gates with drop rod are relatively affordable to install.

Versatile: Swing gates with drop rod can be used in a variety of applications, including commercial, residential, and agricultural settings.

If you are looking for new swing gates that are easy to operate, durable, affordable, low-maintenance, versatile, and stylish, consider installing swing gates with drop rod.

Avoid the “Tail Light Guarantee”

Not all guarantees are as good as a Vigneaux guarantee. In fact, some are downright nonexistent! In the commercial door and gate industry, those fly-by-night contractors are delivering what is jokingly referred to as a “tail light guarantee.” What is a tail light guarantee? This means that your contractor’s support ends when you see the truck’s tail lights leaving the jobsite.

When researching the best contractor for your residential, estate or farm gate in Jacksonville, the best way to avoid the tail light guarantee is to choose a company like Vigneaux, with 24/7 service and over 30 years installing and maintaining gate operators. Longevity and trust have helped Vigneaux become the go-to provider for swing gates, slide gates and remotes for the private and residential sectors.

“Many of these cut-rate operators are not returning customer calls, and simply disappearing when things go wrong,” said Brian Davis, Vigneaux President. “The costs of repairs can often exceed what the customer thought they were saving in the first place. Even worse, is when these residential gate operators are so improperly installed that they cause damage or injury.”

To protect yourself from that tail light guarantee, ask your contractor the following questions:

• Is your contractor licensed and insured?
• How long have they been serving the North Florida area?
• Do they perform the installation work themselves or hire it out to a third party?
• What are their service hours and policies?
• Are they an authorized distributor for quality, name-brand parts and components?

Vigneaux installs and services most brands of residential gate operators, including the more popular manufacturers like FAAC, Viking and LiftMaster. In addition to their extensive commercial offerings, they provide solutions for most residential gate needs, including:

• Estate Swing Gate Operators
• Estate Slide Gate Operators
• Residential Swing Gate Operators
• Residential Slide Gate Operators
• Actuator Arm Replacements
• Gate Openers
• Gate Remotes
• Photo Eye Safety Sensors

Benefits of Planned Maintenance

You’ve probably already heard that planned maintenance is good for your bottom line. Depending on the industry, studies suggest companies investing in planned maintenance can save an average of 12-18%, whereas the ROI on preventative maintenance can reach as high as 545%! The same holds true when maintaining your overhead door systems and gate operators. Planned maintenance can reduce downtime while ensuring your equipment lasts as long as possible. More importantly, any downtime with your access control system or door systems could mean a huge security risk for your company. Staying ahead of any breakdowns ensures that your company stays up-and-running, and your employees and business stay safe.

Serving the Jacksonville community, Vigneaux is committed to keeping your overhead door system and gate operators operating smoothly. We understand that when your access doors are down, you need them fixed in a hurry. But troubleshooting to determine the cause and conduct the repair costs you valuable unprotected time. To avoid that, planned maintenance is the best solution. We offer planned maintenance with quick turnaround times, in addition to our on-demand service calls. We can even waive your service call fee if you sign up for planned maintenance within five days of your repair. Call us today to schedule your quote.

Vigneaux Eliminates Shipping Delays

Their onsite warehouse has 10,000 square feet of space stocked with double the standard parts inventory, so customers don’t have to wait for parts to come in.

Vigneaux even guarantees a 24-hour response time when security is a critical issue. Their professional service technicians are able to provide round-the-clock emergency service.
