A bit about the features

Brilliant torque and durability is achieved with the powerful 24VDC operator system. The unit has an exceptional battery run system with DC control devices and sensing devices and the internal obstruction sensing system helps in force adjustments for all directions. It also has a bi-part latch that helps in paving way for swing gate designs, which means one wing open after closing the other wing, and an adjustable timer which can be set up to 120 seconds.

Another pretty cool option

Control inputs give you the possibility of connecting to a complete range of devices like access control systems, loop detectors, radio receivers and telephone entry systems.

And the decision was right. If you are a bit handy, you will have no difficulty in installing the unit, the instructions are fantastic. After a few months it still works like a charm, I would recommend it to everyone.

3 Tips for New Contractors to Grow Their Business

Contracting can be a very profitable business. A good contractor can make a lot of money once they have established a solid customer base. However, establishing yourself takes lot of time and effort. You have to gain the trust of your customers and maintain high standards to be able to generate repeat customers and get new ones through word-of-mouth. Taking care of these basic steps is necessary, but not sufficient to succeed in the contracting business. Here are additional tips you can use to grow customer base and expand your business.

Market Yourself

In the age of the internet, you might think that business cards and flyers are a bit redundant. You won’t get a new customer from every single one you hand out so you do need to invest time in handing out large numbers, but you will see a healthy return. It is also a very cost effective solution as there are a lot of low-cost options online. It is best to hand out flyers during periods when people are most likely to be considering having work done. In the months leading up to Christmas, and at the beginning of Summer, are the best times. You could also try leaving business cards in DIY shops, or any other public place with a free noticeboard.

Top 3 Areas You Need to Invest in to Grow Your Business

The age-old question in business is should you split the profits after a job well done, or should you reinvest that money, strengthening the business? Although it’s always tempting to give yourself a nice big bonus at the end of the month, it could be to the detriment of your company in the long run. If you have a long-term business plan in place, these are the top three areas you should look to reinvest that hard-earned cash.

Social media

The sheer power of social media as a marketing tool cannot be underestimated. With just a few clicks, you can reach a global audience and far more customers than some simple fliers or business cards ever would. It’s without a doubt the fastest way to build your brand, as well as the best way to respond to customer issues. People are far more likely to reach out to you via channels they feel more comfortable with, and it’s a well-established idea amongst the public that they’ll get a much faster response. Whether it’s allocating a specific member or staff to this task, or a whole team depending on the size of your business, it’s well worth the investment.

You Can Do IT! How to Start an IT Support Business

There are number of people out there who are astonishingly good with computers. This is true of all generations, though everyone seems to assume that this is something that’s almost unique to younger generations. A lot of these people end up helping friends with their computers when something goes wrong. They may even be the unofficial ‘go to’ person when there are IT problems at the office!

If you’re one of those people, then perhaps you should be thinking about starting up an IT support business. Maybe you want to start an agency. Maybe you want to be a freelance contractor working directly for clients. Whatever the case, there is always demand for this kind of support.

We’re in a time where startups ensure they’re working with loads of computers, but don’t always have the means to have a full-time (or even a part-time) IT support employee on deck. This is partly why IT consultancies are doing such good business these days. Of course, you can’t just set up a website, call yourself an IT contractor, and expect business to start flooding in. You’ve got to take the right approach to this kind of endeavour!

If you’re at all interested in pursuing this path, then this guide is for you.

Research your market

The chances are that there are already quite a lot of IT services in your area. Seriously, they’re everywhere these days. So you need to ensure that what you’re bringing to the table is something that the others aren’t offering.
