Keyless Entry for Wooden Gates

We’ve been receiving many calls recently from folks who have an exterior gate and want to use one of Emtek’s Keypad Deadbolts as a gate lock. They love the idea of having a keyless entry on their wooden gate, but wonder about the weather affecting the function of the keypad.

We’ve spoken with Emtek about their concerns and they assure us that their keypad locks have been thoroughly tested for outdoor use,  including the wind/rain/sun/snow that wooden gates receive.

So what is the Emtek warranty for these products?

In addition to Emtek’s standard mechanical and finish warranties, the keyless locks have an additional 2-year warranty on electronic components. We’ve included a copy of the standard Emtek Lifetime Limited Warranty for mechanical and finishes for your reference.
