Types of Automatic Gates:

If you're looking for made to measure gates and railings, Automation and Security, Northumberland can help. It is essential to choose the right automatic gates that suit you and your personal circumstances the best. Our gates are high-quality and come in a wide range of designs, styles and colours to suit you and your property. 

Here are a few of the main types of automatic gates we provide:

Wooden gates are great for both modern and traditional properties. They are ideal for adding extra privacy and security to your home or business, and they don't need a lot of maintenance, which is a bonus. Our wooden gates are extremely high quality to ensure they are durable and last a long time. 

If you are looking for a more elegant or professional look, then wrought iron gates would be perfect for you. There are so many designs and styles for you to choose from to look great with modern and traditional properties. Wrought iron gates also don't require a lot of maintenance, which is another added benefit. 

Sliding gates are great if you only have a small driveway, as they don't require much space at all. They work by using a flat or rack that attaches to the side of the gate. Please give us a call today or check out our website for more information on the wide range of automatic sliding doors kits. 

Automated swinging gates are generally fitted as a pair and swing open and closed. They are best suited for larger driveways; due to their operation, it is always possible for them to crush into something. For more advice regarding swinging gates, please give us a call today.

Choosing the Right Motor  

There are two different types of electric motors, including 230v and 24v. Which one you choose will depend on how often your gate operates throughout the day. Typically, if your gate operates under 15 times per day, you will be better with a 230v electric motor, but if your gate operates over 15 times per day, you will be better off with a 24v electric motor.

Electric Gate Safety

It is essential to understand the ins and outs regarding electric gate safety. For example, you should first ensure that a highly trained and qualified installer does a full risk assessment of your entire property before fitting the gates. You should also ensure that the installer carries out all the relevant tests after your new automated gates have been fitted to ensure they operate safely and correctly.

For example, if you choose to have swinging or sliding gates, then there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration to ensure safety, including:

If there is a possibility that a car could be crushed or something could get trapped due to the gates opening to closing, then the gates will use the safety edges. These safety edges can detect anything that might be in the way of the gate operation; if they detect anything, they will send a signal to the main-board to stop the gates from moving. 

Photo calls are basically infra-red devices that will detect objects, people or animals and stop the gates from operating to ensure complete safety. Usually, 4 photocells will be installed in your electric gates, but where they are installed will depend on your specific site. 

Swinging gates swing open, and it is always possible that they could hit something. This is why you should think about all the factors before choosing whether your driveway gates should be swinging or sliding. 

If necessary, you can install warning devices that make loud noises or flashlights when the gates are in operation or about to be in operation. This is why it is important to carry out all the necessary risk assessments before installing the gates to decide what you need.
