Should My New Gates Be Automated 

You do not have to have the complete package from us. We could simply survey and/or quote for manual gates.  We can design them with future automation in mind. 

We could even provide in-ground foundation boxes to permit you to hang your gates and install the ductwork. At a later stage, our designers can merely show up and install the automation without disrupting evictions or ground material. It is always best to complete any kind of disruptive jobs early while doing so.

Either hydraulic rams or electro-mechanical electric motors are installed on the back of each gate leaf. The last option of running system will depend upon weight and dimension of your gate.  Think about whether you remain in a particularly gusty location. So we would advise hydraulic rams for a windy site and for larger gates.


  • Keep away from removing powered gates.
  • Only run remotes visible of the gate.
  • Get them examined and maintained routinely by a qualified and certified expert.
  • Just use correctly educated and qualified specialists to work with your gate.


  • Allow kids to play on or near powered gates.
  • Park or stop unnecessarily within the sweep of a powered gate.
  • Modify or interfere with the controls.
  • Ignore safety and security recommendations provided by properly trained and qualified professionals.

Adding Value

Gates that remain well maintained on the residential property may help sell it quicker. Make sure you can get them to work when potential buyers come round.

Badly kept gates that clunk open, jam or scuff your drive will certainly diminish the property's value. There is no question, however, that a gorgeous gate will improve the look of the building. A gate tailored to its environments will add value to your house, whether it is automated or otherwise.

The Size of Opening

Identify the opening width. Our in-stock gates come in 4 dimensions: 12, 14, 16, and 18 feet. The dimensions are "in the clear" measurements between gate articles and are not the real gate panel size. If you require a details size disappointed in our conventional sizes, we could develop that size for you as Custom Gates. Call us for more details.

Swing Type

For the most parts a moving gate, turning on posts far from incoming traffic and right into the home is best. If your driveway inclines up you should have a gate that swings away from the property and towards traffic. A bi-parting gate is best for a sloped driveway whether it swings in or out. Keep in mind that our 12 feet gate is a solitary swing while the 14, 16, and 18 ft gates are bi-parting.
