Mr Walker approached us earlier this year about repairing the automatic gates on his home which had been installed for 18 years.

 

The gates that were fitted to his home had served him well for their time but unfortunately were susceptible to damage from the wind and the mechanism wasn’t performing correctly.

 

Approach

We assessed the gateway of Mr Walker’s home and recommended that their gateway best suited a tracked sliding gate rather than a swing gate for longevity and ease of access. The property had sufficient access and space for us to be able to fit the gates correctly without causing much disruption to the surrounding area.

 

Design

Mr Walker had a wide range of choices when it came to the design of his gates. Often, cost is the key driver in choosing the right material for the gate, as is kerb appeal.

The gate chosen was steel-framed with a composite infill in anthracite grey (RAL 7016)

 

Operation

Mr Walker chose a key fob as the main operation of the gates. The gates can be opened partially at controlled times during the day for deliveries such as Royal Mail etc. A code can also be input into the keypad to operate the gate.

 

Installation

We excavated to allow installation of new cables, ground track, guidepost and motor foundation plate. We then carried out the installation of all of the above setting into concrete and allowing to cure prior to installing the gate.

Every gate that is fitted by us has a full force test and full handover pack. The pack contains a risk assessment, declaration of conformity and details of manual override in the event of an emergency.

“Excellent service, delivering exactly what they said they would. Incredibly responsive to texts and helpful when deciding what to purchase. Gate looks better than we’d hoped for – absolutely delighted.”
