With various sizes and designs available, we can tailor make the right gate for you. Please see below some of the materials and treatments we use for our gates.

Timber Gates:
Our timber gates are bespoke and made to measure, using sustainable hardwood in iroko, oak and sapele, you may choose to have the gates hung on oak or steel posts depending on your finished design.
To ensure durability our timber gates can be oiled using osmo or teak oil. You may wish to have your gates left untreated for a natural finish over time.

Metal Gates & Frame Treatment:
Our metal gates are fabricated using highly skilled fabricators in creating a design of your choice. All of our metal gates are galvanised and treated in the method of powder-coating for anti-rust protection. We can powder-coat in any RAL colour of your choice, whether this be to match your existing doors or windows or simply a specific colour you have chosen.

Aluminium Gates:
With its durable anti-rust resistance, aluminium gates are becoming more popular. Aluminium is very versatile with unlimited designs, textures and colours to choose from, you can tailor make whether you wish for a contemporary or traditional look. With a light weight finish there is less strain on the mechanical parts and masonry.

Composite Gates:
With its eco friendly and durable material, composite gates offer a low maintenance with no need to treat or stain the gate. You can choose from a variety of designs and colours, including special effects from wood grain, smooth, to matt or gloss finish.

We will discuss with you our findings and recommendations to improve your system if required and to ensure the systems are left safe and compliant.

Access Control & Video Entry

Gaining access to your property is an essential part to your gate automation system, not only will it enhance security, it will allow you to control who enters or exits your property.

Exit Loop:
Without needing a code, remote fob or app, exit loops act as a trigger to open your gate or automated system for when the presence of vehicles are entering or leaving your property.

GSM Intercom Systems:
This type of intercom can call and receive any number of your choice if someone wishes to gain access to your property, for example, this could a delivery, visitors, or family and friends. By using a sim card within the device, you are able to respond remotely, even if you are not at the property.

Keypad Entry Systems:
By using a dedicated pin code of your choice to access your property, you will be able to control who you will allow authorised access. Keypad entry is also beneficial if you wish to regulate access to restricted access within the spaces of the property.

Video Entry Systems:
With a clear vision and audio you are able to grant or deny access to your property.

Entry & Exit Button:
Installed and connected to the gate or automated system, when pushed your system will momentarily release from the locked position, allowing entry or exit to your property.

The access control systems we supply to work alongside your automation system vary from a simple kepad entry, audio intercom, through to GSM and hard-wired IP video intercoms.

Whether you wish to have a flush finish into a wall, fixed to an oak or metal post, this additional feature is convenient, easy to use and will compliment your gate.

Electric Traffic Barriers

Vehicle barriers are becoming more widely used, particularly where restricted vehicle access and unauthorised parking is a problem.

We provide and install automatic barriers with beams from two to eight metres in length to ensure all access routes are protected.

Electric Rising Bollards

Bollards are used to inhibit access and parking, increase pedestrian safety and also therefore improve security.

The rising bollard is a retractable, hydraulically powered barricade which helps to deter and protect against such things as ram-raiding.
