What options do I have for my gate material and design?
There are several types of materials available – you can choose from wood, hardwood, steel or wrought iron. Our gates are crafted to the highest standard, all made or forged in the UK.
When it comes to the design of your gate, you can choose from our standard range, or use your unique specifications to create a bespoke design.
For our wooden gates, we only use timber from renewable sources, and our hardwoods are sourced from renewable plantations. A variety of finishes are available for all hardwood gates, or alternatively you can choose to leave them untreated, either to treat yourself or to allow them to age & blend in with their surroundings.
You can choose whether you want your gates to be manual or automated too.
Do you offer different types of electric gates?
As well as having a wide range of gate designs, at the UK Electric Gate Company we also provide a range of different automation options for our gates. These are:
Above Ground Automation
A simple system, ideal if you have a limited budget. Cheaper than an underground system, as it requires no excavation because it’s post mounted and fully visible.
Below Ground Automation
Excavation work is required during installation, which makes below ground automation more expensive than above ground systems. This option is more aesthetically pleasing as it is totally concealed underground.
Suitable to be added to any type of gate, swing gates will require considerably more space and work best of flat ground. Swing gates are a cheaper option to sliding gates, as their automation system is simpler.
The perfect solution if there is limited space either side of the gates, or uneven, sloping ground beneath it. Sliding gates are also more secure than swing gates as they provide more resistance to forced entry.
Optional extras for further improving your home or commercial security solution and making the most of your electric gates include remote controlled access, key padded access and intercom control.
Can you only supply gates for large residential properties?
As our gates are all bespoke, we can cater exactly to your needs and requirements – this includes size. Our expert craftsmen can work on small or large projects, and if our standard range of designs are suitable for your project, get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
Can you supply automated gates for industrial businesses?
Although many of our clients rely on us for bespoke hand crafted gates for their homes, we also make industrial and commercial gates for a variety of premises. We understand that keeping your commercial property secure is vital, so efficient electric gates not only look the part but also improve the security of your premises with ease.
We can convert your existing gates with an automated system, giving you control over those entering and leaving your premises and ultimately more security. We can also install an intercom system, allowing you to communicate with your visitors prior to granting access to your property – increasing your security further.
For both bespoke or standard gates, for residences or commercial properties, we provide a free no obligation quote – contact us on 01743 455892 or fill in our online enquiry form to discuss options depending on your budget, space and requirements.
