Having an electric gate installed outside your house not only improves its appearance, but can also add value to your home. With so many choices of material, it can be a difficult decision to decide what to go for. The UK Electric Gate Company has been manufacturing beautiful electric gates for many years and we are proud to be able to manufacture and install bespoke electric wooden gates for our customers. If you’re unsure about what type of electric gate is suitable for your home, we’re happy to discuss your requirements – why not ask for a free quotation?

A traditional wooden electric gate looks great on both older and modern properties. Wooden gates are a popular choice with our customers as the natural material allows the gate to blend in with the surrounding environment, whilst still providing optimum security. Our wooden gates are made with superb artistry using tried and tested methods that has been passed down through the generations.

We can provide various types of wood for your electric gate including Iroko, Sapele and Oak. Iroko has a natural colour which gives a timeless look and feel. On the other hand, Sapele is a darker wood and is popular with customers who like the appearance of mahogany. Both of these types of wood are hardwoods and are renowned for their durability and how well they weather. If you’re looking for a classic design, oak is another popular choice, also recognised for its durability. As it contains high levels of tannin, it’s more immune to insect infestations or damage from fungi than some other types of wood.

After you have decided what type of wood you would like your electric gate to be manufactured in, it is time to think about what automation system you require. We provide a range of automated control entry options for your gate such as remote-controlled access, key padded access and intercom control. Additionally, you can choose from swing gates or sliding gates which are great if you have limited space on your driveway.

We believe that the beauty of our electric wooden gates is incomparable and as all of our wood is responsibly sourced from our sister company, Border Hardwood, the quality of the gates we produce is second to none.

Wherever possible, we will also aim to match any existing fences or walls during installation, so that your new gates will not only look like they belong, but appear to be part of the original architecture.
