Why Do my Gates Need To Be Serviced?

Gates are very much like a car! There are many moving parts and they sit outside in every type of condition. Gates need to be oiled,  greased tested and cleaned.  Without this gates and gate automation parts will fail and fail quickly!

Are Electric Gates Safe?

Gates are safe if installed to meet the current regulations.  They can be dangerous if not installed with the correct safety devices.  There are circumstances when gates can be so dangerous they need to be isolated until the faults are fixed! The latest gate systems are often fitted with anti crush systems to ensure maximum safety.

Do I Need Planning Permission For Gate Installations?

The easiest answer is yes, but not always.  It is always worth asking your local planning office.  If you have existing gates it may be a much easier process, providing the new gates are a similar design and height.

How Much Is A Gate Installation?

How long is a piece of string? Their is not a simple answer to this as it depends on what you want in your system. I would say a set of Hardwood gates with intercom and Gate automation motors would cost between £5000 to £15000.  Gate systems can go much higher in price when new walls are built or top of the range intercom systems are installed.
