  • Protecting your children when they are playing out on the drive and your piece of mind whilst in the house knowing that the ability to access your home from the road is controlled and barred by you.
  • Your pride and joy parked on your property, secure from thieves any time of the day or night, as access to and from the road is restricted by an automated gate system

Your Ideal System

How to build a wish list for your ideal system

  • Existing gates or new gates?
  • Timber of Steel?
  • To swing open or slide?
  • How do you want to control access?

Existing gates or new gates?

It is generally possible to convert most existing manual gates to automatic; your Access Controls approved installer will be able to offer you advice to any changes that may be necessary.

It is important to consider the physical condition of gateposts and existing gates, timber or steel to ensure that they are suitable for automation and that any posts are suitable for mounting gate operators and accessories.

If you are considering a new installation, our surveyor will be able to advise you or your contractor the exact requirement regarding post sizes, positions, suitable gates and any cable provisions etc.

To swing open or to slide open?

The choice is largely down to the space available – swing gates require a clear space for the opening- added opening distances can be achieved on underground systems by installing the gates on the inner side of the property and adding a 120 / or 180 degree operators, as most operators offer 90-110 degree opening distance. Sliding gates are perhaps the best choice when drive space is limited as they use the least space when opening.

Controlling your gates?

Access Controls will be able to offer a wealth of experience in various ways of providing access control solutions for your automatic gate. Whilst it may seem that you just want to control your gates by hand held remote control there is usually more to consider:

  • Postman, milkman, waste removal, paperboy etc.
  • Friends and relatives arriving by vehicle and on foot.
