Example of underground automation in operation fitted to our Warwickshire Driveway Gates. Gap between bottom edge of gate and ground needed to be increased due to driveway sloping upwards towards the customers property. As you can see, the underground automation motors are fitted in the ground to the side of the pillars. A bracket then attaches the gate to the motor. Underground automated gates are ideal for hiding the motors and keeping the appearance of the gate
Metal sliding gate opening and closing. This system was fitted to our Arundel Sliding Gate, using a track in the ground system and a FAAC 740 automation kit. The gate is supported using a "U" track fitted horizontally to the centre of the gate. This is then supported by the support post (positioned towards the right side of opening). Nylon rollers connect the support post to the gate.
Above ground automation fitted to our Baywood Hardwood Driveway Gates. Centre rail (not shown on video) has to be increased to enable the gate to withhold the pressure from the automation kit. We advise all gates that are to be automated to have increased structural frames etc so the gate isn't pulled apart. Therefore, if adding automation to existing gates, call for advice prior to fitting.
Single gate automation fitted to one of our Five Bar Field Gates. Automation arm visible on the top right side of gate. Enjoy easy access to your home. Daitem intercom system has been fitted to the right post. This connects to the customers property and allows the gate to be opened from within the home when a visitor arrives.
Underground automated gate using our Berkshire Driveway Gate. As you can see, the gate has two main hinges, one either side then connected to the underground automation motor via a bracket on the bottom corners.
One of our York Sliding Gates finished with Western Red Cedar automated using a BFT sliding gate motor. This system has been set up using a track on the ground with support post connected to the sliding gate via a "U" track rail system.
One of our Kingston Sliding Gates finished using Western Red Cedar. Automation by BFT using track on ground system. Width of opening is over 5.5m. This has been installed with upgraded security features such as additional safety edges. The motor is a low voltage 24v kit that has a built in stop and return if gate comes into contact with an obstruction. We can advise all on the benefits of additional safety systems to ensure your loved ones are kept safe. Any installation carried out by Gates and Fences UK will always have safety as number one priority.
