What is the first step?
We will come to your premises to evaluate what your requirements are and will ask you about your preferences for the style and type of gate you wish to have installed, be it wooden or steel. We will also assess how you want the gates to operate and what automation system will be best suited to the gates and of course your property.
We will take measurements, discuss what access controls you require for how you want to be able to open the gates or to allow people in or out of whether it is a high traffic area or not. Power supply will need to be established too.
Based on the information gathered from our site visit, a detailed quotation will be prepared of all the work involved, equipment to be used and costs. If you choose to proceed with our offer, we will arrange an installation date at your convenience and inform you of the time it will take to install the gates and automation.
How long does it take to install domestic gates and automation?
It depends on the size of the gates, the level of access controls and availability of the power source for the automation but usually between 1 and 2 days.
Where a full installation is being undertaken, our preferred approach is to undertake a first fix, usually one site day and a second fix, usually one site day.
The first fix includes installation of posts where necessary, all ground works and all cabling. On completion of the first fix, there will be no further disturbance to the ground, and if necessary, the customer is then able to undertake other work to the drive, as all ground works by ourselves have been completed.
Having undertaken the first fix we are able to ensure that all measurements and details for the gate are accurate and correct.
Between the first fix and the second fix, this time is allocated to the manufacture of the gates (whether wooden or steel) this time may vary according to the time of year and the work already planned in, however it is usually about three weeks.
On return to site to undertake the second fix, the gates will be hung, automated and all works completed to the customer’s satisfaction.
Do you provide servicing?
Yes, we provide customers with an annual service. We charge customers £160 plus VAT for this service and it includes provision of a full service report. We are also able to service gates we did not install.
How long does it take to install industrial gates and automation?
It depends on the size of the gates, the level of access controls and availability of the power source for the automation but usually between 2 and 3 days.
How long does it take to automate existing gates?
Usually within a day but may take two depending on various circumstances.
Can additional key fob transmitters be ordered after the installation and if so how?
Yes, you can either call us or email us and we can arrange to post or deliver additional key fob transmitters to you.
