Residential Gate Automation

Wooden gate installation

As residential and electric gate automation specialists, we design, manufacture, install, maintain and repair a wide range of automated products, including bi-folding gates, wooden gates and bollards. Please view our Residential Gate Automation page for more information.

Bi-folding Gates

Bi-folding gates are ideal for residential sites that are unable to accommodate a standard gate, as well as for driveways that are on an incline. They consist of two folding back panels that allow them to operate within a small space and are suitable for internal or external use.

These gates tend to be made from galvanised stainless steel and can be automated for convenience. They open in around three to seven seconds and are also available in hardwood or wrought iron.

Wooden Gates

Our wooden gates can be operated manually or automated, offering a cost-effective solution to controlling driveway access. They are made from either softwood or hardwood that can be reinforced with timber rails or metal bracing. These gates are best suited to residential sites that require additional security and privacy, as well as visual appeal.

Wood gates can betreated to help preserve the timber and prevent rot. No two gates are the same due to the natural patterns in wood, although they are prone to warping over time. When automated, they work well as driveway gates that ensure convenience and ease of access.

Residential Bollards

Bollard installation

Residential bollards work to define property perimeters, increase security and control driveway access. They act as physical and psychological deterrents to theft and can be made from a range of different materials depending on their purpose. Low impact bollards will be made of plastic, while embedded bollards that are designed to stop speeding vehicles can be made of steel, concrete or wood.

Ornamental bollards provide an attractive yet functional barrier and are available in a variety of colours and designs. Driveway bollards can be automated for convenience and vehicular access control.
