Things to Consider
The following should be taken into consideration when ordering an Automated Gate system.
Your requirements - What do the you require from the system.
Aesthetics - Making sure the new system enhances the site.
Off the peg gate or bespoke - We have “off the peg“ styles from simple wooden three bar gates to the most elaborate metal gates. If you cannot find the design you are after then the gate can be designed to your exact requirements.
Existing gate \ system - Will your current gate be suitable, is your old system worth upgrading?
Supporting structures - Can any current walls or posts cope with the stress of an automated gate.
Ground work - Will the ground support a gate system or will it need strengthening
Building work - Will you be happy with our ground crew and technicians working while you are there - perhaps you would like to arrange for any major work to be carried out while you are on holiday?
Operators - What type of operators will be suitable for the required gate. e.g. high or low security, would you like the Operators to be hidden?
Audio/visual system - Would you like to be able to hear and see who is at the gate.
CCTV / Security - Do you want to integrate your property security and monitor who is at the gate. e.g. number plate reading - viewing images on the TV screen.
Access control - How would you like to open the gate i.e. automatically when the vehicle/person approaches, via a keypad or via a fob.
Safety features - What types of safety features are required for the environment. e.g. do you have children or dogs running around, is the gate to be used by the public
Cable runs - What is the best way to run the cable so it will not be damaged by vehicles, rodents or environmental conditions.- do you have currently have underground ducts?
Noise and Vibrations - Will it affect you or your neighbours. e.g. do you have interconnecting walls with either your house or the neighbours?
Power failure - What happens during a power cut. e.g would you be happy to manually open the gates or did you want a backup system.
Planning Permission - Do you live in a conservation area or a listed house?
Time scale - Does the gate system have to be fitted by a certain date or fitted in with other contracts
