Question

How will I open my gates if there is a power cut.

Answer

All Gate Motors have a manual override key to release the gates manually.

Most Gate Systems that we fit have the option of a battery back up system which allows the gates to be used with the radio hand transmitters or in some circumstances the gates will open when the power goes off and close after the power cut, this is usual for car parks.

Question                     

How will the Postman deliver the mail.

Answer

You can either fit a postbox or provide the Postman with a key pad code that is in use at certain times of the day and days of the week to suit. For example 6am until

1.00pm Monday to Saturday.

Question

How will visitors get in.

Answer

There are several ways this can be dealt with depending on the level of security you require. A simple push button can be fitted on the outside and inside of the gates, these can be controlled by a timer which disables them during certain times and day if required. The same can be done with Induction loops buried under the drive, these detect the metal mass of a vehicle approaching and trigger the gates.

There are also various intercoms that can work in tandem with all the other systems, so when someone arrives out of hours they simply push the call button and call the house, you can then speak to them and trigger the gate open if you want to allow them in. ( This can also be timed out at night if you are concerned about prank calls.)

The Latest GSM Intercoms use the mobile phone network to call your house phones from the gate, and can even divert automatically to your mobile phone and you can let them in, even if you are not at home.   They would then normally leave via an induction loop detector on the inside when they approach the gates on the way out.

Of course your remote controls (Zappers) will work along side all of the various access controls, so the options above are really just to take care of visitors and deliveries.

Question

How do I get like for like quotations from reputable companies.

A Simple rule of thumb is to make sure you ask to see a selection of installations similar to your project and if possible visit and speak to the owner.

This will weed out companies that are inexperienced or fit to a low standard.

Question

Where do you get the gates from.

Answer

We Manufacture all our Metal gates in house, they are handmade by one of our two Blacksmith/ Metal Fabricators who have more than 60 years experience between them.

We have our Timber Gates hand made to our specification to suit heavy usage and the rigors of automation by local Joiners/Gate makers.

Another good reason to visit the Showroom to see the quality.

Question

How long have you been fitting gates and gate automation.

Answer

We fitted our first Gates in 1986 and our first Automated set of Gates in 1993 in a village called Finchingfield, Essex, and they are still working fine.

We are still a relatively small family business offering a good quality service.

We try to work within a 30 mile radius which is good for us and our customers.

There are too many companies trying to cover vast areas and don`t want to know if there is a problem once they are fitted..
