These aluminium gates slide neatly along the wall at the front of this property. When fully open, they take up very little space.
Swing gates need clear room inside the gates to move through as they open and close.
These aluminium gates are installed against the house at the entrance to the side driveway and garage. They could have been installed at the entrance to the property but the opening was quite wide and the driveway rises. Both of these would have made the swing gates that the owners wanted, quite wide and high off the ground when closed.
We see this all the time. Wooden gates that have deteriorated badly and need replacing. These were typical of the sort of wooden gates that had looked good when new but were now seriously detracting from the property. By replacing them with another sliding gate in a wood look finish, the owners have the look they wanted without the problems.
This isn’t something we get the chance to show much but it’s a work in progress shot for a complete gate installation. There was quite a bit to do in this installation including laying special cables in the driveway. These operate the gates when a car passes over them. This installation also used underground gate motors so pits with suitable drainage had to be dug for the motor housings.
The first of these gates illustrates a growing trend. It’s built from aluminium infill sections inside an outer frame. The right hand gates are for a side passage security. Here a pedestrian gate and wider gate with letterbox have been integrated.
In many towns and cities, people want gates to secure their property but space can be limited. This is a great example of the problem and an ideal solution. Here, a single aluminium gate slides alongside the front wall of the property when it opens and closes. This frees up all the space inside the gates.
The owners of these gates wanted wooden panels inside a steel frame with ornate steel mouldings on top. They didn’t want the problems wood presents though so went for these aluminium infill panels in a wood-look finish. The end result gives them exactly what they wanted for the design but with non of the worries about maintaining wood.
Some see the track that a sliding gate runs along as something they’d rather not have. So, here’s the solution if you have the space. A cantilever gate uses a counterbalanced design where all the weight is taken by rollers at the motor. Aluminium gates are perfect for cantilever gates as they’re so light.
These lovely, low aluminium gates in dark grey use articulated arm gate motors for their operation. With no need to dig up driveways for underground motor installation, these gate motors provide a simple yet highly effective way to automate aluminium gates.
Traditional double curved top design, swing gates and a wood-look finish. These represent the epitome of the traditional English driveway gates. You need to get close to even begin to wonder if they’re not actually made of wood. And it’s only after they’ve been in place for a number of years, and show no signs of rot, that you can be sure that these are aluminium gates.
