within this website. Perhaps you have seen a design you really fancy somewhere ? Take a photo, and then email or SMS to us so we can design and quote accordingly.
Bar Gates & Palisade Type Fencing
Open-spaced bar gates and fences offer a much higher level of visible perimeter security than walls, as intruders are unable to hide behind such fencing without the possibility of being seen from the interior and the exterior of the property. We also manufacture wooden gates. Timber is secured to a steel frame, and varnished prior to delivery.
We have a wide selection oo ornamental items
to enhance the aesthetics of the finished structure, and/or spike-rails fitted horizontally across the top of gates and perimeter panels, making it more difficult for intruders wanting to climb over.
All steel products will be hot-dip galvanized for rust protection, and in the event of on-site welding where necessary, ( repairs to old gates, etc, ) the weld points will be treated with appropriate anti rust & corrosion agents. We are also able to have your products powder coated if required, or painted to suit your property colour scheme.
Sliding Gate Automation - we DO NOT install swing gate automation ...
We install ET Systems 500kg 12-volt and ET Systems ACDC sliding gate
supplied with 2 remote controls, ( extra remotes on request ). Sand, lawn, etc, is very efficiently kept off the path of gate travel in our unique
, where appropriate. Motors can be programmed to close automatically after a pre-set lapse of time. E T Systems motors can be operated even during power outages due to an incorporated battery. The motor will be connected to AC Power for the built-in battery charger to keep the battery loaded.
Infra-red safety beams can also be installed and connected to the motor, and serves the purpose of stopping / preventing the gate from closing whenever an obstruction is detected in the path of the beams. An example is when a vehicle is still in the path of the gate travel, due to waiting for passing traffic before proceeding to drive through. While the vehicle (or a child, etc) obstructs the beams, THE GATE WILL NOT CLOSE !
Intercoms & Electric Locks
A video or audio
can be installed, which can be linked to operate an
electric pedestrian gate lock
, OR open and close a driveway gate, via the interior handset.
Building plans are required to be submitted to the local authority for all boundary erections and alterations. We will take care of all technicalities involved in drafting, submission and collection of approved plans as needed for domestic residential properties. For townhouse type complexes, apartment units and commercial properties it is advised to get the original architects to draft and submit.
