Automation of Existing Gate Systems

If you are looking for an electric gate for your home then you will certainly want to consider automating your existing gates. To automate your existing gates is a cheaper option than a full installation and is suitable for many properties.

Simply Electric Gates have automated many existing entry systems, bringing that added touch of luxury and convenience homes throughout London and the Home Counties right down to Southampton. We are approved by Trading Standards so that you can be assured you are dealing with a professional company, dedicated to providing you with gate automation you will be using for many years to come.

We will conduct a free survey to evaluate your current gate system. Firstly, we will take note of your driveway, any slope and the distance from the road and from a power supply.  We will then check that your existing piers and posts are strong enough to withstand the continual forces applied by the proposed operators and any ‘potential wind loading’ which may adversely affect the operation of the gates putting excessive strain on the piers and posts. We may recommend rebuilding stone or brick piers with suitable steel reinforcement or installing new steel or timber posts between or behind your existing piers.

Timber posts are subject to warping, and twisting when your gates are automated and so we always specify steel posts.  However,  steel posts can be clad with matching timber to maximise the a
aesthetic appeal.

We will check all the other external factors including the working clearances between gate leafs, the strength and condition of your existing gate, the hinges and mounting brackets.   

We will then discuss your security and accessory requirements, and budget and advise you of the safety requirements for your new system.  We use only high quality, reliable automation equipment, being the approved installers of the country's most respected manufacturers.

We can automate your garage doors at the same time to give you a whole system for your convenience. Upon acceptance of our estimate, we will programme your works and agree a date for our expert engineers to transform your driveway.

We will offer you a warranty and after expiry we will then maintain your automated entry system so that it works to your satisfaction for many years to come.  All our maintenance customers are given ten percent discount on our services.
