Why Choose A1 Automatic Gates

One of the essential components to beautifying your home externally is a gate…..

A1 Automatic Gates promises to provide a top class gate installation service from start to finish , we also supply , install , service & repair all brands of gate automation, car park barrier systems including intercom systems & access control . We only work with market leading automation suppliers when installing gate equipment.

We fabricate all our bespoke gate designs at our workshop facility and when this fabrication process has been completed the gates will then be sent off to start the galvanisation process to allow the gates to be hot dipped at 450 degrees using hot molten zinc coating to help preserve metal from weather damage .

The last stage of the process before installation will be the powder coating process or PPC as it’s know in the industry and you can choose from over 100 different gate colour choices to give your gates that perfect smooth paint surface finish.

Looking beyond the benefits above, such as security, automatic gates give many additional advantages over manual gates….

The ease of simply opening and closing at the touch of a button, no longer having to leave the comfort of your vehicle in bad weather to push heavy gates open and closed. A simple click on the remote control allows you easy, instant access to your property.

Visitors can access your property with a pre-given access code (for regular expected guests), others can contact you through the intercom system located externally before you decide to let them in (or not)!! This prevents unwanted or prank callers.

Back to security, not only will automatic gates deter most ‘chancers’ but the irreversibly geared motors on most automatic gates makes it very difficult for burglars to open with any tools. Not only do they secure your home, they also raise its value and lower your home insurance premium with most insurers offering great discounts once automatic gates and security entry systems are installed. Your car insurance may also be reduced as vandalism and opportunistic theft is greatly reduced.

Keep your children and pets inside – happy and safe – and unwanted visitors out.

Business owners can also benefit from automatic gates, barriers or bollards meaning premises are protected at all times – including evenings and weekends when less or no staff are around.

A professional installation will reduce vandalism and prevent unauthorised access or parking.
