An electric gate – wooden or metal offer a level of security you wouldn’t get with a simple lock. However, a benefit of the traditional wood option with our automated upgrade is that it looks fantastic and can be designed fully enclosed. This means, unlike metal gates with railings, no one can look inside your property. It offers you much more privacy than other designs while still looking its best. Read on to find out more.

No Unwanted Attention

While you can always decide on the most suitable height and design for your gates, metal is usually designed with rails and bars to provide the best stability. But if you’re worried about unwanted attention – fully enclosed wooden gates can provide the solution. They look lovely and provide the most privacy when installed. There are no gaps to peep through and they will completely secure your property. You can design them exactly as you’d like, even including logos if they’re securing your business.

Long Life

Your electric gate – wooden or metal can provide you with years of security. Many people expect the strong metal to last longest, but in reality, if they’re treated correctly, wooden gates can last much longer. By repelling water and debris from the surface, you will diminish the risk of warping or rotting. We will help you fully understand the best process and how to look after your gates properly. We never leave a customer until they’re completely satisfied with the job and have the knowledge to go forward and enjoy their new gates as best they can.

Sustainable Sources

Although we offer different options, all of our timber is gathered from sustainable sources. Managed forests allow us to create the bespoke and beautiful designs we love, with a reduced risk to the ecosystem. The choice is yours – we have a range to suit any style and your gates will be made within our fabrication workshop. All you have to do is settle on a design and watch the magic happen. But feel good for it too – know you’re doing what you can to upgrade your entrance while looking out for the planet too.

Tracked Sliding Gates
Sophisticated and less imposing, our sliding wooden gates do not encroach onto your driveway and tuck neatly away with the mechanism when open. They give you more space to play with and offer more control when in use. They are a great option for sloped or short driveways as they just have to be installed on a flat surface. Because they’re lighter than steel, they’ll also cause less wear and tear on the track. This means the maintenance will be easier and you can enjoy your new gates, hassle free!
Stylish and Welcoming

If you’re looking to add style and warmth to your entrance, wooden gates are the favourite option. They don’t stand out as much as metal as they blend in well with the surroundings. Especially as they get older – they weather slightly and look even better than when they were first installed! While you can get more intricate with metal gates, the simplicity and elegance will finish off any entryway perfectly. WLS offer bespoke designs or standard installations to cater to everyone’s needs, so get in touch today.
