Automatic Bi-Fold Gate

An automatic bi-fold gate design takes into consideration space constraints and enables individuals to make use of their limited space.  The electric bi-folding gates will typically use an access control system; at WLS we use only the best suppliers to ensure your gate system is of the highest quality. Retain the space to park your car whilst having a gate that can open and close within the limited area.

Full Range Of Electric Gate Automation Systems

WLS has been manufacturing and installing swing gates and sliding security gates in London and South East England for more than 25 years. We can provide steel, aluminium and wooden gates and use innovative, high quality gate automation technology to design and install the very best security systems. We are Gate Safe approved and have our own dedicated security gate automation and fabrication workshop.

Space Saving

Bi-fold swing gates are commonly used in driveways where this is not sufficient space for swing or sliding gates. Limited space for gate automation may include a sloping, curved or short driveway – this is a key design consideration. Obstacles such as a risen driveway, parked cars, walls, plants or the house itself may prevent traditional gate systems from functioning correctly.

Faster Opening Times

The reduction in the space needed to move an automatic bi-fold gate means the system is far quicker than a sliding or swing gate. The design of the gates may allow them to move faster, but this limited space will require a specialist design to ensure you can achieve a quick opening time.

Avaliable trackless

Technological improvements in gate automation mean that bi-folding gates can now be installed on a trackless system. Whilst previously wither a track in the ground or overhead rails were required, the system can now operate without this installation. Tracks require regular cleaning to remove excess dirt and debris that could damage the gates from functioning, so you can rest assured your system will continue serving its purpose correctly.

Gate Options
  • Steel, stainless steel or timber material options
  • Wide range of polyester powder coated colour finishes
  • Bespoke and standard designs available
  • Gates can be made to match any type of fencing
  • Names or logos can be added to the front of the gates
  • Standard or high-speed options

WLS has its own dedicated gate automation workshop where we can custom-make automated gates to your exact requirements. We use automatic electric gate openers from leading manufacturers to design and install the very best gate automation systems. We oversee the entire manufacturing process, from visualisation and design to manufacturing and installation. Our engineers and sales team also regularly attend training courses including those provided by Gate Safe, the independent UK charity dedicated to raining standards of gate safety, to keep up-to-date with the latest automatic electric gate opener developments.

We can integrate your electric gates with access control systems such as door entry systems, or biometric access control panels. We also provide electric gate repairs, service and maintenance..

Health and safety directives mean there are strict guidelines for installing automatic gates. It’s essential to ensure that the design and installation of security gates is in compliance with the latest regulations and industry security best practices. Automatic gates must also be regularly tested, and our thorough maintenance and testing programme can ensure that your electric gates are safe and fully HSE compliant. Our service engineers are qualified to work not just on WLS supplied electric gates but also automated gates provided by other companies.
