    Create A Safe Space using Automatic Gates

    Automatic gates are becoming more sought after for security purposes. People want to feel safe in their home and business, but also want them to blend in nicely. That’s where our broad range of styles and materials offer the perfect solution. From durable, high-security steel to a closed-face wooden gate that looks natural and offers more privacy.

    No matter the solution you are looking for at your premises, WLS can help.

    Decades of Experience

    Covering London and the South East with stylish and intelligent automatic gates for over 25 years comes with its advantages. We now work with some of the leading experts in the industry and can offer you bespoke or standard installation options. We are Gate Safe approved and have a dedicated fabrication workshop where we turn your designs into products to be proud of.

    When it comes to automatic gates there’s not much our teams don’t know.


    Most commonly seen in commercial properties and areas with high-security needs, steel gates are chosen for their strength and durability.

    Not only do they hold up well against force – the strong material allows you to create some really detailed designs.

    For a secure but intricate entryway, steel may be the material for you. Our black powder coating also adds an extra layer of protection that could last up to 50 years.

    If you would like to discuss options using steel as the main material please contact our sales team today.


    We’re seeing more timber gates in residential properties now than ever before. They’re quite traditional and reflect the old ‘picket fence’ style we know and love.

    Closed-face gates offer a lot more privacy than metal railings as you cannot see through (great for the security-conscious). So if you’re trying to escape unwanted attention – take a look at what wooden designs WLS can come up with!

    Pedestrian Access
    The main priority for access through electric gates is usually vehicles. But people who are coming in and out on foot also need to be considered in any future solution you install.
    One option is a separate pedestrian access gate. However, if you don’t fancy that or don’t have the space – our automatic gates don’t need to open all the way every time. By programming them to open just a fraction to allow pedestrians through, you’re reducing the unnecessary strain on the mechanism whilst providing a solution that works for everyone.

    It can be a costly investment to install electric gates, but aluminium provides a budget-friendly option. They are still strong and durable so will provide you with great security and last a long time. They’re also lightweight which means they require less force to open and close – making them a really safe option. This also means there is less strain on the electrics, so you’ll find it low-maintenance too!
