    Why You Should Invest In Gate Automation – London

    With all the coming and going we do each day, wouldn’t it make life a little bit easier if you had automated gates? It’s just one less thing to think about. The transmitters will send signals to your system, letting it know you’re coming. Whether you fancy sliding or swing gates, each option is just as easy when you decide on gate automation London.

    WLS Automation Experts

    Automatic electric gates are a key part of any security and access control system. We provide a complete service for gate automation London, working exclusively with the top suppliers, including FAAC, BFT and CAME during every step of the process. From manufacturing and design to installation and serving – we have the professionals for the job. Why get wet and cold every morning, spending that little bit more time getting in and out when you don’t need to? Streamline your driveway and make every day that little bit simpler with WLS.

    Automated Gate Safety

    While automatic gates look fantastic and can be a great security measure, there are some precautions you need to take when using them. Open-faced gates run the risk of opening while someone’s limb is between the rails or panels. This is why it’s important to stand clear of any moving gate until it has fully opened or closed. You can also add a wire mesh between the gaps to reduce this risk. We will always install and fabricate our products to the highest standard – ensuring everything complies with the latest British standards. So come to WLS for reliable, knowledgeable experts. We always have our customer’s safety at the forefront of our minds.

    Better With Age

    If you’re looking for a traditional option that will last as long as you’re in your home – wooden gates are your best option. They get better with age from general weathering and will blend in with the natural surroundings. If treated correctly, they run smoothly, look great and can often last longer than some of our metal gate options! If you’re looking for something traditional but want to put your own spin on it, get in touch with our team today. (We can even incorporate logos!)

    The Installation Process

    It’s important you have professionals installing your new gates, otherwise, you could run into issues. If they are not set up correctly and levelled – you may find they quickly stop opening all the way or working altogether.

    • Posts must be installed deep into the ground and fully cemented. If not, the gates might get stuck.
    • Sliding tracks must be flush as bumps could stop the gates from openeing.
    • All components must be sealed to prevent water, dirt or insects from entering the system.
    Swing Gates

    Swing gates are the most popular style chosen by our customers. People seem to love the way they look and the fact they are slightly less imposing than sliding gates. Swing gates add a new style to a property as well as improving safety and security. Incorporating them with a high-tech access control system can complete the look and add even more convenience to the already wonderful swing style. We can create your bespoke gates in our fabrication workshop from your choice of steel, wood or aluminium.

We use automatic electric gate openers from leading manufacturers to design and install the very best gate automation systems.

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. It makes life so much easier when something can be done at the click of a button. Why should your driveway be any different? Technology is still advancing and WLS have some of the most recent and intelligent access control systems on offer. If you want to perfectly complete your driveway security, get in touch today. 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.

    Installing security fencing ensures that your property is fully protected against unwanted and unauthorised intrusion. We can install robust fencing to integrate with your automatic electric gates, providing complete perimeter security. There is a huge range of options available depending on the security level required. If you’re unsure that a gate is going to give you enough security, fencing might offer you peace of mind. Our experts can explain how we could match the two and what you might benefit from in the long run.

    Our Work

    Emergency call-out for a faulty house alarm. Boss Matthew was very helpful on the phone, especially given my vague description of the system. The engineer was round within a couple of hours and sorted things very quickly. 10/10 would definitely recommend.
