    How Do They Work?

    After a long day, you want to be able to drive up and get straight home without fiddling with a padlock or keypad. That’s where automation comes in. It’s the perfect solution as the transmitter sends a message to the gate receiver that will respond by opening the gates just at the right moment. The mechanisms can be installed on swing or sliding gates – just take a look at our options. With our maintenance service, you can be sure they’ll work just as smoothly as the day they were installed. Don’t hesitate to call our team out for frequent servicing – we want your gates to keep you safe and look fantastic for years to come.

    Our Steel Options

    If you’re looking for strong and secure gates automation systems, we’d recommend pairing them with our steel gates. They are economical and when our black powder coating is added, could last up to 50 years. The top-quality galvanised steel will transform your driveway and give you an extra tough layer of security. Their strength also allows you to achieve more complex and intricate designs.

    A Traditional Option

    Wooden automated gates come with a traditional style and a bit more privacy. With a closed face design, you will be more secluded from the people beyond the gates. They are a stunning choice and even get better with age. The more they weather, the better they fit into their natural surroundings and if treated correctly – could last even longer than some metal options!

    Things To Consider
    • 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.
    • Cabling must be carefully wired and hidden so you don’t lose the electrical supply.
    • All components must be sealed to prevent water, dirt or insects from entering the system.

    These points are why we suggest getting in touch with our professional engineers. Make sure they’re done right first time.

    Budget-Friendly Aluminium

    If you want the strength and durability, but don’t want to pay quite as much – aluminium is your go-to. Great for anyone on a smaller budget, they are low maintenance and generally cause less wear and tear to the gates automation systems. We tailor-make any aluminium gate in our specialist workshop to ensure it suits your requirements.

    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.

    WLS can provide you with even more comprehensive security with our huge range of security fencing. Sometimes you will be looking for protection over privacy (or both!) so you’ll want a little more. Our security fencing can be integrated with automated security gates to give you the level of protection and privacy you require. The robust fencing will ensure you’re entire perimeter is secure and you can rest assured that expert engineers and technicians have worked their magic.

    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.
