    Electric Folding Gate

    Unlike a traditional swing or sliding gate, an electric folding gate leaves you more room for parking cars and utilising your driveway. If you’re already short on space, it’s a great solution to secure your property. Integrating them with a WLS access control system gives you even more confidence that they’ll last you a long time and provide you with effortless means of entry.

    A Whole Selection

    Choose from our durable metal or traditional wooden electric folding gate options. With decades of experience, we can create a bespoke design to complement your home or business and create a safe space for you. The aesthetic appeal is just as important as security so we will discuss every option with you and decide on the best combination for your needs.

    Space Saving

    Unsure if you can install gates on your tricky driveway? Not to worry – our team will give you a hoard of electric folding gate options that could work. Where traditional means wouldn’t work – like on sloped or curved drives – folding designs can offer a solution. Use the limited space you have for better things and don’t worry about obstacles getting in the way.

    Faster Opening Time

    An electric folding gate tends to open between three and seven seconds faster than other swing or sliding gates. This means you’re getting the most efficient solution for your money. If you’re constantly coming and going (or often late for work) it can make a huge difference in the ease of access. This is also beneficial for the security of your home and vehicles.


    Many gates still run on tracks to provide a smooth operation. But thanks to advances, bi-folding gates can now be installed without the tracks. This means they are less prone to built-up dirt and debris that might prevent them from running smoothly. You won’t have to clean them out and can be sure your gates will open and close efficiently.

    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. Get in touch to discuss our range of designs and materials.

    Swing gates are the most popular style gate we install. They are more aesthetically pleasing and less imposing than sliding gates. Swing gates add style and sophistication to a property as well as safety and security. WLS can design, fabricate, install and automate swing gates to your exact specifications in steel, aluminium or wood

    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.
