    Sustainable Materials – Timber Gates

    One of our most popular choices for us and other electric gate companies is a wooden design. We always gather our timber from sustainable sources and work closely with managed forests to ensure this is always the case. Timber gates offer a traditional and beautiful appearance but can be modernised to suit your style. The closed-face designs are perfect for increased privacy and are sure to transform your driveway like no other. As the years go by, they will weather and begin to blend in with the natural surroundings – making them look better and better.

    Sturdy Metal – Aluminium and Steel

    If you’re not looking for a wooden option and want something a bit stronger or with an intricate design – metal gates may be a better choice for you. Galvanised steel is incredibly durable and can be made to suit many styles. You can create a more detailed appearance or keep them simple for commercial security. Otherwise, aluminium offers a more affordable alternative. Being strong yet lightweight, it benefits the automation system as it causes less wear and tear. Not only that, but they are more resistant to cracking and other damage, so will last you a long time.

    Other Style Options: Swing Gates

    Swing gates are the most popular style of automatic gates London 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.
