"Security with style" was demanded for this important project. Aesthetic concerns had to be fused with the requirement for a high level of security.

A pair of 70mm thick hardwood gates, 2 metres high and 6 metres wide were designed and manufactured by our carpenters. Operated by industrial quality underground actuators, the gates are secured in the closed position by magnetic locks and a drop bolt. Entry is controlled by remote radio transmitters and an intercom with digital keypad. Automatic exit is provided by an underground vehicle detector loop. In the event of mains failure or other emergency, a power back-up system will maintain operation of the gates.

This arrangement may appear to be a typical residential solution but in practice each project is planned for an individual client and no two installations prove to be identical.

This prestigious development by the river Thames in an exclusive district of Maidenhead was plagued by unauthorised parking.

We designed and installed Ram operated swing gates with free access and exit during quiet times via underground detector loops. At other times the gates are locked shut. Access is controlled by remote radio transmitter and by entryphone communication with visitors from each household using the public telephone system. This arrangement reduced disruption and inconvenience and saved money. During the hours of darkness, exit is by automatic underground loop detector.

Residents can be confident that their visitors will be able to park conveniently. As a bonus the improved security has helped protect against vandalism and crime.

During the last war iron was scarce and gates and railings were routinely commandeered for armaments manufacture. When our client asked us to install a new automatic entrance gate for his London home Westminster planners demanded that existing listed railings, now quite rare, were matched. Our design team responded magnificently with a superb replica.

The client required maximum off road parking with optimum security in a vulnerable part of London. We recommended a motorised sliding gate with a keypad for pedestrian access and remote controls for vehicle drivers. Safe operation was assured with intelligent motor control, infra-red beams and edge sensors to detect any obstructions.

When the six metre wide sliding entrance gate was delivered on a Hi-ab vehicle, a possibly over zealous traffic warden awarded a parking ticket! The installation was otherwise uneventful and both the planners and our client are delighted with the result.

First class security combined with a classic appearance was the criteria for this prestigious private house installation in a tranquil rural location.

The gates and fencing, designed by the house owners and manufactured by us to the highest standards, are fabricated from wrought iron. The four metre wide swing gates are Ram operated and controlled by remote radio transmitter as well as a visitor intercom system enabling the gates to be opened from within the house.

Additional security is provided by two automatic rising bollards positioned in front of the gates. These rise to a height of 500mm and are controlled by an interlock system to ensure the safe and secure operation of the gates.

The substantial pillars were able to support the gates without modification and the installation went smoothly with the client expressing themselves delighted with the result.
