Sliding Gates

Sliding Gates

According to a recent survey undertaken by the NFU, rural crime is on the rise and is reported that break-ins were costing farmers on average £5,100. Compromised farm security can also result in losses beyond the financial, important as that is. Mental health can be considerably impacted, which is already a serious problem for those in the industry. As many victims of theft can testify, the most unsettling aspect of the experience is often the emotional impact – a sense of violation and vulnerability.

Gates are such a mainstay on farms that their power in creating a solid defence can go overlooked and underappreciated. The right electric gate can make a difference and protect against the threat of rural crime.

Key Features

Sliding electric gates

Ground Track

Cantilever sliding gates are ideal for use where there may not be space for swing gates such as roadsides or where the ground may not be level such as agricultural/commercial sites. Due to the cantilever, no part of the gate comes into contact with the ground which allows for unaffected operation even with snow or loose debris on the ground. For residential areas, this also means a much quieter and smoother operation.

Sliding electric gates


High quality aluminium design painted in slate grey (RAL 7015) giving full rust resistance and ensures a long lasting life. Alternative paint options are available upon request. All of our hardware used on the gates are provided by tried and tested manufacturers including FAAC providing you with the assurance of the quality expected with our products.

Sliding electric gates


Rubber safety edges and photocells are installed as a safety feature that will stop the motor when resistance is applied or an obstruction to the gate is present. Gates are tested to UK Health & Safety regulations and Machines Directive.

Sliding gate app

GSM Controller

Access to the gate can be provided in numerous ways. As standard our gates are compatible with a mobile phone app that requires you to register phone numbers of the persons you would like to give access. Any other numbers that may call the gate will not gain access without being registered. Keypads are installed to our gates as standard as an alternative, raised posts designed for lorries are available upon request.

Sliding gate technology

Access Control

Keypads are installed to our sliding gates as standard providing a simple means of access. A raised height post is also available to mount the keypad on for taller vehicles such as lorries to gain access without leaving the cab. A GSM intercom uses a sim card to dial from the intercom to either a landline or mobile phone. This allows the visitor to speak with relevant persons to gain access. Our sliding gates have a preinstalled receiver for radio fobs.

Solar panels

Solar Panel Operation

Typically solar panel operation is implemented where mains electricity is not practically or financially feasible. Depending on the size of gate and approximate operations it will perform in a day, a number of solar panels can be fixed to a frame with a self contained cabinet that the deep cycle batteries are stored in. These batteries are capable of storing multiple days worth of operation depending on the time of year and the weather.

Security Fencing

Security Fencing

For where a whole site may need to be secured, we offer perimeter security fencing. We use pre-galvanised and powder coated wire panels preventing rust and keeping a clean aesthetic for years to come. Fitted using vandal resistant security fixings, this fencing offers an increased level of security which cannot be achieved with tradtional fencing methods. Panels are moss green (RAL 6005) as standard, additional colours available upon request.

Security cameras

Security Camera

For secluded areas or sites that experience alot of traffic, CCTV camera's are a worthwhile security investment. The camera's that we offer (as pictured) provide remote viewing using your mobile phone and will send a notification whenever motion is detected. These PTZ (pan, tilt & zoom) camera's are able to track and follow subjects as motion is detected making them useful for expansive spaces that cannot typically be covered by a single camera. We offer a whole range of additional security measures, if you cannot see what you are looking for please get in touch with one of our experienced team.
