After being contacted by a management company to look after an ageing sliding gate fitted at a multi residence property in Canterbury, Kent a few years ago it was found that the poor old sliding gate had finally lost its battle against the elements.
We offered them a new solution that removed the obtrusive height restrictor and give the development that all important wow factor once again as it is very centrally located within the town centre.
We started by removing the poor old rotten gate and the height restrictor, removing all of the old gate track as this had seen better days too.
This gave us the clean slate that we needed to start again, we installed a new stronger gate sliding track, complete with a heavy duty gate post to keep the gate upright at all times.
We then installed the gate automation system complete with fully safety system including safety edges and photocells and a force limited motor.
We covered all the steel work with iroko timber to match the new wooden gate and pedestrian gate to complete the look.
The customer needless to say was delighted as were we with the outcome, it has enhanced the look of the properties and added security.
