Automatic Gate Installation – Hunters Hill – January 2017
Published on December 7, 2017 at 5:30 PM
This week we completed the supply and installation of an Automatic Sliding Gate System with matching Swing Driveway Gates and a Pedestrian Gate at Hunters Hill.
Our clients had existing twenty five year old swing gates which were in need of upgrading.
The request was to update the existing timber swing gates located at the front boundary fence with a new electric sliding driveway gate system, we were also asked to install new matching swing driveway gates for added security at the side of their home and install a matching pedestrian gate at the front fence to allow easy pedestrian access into the property.
As the side area of the driveway was not level with the driveway and contained a well established garden with lovely trees which no one wanted to see removed it made it difficult for a concrete base to be poured to support the gate track which the gate requires to slide along into the open position.
To overcome this problem we mounted brackets behind the fence line which supported a post and rail base, the track was installed onto the post and rail base which allowed the automatic sliding gate to slide along into the fully open position giving our clients full driveway width clearance allowing vehicles ease of access when entering and exiting through the driveway gate. This post and rail set up allowed for the automatic sliding gate system to be installed whilst retaining the existing garden and trees next to the driveway gate area.
To operate the electric sliding driveway gate the clients have been supplied with several key ring remote controls, the remote control button is pushed once to open the gate and then pushed again to close the gate.
A separate wireless wall mount remote control was installed inside the home, this allows the clients to easily open and close the automatic sliding driveway gate from inside their front door when they don’t have their remote controls readily available.
This wireless wall mount remote control is a handy feature for example when going outside to put the garbage bins out for collection or letting in a visitors vehicle.
The matching pedestrian gate located in the front fence of the property is installed so that it can be locked off to pedestrian access if the clients are away, ensuring easy pedestrian access when they are home and full security when they are away from the property.
In keeping with the style of the home the automatic sliding driveway gate, swing driveway gates and matching pedestrian gate have been manufactured in the metal slat gate design and powder coated in the dulux powder coat colour Hawthorne green.
The slat design gates feature 65mm horizontal slats with 5mm gaps ensuring privacy for our clients home.
Once completed the clients were very happy with the installation which has provided them with an aesthetically pleasing automatic security driveway gate and matching side and pedestrian gates that are easy to operate and come supported with an all inclusive two year on site parts and labour warranty.
