Electric and Automatic Sliding Gate Installation in Scotland including Glasgow and Edinburgh
There are many reasons to have Electric and Automatic Gates fitted to your property from aesthetics to security (see our “why choose” section). At A1 Automatic Gates we cater for domestic, commercial and industrial clients throughout Scotland and understand everyone is different. Choosing a system can be daunting if you have not done it before but don’t worry, we will guide you through every step of the way.
During the initial design process we will work very closely with clients to design high quality bespoke gates to match the individual clients needs from the design of the gates to the very last details. There are many factors to be taken into consideration including the type of gates, the type of design, right down to the colour of paint the client requires. At A1 Automatic Gates we make sure the process is kept nice and simple, always making sure we have the clients thoughts and requirements our number one priority, making sure the client is kept fully up to date every step of the way as the work progresses.
Our engineers will visit your property to carry out an initial site survey to determine which type of gate would be most suitable for your needs is a sliding gate kit would be used if your driveway had an excessive gradient or slope. those would allow the gate to simply slide to the left or right of the opening rather than swing open.An underground kit could be used for decorative gates where each pillar edge is fairly small so all equipment runs from underground rather than being fixed to the pillar. They would also discuss materials to be used in the build, ie metal or timber cladding (please see our “why choose” section for info on materials). At A1 we can also automate your existing gates if suitable.
At A1Automatic Gates when installing any new systems, we only use top quality world leading brands like. FAAC, and BENINCA, as there systems and innovations are far SUPERIOR to any other brands on the market. Don’t be caught SHORT when it comes to making a decision on installing automation to your gates, always ask the type of equipment you’re getting quoted for, BEWARE cheap equipment won’t last more than two years it’s a true saying ” YOU BUY CHEAP YOU BUY TWICE”.
Safety is also a major factor on the type of gates and automation designed for your property. At A1 Automatic Gates we work to strict safety standards, we pride ourselves on the latest health and Safety guidelines and thoroughly discuss safety features that are compulsory for all new works and installs, as well as for existing gates. For example, photocells are fitted to every job as standard, these automatically reverse the gate motor should it detect an obstruction. This stops children or vehicles from coming into contact with moving gates, it is also now compulsory under the machinery act to incorporate and follow these new safety guidelines and incorporate them into any works to be carried out in the automatic gate industry, here at A1 Automatic Gates this is our primary objective.
Our gate installation engineers will arrive on site fully equipped to commence work in highly stocked vans so there is no delay should an unexpected additional part be required. We also pride ourselves on tidy workmanship and our engineers with leave the site as they found it, very clean and tidy with all rubbish ie empty boxes or old equipment being removed.
