The manufacturing and installation process
At Guardian gates we make all of our gates in house to the customers bespoke requirements.
Pictured is a typical sliding gate.
This particular gate is 3.4 m long by 2m high made from iroko wood (west african wood renowned for its durability and lack of expansion and contraction) and steel framework. The colour is anthracite grey.
As well as manufacturing the gate we made two pedestrian gates to match.
Hybrid iron & wooden gates
Pictured is a bespoke set of iron gates with hardwood cladding and additional side gate. Part of the process on these particular gates entailed building of brick pillars to hang the gates. All of the build is done in house so the completion isn't compromised via subcontractor works.
Iron gates by nature can be moulded to suit your imagination. So if you have ideas we can bring them to life such as these glorious gates .
The design process:
As with anything in life there is a beginning and an end.
Initially we will discuss your specific requirements to build a picture of the system that best suits your needs, dreams and budget.
You will need to start thinking about:
The material you would like the gate to be made from - wood/iron/aluminium
The type of automation you would want - under ground motors, swing arm motors etc.
What type of lighting you would like - LED, motion sensor etc.
The style of Pillars/Posts
We can help with all of this as we have over 20 years installation and design expertise.
At Guardian Gates we design and automate a system to fully suit your requirements.
If you can visualise your dream gates we can bring that to life, which will not only enhance your property but add value to your property.
