These beautifully crafted steel inward swinging gates were commissioned on behalf of our client in Sywell, Northamptonshire, the brief was to provide very secure gates, and aesthetics was very important as well as ease of use.

The Windsor style design was part of The Gate Express range, pre assembled in the factory ready for delivery, bolted down to pre-cast foundations and commissioned within 21 days of the order placement.

Whilst the Gate Express range is no longer available we can easily replicate the same design principal of installing pre assembled gates. Of course, we can always install the same Windsor style swing gates to reinforced brick piers or standalone steel posts.

The gates are hot dip galvanised and spray painted stain black with finials and various details highlighted in Verdi Gris and gold.

This particular gate was manufactured in an extra wide 14ft width version with steel support posts, underground motors, safety photocell beams, safety loop detector, ensuring that the system is very safe to use.

Access control is via hand held transmitters, hardwired intercom and keypad. We also installed 2 no sets of large bespoke Wessex GRP Gothic style garage doors with operators, which stood side by side looking absolutely magnificent.

Overall a fantastic result was achieved, we have been very grateful for the number of referrals passed to us on the strength of this unique project.
