Gate Express Case Study

Whatever the style of your home, Gate Express has a complementary design. Metal gates, produced from mild steel using traditional hand forged methods, are galvanised and painted for longevity. Timber gates are fashioned from long-lasting, resilient iroko hardwood. All gates are built, automated and tested at the factory.

Pedestrian gates and railings are available to accompany the range, and AGD Systems can offer details on bespoke designs.
Whether security or convenience is your priority, access control - who can enter your property, and how and when - will play an important part in your new gate system. Intercoms, radio transmitters, videos and keypads can all be combined to create the ideal system.

Shown below is a classic example of a Gate Express installation.
AGD Systems arranged the groundworks, the concrete pads and the backfilling with concrete.

Stage 1

The site is prepared for the arrival of the gates. Power cables are in place and the concrete pads are in place for the gate post to secure to.

 Stage 5

Concrete is now poured into the hole to finish the ground levels and secure everything into place.

The entire installation achieved in one morning!


 Backfilling with concrete
This particular Gate Express was ordered to have stone erected around the steel gate posts. This was carried out by the builder to finish the overall installation.




Another simple Gate Express installation next to a pedestrian path. This time tarmac was cut, concrete pads created and then once the gates were installed it was just refinishing the ground and a layer of tarmac topping put down. These particular gates were ordered with finished gate posts in black powdercoat.
