If you are looking for something special, perhaps a treat for yourself or a gate to enhance the immediate visual surroundings, wooden gates are the gates for you. Our gallery shows only a select range of gate designs available so please contact us for more examples.
As well as manufacturing and installing new gates, it is often viable to add electric automation systems existing wooden gates - so long as they are in good condition and have been manufactured correctly - please contact us to arrange for a free site survey.
Each wooden gate AGD Systems supplies and installs are manufactured to the highest standards possible using traditional handmade construction methods by some of the most skilled craftsmen in the UK. And because each door is handmade, they can be custom built to meet your specific needs - this includes a choice of colours or oil finishes. We supply both contemporary and traditional designs; if you have something special in mind, don't hesitate to ask - we specialise in bespoke designs!
We offer numerous different wood species, including the following:
- West African Mahogany
- Iroko hardwood
- Scandinavian Redwood
We usually recommend hardwood for electric gate systems as this sturdy wood works best in providing a strong level of stability, effective impediment against rot and overall longevity when regularly and properly maintained.
However, we have been able to automate better quality softwood gates which have been constructed using good manufacturing methods and have been suitably finished stained.
Various finish treatments are available. Two or three coats of good quality finish stains such as Sikkens or Sadolin are usually used, but alternatively we can apply an oiled finish such as Danish, Tung or Teak Oil. Special colours are available upon request, however you will need to supply the RAL or BS colour reference number and description.
All gates are subject to wind loading to a lesser or greater extent. Large solid boarded wooden gates can be adversely affected to high wind conditions especially in very exposed locations.
Wooden gates are available in the Gate Express system. Gate Express is a unique 21 day to installation process from AGD Systems. Click here to view Gate Express.
