Your home should feel safe. An electric gate not only looks good, but it also feels secure. An automatic gate installation gives your home an extra layer of security and adds value to your property. With a range of materials and systems to choose from, we can help you with an automated gate installation you’ll love to come home to.

We’ve been protecting access to homes and businesses for almost 50 years. From our base on the South Coast, our local electric gate installers work across Hampshire, Dorset, and Wiltshire. Our electric gate installations are done quickly and efficiently, causing minimal disruption to your home. Whether you’re looking for an electric driveway gate or a commercial electric gate, we provide automated security solutions that suit you.


Automatic sliding gates are electric, motorised gates that open and close horizontally. They’re perfect for driveways or commercial sites with wide entrances. They’re accessible and secure and as they don’t open inwards or outwards, they don’t occupy more space as they open. They work especially well in properties with limited driveway space.

Our electric gate experts can help you choose a design that’s attractive and accessible and advise on any planning and groundworks that may be required. We offer a range of materials such as metal, timber, and composite and can add any accessories you require. Speak to a member of our team to find out if an electric sliding gate is the right solution for your property.


Electric swing gates are a popular choice for homeowners. Swing gate systems work by automatically pulling and pushing the gate to open or close. They don’t require a level surface for installation which makes them perfect for properties with sloping driveways.

Our electric sliding gates are available in a range of materials, designs, and finishes and are created to suit the architectural style of your property. We can also install your electric swinging gate with accessories tailored to your needs, from automatic number plate recognition to intercom systems. To find out if an electric swinging gate is right for your home, speak to a member of our team.


Protect your business premises with a commercial electric gate installation. Our robust and efficient automated gates ensure that your staff and suppliers have easy access in and out of the building, without compromising the security of your premises. We consider the needs of your business and the space available to provide you with an electric gate installation that’s as professional-looking as it is effective.
