Design brief:

As part of a new front driveway scheme, our clients required a new automated gate system to maintain security and ease of daily access to their home.

Iroko hardwood gates were designed by our design team and the fabricated at the joiners shop. The brick piers pointed in weatherstruck style matched their beautiful Sussex home, Cast stone pier caps furnished the piers and protect them from the elements for years to come.During this time our hardscape team installed the underground mot

Project Notes:

During the 1st fix, the underground automation motors were installed during the groundwork phase, together with power and communication cabling for the gate system, then the foundations and reinforced concrete piers were installed whilst the gates were being fabricated in the joiners shop.

The video intercom system was recessed into the brick piers together with a colour monitor and communication unit within the home to view all new visitors before allowing access.

A coded keypad, remote keyfobs, a vehicle sensor in the driveway and GSM technology provide opening ability from anywhere in the world, safety photocells are installed within each pier which stop the gates closing whilst pedestrian or vehicular traffic is passing through the entrance.
