Automated Gates Explained

Working by way of a fitted motor and remote control, automated gates move when a signal is directed straight to the motor.

It’s essential to keep the area surrounding the gates clear so they can open without hindrance. Failure to ensure this may result in the motor overheating as well as the blockage in question becoming irreparably damaged. Forge The Way offers an emergency service during the evenings and weekends, should anything happen to your gates which requires our expertise.

Benefits to the Client

Automated systems are the best form of security gates available, in our opinion. Not only do they provide privacy for our Lewes and Brighton clients, unwelcome access is not possible as you control who you allow onto your property via a security switch located in your home or premises. These are usually fitted by the front door or reception area. In the event of power failure, the system can be overridden and the gates opened manually.

Types of Gates Available

Forge The Way offers three styles of automated gates to our clients, each designed to suit your personal tastes and requirements. These include:

Swing Gates

Sliding Gates

Bifold Gates

Swing Gates

Rotating to a 90° angle, swing gates will usually open inwards for convenience. Popular with residential clients, they comprise of two panels which swing open in the style of a hinged door. Our team will check the ground level to guarantee its evenness prior to installation as this is essential for the efficiency of the mechanism.

Sliding Gates

These offer a better level of security and are usually seen in commercial and industrial areas. They operate via the same motorised system as our automated gates but open horizontally by sliding on rollers behind a matching fence or existing wall. Our steel fabricators highly recommend them due to their stability and the fact they take up less space.

Bifold Gates

Similar to the swing gates Forge The Way designs and manufactures, the panels of these gates are hinged so they close in on themselves as each leaf swings open to 90°. Perfect for smaller spaces, they are also faster to open and close. Our automated gates are the smart choice for clients in Lewes, Brighton, Maidstone, Horsham, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Crawley and the surrounding areas.
