Common question about
driveway gates

  • How much does a driveway gate cost?

    The cost of driveway gates depends on the type of material, mode of automation and difficulty in installation. You can get a rough estimate of how much it would cost for a driveway gate using our online gate cost calculator tool
  • Does electric gate add value to your property?

    In terms of increasing the value of your property, when or if you come to sell your house the added security of automated gates can be a great selling point and add up to 5% extra value to your home.
  • Do you need planning permission for an electric gate?

    You will need to apply for planning permission if you wish to erect or add to a fence, wall or gate if:
    - It would be over one metre high and next to a highway used by vehicles (or the footpath of such a highway); or over two metres high elsewhere; or
    -Your right to put up or alter fences, walls and gates is removed by an article 4 direction or a planning condition; or
    -Your house is a listed building or in the curtilage of a listed building
    -The fence, wall or gate, or any other boundary involved, forms a boundary with a neighbouring listed building or its curtilage
  • Can I automate my gates?

    Yes, it is possible to automate existing gates in most cases. Gate automation does place additional stress across the gate, so taking an expert advise would be ideal
  • Can electric gates be opened manually?

    Manual key release mechanism is used in most cases. The manual release key is usually inserted into the appropriate lock on the motor housing, then a lever or handle is operated to disconnect the motor drive from the gate opening arms, gears and shafts.
  • How wide can a swing gate be?

    Generally, 2.5m but depends on the height and weight of the gate too.
  • What is a double swing gate?

    Double swing gates consist of two leafs that open and close.
  • Is sliding gate better than swing gate?

    Swing gates are the most common type of gate used for domestic properties. Bi-Parting swing gates take up less driveway space than a single gate and are recommended for driveways that are over 5.5m wide. Typically, swing gates open inwards towards the property but if the driveway slopes or curves sharply, you need to consider other models. If both a swing or a sliding gate are feasible, a swing gate is generally recommended as they are prettier and less expensive than sliding gates.

With our bespoke metal driveway gates you are ensured to add a traditional, contemporary or classic touch to your entrance with nearly no maintenance cost. Contact us for a bespoke gate installation survey.
