Metal electric gates are a popular choice for both residential properties and commercial properties alike. Estate gates are often seen in various metal designs and structures also. Both steel electric gates and aluminium electric gates can be an excellent gate solution providing the sought after security, privacy and kerb appeal.
Regardless of the material you choose for your automated gate, these are the general points for consideration when making your choice. Our expert advisers are available to help you navigate the many options available, but we shall take a look at how metal gates meet each of these criteria points.
Metal electric gates can be made using aluminium or steel. You’ve probably heard of wrought iron gates but actually, today’s modern metal electric gates are made from aluminium, steel or occasionally cast iron.
Metal electric gates come in a variety of shapes, sizes and appearances. The choices you make will largely depend on personal preference. Metal electric gates come in various colours including grey, black and white. We also offer bespoke options, so if you have something specific in mind, all you need to do is ask. If it exists, we can likely accommodate your colour preferences.
In addition to the various colours, shapes and sizes, there are some other custom design steps that can be added when creating the perfect metal electric gate for you. Whether it’s an aluminium electric gate, steel electric gate, residential, commercial or estate gates.
You can add a personal touch by adding the property or premises name to the gate; you’d just need to let us know in advance and leave the rest to us. More detailed customising options are also available in the form of laser etching.
