Securing homes & businesses with integrated, multi-layered systems for nearly 40 years Paul's Gates offers integrated, turnkey security and surveillance systems that dovetail high-tech access control equipment, including biometric solutions, intercoms and surveillance cameras, with mechanical barriers, such as gate automation, electric fencing and alarms, to provide multiple layers of security for residential and business sites.

Paul's Gates is a family-founded and -led business that has retained the hallmark of excellence since 1978

“Paul's Gates goes way beyond installing standalone barriers against crime,” says managing member Graham Salvado. “We design, implement and service long-term and interactive solutions that provide customers with access control management platforms that can be expanded with ease over time.

Since 1978: A foundation of family values

When it was founded in 1978 by Graham's parents, Paul and Patsy, Paul's Gates soon became known for its excellent workmanship in custom-designed wrought iron gates, burglar bars, balustrades and gate automation. Its steelwork range remains a hallmark of the business today.

As far as Paul's Gates is concerned, “There is no substitute for quality.” Paul and Patsy are still involved in the business. Graham joined Paul's Gates in 1993. His wife, Megan, is the financial director. It is their family values and personal commitment that drive the management of the company.

Both of these GSM systems eliminate the use of underground cabling between the intercom gate station and the home or business, thus reducing the risk of cabling and equipment being damaged by lightening and wear and tear. Both analogue and digital wired intercoms are available.
