At Pauls Gates we offer various types of Automation namely gate and garage automation:

Gate Automation

We can help you find the most suitable and cost effective gates for your property. For home owners, the best automated gates are those that swing or slide.

Swing gates operate by opening one or two gates into or away from the property. Perfect for properties with limited space or driveways on a slope. Automated swing gates also tend to be quieter than say sliding gates and generally require less maintenance than sliding gates. Swinging gates can certainly add to the appeal of any property but may not suit everyone. If for example you live in a high wind area you may want to consider sliding gates if space allows.

Other factors that may influence your decision when deciding on the type of gates to suit your property and lifestyle is the size of your property, the slope of your land, safety concerns and noise.

Here at Pauls Gates we like to help so please feel free to ask us for advice on what your options are and what might work best for you. As we manufacture as well as install and maintain existing gates you can feel comfortable knowing you are teaming up with industry leaders and qualified tradespeople.

Automated sliding gates can slide to the left or right with either a tracked installation (where the gate slides on a metal rail with roller wheels) or a cantilever system, where the gate is suspended over the entrance. Cantilever gates typically require less maintenance than a tracked sliding gate.

There are two main types of automated openers for your gate. A swing or sliding gate opener is easily installed and simple to use and come in pre-packaged kits for the ultimate ease of use. Underground automatic gate opener: for a more discreet alternative to traditional electric gate opener systems, Pauls Gates range of hidden underground openers offer superior quality and convenience.

Garage Automation

Automated garage doors do not only make your life a lot easier and saves you time, but is also more secure.

The installation of automatic garage doors is a precise and difficult job that should only be carried out by team of professional garage door installers. A garage door, once installed, will be the largest door in your home, and merely manipulating it into the correct position is not only difficult, but can also be dangerous.

The installation is not a job that can easily or safely be carried out by the average DIY enthusiast, even if he considers himself an expert. An automated garage door, because of the need for the motor to be so precisely aligned, requires much more accurate work in order to ensure the correct working of the finished product.
