Once a driveway gate is fitted it becomes the first line of defence against intrusion and is a huge deterrent to thieves and trespassers as they have first have to deal with it before even getting near to your actual home.

It also prevents unauthorised vehicle access to your property, making burglary hugely inconvenient.


Another critical function of a driveway is strictly controlling who can access your property: preventing parking or use of your property from any vehicle not belonging to the household or granted permission to enter.

We're also a specialist in access control systems and can fit a range of options including audio intercoms, video intercoms, wireless entry and mobile phone intercom and access.

Our gates also increase privacy by blocking the view of your property from the road. Our driveway gates are available in a variety of styles, with some of the solid styles completely blocking sightlines through them.
