DIY Gate Installation
With a little effort, you may be able to find the gate automation kit you require for sale on internet sites such as eBay. You may even be able to pick up a bargain reconditioned unit and attempt to fit it yourself.
However, we strongly advise against this, unless you are a qualified electrician and have some previous experience in automating gates.
Installing electric gate equipment onto new or existing gates is not an exact science, and we recommend that it is left to the professionals.
Fill in our enquiry form today, and we will send you details of an Approved Installer in your local area. The companies in our Approved installer network have many years experience. They know about 'hinge geometry', and they are well versed in the current safety laws and machinery directives governing electric gates.
Fitting your own system may seem like the cheaper option, but could end up costing you more in the long run. Poorly commissioned systems are more prone to break down, and you could potentially damage the equipment - risking your 3-year manufacturers warranty.
Your installation company may end up charging you more to fix a 'bodge job' than they would have done to commission the system correctly in the first place.
Most professional installers will refuse to fit inferior equipment that they have not specified themselves.
Your installer is an expert, and is fully qualified to recommend the correct automation system for your particular project. Our Approved Installers are also able to purchase the equipment at trade prices, saving you money!
