Why Choose Electric Gates? 

There are several advantages to choosing electric gates for your property. 


Many want extra security for their home or commercial property without needing a staffed gate or the hassle of manual opening. Gate access control offers this control over who can enter your property without inconvenience to you, your family or your staff.

Our electric gates offer several options for opening easily. You can use a key fob, code, ID cards, buzzer entry and call button. Many businesses and homes in East Dunbartonshire use electric gates, especially for larger or more rural properties. 


It is not just security we provide with our electric gates. It is privacy too. Composite gates with wooden fronts block people outside from seeing inside your home, garden or commercial property. In recent years, residential electric gates have risen as people look to improve their comfort and privacy at home.

How much does an electric gate cost in East Dunbartonshire?

The cost of an electric gate varies enormously depending on:

  • Size of the area and height of the gate
  • Composition of the gate, steel, wood, aluminium etc.
  • Level of Automation, intercoms, ID card, key fob
  • Installation of electricity
  • You will pay around £2,500 to £3000 for a small, simple gate for a domestic property, but larger, more complex gates are closer to £6,000 or more.

It is worth opting for good quality gates and installation as cheap electric gates can fail and leave you with a high repair bill.

  • Attractive  – because we can easily tailor your gate to your requirements, we can be as creative as we like with your gates. Whatever your style, whether classic, contemporary or completely bespoke, we create beautiful gates.
  • Low maintenance – Compared to iron or wood, composite driveway gates require very little maintenance. While they still look as attractive as wood, they won’t rot or degrade. They don’t need treated like wood or have any coatings that metal gates tend to have.
  • More privacy and security – Composite gates generally don’t have gaps between the bars like traditional iron gates or wooden gates, so provide more privacy and security.
  • A long-lasting solution – incredibly strong and durable, composite gates usually consist of a metal frame with a composite or mixture of wood fibre and durable plastics.
  • Great value – composite gates can often be less expensive that fully wood or metal gates due to the price of raw materials. In addition, they last longer, giving better value for money all-round.

Types of Electric Gates We Install in East Dunbartonshire 

Composite Electrical Gates

Composite gates are growing ever more popular with those seeking privacy and security for their property in Dunbartonshire. These are electric gates that are metal in construction for security with wooden fronts to offer privacy as well. 

 Wooden fronted gates are available in various colours and styles to suit the property and neighbourhood. Add to this the fact that no one can see through them, and they make the ideal gates for driveways. 

Having automatic composite gates also means keeping them closed as much as you want. Opening is easy and secure. You can use a key fob from your car and open it from inside the house using an intercom.

Sliding Electric Gates

There are several options for how your gate opens. If your gate is on a pavement or road in East Dunbartonshire, it must either open inwards or be a sliding gate. 

 For some people, a gate opening inwards isn’t an option, so a sliding gate makes an excellent alternative. This saves space, and the effect is pleasing to the eye. 

Commercial Electric Gates

Security is important to any business in both isolated and busy areas of East Dunbartonshire. We can install a range of options in automated gates for your commercial property. 

This includes a combined security fencing and automated entry gate package. These can be made to measure and matched to keep your property secure but look smart as well. 

Automation of Existing Gates

If you have a gate you want to keep, it is possible to automate an existing gate. Many rural and urban properties in East Dunbartonshire have gates suitable for automation. 

Automatic gates make life much easier for those with driveways gates. Chances are you rarely close manual gates to a property if you use it regularly. If you do, getting in and out of your car or closing it manually when walking out is likely inconvenient. 

Automation can include the opening and closing options of your preference, including intercoms, exit sensors, ID cards and key fobs.
