Sliding & Retractable Gates
Electric sliding gates are an ideal alternative in situations where space is less abundant or where the driveway of the property is on an upwards incline, preventing the gates from opening against the higher ground towards the property.
As is the case with wrought iron swing gates, the design flexibility of wrought iron provides endless possibilities for the gate maker to meet the exact design requirements of any home owner.
Many residential properties have gates on their driveway that are almost always left open simply because it can be a hassle to get out of the car to open and close them. It goes without saying that an open gate is not a gate! Installing electric gates solves this problem, by making it as easy as a touch of a button to open and close your gates.
Wide ranges of different construction materials, gate designs and different automation technology are available to provide the security that everyone is looking for.
Ideal for commercial and domestic applications, A&A retractable gates are well suited to resisting intruders when a building is empty. Retractable gates (also known as sliding gates), folding gates, collapsible gates and concertina gates, slide neatly to one side behind the curtains when not required. We can offer a full supply and installation of retractable gates service or we can supply the goods only, whichever best suits your needs.
These steel collapsible gates allow vision and air flow and mean that you can leave a room safely unattended with windows open in the summer. Retractable gates need no maintenance and are easy to install, with minimum side bunching and only a very small amount of headroom required. They are usually installed internally with minimum disruption, so planning permission is not generally required.
Retractable gates are steadily increasing in popularity. They are sometimes also referred to as expanding gates, lattice gates, collapsible grilles or lattice grilles.
