The Challenge

The primary challenge presented by the property was the shallow nature of the driveway. This restricted the feasibility of conventional gate solutions such as swing gates. Installing a swing gate would have encroached on the limited clearance available and potentially limit vehicle access.

To address this our team devised a gate system that maximised space efficiency while delivering optimal security and aesthetic appeal.

Our Approach

Understanding the requirements of the project, our team proposed a bespoke Iroko hardwood sliding gate integrated with a tracked system. Iroko hardwood was selected for its durability and natural beauty. This ensured that the the gate not only provided enhanced security but also complemented to property’s overall look.

The sliding gate designed allowed for horizontal movement along a discreet track. This minimised the space required and allowed to gate the slide smoothly along the hedge line. This approach not only optimised driveway space but also provided convenient access for any vehicle entering or excising the property.

Design and Installation

Our design process involved taking meticulous measurements and planning to ensure the sliding gate seamlessly integrated into the existing landscaping. This gate was custom built to fit the dimensions of the driveway.

We also installed a matching Iroko hardwood pedestrian gate adjacent to the main entrance. This maintained the uniform look and elegance of the property.

For enhanced accessibility and security, both the sliding gate and pedestrian gate were equipped with a intercom entry system. This granted convenient and secure access for residents and authorised visitors.
