Electric Gates Essex
Here is a recent electric gate installation of a carriage driveway in Essex. Universe Gates enjoys unrivalled reputation throughout the South East for quality and precision in luxury gate making.
As the brick piers were already under construction by others – The larger (main) opening was almost 5000mm wide (the smaller 3500mm) therefore we had to formulate a design that worked equally well on both entrances and framed the brick piers without dominating them.
Designing gates that work well on piers that reduce in size is tricky due to side gaps being larger at the top than the bottom (bell core). Therefore David Viera- Project Director designed gates that offered both a horizontal bar so the gates would fully opening without touching the pier caps, and also rise in the middle creating a subtle curve which gave the whole entrance a nice balance and a striking visual identity. Attention to detail was placed on the hinge positions to avoid the stone work and the end scrolls were custom made to sit exactly within the curvature of the pier caps which also to the eye subtly reduced the side gap. Further subtle skillfully crafted details were designed into the gates such a shadow bar at the top of the gates, custom made finials and even the slam plate was reversed to give a better aesthetic balance from from the front our mission is to create a symphony of precision.
The gates were hot zinc sprayed and powder coated in a special silk matt finish. Hydraulic underground motors were chosen due to there faster operating speed and more powerful capabilities. We design and build gate systems to last for 20 years +
This electric gates installation project in Essex was carried out in tandem with the next door neighbour the case study can be found here-
Price guide- both entrances £19,000
