How is the automation system installed?

There are two options available, either of which can be used for both swing and sliding gates:


Above Ground System

The more cost-effective option of the two, above ground systems require less time and equipment, and are fully visible.

EM 39.2

Below Ground System

If you are looking for a seamless finish to your gates, the below ground system may be the best option. The larger amount of work required compared to an above ground system does increase the cost, but with this comes an increased aesthetic quality to your property.

Success Stories


“We used Charnwood Gates for a client of ours who required repairs to be carried out on his automatic gates and fence around his premises. From initial consultation to the works being carried out Lloyd and his team were extremely helpful. The work carried out was to a very high standard with the site being left clean and tidy once finished. Lloyds knowledge and eye for detail was invaluable and guided us through every step with ease. Will be recommending to more of our clients in the future. Top job!”

“We had an ongoing problem with our electric gates that other companies were unable to rectify. We contacted Charnwood Gates after a recommendation from a family member and they sorted the issue out very quickly. We would highly recommend Charnwood Gates to friends and family.”

“Charnwood Gates replaced the automation on our gates in a professional and efficient manner. Throughout the upgrade the work was tidy and professionally handled. Lloyd is clearly very experienced and methodical in how he operates. On completion, he explained the operation of the system and the advantages of routine servicing to maintain operational standards. He was happy to provide the current service costs.
A thoroughly pleasant and professional transaction. I would be happy to recommend that anyone looking gate automation should seriously consider Charnwood Gates.”

Gate Safety

Here at Charnwood Gates we take safety very seriously.

All new installations will comply with the current EN Guidelines and will be given a CE marked sticker to prove this standard.

We will also fill out a conformity of declaration form with the gate’s information. We can carry out Health and Safety assessments on your current gates

and advise on, and carry out, any essential maintenance needed.

We also install the essential safety measures required to protect persons and vehicles around gates and barriers, such as safety photocells or compressible rubber safety ribs to prevent injury.
