Gates & Automatic Gates

LCS Gates & Barriers can provide all types of gates and Automatic Gates. Whether you are looking for Steel, Aluminium or Timber. Or even a mixture of both.

We only use the highest quality gate and Automatic Gate manufacturers to manufacture all of the gates we install.

The final design of your Gate is a very individual thing. Some people require gates for privacy, some for security, some to keep the dog in or even wildlife out. Dependent on your specific requirements the design and automation used will change. This means that every system is one of a kind and very specific to you.

If you need additional information on options, please get in touch with us today.

Steel & Aluminium Gates

We offer a large range of gate designs within our Steel and Aluminium Gate ranges. Our Steel Gates are bespoke manufactured by a company who work specifically on gates and have many years of experience including automation of Gates. This means that they are manufactured to a higher specification and specifically designed for automation.

Aluminium Gates are a bit more of a new thing to the UK but becoming more and more specified. We have access to Aluminium Gate manufacturers who can provide gates in many styles of swing and sliding configuration. Aluminium Gates provide a lighter gate option with a finish that will be good for years.

LSC Gates & Barriers have installed multiple Aluminium Gates over our time in the industry. This puts us in a better place than most installers as our experience is second to none.

Let's talk

Timber Gates

Timber Gates can be automated using the correct equipment but they do need to be designed correctly for automation purposes. LCS have access to many manufacturers of timber gates all of whom make great gates. Depending on your specific requirements will decide where we purchase your Gates from.

Timber Gates are a "live" thing and they do expand and contract during the seasons. Ideally, we recommend that all gates are manufactured from hard wood to keep this movement to a minimum. Our preference being Iroko hard wood giving a beautiful finish. We also recommend that the gates are finished with an oil. This is the easiest way to keep them looking great and takes much less time to refinish at a later date. There are however many other options for finish which can be completed.

Other hardwood Timber is available should you decide that you want to paint the gates. Ask us about options when we complete the site survey for your installation.

Safety Requirements

Safety of all automated systems is paramount. With specific legislations in place that are the law to follow. We use many different types of safety device to provide full compliance. We need access to all manufacturers of safety equipment to ensure that our installations are as safe as possible.

Some of these safety devices are listed below with further information.

Safety Beams

Safety beams are a single beam device which is usually used across the outside of the system. They are a non-contact device but provide minimal protection. They are the minimum requirement when used in conjunction with force limitation, subject to there being no additional residual risk areas. Safety beams are a non-contact safety device.

Safety Edges

Safety edges are black rubber contact strips which are available in a multitude of sizes. These contact strips use a resistive strip internally which wires back to a specific controller and then subsequently your control board. These safety edges cause the system to reverse direction on contact. The whole of the safety edge system needs to be tested to ensure that it is category 3 compliant (constantly tested) or category 2 (tested before use). Safety edges are a contact safety device.

Light Curtains

Light curtains work in a similar way to the safety beam listed above. The big difference is that they project many beams across the entrance. This means that an object is impossible to miss. They can be used to protect areas of risk on sliding gates and are extremely useful when used in front of railings. Installation between the gate and railings protects against the shearing risk between them and is not visible.

Light curtains are a non-contact safety device.

Lasers

Lasers are one of the latest devices to come into the industry. They are fitted in a high location on the gate and send out three curtains from a specific position. The laser then picks up any object which enters the curtains causing the system to stop or reverse dependent on how it is set up. They protect from ground level up to the installed height of the unit. Once set up the prevent any objects coming into contact with the moving gate.

Lasers are a non-contact safety device.

Additional advice

Safety is never as easy as just installing your system with all the above products. A risk assessment is required for every installation and that risk assessment helps to decide which safety devices are required, and most suitable for the installation. Obviously the more electronic safety devices fitted to a system, the more chance of failure it has. Correct specification and installation can prevent years of frustrations with a non-working system. Force testing must be completed on all new installations and if the install has been completed from the ground up a certificate of conformity must be provided. For more information please take a look at the following websites for more information. LCS Gates and barriers are members of, and conform with The Door and Hardware Association, Gate-safe and Came safe. Please click on the links below to find out additional information.

Installation

LCS Gates & Barriers Ltd can offer a full installation service for Telguard products. We are proud to offer a fully UK manufactured product finished in marine grade stainless steel to look great and have a two-year warranty.

Benefits

Having a Telguard installed on your entrance provides you with an intercom that can contact you anywhere. The system uses a GSM sim card allowing the unit to call any pre programmed phone number. One call button can be programmed to call consecutive numbers. This means it can call your property landline and if not answered it can then call mobile phone 1, mobile phone 2 etc until the call is answered. Please note that any call received by an answerphone will be classed as completed and not forward to the next number.

The latest Telguard units have additional features such as the built in timer, backlit buttons, SMS alerts, additional relay outputs and dial to open. The dial to open feature means that pre programmed phone numbers are set up and when they call the units phone number a specific relay is triggered. The call to the unit is cut off once the system is triggered and no costs are charged to the caller.

Additional features are available on the latest range of Telguards. Please ask for more information and feel free to ask for things not currently available. The programming and set up of these units can be changed and we are always looking to feed back good ideas to the manufacturer.

Telguard options

Telguards come in many different styles dependent on the requirements of the site. With twelve different telephone based versions along with the Telpad keypad, wireless one to one and GSM Dialler there is an option for every situation.

Repairs and Upgrades

Telguard has been around since 1992 and there are many older units still in use on sites. These units need to be upgraded to ensure that they can continue to be programmed. In cases of older units, it may be possible to replace the internal components to allow the system to be upgraded. In other cases the complete unit may need to be replaced. The final decision on what can be done is always dependent on the age of the unit and its design.

LCS Gates & Barriers Ltd can provide a repair service for any issues that occurs with your Telguard

Programming

Programming changes can be made in a selection of different ways.

End users with units of up to ten call points (buttons) can make changes to call points and codes using a mobile phone and tablet application. For systems with more than ten call points end users can make changes by use of text messages sent to the unit.

LCS are able to offer an onsite programming service to make any changes required.

Off site programming can also be completed using the incoming phone line to the unit. This can be completed within 24 to 48 hours of request.

Warranty

As standard all Telguard units come complete with a two year manufacturers warranty. This includes any programming changes.

The warranty can be extended after the original two years. Details and costs for extending the warranty are provided once the original warranty comes to an end.
