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