Green Aluminium gates

Aluminium gates installed in Cornwall, complete with underground automation and GSM intercom. Matching pedestrian gate.

Nice thing about the aluminium is that it maintenance free. 10-year warranty on the surface finish and they look  like painted timber gates!! Smart.

Softwood Sliding gate on steel frame in Plymouth

We’ve recently completed this softwood sliding gate in Plympton, Plymouth. The customer wanted a strong maintenance free timber gate, so we made it on a galvanised steel frame and clad it on both sides with softwood tanalised timbers.

We’ve used the BFT 24V sliding motor system with nylon rack. Its all very safe and compliant with current legislation.

Iroko hardwood sliding gate at Mylor, Falmouth in Cornwall.

The previous gates were timber swing gates, which limited the amount of parking as they swung open.

Hey presto!!! problem solved with these fantastic Iroko hardwood, automatic sliding gate with intercom system.

Because of the size of the gate it had to be clad onto a steel frame. When the steel frame is clad both sides, its no longer visible, and does its job perfectly on the inside.

Because of the weight of the gate, we had to crane the gate into position.

I think you’ll agree, the finished gate looks amazing. Its been correctly specified and installed. This will give the customer many, many years of trouble free operation.

Markilux 990 patio awning installed in Devoran

We’ve just installed this Markilux 990 awning in Devoran. We have to manufacture special brackets to reach around the fascia and gutter to keep the awning at the right height for proper use.

Now for some sunshine please Mr Weatherman!!!

Remote control bollards

We’ve just installed some BFT Stoppy bollards in Liskeard. They are remote controlled for ease of use. We have an induction loop installed under the brick paving to stop them coming up when there are vehicles present.

Our customer came to us for a solution. He was getting fed up of people turning in his drive, and he wanted us to stop them, this should do the trick alright.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition

We’ve just installed an ANPR system along with new barriers at Monkey Tree Holiday Park in Newquay, Cornwall.

When visitors arrive, they check in at reception where their number plate is added to the Paxton access control system. Then all they have to do is drive up to the barrier where it opens automatically and grants access to the park.

The barriers have boom lights, that show red when they are down. Flashing red during opening, then solid green when the barrier is open and its safe to pass through.

Nice and easy to administer, no tokens, pins or cards to give out. Very secure. User friendly for the guests. Simples.

Stainless Steel Sliding Automated Gate in St Ives

Here are some pics of a new stainless steel sliding gate installed at Salt, a newly developed apartment block in St Ives, Cornwall.

Its an unusual one with the gate sliding on the outside of the property as there is limited parking space inside.

The gate is powered coated in a  special colour and made with a special perforated design.

We have also installed a manual pedestrian gate with stainless steel gas strut and magnetic locking.

Newly installed Hormann ALR Vitraplan Sectional Garage door in Truro

We have recently installed this Hormann ALR Vitraplan sectional garage door in Truro, Cornwall.

The residents were getting fed up with old sliding gate that had become unsafe, noisy and unappealing from the kerb side.

The new door that has recently been installed certainly looks the part, one of the nicest looking doors we’ve installed. Its super safe and fully compliant with the current legislation, almost silent in operation! We’ve installed keypads to both side for pedestrians, remote controls for vehicles and an over height shut down system.

Review from Ann Clayton (Director) “We approached SWGD approximately two years ago with a view to upgrading our existing sliding gate which was no longer compliant. As we are a small residential block of flats we had many hurdles to overcome, yet each one was resolved over time to everyone’s satisfaction. We were given various options to consider by SWGD and throughout the two years, they maintained a very professional approach. The end result is fantastic. The gate compliments the building and all residents are delighted. We would certainly recommend anyone to consider SWGD.”
