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.

BFT Ares 1000kg sliding gate motor, fully compliant and CE marked.

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.”
