We have grown predominantly through recommendation, and have developed a fantastic reputation for originality, service and top quality craftsmanship.
As our name suggests, our mainstay is gates. Beautifully handmade, most of our gates are designed and built specially for the individual location in mind. From small pedestrian gates to fully automated security systems, we use existing architectural features to design gates that truly complement their surroundings.
But it doesn't stop at gates! We are skilled craftsmen with many years experience of building all manner of decorative and functional metalwork products, including railings, ornamental bridges, balconies, fire escapes and more. Whatever it is, if you want one made of metal – we can design and handcraft it for you!
Gates can be supplied for either manual or automated use.
For manual use a variety of locking devices can be fitted, including keyed locks, electronic entry systems or standard latches.
For automated use we supply and fit both underground and above ground automation fitted with a variety of safety features such as safety edges, safety cells and induction loops, as required. Entry can be effected using a wide variety of methods from intercoms, induction loops or digipads etc.
In addition we also automate existing gates and undertake insurance repair work.
All our gates are galvanized and painted our standard black hammer finish. Unless you require a specific colour, which we can accommodate using any RAL number.
Zinc metal sprayed for delicate designed gates and then finished as the standard finish above.
Our standard finish is primer painted using high build zinc phosphate and top coated with a black hammer effect.
‘Start to Finish’
At First Choice Gates we offer a start to finish package including an initial site risk assessment on all automatic gate installations to assess health and safety considerations.
All new automatic gates systems in the UK should comply to BS-EN13241-1 and EN-138491-1 safety standards.
We can discuss and suggest a design of gates which can enhance the front of your property and compliment any architectural features.
Our services offer either steel post installation, or using existing brick piers/posts if suitable. We undertake ground work relating to automatic gates, ie motor boxes, and cable routing as well as entrance and exit loops, if required. We are also used to working around other trades.
Finally to complement our high quality workmanship a range of aftercare services are available.
How We Work
Guiding You All The Way
You might want to keep up with the Jones' by having exactly what they (and everybody else) has. But then again you might want the luxury of being guided through a unique design experience where your gate or other ornamental feature is personally crafted just for you – all for much less than you might think.
The first step is to contact us and chat through what it is you’re looking for. Right from your first enquiry, you will speak directly with a knowledgeable, experienced designer and craftsman with a passion for creating from metal.
Easy Process of Getting the right gate for your property
If you have dimensions and some idea of what you want, the more information you can send us, such as emailing a photo of the front of your property or your address so that we can view on google and an image of a particular style of gate you have in mind, we can then offer a design of gate for your consideration. A site visit can then be arranged and if automatic gates are desired then a site risk assessment will be carried out.
At the visit, our designer will carefully consider the style, shapes, contours and other features of the proposed environment and produce a rough sketch. He will then work with you, over a period of time, to hone and fine tune the design until you are absolutely happy that it fulfils your needs and reflects the style and personality of your environment.
Committed to Absolute Satisfaction
All our work is of a high quality using appropriate thickness of steel to achieve a heavy look to our design of gates in keeping to scale, particularity when manufacturing the timber styled gates.
Also we keep to a minimum the overall weight to maintain a safe operation for both manual and automatic installations.
