Looking for a Driveway Gate Installer in Kensington, London?

1st Choice Security Systems has a reputation for installing residential electric gates that are both aesthetically pleasing and secure. As an experienced driveway gate installer in Kensington, we also have a detailed understanding of the challenges a property in town can present for electric gate installation. Which is why every 1st Choice driveway gate is bespoke.

Here’s our 5-step process to ensure your driveway gates look good and fit perfectly:

  1. Free Security Audit. Our SSAIB accredited engineers offer a free no obligation audit in order to provide gates that offer effective and efficient security.
  2. Physical Audit. Every driveway is different, which is why our gate designs are tailored specifically to your driveway dimensions.
  3. Swing or Slide Gate? This will be determined in part by the depth of your driveway and whether or not it’s on an incline.
  4. Design Decisions. We offer custom designs in wood, wrought iron, steel or aluminium.
  5. Installation. The 1st Choice team provides expert installation, including thorough testing prior to handover.

Beautiful Residential Gates for Small Driveways

Living near the centre of London can mean limited driveway space. With nearly two decades as a driveway gate installer in Kensington, we have a solution for virtually every kind of driveway we encounter. Here’s a taste of the kinds of design we can deliver:

Bi-Fold Swing Gates For Shallow Driveways

There’s something hugely welcoming about a swing gate, but they require a deep driveway to accommodate the arc of the gate. A bi-fold swing gate delivers the satisfaction of the swing welcome, without requiring the depth. The gates are hinged in the centre, so they fold into the inside panel when opening. The arc is halved so they’re perfect for shallow driveways.

Elegant Sliding Gates For Inclined Driveways

For lovers of electric gates, the swish of sliding gates is a delight. They also solve the problem of driveways that are built on an incline, or that are too shallow for swing gates. Sliding gates run on a track across your driveway and extend laterally into the space on either side. Dependent on the space available, we can install a two gate, or a one gate sliding system.

Telescopic Sliding Gates for Wide Driveways

If you’re faced with the challenge of a wide driveway and limited space for a lateral sliding track on just one side of it, 1st Choice has the answer. Telescopic swing gates use two parallel panels which slide out into the centre of your driveway. One of them continues to the farthest edge, whilst the other remains on the nearside of the driveway.
