Why Choose 1st Choice Electric Gate Installers in London?

One thing the 1st Choice team enjoys about being electric gate installers is the fact that every job is unique. For nearly two decades now, we’ve been fitting electric gates in London. Every client we’ve encountered has had their own reasons for wanting automatic driveway gates, ranging from keeping muntjacs at bay, to waging war on doorstep scammers. And every property requires careful tailoring when fitting gates, and bespoke finishing or design.

Security Trained Electric Gate Installers

Security of your property may not be the primary reason for installing electric gates, but it’s a useful by-product. The police recommend automatic gates as a powerful disincentive for opportunist burglars. You can also put paid to scammers and unsolicited callers by checking their identity before granting entry.

1st Choice Security Systems installers offer a free security audit as part of the gate installation process. This allows us to assess your existing security arrangement, and determine where your property’s vulnerabilities are. Then we’ll make a number of recommendations, which may include a door entry system for your electric gates, or integrated CCTV.

Bespoke Electric Gates in London

Occasionally we encounter a property in London with a drive that allows for a standard installation. More often, though, gates need to be bespoke to take into account shallow driveways, inclines, or a narrow opening. In order to accommodate a range of driveways, we provide:

  • Swing Gates. These traditional gates are ideal for driveways with a depth of access that can accommodate the arc of the gate.
  • Sliding Gates. For shallow driveways, or ones that feature a natural incline. The gates slide into place on a track which extends laterally across the driveway.
  • Folding Gates. This elegant and innovative design is used for small driveways where there is insufficient space to slide or swing full size gates.

Individually Designed Electric Gates

1st Choice electric gates are as individual as the properties they enhance. Our designers will work with you to develop a unique design in the material you choose. Recently we’ve created automatic gates in wood, steel and wrought iron for properties across the capital city. Your gates can be finished in colours that match the exterior aesthetic of your home.

Electric Gate Repairs in London

Our skilled and experienced installers guarantee durable, high performance gates for customers. In order to keep them at peak condition, we always recommend an ongoing maintenance and repairs package.
