FAQs

Q?

Why choose Bi-fold gates over conventional swing gates?

A.

Bi-fold gates are the ideal solution for driveways which are short or sloping in such a way that it is impossible for a traditional swing gate to open inwards into the property while still allowing a vehicle to be parked in the driveway.

Q?

What style of gates are available

A.

We can manufacture nearly any style of gate that you require. Our standard gates are typically made out of aluminium with either a horizontal or vertical slat infill or using an aluminium frame with timber slats. We also offer a wide range of other options including louvers, timber pickets and steel gates.

Q?

How secure are bi-fold gates

A.

The security of your gates come down to a number of factors including the size of the gates and what form of locking mechanism is installed. We can install a number of different security solutions including mag locks, key pads and swipe access cards depending on each person’s different security needs.

Q?

How resistant to corrosion are Bi-fold Gates?

A.

Our Bi-fold gates are made using high quality materials that are resistant to the elements. Our gates are usually made using aluminium or HDG steel which is powder coated to ensure its longevity. Our Bi-fold components are all designed using a combination stainless steel and powder coated components.

Q?

What sort of warranty are Bi-fold Gates covered by?

A.

Our Bi-fold gates and motor systems are all covered by a standard 12-month warranty on parts and labour.

Q?

What maintenance is required to keep my Bi-fold gates operating like new?

A.

Just like any automatic gate it is important to keep the gates clean and free from any obstructions. With Bi-fold gates it is also important to keep the chain system lubricated.

Q?

How long does it take for Bi-fold gates to be installed?

A.

Typically, our gates take between 3 and 4 weeks to be manufactured from the time we come onsite to conduct our final measure. After this the installation of the gates normally takes between 1 – 2 days depending on the size of the job. Please note that these times are an indication only and may be extended during periods of high demand.
