Many of us love the quiet joy of being able to open our gates automatically in the rain with out getting wet. For one customer the threat of rain was much greater than the inconvenience of a light shower.

Flooding is becoming an increasingly big problem in the UK. It never seems to be out of the national news for long, and is often on the mind of local councils too. This customer embraced the very real possibility of flooding along their driveway so we worked with our customer to create a gate that would be able to with stand the rising waters.

This sliding gate has the motor above the anticipated flood level in order to avoid water damage. The metal frame of the gate is strong enough to with stand any water pressure without warping. The wooden panel design provides a pleasing contemporary design while allowing water to flow through the gate when required.

The careful planning and design of this gate will allow it work seamlessly in all weather for years to come.
