Q: If someone were to be caught in the gates would they be crushed?
A: No, Wentworth always set the torque (the closing strength) to the manufacturers’ recommended safety Standards. Automatic gates are extremely safe if installed and configured properly from the outset.
A: This will vary tremendously but usually installations begin at around £5,000, going up to as much as you want to spend.
A: Not at all, we are very happy to undertake the work a bit at a time if it helps from a budgeting point of view.
A: Yes, we are more than happy, however we would highly recommend that we are involved in that process, so as to give best advice.
A: Yes, we have a partnership with specialist ground workers and bricklayers of the highest quality.
A: In many instances you can, but this is on a case by case basis so please seek our advice first so that we can establish reusability or otherwise.
A: Yes, we are approved members of CHAS, Construction Line, Safe Contractor and NICEIC. Please click on our pedigree to see our accreditations which will help you decide with confidence.
A: This will of course depend upon which gates you choose, but if purchasing mainly for security purposes, we would highlty recommend surveillance cameras as part of the solution.
A: 30 to 80 Metres is standard with these systems, although the actual distance may vary slightly depending on the environment.
A: All systems have a manual overide. These vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
A: Yes, ‘close board’ gates can be effected by the wind and we would only recommend using them in sheltered areas.
A: Usually no, but it is always worth calling your local planning office first. Wentworth accepts no responsibility for matters concerning the Highways Agency and or planning but we are happy to assist in every way possible in the matter.
A: Wentworth look after gates no matter what the manufacturer or who installed the gates. However, a survey would need to be carried out prior to gates being considered for a Maintenance Contract.
A: Like a car, well maintained gates can go wrong, even if only occassionally, and with parts generally being quite expensive, having a Maintenance Contract can not only save you money, but give you peace of mind.
