Hampton Style Automatic Rising Gates

Challenges involved in the project

  • The Hampton Style Automatic rising gates were to open inwards away from the street frontage and up a steeply sloped driveway.
  • The gates were required to open at different angles to one another and to open into different positions to maximize small parking area. This required modifications to the articulated arms on the motors, using an articulated arm with ball joint so the gate would pivot as it opened.
  • The client did not want a floor mounted stop and so a very strong magnetic latch was used to lock the gates in a closed position with a custom made mounting frame to ensure the gates did not disengage with pressure such as wind. The gates were then designed to self close and required safety beams in strategic positions to enable proper function.
  • The clients design guidance was very minimal with a Hampton style, double opening gate requested. The gate was designed from scratch. The client further required the automation have the capacity to link into their existing security system.
  • We worked closely with other trades to ensure that conduit and cable locations were properly located and installed beneath concrete which was being poured.

Products used on the project

  • In house designed and fabricated aluminium double gates (at our workshop in Ballina). Locally powder coated. BFT Italian Made Automation system with photo cells and with rising gate hinges.

Outcome of the project

Well designed, manufactured and installed project meeting and exceeding the clients expectations. The gates provided the security required while maximizing the usable driveway area.

We have installed a few of these gates

Hampton Style Gates by Northern Rivers Fencing in West Ballina, NSW.

Challenges involved in the project

  • Clients were not yet living at the property so a lot of over the phone and video calls. We also had difficulties with neighbouring properties due to boundary line disputes.
  • Conduits needed to be run with no access to roof cavities in the house, under gardens, and the video intercom placement was only able to be placed on a wall which the owner had specifically dedicated to a painting which could go no where else! A new location was found after much deliberation and by employing slimline conduits running below.

Products used on the project

  • Aluminium custom designed and made swinging gates
  • BFT Automation including video intercom

Outcome of the project

  • Stylish and functional Hampton Style Entry Gates.
  • When I went back to the property to take pictures, the clients arrived home and told me how much they love their gates and that the installation was just right that their miniature pooches couldn’t escape.
