All of Premier Gate Automation gates are individually measured and manufactured for your specific site requirements and Computer Aided Design (CAD) drawings which will be prepared for your approval before we start making your gates or railings.

All of our commercial electric gates are designed and manufactured with gate automation in mind and comply with current powered gate regulations and the Machinery Directive.  Premier Gate Automation have been automating commercial gates have over 25 years and are now considered as one of the most respected gate automation companies within the security industry.

Pedestrian access through a vehicular gate route should always be avoided and actively discouraged. Asking pedestrians to walk in the roadway is poor practice and may put lives at unnecessary risk. A separate pedestrian gate or path is always recommended where possible.

Premier Gate Automation clientele include an impressive list of blue chip organisations, including property developers, building contractors, schools and local authorities, as well as property managers for finest apartments and businesses in London and the South East.

Choosing the Most Suitable Gate Type for the Application


Sliding gates are very popular for a commercial environment as they are very secure and extremely reliable. If space is an issue or the roadway behind the gates is on a steep incline, an electric sliding gate is the best option. The gate runs on a base rail which must be level across the opening.  If the opening is not level, a cantilever sliding gate, which does not require a gate track, can be installed.


A cantilever sliding gate is free to slide regardless of terrain. The cantilever design means that the gate is supported from one end as it opens and closes, so there is no need for a track to be fitted across the entrance. With no track required across the gate opening, a single leaf cantilever gate can span widths of up to 10m and can be installed on uneven ground, over block-paving, grass, gravel or even water.  A cantilever sliding gate can be advantageous where the entrance slopes, busy or heavy traffic entrances or where minimal disturbance to the road surface is requested.


The swing driveway gates are generally the most popular and classic type of gate.  Aesthetically the swing gates are very pleasing and largely used for properties with a level ground area. Swing gates also work when there is enough room between the entrance and the property to accommodate the fully-open gate leaf(s).
