Gate automation experts

GDL Automation specialises in automatic high end gates for domestic and commercial use, including security and barrier gates. Our specialist knowledge of gate automation, entry systems and CCTV security makes us the ideal partner of choice for all your automated gate requirements.


Our top of the range automated gates are made to measure and available in a wide range of designs and finishes. Our skilled engineers will manufacture your gate to the highest standard to ensure a perfect fit.
We can provide precise drawings so that you can see exactly how your finished article will look and work closely with architects and builders as well as security personnel for commercial sites.

Value for money

We offer excellent value for money without compromising on quality. Our gates are made for longevity and we use the highest quality timber and steel for all our work. We can custom make hard wood and soft wood, wrought iron and steel gates.


At GDL we offer many different ways to automate your gates, which range from remote controls to loop detectors, which can open your security gates by just driving over a specific area of ground. Security steel gates can be controlled by a wide range of access control systems including proximity card, push button, keypad, token and radio control.
We also often provide domestic gate entry systems, audio, video and coded, among many other items that can be added like extra locking, underground loops and timers etc.
Other standard features include a manual operation override facility in case of power failure and a safety edge system, to prevent the gate closing on pedestrians or vehicles.
Regardless of design or finish, all gates can be automated whether you choose a 'swing' or 'sliding' model and we can even automate existing gates for you. Even if you have no electricity supply we can either lay cable underground from the nearest source or some gate systems can be solar powered.
