We have a huge selection of standard styles and formats and are able to create automatic gates or railings based on your individual design. An initial outline proposal would be submitted and from this the drawings, plans and design would be formulated. We are able to piece together designs, so if you have seen several different styles you like, we can put this into one unique drawing.
EDS has many years experience designing, supplying and installing hundreds of gates and matching railing and have the ability and in house skills to do the same for you.
We employ all our own craftsmen and are able to project manage the complete installation from start to finish. From speaking with our many satisfied clients they much prefer the way we do business. We give our customers full peace of mind knowing that they have only one point of contact rather than trying to organise and manage several different tradesmen who all have their own way of doing things.

Automatic Swinging Gates
Swing gates can comprise either one gate leaf or two, and can be automated on either basis. Swing gates can also open inward or inward, depending on the location, terrain and other factors. The majority of automatic swing gate systems are inward-opening twin-leaf. Twin-leaf systems have the effect of halving the area into which each gate leaf opens, thereby limiting intrusion and generally speeding up the operation of the system. Outward-opening swing gate systems are generally installed where the road or driveway inclines, sometimes quite steeply, toward the property. By opening outward, little modification in gate design is required, but consideration has to be given to the gate approach, access control and certain safety aspects. However, under certain circumstances, inward swinging gates can be designed to navigate a slope by means of special hinge arrangements, known as kicking hinges or rising hinges. Such systems can be installed where outward swinging gates are neither practical nor desirable.
Types of Automatic Swinging Gate Systems
Swing gates can be powered by essentially three types of mechanisms: underground automatic gate motors, surface automatic gate rams, or universal arms (sometimes known as Articulated or Jointed Arms), the latter two types of systems noted above are catgorised as “above ground” systems. Underground motors are often referred to as “hidden” systems, since virtually nothing is visible above ground level. With the first two types above, the drive units can be hydraulic or electo-mechanical in design. Some electro-mechanical systems operate at 240V AC, while others operate with high-efficiency low-voltage systems (typically 24V DC). Universal arms are always electro-mechanical in design.
