​Things to Consider


Contemplating a custom built gate for your property? Take a few minutes to consider these details:

  • Are posts required or use existing?
  • Preferred post option (see 3 choices above)
  • Are there adjacent fences to be tied into?
  • Electrical requirements for operators: 110 or solar?
  • Single swing, double swing, or slide gates?
  • Trenching is required for swing gates with dual operators (asphalt/concrete may need to be cut)
  • Location: make sure you allow clearance for turning trailers, RVs, equipment, etc

Construction


Our gates are created with you in mind. Each gate is designed according to the look and functionality you desire. They are constructed of aluminum materials and can incorporate a variety of horizontal, vertical, curved, symmetric, asymmetric, and other designs. View our photo gallery for an idea of the variety of design options.


Each gate is completed with a custom powder coating finish of your choice. We coordinate the powder coating with Synergy Coatings in Leduc, Alberta. They offer endless colour possibilities and many textures to ensure the appearance matches the existing features on your home or business.


We use multiple screw piles (steel) for a foundation that comes complete with concrete pile caps. This provides you with adjustability, concealed and protected electrical rough-ins, finished base ready for landscaping tie-ins and years of maintenance free accessibility.


There are three options for posts (view photo gallery for more images). All three post options come with adjustable gate and operator mounts as well as colour matched equipment/accessory mounts. Access panels are available for the 16" posts only.


  1. TIMBER: 12" square solid timber posts complete with heavy duty steel strap brackets (powder coated)
  2. STEEL: 6" hollow square steel posts (powder coated) that conceal and protect all required wiring
  3. STONE COLUMN: 20" square columns finished with elegant panelized stone siding available in multiple textures and colours; columns can also be finished with options such as siding, stucco, brick, rock, etc; interior of column is accessible for modifications or adjustments through colour matched access panels

​Accessibility


Automatic openers provide convenience and functionality. We use LiftMaster operators to ensure long term use in the wide variety of temperatures and weather conditions we see in Alberta. Depending on gate size, weight, wind exposure, power supply and other factors, we will fit your swing gate system with either LiftMaster LA 500, LA 400, or LA 412 operator. Slide gate systems are also available using LiftMaster RSL 12U or CSL 24U.


Your gate can be operated with garage door style remote controls, key pads, key cards, exit wands or proximity readers for additional access, egress and security. Vehicles with Home Link built in can be programmed to run the gates as well. Through the LiftMaster MyQ app, you can operate your gate from your mobile device from anywhere with WiFi or cell phone signal. The app allows notifications of gate movement, pre-set schedules, granting access to additional users, and more.


Depending on your needs, we can ensure easy and convenient access for yourself, family members, maintenance personnel, employees, and others.
