High quality, BESPOKE aluminum Sliding AND SWING GateS.

Introducing Cotswold Gates, aluminum SLIDING AND SWING gates

When you think about purchasing a gate for your home, it can be a daunting process. What is a cantilever gate? What is the cost of installing an electric sliding gate? It can be a long time before you actually find a company you want to work with. 

At Cotswold Gates, we think it’s important that we get to know you, so we can provide you with a gate that suits your home and requirements. If a aluminum sliding gate is what will suit you best, then we will work with you, in order to provide you with an exceptional product you can be proud of. But we will always make suggestions on what we think would suit you, your budget, and lifestyle best. 

We want to use sustainable material where possible, and ensure you’re receiving a long-lasting, quality aluminum sliding gate you can enjoy for years to come. Which is why we don’t want to just walk away after your electric sliding gate has been installed. We provide you with an optional maintenance package, so we can ensure your aluminum sliding gate is well looked after. 

This optional package includes a health check every 12 months, and callouts at no extra charge. We will speak with you about this in more depth when we have our initial conversation, but to give you an idea we provide an enhanced platinum service for year 1 of your installation. We can then provide you with extended service contracts if you would like to continue with this service.

The features and benefits of Cotswold Gates, aluminum gate installation

 Our expertise in design and technology allows us to provide you with an exceptional sliding gate design

With our sister company, Design AV Europe, we specialise in technologies, such as security and data. Due to the technical skills and background we’ve gained through Design AV, we’re able to bring this over to Cotswold Gates, and use our innovative thinking to create spectacular sliding gate designs for our customers. 

We’re really passionate about our business, and our products, that we don’t ever want to provide you with anything less than the best. Our aluminum sliding gates are of the highest quality, using advanced technologies and imaginative designs. 

We pride ourselves on learning, and enhancing our skill sets, to ensure we’re using the latest in technology, to truly enhance your customer experience. For us, there’s no point designing a sliding aluminum gate, if you would be better suited to composite, or wooden materials. But in order for us to know what would suit you best, we have to get to know you, and your needs. 

The easiest way for us to do this is by having an initial phone call. By getting to know you, we’re in a better position to provide you with a product you’ll be happy with. It’s not up to you to come up with a sliding gate design, that’s on us. But it is important we understand your needs, wants, and style.

 We have access to the best materials and suppliers

Not only do we build long-lasting relationships with our customers, we do the same with our suppliers. Absolutely everything is dealt with in-house, from the design, to the build, you won’t ever be speaking to more than one person, or one company. 

However, we do need to get our material from somewhere. We’ve spent years and years forming bonds with suppliers, finding like-minded people we can trust, and who can trust us. Because of this, we’re in a position to be able to source all types of materials and metals, in order to provide you with a high-quality, long-lasting sliding gate design. 

We believe the level of service we provide is rare, as most companies either provide the design, but not the build, or don’t use suppliers regularly enough to form any sort of relationship. 

We know how frustrating it is to work with companies who drag their feet. But because of the relationships we’ve built, and our work ethic, our turnaround is quick, and efficient. So you’re never left wondering what’s going on, or when your aluminum sliding gate will be finished.

 Not only do we create and build your aluminum sliding gate, we look after it for years to come

When you invest in an electric sliding gate, it’s important you understand that it’ll need to be maintained. With the unpredictable weather in the UK, and the electrics used for your metal sliding gate, maintenance is essential. Many companies will provide you with a gate, but no aftercare package. 

At Cotswold Gates, we provide a 12 month warranty on all of our gates, including our sliding gate designs. But we go one step further, we also provide an optional maintenance package. This aftercare package is unique, as most companies won’t offer this service. And although this is an optional service, we do highly recommend it. 

We will provide a health check on your aluminum sliding gate every 12 months, and because we are a local business, any additional call outs can be dealt with on the same day. 

It was important to us when we decided to provide this product, that it also came with an optional service. We never want you to think that once the job is over, we just walk away. We want to build long-lasting relationships, as this is the foundation to any business success.

 Gate safety and gate security

When we install your custom gate build, your safety is paramount, as this is one of the main factors people choose to install driveway gates. This is why we ensure all of our engineers are suitably trained, and that all of our systems are designed and specified with safety in mind. We can provide you with a range of different safety functions, all of which we will discuss with you, when we plan and design your custom gate build. 

We are members of the BSIA, and are also certified installers of several manufacturers systems (Salto, ASSA, Abloy, Axis, Texecom). It’s important you have peace of mind when you hire us to build your gate, and that you are at ease with the level of security and expertise we instil into all of our custom gate builds.

How much does a sliding driveway gate cost?

On average, a metal sliding gate will take longer to install than a swing gate, so that would have some bearing on the cost. It also depends on the type of metal material you choose, and the size of the gate. For us to give you a quotation we would need to speak with you, as one size doesn’t fit all it’s impossible for us to provide a ballpark figure. Call us for a free, no obligation quote.

How do you measure a sliding gate?

There is a lot to consider when taking measurements for your metal sliding gate, but it isn’t something you need to worry about. We have considerable experience, and know what we’re doing. We provide an end-to-end service, so we complete all components for your gate build, from the design to the installation. We will do all of the work.

How do Cantilever sliding gates work?

Cantilever gates slide back and forth on a wheel, and are held above the ground. In a lot of cases Cantilever gates are cheaper to install than swing gates. But we can provide you with more information on different types of gates when we speak with you.

What is a sliding gate?

A sliding gate has wheels along the bottom, and slides open from left to right, or right to left, instead of swinging open like more traditional gates. Sliding gates typically feature an automated system, but you can have a manually operated gate if you’d prefer.

How long will my gate last?

Anything that lives outside needs to be maintained. It doesn’t matter how good it is, or the material used. Water, humidity and the general physical changes in weather dictate that any electrical, or mechanical system will need to be maintained in order to thrive. If maintained correctly, there’s no reason it shouldn’t last a lifetime.
