Gate Access Control Systems for added security

Introducing Cotswold Gates, gate access control systems

When you’re looking for an access control gate, you need a product that provides you with security, and ease of use. This looks different for everybody, which is why we offer a variety of different access control systems.

For example, someone who is looking for added security for their family, is unlikely to want to get out of their car to input a code into a pin pad. They will want their access control gate to open from the comfort of their car, so a remote may be a better option for them.

We get to know you and your set up, as it’s important we understand why you need an access control system, and what you want from it. Of course, we can make recommendations, but if we don’t understand your requirements, it will be impossible to provide the right recommendations.

We know first hand how frustrating it is to work with a company who doesn’t listen, rushes, and hasn’t got your best interests at heart. Here at Cotswold Gates, we believe building long-lasting relationships is paramount to business success, and enables us to provide a truly remarkable access control gate that suits your needs.

In order for us to build long-lasting relationships we need to be trustworthy, and experienced in what we do. This is why we pride ourselves on the level of commitment we put into each and every one of our access control gates.

The security, and privacy of your home is what is most important. Which is why we don’t just walk away after your access control system has been installed. Instead, we provide a 12 month warranty and an optional maintenance package.

 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.


Because everything is dealt with under one roof, our turnaround is a lot quicker than companies who require multiple trades businesses. It’s uncommon to find a business who can design, build, craft, install, and maintain your access control gate, but at Cotswold Gates, that’s exactly what we do.

We will speak with you, either face to face or over the phone, to understand your needs and wants better. We’ll then design a truly exceptional custom gate build and speak again to see if 1) you’re happy with it and 2) if there’s anything you’d like us to change, add, or remove. And once your access control gate is built, we don’t stop there.


We provide a 12 month warranty on all of our gates as standard. However, on top of this, we also offer an optional maintenance package. We believe that by providing continued support, we can build long-lasting relationships, which are so important to our business success. We are truly passionate about the products we provide, that we don’t ever want to see them not looking their absolute best.

Our maintenance package is optional, but we highly recommend it to all of our customers. Due to the unpredictable weather, and working with electrics, access control gates need to be maintained. By completing a yearly health check on your gate, we’ll be able to keep it working at its full potential. Not only this, but because we work locally, so our engineers can attend any additional callouts on the same day.

What is an example of access control?

Access control systems are put in place so you’re able to see who is entering your property, and gives you control over who you allow into your home.

An example of an access control system is a key fob, which interacts with the gate so you can enter, or allow people to enter your property. Without the use of the key fob, nobody would be able to open the gate (unless they have access to the manual key).

How do access control systems work?

An access control system allows people access into and out of an area, that is otherwise off bounds, ie. your home. The access control system works with your electric gate, to allow you to enter your home, through the use of a key fob, app, keypad or other device of your choosing.

Why is access control important?

It’s important to those who need, or want, extra security as it gives you control over who is entering your property. It’s a valuable security technique for those who want the privacy and security of their home protected.

How much does it cost to install access control?

It varies significantly. There are many factors that come into play here, it’ll depend on the type of electric gate you have, the size of the gate and how old the gate is. It’ll also depend on the type of access control system you want for your home, do you want to use sensors, or an app? Give us a call and we’ll be able to provide you with a FREE, no obligation quote.

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.
