TPS supply and install beautiful wooden driveway gates in a number of styles.We have many years of experience in automating timber gates and have developed specific hinges and motor brackets to assemble neat and reliable systems.
We highly recommend the use of hardwood gates as close grained hardwoods, such as Iroko,provide a stable and long lasting material that is less likely to deform or split over time.Hardwood timber for our gates is all purchased from certified sustainable suppliers located in the south west of England.If you are looking for electric wooden gates the choice of timber is of particular importance as the forces put upon the gates by automatic gate operators demand a robust material and structure.
We find that the best finish for our hardwood timber gates is to use an oil such as Danish Oil or Linseed oil.An oil treatment to wooden gates really brings out the grain for a beautiful finish, whilst protecting the wood and letting it breathe.Treated this way the gates will ‘silver’ over a period of time and a further application of oil periodically will keep your gates looking very distinguished.It is important to select a suitable and sturdy gate automation system for close boarded wooden gates. Hardwood is heavy, and a close boarded timber gate is strongly affected by the wind.For automatic timber gates TPS select powerful electric gate operators from the leading automation manufacturers.
Underground gate operators and post mounted electric operators have more stress put upon them by close boarded wooden driveway gates which are wind affected and it is important that the correct gate operators are used to provide a reliable system.If you would like information or advice on manual wooden gates or electric timber driveway gatesTPS can confidently offer you an attractive and reliable solution.
