Sliding Accoya Gate Install, Surrey

The Project:

This project was for a client located in Surrey who we had previously completed an install for and now, after moving to a new property, wanted us to replace the driveway and pedestrian gate.

Having met with the client and assessed the existing access we recommended that the best style of gate would be a sliding gate. A key factor for the client was privacy and therefore decided upon a wooden sliding gate fabricated in Accoya. This is one of our most popular material choices for gates. Not only is Accoya an extremely reliable wood it is extremely easy to maintain following installation.

The client decided on a straight top design for the Accoya sliding gates, finished in a dark grey/black paint.

The gates would be powered by BFT ARES motors. In this instance, due to the location of the gates the client did not require an intercom system and  opted for an automated system using remote key fobs


The project took approximately six weeks from start to finish. We usually divide the project into two stages within the aforementioned timeframe.

“This was a nice easy installation for us. The client knew exactly what she wanted and had colour schemes already in mind. Also, being an existing client she had previous working experience with the company and was extremely happy to accept any guidance we offered”. – Lee Hilton, Windlesham Gate
