We offer a range of automation options for all swing, sliding and bi-folding automatic gates we manufacture, using our in-house automation systems.

Our gate automation engineers are DHF trained to a minimum of level 2. All our automatic gates are fully CE certified and conform to the Machinery Directive 2006/46/EC and current regulations including EN12453, EN 12445, EN 12604, EN 12605 and EN 60204-1.

Swing gates

Our automatic swing gates are double or single leaf and ideal where there is plenty of space to open in front of the gate but no extra space to the sides of the gates.

Cantilever sliding gate

Sliding gates

Our automatic sliding gates are single or double leaf and are ideal at the bottom of a slope and where there is plenty of space to the sides of the gate opening. Available with tracked or cantilever mechanism.

Bi folding speed gates

Bi-Folding Speed Gates

Our automatic bi-folding gates offer opening and closing speeds of approximately 1m per second, making them ideal for high security applications or emergency services where opening and closing the gate quickly is essential for security or critical to operations.

Gate automation options

Our gates can be automated in different ways to provide the right access control option to suit you. Gates can be operated from underground operators or through hydraulic rams. This gives you the choice of how you want your new automated gate to open at your home or business. Whether you are a residential or commercial customer we will have the right automation function to suit your needs, providing smooth and safe operation. Gates can be maintained easily and will provide peace of mind when installed by a qualified engineer.

An underground operator is situated at ground level by each gatepost and is ideal for both residential and commercial premises. Our underground operator features a magnetic locking system, a maximum opening of 180 degrees, and is suitable for 1,800 operations a day. What's more, our underground operators are fully CE accredited, conforming to the Machinery Directive 2006/46/EC. Hydraulic ram operators are available for electric gates and are ideal if you are purchasing gates up to seven metres. They are attached to the gate for applications that require high performance. Jacksons offer custom designed hydraulic ram operators to individual site requirements.

Hydraulic Ram Gate Operators

Hydraulic ram gate operators suit gates up to 7m per leaf and can be installed on single or double leaf gates, suitable for 500 operations daily, and fully CE/UKCA accredited.

Automatic gate design

We manufacture and install a wide range of swing, sliding and bi-folding automatic gates. Our range of gates includes vertical bar gates, welded mesh gates, timber gates, and metal railing gates. Discover our different styles of gates which can be automated below.

Nationwide installation

Our automated gates are made to order, meaning we are able to meet any specifications without compromising on design, and installed by our gate automation engineers. We also provide maintenance and servicing contracts, and our gate automation is supplied with a 25 month automation guarantee, subject to a servicing contract being taken out in the second year.

Types of Automated Gates

The videos below demonstrate just two of the many types of automated gates that we offer. The timber courtyard gate which is commonly installed in residential properties has a double leaf design and swing action. The steel gate, shown here in a school environment has a vertical bar design and a sliding operation.

Gate Automation Maintenance

Under the current Health and Safety regulations you have a legal responsibility to have all powered gates or barriers maintained on a regular basis by a suitably qualified engineer and that a proper record is kept. Our gate maintenance contracts are specifically designed to cover you under the appropriate regulations and ensure you receive optimum safe performance from your automated gates or barrier.
