How Much Do Electric Gates Cost?


 
Business,Marketing
How much do gates cost? The cost of gates varies significantly based on gate material, styles, size and design. Larger gates cost more than smaller gates of the same design and made of the same material. Generally, softwood gates are cheapest but require a lot of maintenance and don’t last long. Hardwood gates are more expensive and last longer than softwood gates but still require regular maintenance. Aluminium gates are comparable in price to hardwood gates and need no maintenance. Ornate iron gates are usually the most expensive. The more ornate the style, the more expensive your gates will be and non-standard finishes and colours will add to the cost of new gates. Swing gates are usually more expensive than sliding gates as there are two of them instead of a single sliding gate. Linkcare supplies two swing gates joined to make a single sliding gate that still looks like two swing gates. The advantages here include the cost of installation as described below.

How much does installation of electric gates cost?

Electric gate installation costs are determined by groundworks and type of gates. Groundworks include pillars, posts and underground motor installation and drainage provision. You might think that sliding gates would be the cheapest to install as there is only one gate and one motor. However, track needs to be laid for the motor to move along and this can require digging up the driveway. In the end, the groundworks can make these simpler systems just as expensive to install as Swing Gate Automation. With swing gates rams are slightly more expensive to install than articulated arm motors as careful alignment is required with the former. More cost is added when underground motors are chosen. These require careful alignment as the motor forms the bottom gate hinge. They also require holes in the ground for mounting and drainage. Without provision for sufficient water drainage, motors can remain submerged in water which will cause them to fail. In-post systems are usually the most expensive and have to be installed with the gate pillars or posts.

How much does gate automation cost? Generally speaking, gate automation systems increase in costs in the following order: Sliding gates Articulated arms Rams Undergrounds In-post systems.

How much does it cost to run electric gates? Electric gates don’t use much electricity and their running costs will depend on how much they are used. In standby, an electric gate system will use about 100 watts per day.  With electricity costing around 15p per KWh this translates to 1.5p per day. When the gates are active they will be using up to about 700W, but this is only for about 20 seconds in each direction so this will add about 0.2p to your electricity bill for each cycle of the gates. An average set of domestic gates open up to 15 times a day which would around 3p based on the prices quoted above. So, over an entire year the electricity cost for gates opening up to 15 times a day (Which is quite a lot) is likely to be in the region of £15-16.

How much does it cost to maintain electric gates? Larger costs will be incurred from maintenance visits. These will vary depending on your gate system and how far away your chosen gate engineer is. Sufficient maintenance to ensure reliable operation and a long life for your electric gates is likely to be around £150 - £300 per year. Some companies will offer just a basic cost for a maintenance visit to check the system and then quote for any remedial works as required.  Other companies may offer a comprehensive maintenance/guarantee contract which would include replacement parts, but these will be substantially more expensive. Most electric gate system manufacturers offer a guarantee on their equipment from new. This encourages you to use installers who buy from reputable sources in the UK so that these guarantees are honoured. When you check this with your gate engineer, also check that their labour is included as part of the guarantee they give you. If you have any questions about electric gates, call Linkcare on 01895 232 626.
