  3. Gate Fabrication & Interim Gap

    Recommended 10 Day interim break to allow for hardening off period. During this time A1 Gates & Securities will fabricate the gates to your exact requirements.

  4. Installation & Commission

    Usually 2-3 Working Days, to deliver the gates to your property, install them and then commission the automation system. Your gates will be stringently tested to conform with the UK Building Regulations and all European Safety Standards. Installation times can vary depending on the complexity of access control systems.
