Replacing an existing gate

Killeen Engineering received an enquiry about removing an old gate, it’s automation/cabling and replacing it with a new secure model at a business premises in a residential setting.

One of our team visited the site for an inspection survey, to discuss the client’s needs and take measurements. With this information gathered, a new design was suggested – fabrication and works were agreed upon.


Out with the old

The old gate was dismantled and removed. Pre existing automation, cabling + gate fixings, brackets to be removed safely.


In with the new

A new set of manual swing gates were fabricated in our workshop, replacing the original single sliding gate. These gates are similar to the Lumiere Gate from our Craft Collection but feature a ‘straight across’ top rather than arched. Two drop bolts were added for securing the gate at these business premises.

A practical durable finish was provided by the galvanising process.

Secure metal plates and concrete were used where previous automation, fixing and brackets existed, leaving a clean professional finish.

All of our gates are made to order by our expert fabricators in our premises in Co. Meath. This means that our designs can be customised according to your requirements or you can design your own. Find out more information on how our sales process works. Read about our 10 Year Structural Guarantee.
