Electric Metal Framed Timber Gate Features:

Advantages of a Wrought Iron (Metal) & Wood Electric Gate

Durability & Longevity

A wooden electric gate with a metal frame brings you the durability and longevity of a wrought iron gate with a warmer feel.

The metal frame of your new automated wooden gates will be galvanised to prevent rust. You also have the option of powder coating it for a completely maintenance-free finish.

The wood options we use for the infill of our electric metal gates also have protective properties, such as resistance to temperature and rot.

Attractive & Stylish Wood Infills

With metal and wood electric gates manufactured by our gate experts, you can add a touch of timeless beauty to your property and enhance the overall aesthetic and value.

We can manufacture softwood and hardwood electric gates with metal frames. We can supply these with an oiled, untreated, painted, or stained finish.

Choose from either Western Red Cedar (softwood) or African Iroko (hardwood) for your new wooden electric gates:

Western Red Cedar — Softwood

With a light, reddish-blonde colour that can be stained to match other existing cedar on your property, Western Red Cedar is an aesthetically pleasing and versatile choice for wooden gates. It’s considered to be one of the best timbers for exterior use because it is naturally rot and temperature-resistant.

African Iroko — Hardwood

African Iroko is a rich hardwood with a golden appearance and a consistent grain and tone that gives it a neat and elegant finish. This hardwood is similar to teak, with a stable nature and rot-resistant properties that add to its durability.

Safety & Security

In terms of security, our metal framed timber gates for driveways open and close at the click of a button, so you don’t have to leave your car to enter or exit your property. This also prevents your wooden electric gate from standing open for longer than necessary while parking.

Our team is fully qualified to install your new metal framed wooden electric gates with safety edges and will ensure that all its safety devices are correctly in place and in full working condition.

Protective Finishes

Over and above the treatment options for the wooden infill of your electric timber gates, you can also add protective finishes to the solid wrought iron frame of your new metal and timber gates to ensure you get years of good use out of them:


All of our metalwork is galvanised as a standard to ensure the longevity of your wrought iron framed wooden gate.

We use a process called ‘hot dip galvanising’, during which the metal frame will be coated with a layer of non-corrosive zinc. This will protect it from the elements and prevent rusting, making these timber and metal gates an ideal solution for homes in coastal areas.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is the preferred choice for the metalwork of your electric wooden gates, available as an optional add-on for all our metalwork. This is the longest-lasting, most durable coating you can have on the frame.

Powder coating gives metal a tough, chip-resistant, and maintenance-free finish, so you won’t need to reapply paint and other coatings to the frame of your wooden electric gates every few years. We can use this method to provide a top coat in any RAL colour of your choice.

Our Gate Automation Opening Systems & Configurations

We offer several automatic operation systems for the opening and closing of your new wooden electric gates. Our range includes swing gates, sliding gates, and bi-fold automated gates. These automatic wooden gates can be installed with above or below-ground motors.

Wooden Automatic Swing Gates

Swing gates are one of the best systems for your metal framed automatic wooden gates if you want something grand and timeless.

This type of opening configuration requires a significant amount of space in the area in which they will swing open.

Wooden Automatic Sliding Gates

Our wooden electric sliding gates are available as either tracked or cantilever sliding gates.

Our tracked wooden sliding gates are installed on wheels that roll along a track, which is suitable when the ground level across the gate opening is even. On more uneven ground, we use a cantilever system, which uses a concrete foundation to support the automated sliding gate system. Both of these options are space-saving and offer superior convenience and security.

Wooden Bi Fold Automatic Gates

Our bi fold wooden electric gates follow the same concept as our swing gates. However, they are designed for cases where there is limited space which can prevent the other opening configurations from working.

Bi fold gates are made up of two or more panels hinged together to fold rather than swing open. This type of electric gate can open from the centre, like traditional swing gates, or from the sides. Due to the design, engineering, and installation involved, it can cost more.

Access Control Systems for our Metal Framed Wooden Gates

Our metal framed wooden electric driveway gates can be installed with various access control systems. Whether you just want a standard button-controlled automation system or an intercom and motion sensors, we can ensure your electric wooden gate has it. We offer various access system options for our wooden automated gates, including but not limited to:
  • Keypads

  • WiFi/IP intercoms

  • Proximity readers

We can advise you on the most appropriate automation system for your property. Get in touch at to discuss your electric gate needs.
