Autoelectric gates in Barnsley are a bespoke manufacturer and installer of steel and hybrid (Wooden infill steel) gates. We provide a complete service from initial site survey through to design and installation of gates for residential customers in Barnsley and surrounding areas of South Yorkshire. We manufacture and install iron gates and railings, wooden infill steel gates, swing gates, sliding gates and pedestrian gates. Our experienced team have been installing Automatic Electric Gate entry systems since 1998.


The mechanical systems use an electric motor to operate either a worm drive or hydraulic power pack. The gates are then opened with an actuating mechanism consisting of an arm that is connected to the gate.

Below Ground Systems

The advantage of an underground system is in aesthetics, looking less obtrusive than other systems because only the lid of the actuator box can be seen at ground level. The rest of the system is concreted into the ground where it cannot be seen. Although slightly more expensive this type of system is usually chosen for decorative gates.

Above Ground Systems

Above ground systems use an actuator arm fitted to the back of the gates. The cost saving comes from the fact that these systems are easier to fit. We have fitted 100's of these types and always design gates to disguise the actuator arms. The arm designs have become much slimmer in recent years. Another advantage of actuator arms is that they are able to operate much heavier and therefore larger gate designs.


All the systems we fit have an override facility so that, in the event of power loss the gates can be opened manually. Various other safety systems such as flashing lights and proximity detectors are fitted as required.
