What Was the Challenge?

The school required the gates to be designed, fabricated, and installed within a tight three-month window. They contacted five companies, seeking a partner who could offer a competitive quotation and guarantee swift and efficient delivery.

How Did We Respond?

Not only did we provide a competitive quote, but we also pledged to complete the work in just four weeks. And guess what? We delivered on time and within budget without compromising on quality or safety.

What Did We Do?

Here's a closer look at our approach:

  1. Removed Old Gates: Safety first! We promptly removed the old gates to make way for the new, ensuring a seamless transition and no compromise to the school's security.
  2. Fabricated New Gates: Our team crafted new gates, paying meticulous attention to detail. The gate frames were made from a durable mild 50 x 30 x 3mm SHS profile, with posts constructed from robust 100 x 100 SHS, ensuring longevity and resilience.
  3. Safety and Security Features: Each gate was fitted with two-sided Borg Locks, and the double swing gates received additional security drop bolts. With three hinges per gate, we enhanced safety and functionality, ensuring peace of mind for the school community.
  4. Easy Maintenance: We installed high-quality black composite gate boards for the gates, chosen specifically for their ease of maintenance and aesthetic appeal. This ensures the gates will remain in top condition without requiring frequent upkeep.
