Wooden Electric Gates

Electric Gates by Mitech.

Electric gates are becoming more popular every year. Customers now want more flexibility, and peace of mind that their property will remain safe and sound in their absence.

Today, there are so many different systems to choose from and Mitech  is dedicated to providing you with only the best solution. We manufacture gates for the Automation Trade across the UK, which provides great insight into what is currently trending, and what type of automation is delivering the reliability customers demand. 

We design and tailor every electric gateway to your exact needs. For example, if it’s a high use gateway, we will use a system that will withstand the constant motion which is often found with 24volt systems, as they are built for high frequency of operation.

As most of our handmade electric wooden gates carry an air of class and elegance, we tend to use the underground system. NICE L Fab and Big Fab underground units are the two main automation motors we install on our gateways. If its a small to medium pair of Barred or open designed gates we would use the 4000 series L Fab underground units. For bigger and more filled in gateways the 5000 series Big fab is the perfect motor for more power. 

Both motors come with inherent safety features which is the case for any safe gateway before looking at ribs and beams. Gates will glide into the final position and auto slow down to prevent trapping.

The beauty of this system is that it is buried at the base of the gate’s hinge-end. With the correct drainage built in, the galvanised box will last for years, as will its stainless steel counterpart, which has a better resistance to rot. As the box is underneath the gate, there is no sign that the gates are automated, giving an all-round professional look to your driveway entrance.

All gates manufactured by Mitech Joinery are made primary for automation. Strength and structural ability of the wooden fully morticed and tenoned frame is paramount in providing the strength required on a pair of electrically operated gates.

Take a basic approach to your automated gates with the three simple factors, below.


1 . Gates need to open and close on demand, Key Fob/GSM Dialler/Induction loop/Key Pad/Number Plate recognition.

2 . Visitors with no key fob need a keypad/intercom or side pedestrian gate for access.

3 . Health & Safety Mechanics Directives are followed on all installations! All electric gates should comply with relevant health and safety laws. Safety ribs on areas where risk of trapping, regulation hinges used where possible to alleviate the need for Ribs on hinge gaps , crush-tested and approved motors, and safety beams or induction loops to create safe areas of gate operation near vehicles or pedestrians; these are all great examples of things to consider.

Once you have considered the above, along with other factors, please feel free to contact us about our electric wooden gates. We will be more than happy to answer any questions and advise accordingly, and site visits can be arranged after a phone consultation for further guidance.

Which Motor?

During a site survey we will determine which is the best type of automation motor for your instaltion. Usage, design and size are the three key elements. Underground motors are our go to unit as they deliver on all three elements most of the time.
