With regard to the cost; we never profess to be the ‘cheapest’, however, what is not initially obvious are the savings in ‘lifetime’ costs which are significant in comparison with other companies apparently offering a service in this complicated industry.
We pride ourselves in offering a personalised service and guarantee to provide you with a good experience from initial enquiry to handover, please take a look at our feedback on this website which speaks for itself
New brick built entrance and automatic gates.

“What a pleasure to deal with Phil's company 360 Automations Ltd., which also oversaw all the work necessary prior to the automation and gate fitting including entrance walls and resurfacing. Also delighted with the high quality of the large wooden gates supplied and fitted along with the comprehensive automation of the gates. And no list of 'extras' at the end of the work! Highly recommended.”
