Aluminium is one of the top materials for driveway gates due to its light weight and excellent resistance to rust. Boardwalk are the Experts in all things aluminium including Driveway gates.

Choose its Operation

Selecting your gate’s operation is crucial for your convenience and maintenance. The deciding factors for this step is the gate’s purpose and location, as not all options will be possible.

Sliding gates are ideal for both commercial and residential properties as they take up less space. When automated, they allow for fast convenient entry and exit for vehicles.

Decide on a Design

Add Accessories

A stunning and functional gate system can do wonders for your home’s appeal and value. Further maximise these benefits by choosing the right accessories for your gate.

For a more energy-saving and eco-friendly approach, some homeowners also choose to add solar panels to their gate.
