Last night my security camera caught some random guy nosing down our driveway in the middle of the night. Luckily the security lights was enough to deter him but I am now considering getting a Louvre electric gate installed. I haven't gotten a quote from anybody just yet.

 

I was wondering:

 

a.) How much would an louvre style electric gate (sliding) roughly cost? ($3000-$5000 ??)

 

b.) If anyone has good experiences/recommendations for any installers in Auckland

 


Thanks!

I would be interested too. I think it depends on how wide it is and how many panels are sliding, and whether it is a stacker, or two panels slide from each side. I wouldn't think there would be much change from 10k on a double width gate.

I've spent $1600 on automation gear from V2, an Italian crowd, for two swinging gates.

Around $1000 in materials, including galvanising, to build the gates and posts myself. Time isn't counted there, and the gates cover a 5.2m opening.

If I'd gone down the sliding route, both the gate and the automation would have been significantly cheaper - no hinges, posts dont need to be as substantial and would have only needed one opener rather the two. Sliding gear for the same opening would have been less than $1k

If you're willing to do the work yourself, I'd be looking at well under $3k

Yea we spent only around $2500 for a 5m sliding gate and motor. Put it up myself - really simple. The sparky left the cable there for me, I connected it to the motor, and he connected it at the board (during new house build).

No idea what a 'Louvre' gate is, but ours is just aluminium square bar, 1.5 high, 5m long.

Got it from www.getagate.kiwi. just double check their shipping when it comes to you.

Do you mean somebody drove into your gateway? Any chance it was just a convenient place to turn in your street?!
