Hi
I am looking to get an aluminium gate for our driveway, possibly automated. Anyone with recent experience who can give me an idea of the indicative cost I would be looking at with/without automation.
Cheers

why not just ask companies for quotes thats the easiest way to know what its going to cost.

I have already kicked off the process to get some quotes but with the lockdown there will be a delay. I was just trying to get around idea for budgeting purposes.

We got a quote about 18 months ago. Was for a 5m cantilevered gate with automation. Came in around 10k.

6m long gate, on a rail, unmotorised for $3000. That is all inclusive of the labour etc, took around 4 weeks from on site quote to install.
Due to recent events we've been unable to find out what making it motorised would cost.

What are your specs?

 

Width? Height? Swing? Double swing? Rolling/Slide?

 

A possible starting point here:

I got our 5.5m long, 1.5m high aluminium sliding gate from https://www.getagate.kiwi/

Gate plus motor and accesories for just under $2k, delivered to to Palmy North from Auckland.

Put it in myself, was very simple.

Oh and automated with an ESP8266, and relay, and state feedback from the built in limit switches, so the home automation knows if it's open, closed or moving.

If you know someone with a welder you would be set!

 

We got ours made by my old man who happens to have an alloy mig, I think the materials were about 500 all up to make the gate (we did have some 7m lengths of 90x50box) and then about 1000 for the gate motor, track, wheels, and guides, I installed the entire gate which saved a lot.

 

I would recommend a Centurion gate motor the build quality is brilliant and the support here in NZ is great! spare parts are readily available here in NZ as well and there are a ton of features and things you can do with the controllers.

 

The centurions are also battery-backed, so if there is a power cut you can still open the gate, and the supply to the gates can be remotely installed, on the EVO D5 it requires a 12v supply and the controller charges the battery, so my security panel powers the gate.

so anywhere between 2000 and 4000 would be about right all depending on what is involved, getting power and control cables out to the motor is usually the pain in the bum part.
