Swing Gates

Swing gate automation offers a variety of options to fit your needs. You can choose from two types of automation: aboveground or underground. 

If you have limited space, sliding gates may be a better option than swing gates. Swing gates require more space to operate, but they work great on flat terrain. If your property has uneven ground, we have ways to ensure that your swing gates still work at their best.

 Additionally, you have the flexibility to choose whether the gates swing inwards or outwards. This decision can be based on your preference or the layout of your property. We aim to provide you with the best options for your property and ensure that your gates are working at their peak performance.

Sliding Gates

Howter Automation & Electrical Services offers sliding gate systems for your property. These sliding gates are designed to provide maximum protection and security while optimizing space utilization. The sliding gates are engineered to offer increased resistance to force, making them a superior choice for securing your property.

Our sliding gates are suitable for both residential and commercial properties. We understand that each property has unique requirements, and we work closely with our clients to offer custom solutions that meet their specific needs. Our team of experts will guide you through the entire process, from design and installation to maintenance and repair.

When you choose Howter Automation & Electrical Services, you can rest assured that you are getting the best sliding gate system for your property. We are committed to providing our clients with high-quality products and exceptional service.

Above Ground System

Our above ground automation systems are designed to operate gates with a maximum length of 7 meters each leaf. These systems are particularly suitable for gates that are not close boarded, especially if you live in an area that experiences high winds. 

Above ground automation systems are a more affordable option than their underground counterparts, requiring less time and equipment for installation. 

In addition, these systems are fully visible, allowing for easy maintenance and repair. Our above ground automation systems can be installed on new single swing or pair gates, as well as existing gates, making them a versatile choice for both residential and commercial properties.


In case of a power outage, it is possible to manually release the gate using a key-operated system. However, this manual release feature can only be activated from within the property, which can be inconvenient. Fortunately, some manufacturers offer kits that can be installed to the operator, allowing you to release the gate from the outside. If you think you might require this feature, please do let us know so that we can take the necessary steps to accommodate your needs.

Underground Systems

When it comes to automating your gates, opting for an underground system may require a larger amount of work compared to an above ground system, but the benefits make it worth it. Not only does it increase the aesthetic quality of your property, but the mechanisms are also concealed underground, with only the casing box lid and pivotal arm visible.

Our team can install an underground motor to new gateways and most existing pairs of gates, whether they are made of metal or wood. This type of automated system guarantees a sleek and sophisticated look for your property.

Additionally, in the event of a power cut, there is a manual key-operated system located on both the inside and outside of the gate, allowing for a quick and easy release of the gate. With our underground automated gate system, you can have both the convenience and the security you need without compromising on the visual appeal of your property.
