Our gates are built locally by local darwin trades using Australian Steel where possible and then powdercoated locally with good quality powder coat to withstand our harsh climate.


We can retrofit to existing gates. That’s right, you can add back up batteries or solar to your existing powered gates.


We provide custom designed and engineered solar automatic gate systems for apartment blocks, domestic, and commercial premises.
