Ruby Telescopic Gate Installation - Case Study

The Problem, Solution and Process

In early 2023, we worked with The Cheltenham Brand to complete a job in the beautiful seaside location of Lancing, near Brighton. The client wanted an automated aluminium gate, but the restricted space behind the walls and pillars at the front of the property limited their options.

We worked directly with the installer to find a solution. We manufactured a beautiful Ruby telescopic gate in RAL 7016, anthracite grey. The gate was expertly installed, leaving The Cheltenham Brand with a happy customer.

As one of our approved installation partners, The Cheltenham Brand Surveyor visited the client to conduct a thorough site survey and discuss potential solutions. Once we found a solution, we discussed it with the installation engineer and put together a plan to manufacture the gate that the client wanted and that would suit this particular situation.

When the client was happy with the proposed solution, we provided detailed drawings to The Cheltenham Brand. Once the property owner gave the go-ahead, we put the gate into production. We completed the manufacturing process within the agreed 8-week lead time, and the gate was then delivered and expertly installed.
