The Pheasantry Estate, Hamsphire
Client: The Pheasantry
Architect: Burrows Lea Forge
Contractor: Yateley Plant Services
Type of works: supply of elegant wrought-iron gates fitted with FAAC 760 underground swing-gate operators.
Upgrading perimeter security surrounding the exclusive Pheasantry Estate in Hampshire, old timber gates have been replaced by elegant wrought-iron gates mounted on classic Haddonstone pillars.
The gates have been fitted with FAAC 760 underground swing-gate operators providing easy access for authorised personnel, while ensuring the gates remain closed at all times.
The new gates were designed and made by Burrows Lea Forge, working with Yateley Plant Services who recommended and installed the FAAC operators. An approved installer, the company uses FAAC operators for almost all its gate automation work and has been impressed by the reliability of the products and the excellent technical support.
The 760 hydraulic operator was chosen for The Pheasantry as it is suitable for larger and heavier gates. In addition, the motors are contained within an underground load bearing foundation box, preserving the rural appeal of the estate. It is suitable for gates of up to 800kg per leaf with a maximum length of 3m and is equipped with a range of safety devices including built-in manual release and anti-crush bypass valves.
