Threats to our businesses – both physical and digital, continue to grow. Ensuring every aspect of your business is protected from harm’s way is of the utmost importance. Commercial gates should serve more than an aesthetic purpose. Although visual appeal is important, securing the property with high-quality security gates will give you peace of mind each day. We are trusted industry leaders in commercial gates and access solutions, and we work with you to ensure you get the right gate and access for your business premises.

  • Provide Protection & Physical Deterrent
    When it comes to protection, many business owners tend to think of the physical building, as opposed to the entire property. Facilities like hospitals, universities, prisons, and commercial enterprises can benefit from the added security of high-quality security gates. Restricted areas, pedestrian entrances, and facility entrances often need an additional level of security. At CM Gates & Barriers, our bespoke services mean you get the highest safety and security standards while maintaining the aesthetics of the property. The presence of a formidable security gate is often enough to discourage trespassers or on-lookers from trying to access the property. Adding a gate to your property can also increase the level of privacy, which can be a welcomed change depending on the nature of the business.
  • Improved Control & Access
    If your facility requires access-control features like a keypad, card reader, telephone entry, our security gate systems can incorporate the level of control that is needed. This level of security further improves the security measures by our gates. Find out more about our access control solutions here.
  • Curb Appeal
    Although one of the most important purposes of a security gate is to keep unwanted visitors outside, that does not mean it should hinder the property’s curb appeal. We pride ourselves on providing gates that are aesthetically pleasing and consistent with your property’s existing appearance, but most importantly, align with your businesses brand.
  • Additional Safety
    High-security gates do more than simply protect the surrounding property. Our carefully engineered systems can also help to provide added security to your most important resource: your people. Restricting vehicles or intruders from gaining access to the building or property can provide the reassurance that employees are safe from trespassers.

Commercial Gates

Commercial gates are the main part of any building and are responsible for the first impression of the person entering the building. This impression is quite valuable in any corporate firm and can be the reason for many big decisions; hence it is especially important to have the best gates installed on your premises. Our team understands the importance of security and safe operation for you as a commercial organisation, and we have been trusted by many large commercial organisations across Scotland and the North of England to supply and install commercial gates over the last 20 years.


In the beginning of the process, you’ll be asked a few questions to help us determine the best solution for you and your business. Some of these include:


  • Is your priority traffic/parking management or control?

  • Do you need to control traffic in and out?

  • Is there a sloping or challenging terrain, or are you dealing with lots of heavy commercial traffic?

  • Need a solution to complement the work of your security personnel at a front gate?

  • Do you need additional fencing to complete your security?

Mesh commercial gates and fencing

Because of their less aggressive top line, ease of installation, and flexibility, wire mesh panels are becoming increasingly common. They’re a great choice for sites that need both visibility and security, and they come in a variety of styles, from light mesh for pet enclosures or residential sites, to heavy mesh for high security and commercial applications.

Vertical commercial gates

Vertical commercial gate systems are highly versatile and are created to deliver a robust physical barrier for a wide range of low/medium security applications including education facilities, commercial premises, public spaces and residential settings. Vertical gates are well-established, timeless designs that offer a highly secure option for specifiers, architects and end users alike.

Palisade gates

Palisade is a long-time favourite when it comes to securing property. These are normally made of steel making it durable and difficult to breakdown. The benefits aren’t limited to security. It is incredibly popular when it comes to industrial and commercial sites. From airports to warehouses – it provides low maintenance and simple solution to securing perimeters.

Public and social sector gates

Security should always be a priority at council parks, especially due to the large number of visitors they are likely to have, especially during the spring and summer months. We can supply high quality council park gates and security barriers which provide a range of security benefits, including improved efficiency in car parks and the prevention of unauthorised access.

Farm and field gates

Farming is one of the toughest jobs out there so anything that can help to relieve some of the stress is a worthwhile investment. Opening and closing manual gates can be a pain, especially if you have a lot of traffic coming to and from the farm. We can supply and install new gates with highly effective automation systems that allow authorised entry and exit.

Solar powered gate automation

Did you know that you can use solar power to bring life to your gate automation system? This option is particularly useful for farm and field gates. A solar powered gate system is completely self-sufficient and can work miles away from the nearest mains power. If your mains power is above 75m away there is a significant saving compared to the groundwork and cost of armoured cable.

Safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to electric gates and automation systems. CM Gates & Barriers is a Gate Safe Aware Installer, and we aim to ensure all gate systems worked on, new and existing, conform with all current safety guidelines and legislation. Please note that every system we work on, whether installed by ourselves or another installer, must comply with safety regulations for us to sign off that the job has been fully completed. This is an essential part of our installation process, and we are unable to activate your gates automation until these requirements are met.
