Hi just to warn you we had wooden electric gates from a well known company and they started to warp soon after they were installed. I treated them with oil etc but the wood is just too soft for the weather conditions we have down here. A total waste of money and we now have to look at buying new gates. I think this time I will only buy metal or UVPC as they won't move with the heat etc. Our gates have only been up three years and they are splitting and coming away from the mechanism that controls the opening and closing.

Hope this info is of some use to you.

Look on ebay- some artisans (I think) list their wares there. They say they make to order. Also there is a place making some interesting gates just beside BoConcept in Antibes/Vallauris (near the A8)- the name eludes me.
