QUICK OPENING / CLOSING
A FANCY FENCE gate features a very short full opening/closing time, which is several times shorter than in the case of other type of gates available in the market. The secret is that the distance to be travelled by the leaf to open/close the gate is more than twice as short as in other gates and that a neutral weight of the leaf thanks to the counterweights used allows for faster speeds to be used in the drive unit.
INCLINED DRIVEWAY INSTALLATION
As the leaf travels vertically, the FANCY FENCE gate is the only gate available in the market that may be installed in an inclined driveway, without having to level the ground around them. For installations where the gate leaf is perpendicular to the inclined ground it is necessary to install a channel drainage system along the top line of the concrete vault to prevent flooding of the vault.
For installations where the gate leaf is parallel to the incline, the top of the gate leaf may be horizontal or parallel to the inclined ground (in the latter case the height of the gate leaf arrangement will differ on both ends).
To achieve the desired effect, the FANCY FENCE system is installed by dedicated, specialized and fully trained installation teams. Before the commencement of every installation, the site conditions are carefully analysed, and installation takes place with a precision that guarantees the highest quality. At the same time, unique customised methods and tooling specifically prepared for the FANCY FENCE system enable the installation work to be conducted in the most suitable manner for this type of work.
FANCY FENCE gates are fitted with identical sensor systems as those used for sliding gates. They are aesthetically mounted on the outer components of the fence on both sides of the gate. At the instance that the light beam is broken by any object, the safety system immediately stops the movement of the gate. Overload protection that is installed as a standard in our gate drives is additional protection.
It is worth noting that unlike other types of gates available in the market, FANCY FENCE gates are safe for people, pets and property, even if other safety systems fail. This is due to the unique design of our gates which do not incorporate another fixed object that the gate would induce a crushing force against when closing.
UNRESTRICTED ARRANGEMENT POSSIBILITIES
The FANCY FENCE system allows you to configure the arrangement of your fence, gate and pedestrian access gate. The basic arrangement is made of steel pickets that depending on your preferences can be cladded with any material offered by your local distributor. Depending on the region these are:

Emergency manual opening or closing of the gate is activated with the use of a handle, through the service opening located in the centre cover. The fact that the leaf-counterweight system has a neutral weight differential, allows for it to be lifted or lowered effortlessly even by children.
INVISIBLE PEDESTRIAN GATES
The FANCY FENCE pedestrian access gate does not have standard hinges. The gate swings open around one of the pickets at the end of the gate. This is possible because a horizontal beam is used to connect the gate pickets together. This beam is placed slightly below pavement level to obtain the effect of an “invisible” gate that is merged into the rest of the fence. Naturally, if you want to make your pedestrian access gate stand out from the rest of the fence there is a wide range of materials and colours available for you.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
There are many benefits to using aluminum as your base material for your rail system. Below are just a few reasons aluminum has skyrocketed in popularity with property owners:
Aluminium is a light, durable metal with an excellent strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance – making it an ideal material for gates, fencing, and pergolas. Each of our products is coated with an electro-statically applied, powder-coat finish, making it bump and scratch resistant, water-tight, highly resistant to corrosion and easy to maintain.
Wood and iron either decay or corrode over time. Powder-coated aluminum doesn’t. This makes it the premier outdoor use material; you’ll see it in park benches and fencing, and in outdoor furniture. It’s the choice for any situation where there isn’t the time or manpower required for constant maintenance.
Aluminum fencing can be designed to fit any style need. The powder coating added during production allows it to easily replicate wood, iron, or stainless steel. It’s malleable properties allow for beautiful design or glass in-lays. When using a traditional picket style of aluminum fencing it can easily be adjusted to fit any hillside or slope without any unwanted gaps.
Classic or Contemporary
We can either match the classic â€œestateâ€ look of wrought iron, or complement any modern style with a variety of different colors and styles. Mulholland’s aluminum gates, fencing, and railing increase the beauty of any yard.
Aluminum’s light weight is safer and easier to install. Once installed, our gates and fencing are more stable, requiring less adjustments. Heavier iron gates pull against their pillars, bringing about sagging, and difficulty in opening and closing. A gate can sag to the point where it denies entrance or exit. Not such a problem with aluminum!
Aluminum is the most environmentally friendly metal. It can be recycled endlessly without detriment to the material. Nearly 75 percent of all aluminum ever produced is still in use today. We use recycled aluminum whenever it is available, the powder-coating is better for the environment than painting as well.
