Invicta Automation Limited is in Tonbridge, Kent.

We surveyed this site in Tonbridge, Kent a few weeks ago and following the driveway being changed for a charcoal block paving we’re installing a solid hardwood gate tomorrow.
The driveway has been removed and replaced by Songhurst Building Solutions - give them a like and message josh if your after any building, landscaping and driveway works.
The customer chose a solid gate to prevent visibility down the driveway for privacy. It will be a simple system with minimal functionality and usage.
Check out our page on here and instagram tomorrow for updates and the finished article.

Another one of our control panels. Each one we install is a mirror image of the one before. This makes it easy for engineers attending breakdowns and maintenances in the future - saving you, the customer money on our labour time to fault find.
This uniform approach to each install sets the standard of our engineers apart from most other installation companies.

Measure twice - cut once.
There’s no room for error when cutting wood, that’s why we double/triple check all of our measurements so we get it right first time every time.
Here’s one of the engineers notching out the top of the gate for our specifically designed hinge ... See MoreSee Less
Our specifically designed wooden gate hinge shown in the photos allows the gate to pivot on its hanging stile. This means we eliminate any reducing gap between the gate and the post whilst in motion.
Without a reducing gap our swing gate installs don’t require any form of additional safety on 24v systems.
This is the perfect solution to maintaining the compliance of a wooden swing gate whilst not interfering with the beautiful aesthetic they provide.
Again massive thanks to Wooden Supplies for supplying this beautiful Iroko five bar. The customer couldn’t stop commenting on the quality of the gate.
And thanks to Rolling Center for supplying the wrap around to our hinge straps. ... See MoreSee Less

Today we’re removing this old gate and replacing with a new five bar field gate. Existing non compliant automation will be ripped out and replaced with new 24v compliant automation. The intercom has cable damage and is being upgraded to a gsm system supplied by Telguard
Updates to follow later today, we’re hoping to have this completed in a day to ensure security is maintained on site. ... See MoreSee Less
Marking out for our top hinges.
We back fill all brick piers with concrete and leave to go off for a week. This allows us to drill into the concrete core and chemically resin fix stuffing into position giving a secure and strong mounting point to hang our gates.
We then core drill the centre hole and wind a hinge in. This gives us adjustment to level the gates up.

An upgrade we carried out for @GapPlantHire at the start of last month. After having the gates for over 15 years, the automation had a good run but needed replacing. The hinges were not compliant as they reduced and were a crushing hazard and the safety edges were not satisfactory.
The pictures below show our neat control panel. Our new hinges that do not reduce and a new free exit loop pitched into the ground as the previous one had perished.
All works we’re carried out safely and all staff members on site adhered to government guidelines in relation to the pandemic.
Please give us a call if your domestic or commercial gates require an upgrade. *** you can book an appointment directly through our Facebook page ***
Stay safe everyone 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
