The FANCY FENCE system is based on gates that disappear into the ground when opened. They can be assembled together to form a retractable fence of any length. The use of standard components that are commonly associated with sliding gates allows this unique solution to be extremely simple and reliable. The gate leaf and drive mechanism are located in a sealed reinforced concrete vault in the ground. It is connected to large counterweights through a system of cables and pulleys, where the weight of the counterweights is equal to the weight of the leaf. This design enables the use of conventional and easily available low power electric drives, which guarantee reliability, ease of operation and maintenance of the entire drive system.
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.
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).
Snow needs to be removed for a swing or sliding gate to open after heavy snowfall. This inconvenience is eliminated with FENCE FANCY gates as they slide into a concrete vault.
The relatively high cost of a precast concrete vault (available only for gates no wider than 4m) is compensated by an extremely short installation time as time consuming on-site casting is eliminated.
The innovative installation tooling system allows for the FANCY FENCE installation time to be as short as possible. For example, it takes less than one day of work to install a 30m long fence in standard installation conditions.
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.
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.
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.
