Benincà ‘Proper Job Install’ – October 2022 Winner

Bespoke Steel Frame Timber Clad Sliding Gate, installed in Somerset, by AJ Electric Gates and Automation


Situated in the stunning location of Cheddar, a quintessentially British town based in Somerset, AJ Electrics Gates had the pleasure of designing and installing a beautiful steel frame timber-clad sliding gate. The end user wanted to increase security and add value to their attractive property. AJ Electric Gates installed a stunning entrance, delivering style and security. This gate really adds the wow factor to the property.



When asked if they faced any challenges when undergoing this particular installation, AJ Electric Gates confirmed they were working with a very wide and sloping driveway. However,the driveway in question suited a sliding gate perfectly. When discussing the project and requirements initially with the customer, they emphasised how they frequently worked away. Therefore, they needed a practical solution for answering and receiving deliveries when not at home. The Telguard GSM intercom was, therefore, the perfect solution.



AJ Electric Gates installed a Benincà BULL 1224 TURBO sliding gate motor, suitable for powering gates up to 1200 kg. The perfect motor choice for domestic and commercial environments, with its fast 24 Vdc gear motor making it ideal for intensive use. The BULL1224 TURBO boasts an extensive list of features, such as a control unit with an incorporated receiver and virtual encoder, oil lubricated reductions, personalised release key, and a built-in battery charger. The installation includes a stylish Telguard Optimus Intercom, Telguard exit keypad, wireless and hardwired safety edges, hardwired safety edge controller, GRP weatherproof enclosure.

A key feature for this install is the flexibility and control via an app on your smartphone for the installer and end user of the Telguard Optimus intercom and the internal keypad. Using the Telpad II keypad both installer and end user can adjust and control the keypad codes to both the integral keypad of the front side intercom and the rear side stand alone keypad.



This bespoke steel frame timber clad sliding gate stands out beautifully alongside the limestone brick wall. It now provides the end user with 24-hour peace of mind,, alongside secure and controlled access. We are therefore delighted to award AJ Electric Gates and Automation with our October ‘Proper Job’ install award.
