We design, manufacture, install and service bespoke automated gates, access control systems and security


Automated Control Systems (ACS) is based in Frome, nine miles south of Bath. 

We were founded in 2011, and between us the team has more than 35 years, knowledge, expertise and experience.

We cover the whole of the South West, the M3/M4 corridors, and occasionally undertake specific projects in London.

Our gallery shows the wide range of activities undertaken. Much of what we do has to be tailored to each individual situation – we therefore offer a personal service built around your specific needs. 

Our wooden gates are sourced locally from specialist manufacturers who we’ve developed good and trusted relationships with, so you get a high quality, reliable product. The materials used are from sustainable sources; where required the gates are then designed and hand-crafted to your exact requirements.

Metalwork fabrication is done in-house, giving us control over a key stage of the project, which ensures the success and reliability of your installation.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for the automation of our gate. The guys that fitted it on that ridiculously cold day were hard-working, conscientious and friendly. Just wanted you to know that they didn’t let you down in any way!
