One good reason for this success is the product’s astonishing resistance to adverse weather conditions and variable climate. HorizAL™ gates are virtually maintenance- free and coated with marine-grade Qualicoat™ thermal lacquering (the highest European standard). which ensures longevity and reliability of colour and finish. The lacquering itself is guaranteed for a minimum of 10 years! Also, each gate is made from a reinforced structure, which reduces the stress caused by strong winds. Each HorizAL™ gate is properly engineered, rather than ‘screwed & glued’ like cheaper alternatives, then rigorously factory-tested at the production facility in Lyon before being CE marked and shipped to the UK. Of course, the UK is not renowned for good weather, so it’s no surprise that demand is high for gates that can withstand the elements so well. And, if a part of the gate is damaged, each section is easy to disassemble, so sectional replacement is a quick and easy process. “Horizal™ gates are incredibly durable, mainly down to build quality and finish,” comments Darren Weatherill. “This makes them very popular with both our installers and homeowners – as all they ever need is a light wash from time to time.” Every company forming part of our Horizal™ UK network gets a dedicated homepage on the website, featuring personalised content, full-colour brochures, business cards, a price list, technical brochures, colour catalogues and demonstration cases. Two sample gates – normally one powder-coated and one woodgrain finish – are also provided, in padded protective bags. They also benefit from a new technical addition to the HorizAL™ operation - The Weather Beaters – HorizAL Leads The Way In Hardy, Low Maintenance Aluminium Gates
