In the words of our own clients, here’s what they have to say about Westcoast Gate.
“The technician , Jimmy, assessed our problem involving the gate opening without our permission when someone buzzed the intercom. He rewired the intercom to become a dedicated phone line and solved the problem. A pleasure to deal with. Initial estimate predicted much more work but owner Bob Flecken was accessible and resolved the final bill to a fair charge that reflected the actual work performed. We highly recommend the company , Jimmy, and owner.
“Nell upgraded our Doorking boards for our security gates. Our situation wasn’t straightforward. He was beyond helpful and patient throughout the whole process. He had solutions for any unforeseen complications. Professionalism and customer service were bar none. Highly recommend.
“West coast Gate was a great experience. The technician Nelly was very polite and knowledgeable about what the gate needed to function properly. He didn’t take long in repairing it either. I highly recommend this company for gate replacement and repairs. Thanks.
“I was completely satisfied with the service I received from Jimmy he did a great job I’m sorry if my earlier email did not show that.
“Service and communication have been excellent.
“I have a wrought iron driveway gate that didn't close properly and was bent in the middle as someone (me) backed into it with our travel trailer. The 2 man team came out (10 minutes early 🙂 ) and made extensive repairs.The gate works perfectly. The technicians were friendly, professional, efficient and knew what they were doing. The gate works perfectly now! I would not hesitate to use Westcoast Gate and Entry Systems again!

“Gary, thanks again to you and your team for a wonderful result. Meets all of our needs – we are all very happy with the fences and gates.”
“I have been a client for 15 years. We go to Phillip for doors and gates. He is a great guy. Years ago another general contractor recommended Phil as a good reliable guy. Most of our projects are higher end and Phil always rises to the occasion.”
“When we made the decision to remodel our home we had no idea how complicated the auto and pedestrian gates would be to build. You guys not only saved us money with your suggestions but by recommending the right motors and materials everything works perfectly. Thank you so much!”
“My company builds custom residential homes. I have used Westcoast gate for 15 years. Westcoast Gate is not an “out of your truck” installer. They will do the drawings, plan the technology and think through the entire project from beginning to end. Their execution is fantastic.”
“Every home we build or remodel has a combination of vehicle and pedestrian gates. I have worked on 5-10 projects with Westcoast Gate and they are on time, show up when we need them and because gates are their business help us stay on budget without compromising quality.”
“As a subcontractor Westcoast Gate is 9.4 out of 10. Their responsiveness differentiates them from other gate companies. When I start a project for a client I’m investing in people to support me in every phase of the project. Westcoast Gate is top notch.”
“I have worked with Westcoast Gate for 6-7 years on roughly 12 projects. These guys know how to handle large, complicated projects. Their price is always competitive but the real reason I like working with them is because they get the job done on time and exactly as we agreed in the original design phase.”
We’ve been manufacturing and installing custom automatic security gates for almost 20 years and we love what we do: Especially when it’s a challenge. Our client recently purchased a very special property in Los Angeles. Working with architects and designers they created a contemporary look to their gates and asked us to build them in aluminum. Working with aluminum is a challenge because it’s a soft metal and it’s difficult to deliver clean welds. Aluminum is also a temperamental material and requires skilled craftsmen to make certain there is no warping. We were asked to build, finish, deliver and install four gates for the client: two vehicle gates, a pedestrian gate and a gate to access the lower level of the property.
The initial work was done in our welding shop in Hawthorne. The two vehicle gates called for angled ribs integrated into the main frame. In the largest rectangular gate, we installed 24 ribs at 30° angles. In the smaller gate with circular cutout we installed 11 ribs at the same angle. After the skeleton was built for each gate we purchased aluminum sheet metal and using a large format water jet system cut the oval and rectangular openings for the two vehicle gates. A precision cutting tool was required because both sides had to mirror each other and be an exact match. When the gates were finally assembled we finished them in a custom powder coated color and delivered them to the property.
Once on site the real fun began. The large rectangular gate weighs about 800 pounds. It was designed to be a sliding gate, but most sliding gate operators are chain driven. Because the client requested a clean look we created a cantilevered tail extending behind the block fence to counter balance the weight of the gate itself. We selected a rack and pinion operator that was mounted on a pad. The driveway has a smooth, uninterrupted finish but on the ground behind the wall we installed roller balls that allow for a smooth and quiet operation as the gate opens and closes. At the top of the gate inside the property we installed a rack with teeth in it which aligns with sprockets in the operator and activates the motor.
We had never built a security gate system like this before. With senior technicians that have been with us for many years and a team that considers every challenge an opportunity to excel, we delivered what the client asked for. At Westcoast Gate we serve one client at a time!
