As the Western Cape’s Premier company for your gate motors, driveway gates, pedestrian gates, security gates, and steel bar fencing, Glow Innovations prides itself on delivering quality workmanship, innovative design and superior service every time and is therefore trusted by hundreds of private and commercial clients! Along with reliable, sturdy gate motors, Glow Innovations also have a large spectrum of other services and products for homes and businesses.
Our product range is not limited to security applications, gate motors, fencing and gates as we also offer fabricated balustrades, staircases, structural steel beams and columns for the building industry as well as pergolas, garden trellis, custom shop-fitting steelworks and many more. If you want it, we can build it and have done so for a variety of clients.
Let us look at the Options and Variety that we can offer you, from effective gate motors to bespoke gates:
In this day and age, in a time of rising electricity outages, load-shedding is a reality that will not be going away anytime soon. We offer sliding electric gates with a gate motor that has a backup battery when the mains go down, and this is, frankly, becoming an essential requirement.
Not only does a gate motor and a motorised gate act as crime prevention, but combining it with a backup battery means you and your family can at least get in and out of your property at any time when the dreaded load-shedding period occurs.
Gate Motors: Automation And Maintenance
Like anything, your gate motor and electric fencing will work better with maintenance. Would you buy a car without a service plan?
We service and supply a wide range of gate motor, intercom and electric fencing products from reputable suppliers and we pride ourselves on delivering quality gate motor installations and secure electric fencing installations every time. However, we do acknowledge that these are all working parts and all working parts need repairs and maintenance during their lifecycle.
To this end, we offer comprehensive maintenance products for your commercial or domestic gate motors and electric fencing. On a callout basis, our dedicated electronics department will also quickly and cost-effectively repair your problematic products.
Our maintenance packages are GATEPLAN and FENCEPLAN, and they range from Platinum, Gold, Silver to Bronze. There is a package that suits each individual pocket and will mean that you enjoy priority treatment, no hidden costs for labour or component repair parts and no hassles with gate motor or gate breakdowns or faults.
These are cost-effective maintenance solutions that start from R49 per month. People rarely buy a car without a maintenance plan, why should your gate motor or security be any different?
For Architects And Designers: Gate Motors And Bespoke Designs
Specific to architects and designers, we offer a consulting service where we establish a suitable gate design specification document for driveway gates, pedestrian gates and the associated gate motor automation. This ensures that all companies tendering can be evaluated evenly based on a solution which is known to be workable and uncompromising. This allows the design professional to focus on other tasks of more importance and not waste their valuable time researching steel sections and fabrication best practices.

Driveway Gates And Gate Motors
First impressions count and as your driveway gate is the entrance to your home and property, it is the first thing that people see when they arrive at your destination. This is your chance to make a proper impression! Here are some valid points to consider when deciding on your driveway gate design:
Do you want a completely bespoke, custom design? A remote-controlled custom-designed automatic gate with various gate motor opening options adds huge value to your property. Other options include using heavier steel sections to create a solid feel or even a stunning wooden gate to coincide with surrounding aesthetics.
Other options range from decorative scrolls to cast iron mouldings, logos or intricate designs cut from steel plates that can be inserted into the automated driveway gate. These are always great statements. If privacy is your main focus then you should consider the strength of a steel driveway gate frame clad with either hardwood timber slats, galvanized steel plates, maintenance-free fibre cement slats or boards. We can even do a combination of any or all of these different materials.
Another very important aspect to consider is the final finish of your security gate and the colour you prefer. At Glow Innovations, we have mastered airless spray painting that enables us to apply environmentally friendly water-based enamels and acrylic paints to our products. This means you receive a finished product which requires no touch-ups or extra expense for many years to come.
Whichever way you decide to go, you must always remember that every driveway gate we supply, from the most economical to the most elaborate, is engineered to last and to be extremely reliable.
We design all our steel gates using SOLIDWORKS CAD before manufacturing and you receive a final gate design drawing for approval before anything is cut. The end result is a gate with your desired style and no upsetting surprises.
Your Fencing Options
Glow Innovations fencing styles include bar fencing, palisade fencing, steel with timber cladding and pool fencing. Considering Cape Town’s close proximity to the sea, every fencing product we produce is hot dip galvanized so the lifespan of our fencing can be protected.
We can also further increase the gate longevity with galvanised mild steel primers and painted top coats. We can match almost any colour to help you to blend your fence into its surroundings or if so required, stand proud as a showpiece.
At Glow Innovations, we offer a free onsite consultation to help you better understand the various fencing products we can offer you. Our range includes (and is not limited to) bar fencing, palisade fencing, steel with timber cladding and pool fencing.
The stark reality is housebreaking increases every single year and with the concerns around housebreaking and forced entry, it is imperative to protect your windows as well as your gates and doors. Glow Innovations will do this attractively without compromising your security.
After many years of installing and manufacturing burglar bars, we have a range of different colours and styles. Styles include cottage pane, straight verticals, Spanish bars, tainted panels or decorative wrought iron designs that can be installed on wooden or aluminium windows. Our burglar bars are manufactured using steel sections that are securely welded together by our experienced welders. Due to the fact that our burglar bars are fully framed, they have no movement once installed into your walls, which virtually eliminates forced entry by potential intruders.
In the case of an emergency, we offer a unique feature of an escape hatch that we can incorporate into a burglar bar. The burglar bars are impenetrable, but in the event of a fire or other emergencies, the hatch is unlocked and you can escape through an otherwise barred window. We also offer a variety of traditional locking systems that can be used or secure electric locks with battery backup. The escape hatch also works perfectly in a case where your doors are inaccessible in an emergency or difficult to unlock quickly.
All of our bars are designed to your exact specifications and designed to fit snugly with the minimum impact on the room.
We offer a full range of balustrade and handrail solutions including stainless steel. This ranges from ornate to purely functional and we will happily secure any stairwell, balcony or staircase. We adhere to all local building regulations regarding safety on stairs and balconies and construct strong and attractive protection for your home’s upper stories.
We are also proud of our ability to create a unique design specifically for your home or workplace. Drawings are generated and samples can be made to ensure your bespoke design is the one you had in mind. Glow Innovations balustrades are installed by our experienced team members who have been certified and trained to work safely at any height.
The greatest advantage of electric fencing is that it is proactive security. Not only is it a hindrance but if a potential intruder decides to try climbing over it, a nasty shock will result as well as sounding an alarm.
The obvious presence of electric fencing with its bright warning signs is an excellent visual and highly effective realistic deterrent for any potential intruder which results in a visible and strong front-line defense against criminals.
All our electric fencing products are installed to SABS standards and we use only the best-quality Nemtek products. This means you will feel secure that your electric fencing will keep you and your loved ones safe for many years to come. Another added bonus is that all Nemtek electric fencing energisers utilize battery backup so you can rest assured that you still have active protection during power outages.
