About Us

My name is Gary Baker from Gate-Fix and this is our journey so far….

Ken Baker, my Dad, was one of the pioneers of electronic gates in Natal back in the day when opening your gates with a hand-held remote was something most people couldn’t even comprehend.

Starting out with an idea and his own unique design which he patented, he designed and manufactured everything from the gate operators to the pc boards.  Working from his garage at home, Ken carefully and passionately refined and perfected his Gate-Mate automatic gate system and launched on the Rand Easter Show in Johannesburg in 1981. 

I remember as a six-year-old kid, that my Dad’s stand at the NBS House & Garden Show in Durban was a huge hit, with people stopping and staring in amazement at my Dad’s gates magically opening and closing by themselves.   My sister Belinda and I were proud to be a part of something so new and exciting. 

He soon had a full order book which led him to acquire a mini factory and start his own production line under the name of Kentrols (Pty) Ltd, which ran successfully for many years.  It’s hard to believe that my Uncle Brian still has a pair of Gate-Mate motors opening and closing his driveway gates some thirty-eight years later – all be it with some TLC.

Many thanks for all your hard work & extra work you did for us it was greatly appreciated & I will recommend you to staff & friends of the school.

Vernon Smith

I would like to compliment your technicians that worked on our garage doors.

The difference is astounding, and I am led to believe that these doors had never been serviced before, as they were so noisy that it was a pain to open or close them.  In retrospect, they must have been attended to in the past, as one of the motors is apparently able to be serviced, and the other is now obsolete.
