Carolina Gate Control

Leading The Team

Matt Meashey assumed the position of President and Chief Operating Officer of Carolina Gate Control in November 2022. He manages Residential, Commercial and Automated Gate Operations. Matt is the original owner of Outdoor Structures, Inc. He is a graduate of NC State with a degree is Accounting. In 2008 Matt became a Licensed General Contractor in North Carolina. He resides in Wake Forest, NC with his wife Tammy and a few furry friends.

The company was originally started by Andy Pease. Andy was an electrician when he entered the fencing industry in 1990. He sold and installed fencing until 2004 when he started selling and installing automatic gates. He grew his company Carolina Gate Control into a profitable venture. He joined the Sierra Structure’s team in 2022 when they acquired Carolina Gate Control and serves as a sales representative and technician for gate operators and access control projects. Andy is originally from Ohio and currently resides in Durham.

Carolina Gate Control is the premier automated gate and building access system installation and maintenance company serving Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, NC.

We pride ourselves in the high level of customer satisfaction and service we provide. We also strive to be the most knowledgeable about design, construction and maintenance of our systems (and very often the systems other companies have abandoned) to provide you with a product you are secure and satisfied with.

We install, service and maintain swing gate operators as well as sliding gate operators in single or double gate applications. We’ll help you find the right choice for securing residential or commercial properties when limiting access is a must. We offer support and maintenance for new and existing equipment.

We also offer access system design and installation. Keypads, telephone entry, ground loops, integrated computer programming on-site or remotely, electro-magnetic locks, infrared photo eyes, proximity cards and RF technologies can be mixed and matched to design an access system that does exactly what you need it to do. We specialize in control systems for gated communities, self-storage sites and corporate/industrial applications.


“I have been a fence contractor for 32 years and when one of my customers needs an automatic gate opener, I always recommend CGC. They do very nice work and they offer quick reliable service down the road. My customers often thank me for the recommendation.”

-John H.


“My wife and I were unclear what operating system would best suit the needs of our increasingly busy family activities. CGC helped us determine the most economical and efficient way to insure reliable access for all of our family members while providing peace of mind that my wife and children remain safe and secure when I travel abroad. I am truly thankful for the care that CGC took to keep my family’s schedules flowing flawlessly even if someone forgets their key.”

-Mark A.


“Andy and his crew installed an operator and access system that lets us manage the access privileges of 50 employees as well as 30 snow plows that run 24/7 during snow storms. All of the activity is recorded and managed on my computer. I can also manage and view entry/exit logs from anywhere that I can get online. It’s a great system and I wouldn’t use anyone else for operators and controls. I highly recommend Carolina Gate Control.”
