About Us

 Winks Electrical and Automation was founded in 1994 by the current owner, Dennis Winks.

The business was started due to a bad installation experience of a garage door and garage door motor which never worked correctly from day one and the “big reputable” garage door company could not get it right with many excuses why it is not their fault etc.

As a “can do” person, Dennis Winks decided to contact a South African IDA member ( International Door Association ) to learn how to install a garage door and garage door motor properly according to international ( USA and European ) correct and safe standards to fix his own installation.

As a qualified electrician trained with “old school” values in the repair and maintenance of industrial machinery and now with IDA training for garage doors and motors, a gap in the market was identified for guaranteed / proper installations of garage doors and motors.

As time went on, training for the installation gate motors, advanced electronic fault finding and repair of the various gate motors from various manufactures were attended and accreditation was obtained.

Today Winks Electrical and Automation serve the entire Cape Town and surrounding areas with word of mouth for good customer service and quality access control equipment ( garage doors, garage door motors, gates, gate motors,  electric locks, CCTV, intercoms etc.) installations and repairs.

Winks Electrical is constantly referred to by manufacturers who prefer him to service and install their products due to him obeying their installation / repair specifications to the letter.
