Guide To Choosing the Right Gates for Your Home

Guide To Choosing the Right Gates for Your Home

June 15, 2017

Most residential and commercial properties need gates. If there is fencing around a property, then gates will be required. What are the options? What suits your needs best.

Let’s look at a few possibilities.

Automatic Gates

Automatic gates are basically any type of gates with a gate operator installed. These types of gates are the most convenient as they are operated remotely. As an example, gates that open up onto the driveway would normally require the driver to exit the vehicle and manually open the gate. Not so much fun if it’s bucketing down with rain.

If you want complete security with convenience in mind, then automatic gates are the way to go. Gates can be made to match your fencing style, and many features can be added to make them even more secure.

When so many other things in life are now automated, why not do the same with your gates?

Sliding Gates

Sliding gates are designed to maximise space. In areas where there is no room for swing gates, sliding gates really are the answer. They are perfect for both residential and commercial properties and can be made to perfectly match your existing fencing.

These gates can be automated or manually operated and work really well in confined residential situations where space is limited. They are very secure and look really modern and stylish in a range of colours and sizes.

Pedestrian Gates

The pedestrian gate is designed solely for pedestrian access. Often you will find them positioned beside the driveway gate, down the side of the house or commercial building, or to offer access to and from the rear of the property. Pedestrian gates might just be small, simple gates to keep children and pets in, or they could be larger gates to offer complete security.

If you have automatic gates installed for driveway and vehicle access, having a pedestrian gate cuts down on the wear and tear of people using the automatic gates when it’s not really needed.

Swing Gates

Swing gates are your classic style of gate. They never go out of fashion and have some distinct advantages. They can be motorised or manually operated and they can be used for driveway access or for pedestrian gates. Keep pets and small children in and unwanted visitors out with an automatic, lockable swing gate. They are perfect for homes, apartment buildings and commercial properties.
