Types of gates

Increasingly there is a demand for security as well as accessibility in domestic property and this can be provided by both wooden and metal gates, with a variety of installation methods and opening technologies.

When researching what type of gates you would like one of the first questions you need to answer is what materials do I want to use? The standard choice is between wood and metal.

Wooden gates can enhance both the exterior appearance of property and the privacy of a driveway, while well-designed metal gates offer a secure and long-lasting enhancement to security as well as appearance.

The next question is what would be the most convenient way for me to control the gates? There is a huge range of gate opening technology available, from keypad technology through to handheld devices.

What to look for

If you are interested in buying automatic / electric gates look for a company which manufactures and installs a wide range of gates both wooden and electrical. They should be capable of being automatically operated through hand-held transmitters, intercoms or even mobile phones. A good gate company should be happy to advise, design, install and maintain the specific gates you require.

As technologies have improved so has the ease with which you can remotely operate your gates. One of our clients asked for the ability to operate gates from Australia to permit access while she was out of the country, and this was arranged without a problem. She was able to use her phone to provide access there and then.

The availability of mobile technology today combines convenience with safety and a good company will constantly seek to update the options it offers to clients. Look for gate companies that can demonstrate their experience and can build a gate to your exact requirements.
