Now that you’re considering an electric driveway gate for your property be it commercial or residential, you can quickly become overwhelmed with the many different options available to you. With an electric driveway gate solution for every type of space, understandably there’s a lot to choose from. Here we break down some of the key features and points for you to consider when choosing the right gate for you. As always though, our in-house experts are here to answer any of your questions and happy to help you navigate the many options available.
Sliding driveway gates can slide to the left or right and offer a great solution when the space is limited, prohibiting the use of a swinging gate. Sliding gates are available in a range of sizes; narrow & wide, short & tall. They run on tracks or a cantilever system, and when open, the space is completely clear with no obstructions enabling easy access through the whole opening.
Sliding gates can be the perfect solution if the entrance to the driveway is positioned on a slope, whereby the incline wouldn’t otherwise allow a swinging gate to open.
Sliding driveway gates have many different styles and appearances as you can see explained here. They can provide a grand appearance from the outside while other options may appear more modest. Your choice would depend on personal preference, as with either option, there are no compromises to be made when it comes to driveway security. Sliding driveway gates offer added security, kerb appeal and privacy. They can be secured using hook locks or automation. The automatic option provides greater driveway security, avoiding the need to leave the car to enter and exit the driveway. An electric gate intercom can be used in conjunction with a sliding gate to add even further security and convenience, allowing you to see who is attempting to enter your driveway before allowing them access.
Swing gates, unlike sliding gates, do not require any steel beams or concrete work. The installation is generally a lot easier, and overall swing gates are usually cheaper than sliding gates when it comes to ongoing maintenance.Swing gates can be secured by a latch or locked with either a padlock, deadlock or keypad lock. They can be used manually or have the option to be automated. Either option provides peace of mind and added driveway security to your property, along with additional privacy and kerb appeal. As with the sliding gate option, there’s an option to add an electric gate intercom, again adding an additional layer of security and convenience.
