Electric security gates are suitable for residential properties, industrial areas and all types of private and public safety. They prevent the entry of unauthorised people and intruders into a property and increase your security. An electric security gate is managed through a fully integrated electric motor mechanism and results in reducing potential intrusion or trespassing. A security risk is at its lowest with an electric sliding gate in the frame, as it cannot be opened easily without involving a very strong, external and applied force. The following features of electric security gates make them the most stable and strong throughout the UK and a must have for any home security upgrade:
● Automated Motor – An automated motor is used in electric gates in the UK for the quiet and smooth control and management of the electric gates. This automated motor provides the electric sliding gate with the required power to operate effectively and with control. Therefore, they are powerfully held in place with irreversible mechanical units and during a power failure, a Pass Key is used to manually operate it. This feature also offers additional safety provisions in case of emergency and the potential need to manually control an electric driveway gate for access to a property.
● Safety edges – Safety edges are commonly fitted in electric sliding gates in the UK where the ground surface is uneven. Safety edges prevent the electric sliding gates from crashing against a carrier, object or surface. It is used to get rid of dangers from entrapment and does so by sending signals to the primary board that shall restrict the operation of electric gates in such conditions.
● Photocells – In the UK, nearly all electric security gates have photocells installed as a key feature for safety and security. Photocells in an electric sliding gate are placed in the corners opposite to each other in a way that if a person or an object is in between the security gate, it does not close, injuring the person or damaging the object that may be caught in the space. The photocells have sensors that send an infrared beam to another photocell. When this beam is broken, it sends a signal to mark that there is something in between the electric gate and helps photocells identify it and take the relevant safety measures.
● Warning alarms or devices – Sirens or flashing LED lights are sometimes used as a warning to raise an alarm during a forceful malfunction or damage to the electric security gate. Additionally, the warning devices in electric sliding gates in the UK give warnings when the gate is incorrectly operated or is about to operate.
● Electronic System – Electric sliding gates in the UK now come with a timed and scheduled electronic system. This system has internal switches that safely and efficiently operate the electronic motor within these sliding gates.
● Remote access & gate intercoms – Security driveway gates are an important part of the safety in your home or work, but without remote access or a gate intercom this could be a time consuming feature of an automated gate installation. With remote access and gate intercoms, you are able to control the operating functions and therefore the use of any electric security gate without being present at the security gate’s location. So guests can be given access to a property or area through a gate intercom system, which could have either voice or video features, or both.
