Choosing automatic gates for your Alloa property - made easy!

For many people, automatic gates for their Alloa property are more than just a 'status symbol'; they are a welcome form of additional security.

Gates, whether they are automated or not, give an outward sign to those with intentions of theft or other criminal activity, that your property is well guarded. Studies show that thieves tend to be opportunistic in nature and automatic gates are the perfect foil - they present far too much effort to climb over!

And so, you may have made the decision to choose and fit automatic gates at your Alloa property but that is only the first of many decision you will need to make. Here are a few others...

Material - decided what you want the gates made from is an important choice. On one hand, you want to choose the material that you like and fits with your budget but, you also have a third consideration; the nature of your property.

The majority of gates are usually made from one of two materials - wood or metal.

  • Wrought iron is increasing in popularity, mainly because it is low maintenance, looking good for a long time and also gives a privacy barrier, but without blocking the view of the end of the drive or roadway completely.
  • Wood is also popular, especially for those Alloa homeowners looking for complete privacy; wood forms an effective barrier that prevents people from looking directly onto the driveway, but is also great for when you have children or pets playing in the garden too. Wood, depending on the type used, may need some maintenance at some point in the future, such as a coat of stain or varnish.

Design - once you have decided on the material, you now need to consider design and this is where the look and era of your property may play a part. Automatic gates for any Alloa property need to match or complement the look of it; a modern home needs a modern gate, minimalist in design, whereas an older style property can relate well to more ornate designs.

Style of opening - once you have all these decisions made, you now need to look at how you want the automatic gates at your Alloa homes to open and close. Larger drives can accommodate swinging gates (swing gates must open on to you drive and NOT the road way) and there is also a sliding open and close mechanism style too. This means the gates graceful slides open along the inside of your perimeter wall.

Automatic gates at your Alloa property can add more than just convenience; they offer security and elegance too!
