The benefit of automatic gates at Ayrshire properties

The vast majority of places across Scotland are safe; reported crime in Scotland in recent years has fallen year on year. In 2014, statistics showed that in the previous 4 years, crime had dropped by 22% but, for some people, feeling safe in their own home is important to them.

Automatic gates at Ayrshire properties can bring so many benefits, one of which is security...

Feel safe

Undoubtedly, one of the main benefits of automatic gates at any property, anywhere is the feeling of being safer in your home or business premises. Many thieves strike when an opportunity presents itself, such as an open garage door whilst you are mowing the lawn... but with an automatic gate firmly shut, it sends a clear message that to attempt to thieve from the property will take effort and perseverance, something that will instantly put thieves off.

Did you know...?

Automatic gates also have a 'force rating' and is a statistic that suggests how much force or pressure needs to be applied to a gate in order to force it open. In the case of automatic gates, this pressure will need to exceed 500kg or more - equivalent to the weight of 5 baby elephants!


Automatic gates at Ayrshire properties offer unrivalled convenience too; unlike manual gates, there is no need to exit your vehicle to open and close the gates - it is all done for you, with the handy click of one button! In some designs, you can be 20 metres away and the controller can still reach the opening/closing mechanism of the gate, meaning they can be wide open to welcome to you home as you turn in to your driveway!

No more diving in and out the car, avoiding the rain...


We have already seen that some automatic gates can withstand the weight of five baby elephants, but this is not the only way that these gates are robust. Made from tough iron, metal automatic gates can operate over and over again, with minimal maintenance and with reliability too.

They look sensational too

Finally, an added benefit is the overall look that automatic gates add to an Ayrshire property; who wouldn't like and welcome the decadence of gates that automatically spring open and close as you enter and exit your property?

Adding aesthetic value is one thing, but, if you are thinking of selling in the near-future, professionally designed, installed and maintained automatic gates can also add value to your home in the sense that this additional 'feature' adds an extra something that other properties may not have...
