Are you thinking of investing in automatic gates for your Greenock property?

If so, you are in good company with more homeowners realising the potential of automatic or electric gates for their properties but why buy them? What is it that automatic gates give you that ordinary ones can't...?

  • Security & safety - the two most obvious benefits (and the reason why many Greenock homeowners invest in automatic gates) are the increase in security and safety that they offer. For example, your home or car is less likely to be vandalised or opportunistic theft.

Likewise, in terms of safety, they keep your children and pets in, as well as preventing access to unauthorised people.

  • Convenience - how many times do you see driveways that have gates that are never closed? This is because getting in and out of the car to shut them is not only a nuisance, but can be annoying when the weather is whipping a gale or pouring with rain. Automatic gates at your Greenock property will open and shut at the press of a button...
  • Reap the rewards! - many homeowners constantly look for improvements that can be made to their properties that have a positive impact on its value. Automatic gates can have a direct, positive impact as they clearly set the boundary of your property, as well making your home and garden more secure, a plus in any property search.

Do you need planning permission for automatic gates to be installed as a Greenock property?

Generally speaking, to replace gates with automatic ones you do not need to have planning permission, however, with all major changes to any property, it is always advisable to check with your local planning department first. You may find that it is not so much the fact the gates are automated, but the proposed height of the gates, as well as their design that could be under scrutiny.

How close to automatic gates do you need to be for them to work remotely?

This can vary but the typical range is between 30 and 80 metres.

Can people or pets be trapped in the gates?

There have been horror stories in the past about people, and children, being crushed with devastating circumstances by electric gates. As a result, newly installed electric gates need to meet a series of safety specifications, from installing sensors that detect objects in the way, as well as zones or gaps that prevent crushing when swing gates open. Some automatic gates can also be installed with a manual over-ride too.

What about the postman?!

Many people worry that their properties will be too secure and that deliveries from couriers and the postman will be fraught with difficulties! There are many options from placing a post box at the end of the driveway to video systems for callers.

Automatic gates for your Greenock properties are worth the investment; why not take a closer look?
