Automatic gates at your Hamilton property - a great solution!

There are many reasons to opt for automatic gates at your Hamilton property, from increasing security and privacy, to adding a boost to the 'value' of your property. But, you also want them to be safe, avoiding people or pets being 'trapped' as has happened in the past in other areas of the country. However, rest assured the safety mechanisms fitted as part of automatic gates prevent this from happening, but how do gates operate?

Different styles of opening

One choice you will need to make is how you want the automatic gates at your Hamilton property to open and close.

Some homeowners opt for a sliding style in which the gate is effectively mounted on robust 'runners' and on being signalled to open and close, they travel safely and securely along these runners, sliding along the length of a wall, railings or fencing.

This style is great for when the room on the driveway may be limited as they require little room to operate and manoeuvre.

Some Hamilton homeowners opt for automatic gates that swing open in the traditional way. Normally, they swing in to the driveway for safety reasons and can look magnificent as they arc across the driveway. However, if you are short on space at the opening of your drive, you may find this style of opening is not the right one to opt for.

Powered by electricity? What happens if there is a power cut?!

This is a frequent question with homeowners having visions of being marooned and locked in to their own properties for hours on end!

This is rarely the case with quality electrical systems having battery backup so in the case of a loss of mains power, the gates can still be operated - essential in cases where the emergency services may need to enter the property.

But does it means wires and boxes everywhere?

Not necessarily as the majority of cabling can be hidden from view. Many Hamilton homeowners with electric gate opt for an underground system of cables etc. so that the finished look is clean and tidy.

We can do this where the driveway is already in existence but many homeowners have automatic gates installed at their Hamilton properties, take the opportunity to do so whilst having the driveway either re-surfaced or re-built, or created at their new property. This way, we can ensure that all the cabling is buried in the correct way, so that it is protected from weather and other elements that may cause it to malfunction.

Automatic gates at Hamilton properties add so much more to your home than just 'looking pretty'; they are functional on so many levels from increased privacy to better security - discover how much more protected you can feel by calling Ironcraft!
