Automatic Gates at Your Kirkintilloch Property - What You Need to Know!

Automatic gates offer a level of convenience and versatility that makes them an increasingly popular choice for home and business owners. But there are some key facts about these gates that you need to know:

#1 They must be MAINTAINED

The responsibility for the safe use of automatic gates lies with the property owner. Thus, irrespective of whether you installed the gates or not, if you use them as electric gates, you need to be confident they are safe for use.

This means ensuring that they are well-maintained and that they meet all the latest safety requirements for use. The only way to be confident about this is to have the gates maintained and serviced on a regular basis.

#2 There must be a CRUSH-FREE ZONE

A crush-free zone is a space in which a person or animal could fit if the safety measures on the gates fail. Modern automatic gates at Area 2 properties have sensors that prevent the gates from moving should someone or something break its beam.

However, should this fail, and someone is walking through the gates and the continue to operate, there is a space where they can wait until the gate is either open or closed.

#3 They must open ONTO YOUR PROPERTY

Automatic gates are so versatile that it is no wonder that more and more home and business owners are looking to install these gates.

But, when they open, the gates must either swing or slide open on their property, and not on to the road or across a pavement. Bear this in mind when designing your gates: depending on the size of the gate, you will need an arc of opening space for those that swing open. If space is limited, consider a gate that slides open down the inside of a perimeter wall or fence.

#4 They are CONVENIENT

You can gain access via a key code, a fob or a sensor placed in vehicles that mean the gates start to open automatically when it detects a signal from your car.
This means no more jumping in and out of your car, battling the elements and the darkness to open and close gates…

#5 They are a DETERRENT

As beautiful in design and style as they may be, these kinds of gates send a very clear message to people who have not been given authority to access your premises: stay away!

To force them open is virtually impossible, something that no burglar or thief wants to try.

But, they are an affordable option for home and business. For more information on our design and installation process, call our team today on 0141 883 8383.
