Unravelling the mysteries of automatic gates for Lanarkshire customers

You have taken your first tentative steps into researching the various types of automatic gates for your Lanarkshire property. You have decided that they will bring many benefit to you and your family, or your business if you are a commercial customer but, it seems a little confusing. There are scientific type words and phrases that add to the confusion; there are is talk of safety regulations, responsibilities and maintenance etc.


One question you will need to answer is the type of opening 'pattern' or shape you would like the automatic gates at your Lanarkshire home or business to operate.

In deciding which one to opt for, there are various aspects you need to take in to account...

Space - some driveways are large, with plenty of room for automatic gates to operate; other situations, however, have less room and the biggest factor in choosing the right opening and closing format is space.

In a nutshell, automatic gates at Lanarkshire properties that swing open will need more space than those that slide. You may like the grandeur of the swing gate but if the gates can't close once your car is on the drive due to lack of space, they would look so grand then...

Roadway - some people think that the solution to the ‘not enough space for a swing opening' of automatic gates at their Lanarkshire properties is to have the gates swinging open and closed out onto the road… however, this presents you with significant difficulties. This present an unacceptable risk and hazard to traffic and pedestrians and, can only be done under exceptional circumstances and with constantly highlighting of the danger to passing pedestrians. This is not a recommended course of actions.

Safety - automatic gates at Lanarkshire homes and business need to operate their opening and closing mechanism in a way that is safe. Even when you have plenty of room for automatic gates at your Lanarkshire, they still need to operate in a way that means people or objects cannot be crushed - there needs to be a clear zone that ensures people and pets cannot be crushed!

And don't forget, automatic gates at Lanarkshire properties need to be properly maintained, not just so that they operate without a glitch but that they are safe to use, time and time again.
