Swinging automatic gates at your Stirling property - the pros and cons

Gates, at one time, segregated land and property. They were a practical addition to keep livestock off areas that were considered for recreation or private land, such as a garden.

But, like most thinks, times have change the use of the gate; they are now just as much for beautification as they are for practical reasons. They are also great for adding security to a property as well, in many case, mush needed privacy too.

But the humble gate has moved on; it has been revolutionised with technology and electricity; no longer do you have to jump in and out of the car in rain and wind to open and close the gate!

And so, if you are looking for automatic gates for your Stirling property, then you have many decision to make; from material to design, but also how the gates will open and close.

Many people opt for the swinging gate, a great addition to any Stirling home but there are pro and cons...

Space - swinging gates will demand that give a large portion of your drive to the operation of these gates. It is possible to use to just one gate instead of two that open but don't forget that current regulations state the minimum amount of clearance needed to operate automatic gates at Stirling properties (and beyond!).

However, as well as meeting these current regulations, having the right amount of space to be able to fit the car on the driveway is important too. Automatic gates at a Stirling property will not be worth the money for them if they cannot open and close with the car on the drive - gates are there to protect the property!

Can they open outwards?

Again, there are various guidelines and regulations that will dictate whether this is an option or not. Automatic gates at Stirling properties need to be operate safely, without presenting a hazard or danger to you or the general public.

If your gates open outwards, they will need to do so on your property or land. If they open out on to the highway, across a driveway for example, you may find that they contravene several highway regulations. You will also need to ensure that any pedestrians passing your property at the time you automatic gates are being opened or closed will be made aware of the operation about to take place.

Budget - but, swinging gates are easier on the budget for one simple reason and that is simplicity itself. Swinging gates require far less mechanical parts and components than other style of opening, such as sliding or vertical access gates.

For this reason, they are easier to fit and operate, as well as maintain and so swinging automatic gates at your Stirling property could be the gates you are looking for!
