Are you thinking of installing automatic gates at your Troon property?

The factors you need to take into account when planning the installation

When it comes to automatic or electric gates, they offer unrivalled security and convenience. But, there are some factors of which you need to be aware. By understanding these at the planning stage, you will have a far better idea of what needs to happen when the automatic gates are installed at your Troon property.

  • Safety

First and foremost are safety considerations and the responsibilities that you have as the property owner when it comes to the safe use of automatic gates.

There is no regulation that stipulates, for example, that you must have the gates maintained or serviced annually BUT, the law is clear: if the gates malfunction, causing death or harm, you will face prosecution.

Therefore, it pays to prevent problems by having your gates service on a regular, if not annual basis.

  • Space

The style of opening and closing you have when it comes to automatic gates at your Troon property depends on the amount of space that you have on your driveway. Don’t forget, there are safety considerations which may dictate the style of opening, such as a crush-free zone where objects or people can stand if the gate mechanism starts to move.

In the main, swinging gates need more room on the driveway so that they can work safely with sliding automatic gates at your Troon property being perfect when space is limited.

  • Materials

Different homeowners have different views on material and it may also come down to budget. Some people prefer the total privacy that wood-infilled gates allow them, but other people prefer being able to see who is at the gate, thus metal automatic gates at their Troon properties are perfect.

  • Budget

You will be surprised as how much more affordable automatic gates are for your home or business. It may also be possible to negotiate a better deal on your home or business insurance, if insurers know that people can only gain access to your property when they are invited or permitted.

The size of the gates, as well as the material from which they are made will affect budget. The mechanism used to open and close the gates tend to be fairly standard, although some will opt for solar powered gates, and there are examples of gates operated through the use of water in piping and so on.

There is no doubt that automatic gates at any Troon property will bring many benefits and advantages; why not find out more?
