Electric Gates Dumbarton

3 reasons why you need electric gates at your Dumbarton property

Electric gates bring so many pros to a property that it can be hard to think of a reason why you should not install them! Overall, the important advantages of electric or automatic gates are three fold and here, we highlight why…


Gates and fencing are designed to keep the right things in, and the wrong things out. They also denote the boundary of a property and this is all about security.

We may not live in a place that has a high crime rate – in fact, the majority of Scotland’s cities and towns are well below the ‘average’ crime rate – but, we can still be concerned or aware of our own safety and security from time to time.

Being home alone, or leaving a property for any length of time can make us feel anxious and for many people, vulnerable.

Electric gates at your Dumbarton homes send a clear signal to any opportunistic thief – these premises are guarded. These types of gates can also withstand several tons of pressure (in some cases, depending in the material used, it would take the weight of a medium sized elephant to lean to open them…) and thus, people ram raiding their way in is far more difficult than normal. In other words, if a thief has to make an effort to gain access to a property, they will probably move on.


You may or you may not subscribe to this notion but it can be useful if you are looking to sell your property in the near future. However, there is no doubting that a property with electric or automated gates stand out from the crowd.

The sweeping opening and closing movements of gates are elegant and understated. People do think wow! This may, of course, not be the main reason for installing the gates but it is a pro that many people enjoy.
