Are you thinking electric gates would work well at your Livingston property?

What factors do you need to consider? How do you go about designing the gates? Which ones will work best?

There are many more questions that you will have about electric gates, the design and installation of at your Livingston property. As a guide, here are a few factors to consider but every property differs, and input from a knowledgeable expert is essential...


Not all properties are gifted with huge sweeping driveways! If you do have plenty of space, and prefer a swing gate, then this is a distinct possibility. However, if space is limited, a swing gate is not the best solutions.

A swing opening gate need a large amount of room in which to operate, great when the car is not on the drive but, when you come home and park, the gate may not be able to swing shut!

To solve this issue of lack of space, sliding electric gates at Livingston properties are a possibility. Sliding down the inside of a perimeter fence, they move smoothly and cleanly out of the way when exiting the property or driving back on to it.


Many people choose to connect the electric gates to their main power supply but, in this day and age of making sure we are not consuming massive amount of energy from non-renewable resources, there are example of electric gates at Livingston properties being powered by solar energy.

However, if you are thinking of solar powers from the early days of alternative energy, then you are light years behind! Solar power panels and systems are now so sophisticated, that the power they produce is often more than what is needed. Some customers have combined driveway lights with the operation of their electric gates too!


There are many choices of styles and design for electric gates at Livingston properties; wood electric gates can give a property a huge amount of privacy but as well as maintaining the mechanics of the gate, the wood may also need some maintenance (staining or painting) from time to time.

Metal such as iron for electric gates at a Livingston property is increasing in popularity and can offer privacy, but without completely blocking the view of the road or pavement. Like wood, iron gates and fencing will benefit from the odd coat of paint, although this is relatively infrequent as many metals are now treated so that they do no rust. Of course, they also last an incredibly long time...
