If you are considering having gates installed to the front of your property, then you may want to have electric ones. They offer several advantages over manual ones and can also add value to your home. You may even find that they help to bring your house insurance down and can act as a deterrent for burglars.
There are several different types of electric gates and you need to think carefully about how you will be using them in order to decide which ones will be best for you. If you often have visitors then you may want to install an intercom system on the gates too and a button to allow you to open them from inside your home. Although this may be more costly than a remote control set of gates, it can increase your security and make life a lot easier.
It is also a good idea to have pedestrian access so that you do not have to open the gates completely.
The cost of electric gates can vary massively from around a couple of thousand pounds upwards of twenty thousand pounds. It’s important to find a good, reliable company to install the gates and they will need maintaining too.
