Private Driveway Gates East Ayrshire
It is important that homeowners in East Ayrshire feel their property is safe and secure. An automatic gate for your driveway should encompass an elegant appearance and provide security for your home.
We can design classic and modern gates with an intercom, key fob and exit sensors. This allows you to admit only those you want and keep your entranceway secure at all other times.
Driveway gates intended for security are made in two main forms metal and composite.
Metal gates are the gold standard for security. These gates include bars and pointed tops, usually steel or wrought iron.
They are also visually appealing, especially when powder-coated or painted. They can include designs and artwork to look elegant and secure your home.
Composite Gates For Homes In East Ayrshire
Composite gates are constructed using metal and wood or composite materials. They are light and versatile as we can paint them any colour you wish. Composite gates are also much lighter than traditional gates, making them easy and quick to install and automate.
You can also save money on your electric gate by choosing composite materials, which cost less than steel and iron. The biggest advantage of composite gates is they provide privacy. People outside cannot see through the gate, offering privacy and security. This can be especially useful for those who have a garden looked onto from public streets or pathways.
Commercial Electric Gates East Ayrshire
With many commercial and industrial businesses based in East Ayrshire, more and more companies are looking to automatic gates for ease of access and security for valuable stock and assets.
Striking the right balance between ease of access for employees and suppliers and securing your building and goods is vitally important. Automatic gates allow you to provide ID cards for staff and trusted suppliers and monitor who is on your property at any given time.
Palisade gates are the most common for commercial properties. These gates can be provided in steel for strength and painted with anti-climb paint. They can also be complimented with matching railings or fences, which Abbey Gates can provide in East Ayrshire.
We can design blended composite and palisade gates for businesses that want the added security of blocking any goods or assets from public view. These gates offer the privacy of normal composite gates but with pointed palisade tops, which can be decorative or with pointed tops for security.
Operating Automatic Gates
How you use your electric gate depends on your property and personal preferences. Most people with an electric gate in their home will opt for a key fob which attaches to their car or home keys.
We can provide as many key fobs as you need for your home. It is common to have an intercom to access those without a key fob, such as delivery drivers, visitors and local service providers.
Our electrician will come to your home or business when your gate is installed, provide power, and set up your intercom. They will also install any sensors and arms that are needed.
For commercial customers in East Ayrshire, we can provide various levels of intercom and access options
Automatic gates offer you convenience and security. Gates add a distinguished look and security to a property, but they are often left open because it is inconvenient to leave your car and operate a manual gate.
Leaving your gate open even for only part of the day reduces your security and allows members of the public to see in and possibly enter your private property.
The entrance will only be open for a few minutes with an electric gate. You, your family or your employees will not be inconvenienced, and your privacy and security are assured.
What Type of Electric Gate is Best?
Most people have an idea in mind for their electric gates. How they should look, and what they can do for them and their property. Our engineer will come to your property and meet with you to discuss your options. They can offer you a catalogue of gates or design one according to your wishes.
The engineer will advise you on using the space you have and help you choose the material and style that best suits your purpose and property.
The most common type of domestic electric gate is a driveway gate. Manual gates are inconvenient for those who take a car through regularly.
This means that most people leave their gates open most of the time to avoid getting in and out of their car to open and close them. Leaving gates open eliminates the security and privacy offered by driveway gates.
Electric Security Gates
Keeping your gates closed and restricting entry to only a few people offers a significant upgrade in security itself.
We can provide elegantly designed steel and wrought iron palisade automatic gates for additional protection. This type of gate is mostly metal bars and pointed tops but can also include decorative designs and be powder coated for an elegant appearance.
This blend of security and a stunning appearance make these gates one of the most popular types in East Ayrshire properties.
Composite Privacy Gates
Increasingly, homeowners in East Ayrshire are looking for security and privacy from their driveway gates. Composite gates can offer a metal structure and wooden panels on the front. These block anyone outside from seeing in through the electric gate.
Composite gates are also lighter than conventional gates and, therefore, easier and smoother to automate. We can also add an extra layer of security by placing pointed palisade tops on composite gates if needed.
Composite gates are robust but lighter than steel or wrought iron. This makes them much easier to automate, reduces the electricity needed, and provides a faster and smoother opening.
Ornate Garden Gates
Not all gates are for high security or privacy. Often you want to control access to part of your property. A decorative electric gate is ideal for well-kept gardens and properties with public and private spaces.
We provide automatic entry gates for parks, gardens and hotels.
You can choose the level of security, but commonly a scroll gate will suffice. Scroll garden gates are made of thinner metal, have decorative curls and designs and are available in various colours. These gates are easy to automate, and we can provide key fobs and buzzers to allow access to those who need it.
Commercial Property Electric Gates
Both industrial and commercial properties in North Ayrshire can benefit from the additional security and privacy offered by electric gates.
Commercial automatic gates allow you to protect your staff and inventory on your property. We can provide an enhanced intercom package with ID cards, video intercoms and remote access for commercial customers.
If you are upgrading your security, we can also install matching palisade or composite fencing for your property.
Folding and Sliding Gates
Do you want electric gates for your property but aren’t sure how to manage the space or shape of your property entrance? You might think that a sloping driveway or limited space for a gate to move make an electric gate impossible, but there are several options for these situations.
A folding gate is ideal if you are limited by space at the side, front, or back. The gate folds away when opened, keeping away from blocking public highways.
If you have more space at the side, a sliding gate is an excellent way to make the most of it. A sliding gate can slide to the side as one or split into two sides. The effect is elegant and best for those with properties that open out onto public roads or pathways.
