If you are looking to make your home more secure from the front entrance and are also interested in changing the aesthetic of your home then some driveway gates could be just what you are looking for. A driveway gate will be the first thing a guest will see at your home and such should be both attractive and functional.
There is a lot of choices on the market when deciding on which type of driveway gates to have at your home, but you will want to consider the existing features and general aesthetic of your home before making a final decision on style, size and material.
First you need to choose what type of gate you are going to have, the first option is a single swing gate, these a usually up to 16’ wide any require lots of space on level ground to be opened and closed on one axis. A bi parting swing gate can be much wider and only needs a level clearance space of half the width of the entire gate. If large swing areas are not an option then the best option available to you may well be a sliding gate, they can be single or bi parting and come in some great styles.
When it comes to material choices the main options are wood and metal, both come on pre fabricated or can be built to a custom size and to your specifications. Then you need to decide whether to attach your gates to columns, square supports made of stone of bricks or metal posts.
If you don’t want to have to get out of the car in all weathers to open your gate then perhaps you should consider installing an automatic opening mechanism. You have options as to which opening method you would like to use for your gates, there is remote entry which is generally operated with a remote control which you carry in your vehicle. You can have a keypad which requires you to enter a code to gain entry to the property, movement and pressure sensor openers and even telephone entry sensors.
