Why Choose Automatic Gate Systems for Residential and Commercial Use


May 25, 2022

Safety is one of our basic human needs. People need to feel that they and their families are secure and protected from harm. This demand has increased in recent years, generating a rise in the security equipment market and the industry has thrived ever since. This has made modern security systems more cost-effective and approachable. If you’re looking for the best protection for your home or office, an automatic gate system would be your best option. To help you along your decision-making process, we’ll dive into the benefits of automatic gate openers and how they can be used to improve security for residential and commercial properties so you can rest easy.


What Are the Benefits of Automatic Gates?

Gate automation has been around for years, but they’ve just become more cost-effective for anyone who is looking for an affordable and practical security system for their home or office. Automatic gate systems provide a sense of security and safety for property owners, and they can also be used to control the flow of traffic in and out of a property. Sliding gate operators offer a variety of features like:


Increased security: Automatic gate systems can be equipped with various security features, such as CCTV cameras, intercoms, and key fobs, to ensure that access is only permissible to designated individuals.


Easy and convenient: Slide gates are easy to use. You can push them to the side when walking in and out without much effort. For an even easier experience, installing an automatic gate opener, which attaches an electrically powered motor to your gate system, means you can open and close your gate with the push of a button or scan of a key fob. This is perfect for staying in your car during inclement weather or in commercial properties with several visitors constantly going in and out.


Durability: Steel gates can weather all conditions and are designed to withstand the routine forces exerted for sliding back and forth while still maintaining their high functionality. Automatic sliding gates have wheels and a track, so you can be sure that they won’t be easily damaged from friction. Keeping your automatic sliding gate clean and well-maintained means you can avoid damage and expensive repairs.


Aesthetics: The main purpose of installing a sliding gate system is for the best protection, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it with style! Automatic sliding gate systems for residential and commercial use come in a variety of colors, designs, and styles, adding aesthetic value and protection to your house or office. You can customize your sliding gate to complement your property’s overall look and Access Professional Systems offer several designs and finishes to choose from.


Sliding Gates Vs. Swinging Gates

The match-up of the century! This is usually the first thing you consider when deciding to install a gate system on your residential or commercial property. While swinging gates can be cheaper, it’s usually because they require less hardware. This can often cause the gate to malfunction and require more repairs or maintenance in the long run. Outwardly opening swing gates are also less safe. When you open swing gates outward, visitors may know how far the gate swings toward the direction of their car and can damage it. If the visitor panics and tries to back up to avoid the swing, there is a possibility they could hit another car behind them or block street traffic or a busy footpath near a road. Sliding gates do not carry this risk. They use less space, are cheaper to maintain, and increase the value of your property. Automatic sliding gate systems are easy to operate, long-lasting, and the ideal type of gate system if you are looking for extra security without sacrificing convenience and efficiency. I think we have a winner!
