The Benefits Of An Estate Gate

Large black metal gate at the entrance to a country estateThere are many ways to enhance home security, but if you are looking for an attractive way to better protect your home and property, look no further than an estate gate. A residential gate can provide added security, while giving you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your loved ones are safe.


These gates come in a variety of styles that fit many different needs. Swing gates are most popular for residential entrances as they can be very simple or quite ornate in appearance, making it easy to choose or design a gate that complements existing landscapes. Sliding, or cantilever, gates are commonly used in perimeter fences around large homes and estates where they provide easy entrance from the back or sides of the property. These home security systems can be constructed from a variety of materials such as aluminum, fiberglass, steel, and wood, and they can be manually operated or automated.


Automatic estate gates offer a higher level of security because they can be activated from inside your vehicle or from the safety of your home. Some of the technical features of automated gates include control choices such as card readers and keypad sensors, telephone and intercom entry systems, timers, and transmitters which work like garage door openers. All of these options allow you to control who has access to your property and when that access is available.


Additional safety features can include padded gate edges that stop the gate from opening or closing if it comes into contact with an obstacle, or photocells that can detect obstructions and prevent the gate from striking an object or a person. The many technical features that are available with an estate gate will provide safety and security on multiple levels.
