DESCRIPTION

Gates serve two purposes: to keep unwanted people out and to prevent people (or pets) inside from going out. A typical gate is usually made of either metal or wood materials with a lock. Many households don’t have problemsoperating these manually, although there are instances when they wish they hada helping hand. For example, closing and opening the gate when it’s raining or leaving the house with a vehicle.

Why Homeowners Prefer Motorised GatesBROADWALK151 Balcatta RoadBalcatta WA 60211300 112 333mail@boardwalk.com.auhttp://www.boardwalk.com.au/Gates serve two purposes: to keep unwanted people out and to prevent people (or pets) inside from going out. A typical gate is usually made of either metal or wood materials with a lock. Many households dont have problems operating these manually, although there are instances when they wish they had a helping hand. For example, closing and opening the gate when its raining or leaving the house with a vehicle.

2. This helping hand could be in the form of a motorised gate. This allows homeowners to access their gate from at least a 20-meter distance through a control system. As the gate opens automatically, they dont have to struggle opening the lock, or have to get out of the vehicle to open and close the gate.Motorised gates are difficult to open due to their irreversible geared motors. Most fencing companies also offer magnetic locks to make sure that these are closed shut. A gate can hold up to 500kg, which makes it difficult for burglars to force the gate open. Along with the right design, it could guarantee the safety of the property and everything else thats in it.Added Security 3. Motorised gates come in different designs, such as wooden slats or steel frames. Unlike the traditional types, these are customisable to the needs of every homeowner. The gate doesnt only swing open, but could also be slid, lifted up, or drawn back, depending on the installation.Customisable Opening 4.

Like any other household, protecting their property, possessions, and loved ones is the main priority. Burglary rates may be decreasing, but its not a guarantee that homeowners feel 100% safe. In addition, those who are planning to sell properties with motorised gates could expect an increase, probably 10% to 15%, on the selling price.Its true that gates are beneficial for property owners, but these still have flaws. Advances in technology, however, could fix these with the help of a motorised system.
