Choosing to automate your gates, should they be a new set of gates or existing gates, provides your home and entranceway with the following benefits.
They are convenient & secure
Behind a set of closed and locked gates, you can be confident that your property and possessions are secured. However many homeowners with manual gates find that they choose to leave them open rather than get out of their car and close them after they have passed through.
Automatically closing electric gates removes this inconvenience by shutting after you have passed through and irreversible motors effectively lock the gates upon closing. You can be confident your gate is secure and your gates will prevent unwanted access.
Electric gates are an investment and can provide status
A great looking and stylish set of electric gates can add real value to your house. Many previous electric gate owners will put purchasing automated gates to the top of their list when they move house.
A well maintained home with an impressive entrance can be a real plus to the locality. At Scroll Gates we find that once one property on the street has fitted electric gates, we get multiple enquiries from neighbours looking to improve their homes.
Underground Gate Automation
Underground Gate motors sit below the ground at the hinge ends of the gate. Hidden from view, underground electric gate motors affect the look of your entranceway the least. Specialist electric motors or hydraulic motors are designed to operate in damp and wet conditions.
Worm/Ram Drive Gate Automation
Powerful post mounted operators often also described as ram style motors. Electrically operated versions function on a screw driven system shortening the fulcrum of the gate causing it to swing open. The design of the motor is usually fairly low profile and although visible from within the property can be less obtrusive than some styles.
Articulate Arm Gate Automation
Post mounted motors with long reach articulated arms that offer great flexibility especcially on gates attached to deep brick pillars. Smart engineering ensures the articulation never scissors for safety. Articulated arm motors are often more simple to install and from the exterior of the property can be almost invisible.
Sliding Gate Automation
Especially suited to driveways that are limited for space, on a steep incline or where the drive turns sharply to the left or right. Sliding gate motors move the gate parallel to the entrance either on a track or using a cantilever system. Often involving a little more initial groundwork and requiring slightly more maintenance, sliding gates can offer the advantages of electric gates in situations where automated swing gates would be impossible.
Used to control access to premises where there is a moderate to heavy flow of passages, but still offers a smart and professional look. Other safety features can be incorporated to enhance the security. These are best used for car parks; residential apartment buildings, offices or commercial units where there is a high volume of traffic.
