Types of Automatic Gates:

There are many different types of automatic gates to choose from, and it is important to choose the best one to suit your personal requirements and circumstances. Here at Automation and Security in South Shields, we provide high-quality automated gates and barriers, and our company has over 20 years in the industry. Here are a few of the different types of automatic gates we supply:

There are four main types of automatic swing gates, including:

  • Balustrade gates
  • Palisade gates
  • Ornamental automatic swing gates
  • Welded mesh gates

If you're looking for a more elegant and professional look, then these gates are ideal. As well as the types of automated swinging gates listed above, we can also design and manufacture more bespoke automated gates. 

Sliding gates provide more protection than the swinging gates and more strength and durability against high pressure from adverse weather conditions or forced entry. The fact that they are so secure makes them an excellent deterrent against thieves. If you're looking for sliding gates for domestic and commercial purposes, please give us a call today. 

Bi-folding gates are extremely speedy during operation. This is excellent for organisations that only allow limited access, usually places on main roads with heavy traffic and public places. Bi-folding gates can be designed to be aesthetically pleasing and also to match your business using logos or a specific colour scheme. 

Telescopic gates share many similarities with sliding gates; however, they don't require as much space. To open, the individual sections of the gate overlap the other, which is great for security purposes if you only have a small property area. You can also paint your gates. You can also paint the gates to suit your personal style and operate using access control systems. 

Choosing the Right Motor 

There are two different types of motors, including 24v and 230v. To choose the right one for you, you need to consider the number of times your gates will open and close throughout the day. If your gates usually operate under 15 times a day, then you will be better with the 230v, but if your gates operate over 15 times a day, then the 24v electric motor will suit your gates better.

Electric Gate Safety

It is essential to ensure your electric gates are installed correctly so that they operate safely. If a highly qualified and trained professional doesn't install them, then they could be a potential health and safety risk.

Choosing an Automatic Driveway Gate

When choosing an automatic driveway, there is so much you need to take into account. For example, the style you are looking for, the colour that suits your property best, the size and layout of your driveway and much more. But, please don't worry, because that's what we're here for. 

Automatic electric gates come in a wide range of styles, colours and designs so that you can choose the best one to suit your property. All electric gates can be unique in their own way, whether you prefer the Victorian Grandeur or you would rather have something more modern. 

To choose between these two types of gates, sliding or swinging, you need to consider the size and layout of your driveway. For example, if you have a smaller driveway, you would be between off with the sliding gates; with swing gates, you need to ensure that the gates won't bump into something when the swing is fully open.

For that extra bit of privacy and security, you need access control systems. This makes it possible to control who enters and exits your property, which is useful for domestic and commercial purposes. Due to technology advancing more and more, you can now control your gates with an app on your smartphone.
