Installing a driveway gate at the entrance of your home not only enhances the appearance of your property, it gives it a look of grandness. And when you choose to automate those gates it not only makes life easier it increases the security of your home and acts as a great deterrent to opportunist burglars.

There’s nothing wrong with choosing manual gates but if you are looking for ease of use and increases security then installing automated gates gives you that control. You control who you let in, and out.

  • You can keep pets and children safe when they play outside, safe from busy roads, from passers-by, from walking off and getting lost, etc.
  • You can keep out potential thieves, preventing them from scoping out your property and deterring them with the potential of getting trapped with the gates of your property, with no quick exit and no idea what other security measures you have in place beyond the security gates.

We usually have potential customers concerned about being kept in or out of their own home if there’s a power cut; the truth is there’s no need to worry, our gates have a manual override that enables you to open and close them manually without issue.

Choosing the Right Automated Gate to Secure your Home

Installing automated gates as a form of security to protect your home a family is a wise choice. However, with different materials and styles of gates available, deciding which type best fits your requirements can be a minefield. In this article, GateKraft discuss the merits of closed view and open view gates to help determine which type of gate best fits your needs.

closed view gateClosed View Gates

Closed view gates are solid gates that don’t allow passers-by visibility of your property. Therefore, this must be the obvious choice to enhance security, right?

Closed view gates are often likely to deter burglars because:

  • They have no visibility of what’s on offer for the taking
  • They have no idea of any additional security measures in place to protect your property

In conclusion, burglars are less likely to risk getting caught if the above factors are unclear and will most likely target properties with less protection.

Open View Gatesopen view gate

On the other hand, open view gates offer visibility to neighbours and passers-by, of any suspicious activity taking place within your property, offering the potential to expose and stop burglars.
