Installing Electric Sliding Driveway Gates in North London

There’s something immensely satisfying about driving into your driveway and hearing your electric gates slide shut behind you. They allow you to place a clear boundary between the external world, and the privacy of your own home. Not only that, your electric sliding driveway gates in North London add a layer of security to your property, as well as enhancing its exterior.

Why Choose Electric Sliding Gates?

Driveways in North London come in all shapes and sizes. Where the space is limited, or the driveway is built on an incline, 1st Choice recommends the use of sliding gates. The elegance of the mechanism provides a perfect entry or exit, without you having to leave your vehicle. The design can range from traditional wooden gates, to heritage wrought iron, or contemporary aluminium.

Security Gates for Driveways

Although security is rarely the primary reason for installing electric sliding gates, they provide an great opportunity to to deter uninvited visitors. 1st Choice Security Systems engineers offer a free security audit as part of the installation process. We assess the vulnerabilities of your property and offer a range of options for enhancing your family’s protection. These may include:

  • Residential CCTV. An excellent deterrent against opportunist intruders and trespassers.
  • Door Entry System. Installing either an intercom or a video entry system allows you to speak to uninvited visitors before letting them through your driveway gates.
  • Intruder Alarm System. We provide a range of alarms from ‘bells only’ to fully monitored systems.

Bespoke Design For Your Driveway Gates

Working with 1st Choice gives you absolute design flexibility, because all our electric gates are bespoke to clients’ requirements. Our goal is to provide the entrance aesthetic you desire for your home. If you are looking for privacy, we would recommend a solid wooden gate or an aluminium gate design. Otherwise you may prefer a partial privacy gate with mixed infill and featuring a decorative top.

Your gates can slide either to the right, or to the left and can be cantilevered, or run on a track. Not enough room to side the gate to either one side or the other? We have a range of options including a telescopic design, or sliding your gates on a curve along the side of your driveway. Our design engineers have a wealth of experience, and will find the solution that best suits your property.
