Choosing Metal Security Gates in North London
One of the few benefits of the Covid-19 pandemic has been the decrease in burglaries across the UK. The total number of burglaries in North London has dropped by 26.2% over the past 12 months, to 7.3K crimes reported. Unfortunately, though, this isn’t enough to topple the region’s record for having one of the highest crime rates in England and Wales.
Installing metal gates in North London isn’t just about defending your property against theft, although it does tend to be a priority for householders. Most 1st Choice customers tell us that they want to enhance their control over entry to their property. They’re also attracted by the vast range of metal security gate designs now available.
Choosing Metal Security Gates
There are 3 different types of metal security gates:
- Aluminium Driveway Gates. An aluminium automated gate won’t crack, corrode, warp or discolour. It’s lightweight material which will last for decades. Most aluminium driveway gates are powder coated for your desired colour finish.
- Steel Driveway Gates. There’s a huge range of automated steel gate designs now available, now, and they can be finished to integrate with the external décor of your home. The natural strength and corrosion-resistance of steel, makes it a durable choice for your gates.
- Wrought Iron Gates. Iron is uniquely malleable, which makes it the perfect choice for bespoke designs. Finely wrought patterning, allied to inherent strength and rust-resistance, has made wrought iron gates a popular choice since the 17th century.
