1st Choice Security Provides Advice on Driveway Gates in London

We’ve all heard about rising crime rates in the UK capital over the past year. Most worrying, for homeowners in London, are reports that houses in London are 6 times more likely to be burgled than their counterparts in New York. Crime experts suggest that changes in the Metropolitan Police’s neighbourhood policing model have been instrumental in this shift.

Whilst Londoners are unable to put more police on the beat, or improve the response to reports of burglaries, they are being proactive in finding security solutions. One of the most effective ways of controlling access to your property is the installation of driveway gates. 1st Choice has certainly seen a spike in calls regarding this security feature over the past 12 months.

Installing security gates on your property is an excellent way to:

  • Reduce the potential for opportunistic crime
  • Control access to your property
  • Demonstrate your commitment to securing your premises
  • Enhance the safety of vulnerable householders

Good looking driveway gates in London increase the value of your home. They’re also proving to be a powerful differentiator when it comes to property sales.

1st Choice are London Gate Installers

Our design and installation team have been creating bespoke gates for London homeowners for more than a decade now. We’ll always start the process by visiting your property, and determining which kind of gate will suit your driveway best:

  1. Automated Swing Gates. These are the most popular model. Their installation depends on you having enough room for them. You’ll need to be able to pull off the road and have enough space for them to swing open. You would normally need a longish driveway for swing gates.
  2. Automated Slide Gates. If you don’t have enough room for swing gates, a slide gate could be the option you need. This is also an excellent option if you have an ascending driveway which would prove an obstacle to swing gates. They offer the same level of automation and security as swing gates using space to the side of your driveway.

As security gates become more popular, the range of designs continue to grow. They are now available in wood, metal or wrought iron, and can be finished in a colour or style that integrates beautifully with your property. At our initial assessment the 1st Choice Security Systems designers will discuss how you want your gates to look, and submit designs for you to choose from.

Whilst security gates are a great demonstration of security, you may wish to integrate further security features into their installation. We often recommend a door entry system, allowing homeowners to speak to, or see callers before granting them entry. We also fit CCTV systems to cover areas of the property that remain vulnerable despite the security gate installation.
