1st Choice Installs Bespoke Automated Drive Gates in North London
Over the period 2020/21 there were 6.8k burglaries reported across North London. The number is significant given that this was a period when more people than ever before were working from home. The figure represents a 15% reduction on the previous year but it’s still way ahead of most other postcodes in the UK.
This worrying figure may be behind the increasing number of enquiries we’re receiving about automated drive gates in North London. Protecting your property against burglary isn’t ever down to one security measure, so a combination of driveway security gates, an intruder alarm system, and motion detecting residential CCTV would be our recommendation.
Bespoke Gates for Better Security
The 1st Choice Security Systems team creates bespoke driveway gates for every client. The reason? We have yet to come across a ‘standard’ driveway, which means that standard gates tend to be poor fit. Your security gates need to make a clear statement to opportunist intruders; bespoke, professionally installed automated driveway gates do this far better than their standardised counterparts.
1st Choice security engineers carry out a detailed audit of the property before starting work on the residential gates. This exposes any existing vulnerabilities and provides the opportunity for you to create a comprehensive security system for your home.
Types of Driveway Gates We Offer
Whilst your gates form part of your security protection, that doesn’t mean that they have to make your home look like a fortress. The range of driveway gates we offer are designed to enhance your home’s exterior, and match the existing aesthetics.
- Aluminium Driveway Gates. These gates are lightweight and need minimal maintenance. They are rust and corrosion resistant, and have no problem withstanding snow, sun, rain or ice. Aluminium gates won’t warp and can be finished in a range of colours, or a wood effect.
- Wooden Driveway Gates. Wooden designs are perennially popular and they look amazing. Wood is more susceptible to the weather than aluminium or metal gates though, so the kind of wood you choose is important. We tend to work with hardwoods such as European Oak, Idigbo, Meranti or Accoya.
- Metal Security Gates. An excellent choice in that they’re durable, strong and long lasting. Our steel gates are galvanised, so rust isn’t an issue, and they can be finished to integrate with your home’s existing aesthetic.
Swing or Sliding Gates?
The choice of opening for your gates comes down to taste, and location. Swing gates require a driveway without a gradient and a depth to accommodate the arc of the swing. Our engineers will work with you to achieve the style that would suit you best. We are adept at designing electric gates for small driveways, such as swing gates that fold or sliding telescopic gates.
