1st Choice Install Automatic Gates for Driveways

1st Choice Security Systems has as its primary concern the protection of our clients’ homes and business premises. One of the ways in which we achieve this is by creating a ‘first line of defence’ in the form of automated gates for driveways. Whilst most of our clients are concerned about their security, though, it’s not always top of their list of reasons to install good looking driveway gates.

Clients are looking for a range of benefits from driveway electric gates:

  • Convenience. For many of our clients the British climate drives their decision. They want to be able to park their car without having to stand in the rain to open or shut manual gates. 1st Choice Security Systems offer a range of entry methods including remotes, a key pad or a card swipe.
  • Value-Add. Automatic gates for driveways not only keep your home or business safe, they can also be head turners. The 1st Choice design and installation team create bespoke driveway gates in either wood, metal or wrought iron. The gates can be finished to reflect the style and colour scheme of your property.
  • Security. Having automated driveway gates adds another layer of security to your property. When combined with an entry system they give you complete control over who enters your home or business. They’re also a clear demonstration that you take your security seriously. This is often enough to deter opportunistic criminals.
  • A Long Term Investment. Our security gates are built to last. Once installed, we recommend regular maintenance to ensure that the mechanism remains at peak performance. Well maintained gates can be relied upon to do their work of securing the property for a decade or more.

Swing or Slide Electric Gates?

1st Choice Security System engineers have worked with a whole variety of challenging driveways, and we’ve never yet been beaten! If you have a small, or inclined driveway, we’ll design a sliding gate system. For larger driveways, we can install swing gates as there’s plenty of room for them to open easily.

Whether we fit slide or swing gates, clients have the choice of a range of colours, designs and finishes. We can also offer options when it comes to the speed at which the gates open and close. Finally, we’ll install the entry system that suits you best, whether that’s remote, swipe, or keypad.

Comprehensive Security Systems from 1st Choice

Whatever our clients’ reason for deciding to install electric gates for their driveway, we always carry out a security audit before installation. This reveals your property’s vulnerabilities, and allows us to recommend the security installations that would enhance existing systems. We may suggest CCTV cameras, an entry system, or an upgrade of your alarm system.
