Five Reasons to Choose Bi-Fold Wooden Gates
This is a great time to be installing driveway gates! As demand has grown over the past few years, so has the choice of materials, and the range of solutions. Now, no matter whether your driveway is large or small, shallow or deep, there will be a gate that’s perfect for your needs. Bi-fold wooden gates one of the most popular requests our design and installation team get. Why? Because they look great and solve a load of problems.
The 1st Choice team has come up with 5 reasons why our customers tend to choose bi-fold wooden gates:
1. Space Management
Swing or sliding gates are easy to install if you have either a sweeping drive, or plenty of space on either side. If, however, you are tight for space, a more ingenious solution is required. A swing gate needs enough space to pass through 90°. The bi-fold gate cuts that space in half, making them perfect for driveways with limited depth.
2. Faster Opening Times
The concept of automatic driveway gates that sweep open on your return home is a nice one. But swing gates can take a while to provide clearance. Bi-fold gates cut down the tapping on the dashboard time by half. Plus, the elegance of the mechanism is something that’s a pleasure to witness.
3. Trackless Bi-Fold Gates
At one time all bi-fold gates required a track to be laid in the ground to anchor the passage of the gates as they opened. Now a trackless system has been developed. So there’s no more track cleaning maintenance to carry out, and installation is easier than ever.
4. Bi-Fold Gates Protect Your Property
The security of your home may not be a primary reason for installing driveway gates, but it’s an integral benefit. Bi-fold gates are a proven deterrent against doorstep scams, opportunist criminals and trespassers. 1st Choice Security Systems recommends the installation of a door entry system which allows you to identify visitors before giving access.
5. Wooden Gates Look Great
Wooden gates lends an air of distinction and permanence to any driveway – so long as they’re well maintained. Wood is more susceptible to the weather that iron, aluminium or steel, so you need to choose your material carefully. We would recommend European Oak, Meranti or Idigbo – all hard woods that can withstand the British climate.
