Securing Your Family and Your Property

Driveway security gates provide a first line of defence, with a clear message to would-be intruders that security is taken seriously. This has been found to be an effective deterrent against opportunist burglars, and doorstop scammers

How to Decide On Your Driveway Gates’ Functionality

The size and depth of your driveway has a large part to play in determining the functionality of your driveway security gates. The goal of 1st Choice designers, though, is to deliver on clients’ preferences wherever possible. Our driveway security gates in North London offer 4 functionalities:

  1. Swing Gate. This popular option requires a driveway depth equivalent to the arc of the gate. The surface of the driveway also needs to be flat to prevent catching.
  2. Bifold Gate. A swing gate for small driveways. A bi-fold gate is made up of 4, rather than 2, panels which fold in on themselves when opening. This halves the arc of the gate.
  3. Sliding Gate. If your driveway is shallow, or built on an incline, a sliding gate is an excellent solution. It runs on a track is installed which extends into the area on either side of the drive.
  4. Telescopic Gate. Where a sliding gate is preferred but there’s limited space available, 1st Choice engineers can create a telescopic driveway gate. Panels slide parallel to each other as they open, with reduced lateral space requirements.

It makes sense that driveway security gates should look serious, but they don’t need to look austere. The 1st Choice team create driveway security gates for North London homes in the following materials:

  • Wooden Driveway Gates wood is an extremely popular choice and there’s a range of textures, colours, and prices to choose from.
