Electric Gates in Sandy

One of the most useful ways to deter burglars, whether in your home or your business, is to install electric gates in Sandy. The latest crime figures which are for November 2016 show that burglary accounted for a fraction under 10% of all crimes recorded in Sandy, so anything that you can do to make life more difficult for burglars is to be welcomed.

Certainly you may have the contents of your home insured, and of course you can replace that HDTV with a new one. However, what about the contents of your laptop or that photo of your grandmother and grandfather’s wedding in the silver frame? Here is a shocking statistic: a burglar is in your home for an average of just eight minutes. During that time he can alter your life completely. At best you will feel violated; at worst some people have had to move home because they no longer felt safe. Our Electric gates in Sandy are one more line of defence.

Methods Of Operation

Our automatic gates in Sandy can be operated in a number of different ways in order to control who has access to your property, including connecting them with a video surveillance system so that you can see who is at the gate before you open it. Members of your family can open the gates with a choice of a number of different systems, one of the simplest being a radio remote control.


A digital keypad can also be used in conjunction with driveway gates, where visitors can obtain access by means of a four digit code. A magnetic card reader can also be used, as can a number plate recognition system.

Another choice is to have an induction loop detector which utilises a cable loop under your driveway producing a magnetic field: the magnetic field changes when a vehicle passes over it so that your security gates in Sandy will open automatically as you leave your home or business without the need for any individual action. This system also means that any authorised vehicle that has entered your premises, such as a delivery van, can leave without any need for action. The gates can be set on a timer so that they will close automatically after a pre-determined time.


Swing Gates Or Sliding Gates

Our electric gates in Sandy can be of the swing or slide variety. If your driveway slopes upwards towards your home swing gates will not be practical. Sliding gates are actually less susceptible to ramming and take up less room during operation.

Operating systems can be either hydraulic or electro-mechanical. Hydraulic systems are the quietest and also have a greater resistance to wind. However, they tend to be more expensive so if wind is not a problem and you are working to a budget electro-mechanical would be the best choice.
