1st Choice Installs Residential Electric Gates in Essex

Essex is an endlessly surprising county. 1st Choice has been frequent visitors over many years, but we’re still discovering new delights. Whether it’s a Victorian seaside town, the UK’s oldest city or the UK’s newest city, the county manages to be at once ancient and totally contemporary. Installing residential electric gates in Essex is never dull, and always a pleasure.

An unfortunate corollary of 21st century life is growing crime rates. Essex is currently experiencing a rise particularly in violent and drug crime. In the most recent statistics, violent crime has increased by 4.5%. This makes it one of top 4 counties dealing with growth at this rate.


Why Install Residential Electric Gates in Essex?

Our customers tell us that additional security for their property is part of the reason for installing driveway gates in Essex. Other reasons include the desire for privacy between the front garden and the pavement or road. Equally important it the aesthetic appeal of electric gates. Bespoke designs allow you to style the entrance to your property to integrate with the exterior of your home.

Domestic Electric Gates – the Options

Once you’ve made the decision to install residential electric gates in Essex, there are a number of options for you to choose from:

  1. What Size Gates? 1st Choice engineers always reassures customers that there’s no such thing as a standard driveway. Whatever the size or shape of your drive, we will find a way to create tailored gates. We are specialists when it comes to installing gates for small driveways, sliding gates, or folding gates.
  2. Which Style of Gates? Driveway gates need to be robust in order to withstand the extremities of our summer and winter weather. For this reason, wood or metal are popular choices. The design options for your gates are endless, from minimalist steel, to wrought iron patterning, to wooden lattice work.
  3. Entry Mechanism? Driveway gates will normally open using a remote control, with a default manual override. If you’re installing gates as a ‘first line of defence’ for your property, you may wish to include a door entry system. This allows someone inside the house to speak to, or see via video, any unexpected visitors, before letting them approach the house.

At the point of handover, your 1st Choice driveway gates will have been thoroughly tested for high quality performance. A year later they will have withstood rain, snow, frost and high winds.
