Security Gates for Driveway

Good Looking Security Gates for Driveway Access

We all want our family to be secure within their home, but that doesn’t have to mean that we build a fortress round them. Modern security gates look far more decorative than they used to, whilst still doing an excellent job of protecting the household. If you’re looking for automatic driveway gates that integrate with your property’s aesthetic, whilst keeping criminals at bay, 1st Choice Security Systems has the solution.

Effective Security Gates for Driveway Access

Police advice to households wanting to reduce the risk of crime always includes the installation of driveway gates. Their presence sends a clear message to burglars that security is firmly on the agenda. In the majority of cases this is enough to dissuade the opportunist criminal, vandal or doorstep scammer. In order to lower the risk even further, 1st Choice Security System engineers recommend the integration of:

  •  Residential CCTV providing 24 hour surveillance of your driveway, and evidence that can be used in court, should an intrusion occur.
  •  Door Entry System allowing family members to communicate with visitors via video or audio, before granting them access to your property.

Bespoke Security Gates

For many 1st Choice clients, how their security gates look is as important as the protection they provide. We create bespoke gates designed to the specific requirements of a property. Automatic gates for driveways tend to be made out of wood, steel or wrought iron, and can be customised to incorporate personal design and a finish that matches your home’s exterior.

It would be great if every driveway was a standard width and depth, but that’s certainly not the case. So we tailor the shape and operating mechanism of our electric gates to fit your driveway:

  • Swing Gates. If you have a driveway deep and level enough to allow for the arc of a swing gate, this is a popular, durable choice.
  • Sliding Gates. Where your driveway presents an incline, or is not deep enough to accommodate a swing gate, sliding gates are the ideal solution.
  • Folding Gates. Where the driveway lacks width and depth, 1st Choice can install folding gates for driveways, utilising an elegant bi fold mechanism.

Security Audit for Your Home

1st Choice Security Systems offer every client a free security audit prior to designing and installing automatic gates. Our experienced security engineers assess the current vulnerabilities, and offer a range of recommendations for lowering the risk of criminal activity. The audit allows us to determine the optimum design of your security gates for driveway access.
