Security Gates, Why We Need Them and How They Can Benefit You

There is a lot to consider when it comes to properly securing your home or business. Almost all businesses and homes have at least some sort of implementation of security. Whatever those measures may be, they can all be enhanced by simply installing a security gate around your property line. An unsecured, open parking lot at night is an open invitation to a wanderer, vandals and burglars. Sometimes just the sight of the gate is enough to deter intruders away! “A security gate at my home?” Yes, it is not unheard of or even uncommon anymore to see homes outfitted with all types of gates, from simple to complex.

Limiting Access

Having a gate can adequately ensure you that you are blocking access to certain parts of your property. When being a business owner, this comes in handy at night as you are able to prevent situations like vehicles driving right up to your doors and loading things directly out! This could also be used to finish off that fencing system at your home, making sure that you get the same level of security.

Types of Gates

There are many options when it comes to finding the right security gate. There are simple single and double swinging gates that are for the more budget conscious, all the way up to complex systems that accept a key card or a ID from an app to bypass. Slide gates have also grown a bit in popularity over the years, allowing for all sorts of innovations and cost reductions. It is easier than ever to have a more advanced gate that isn’t just your regular turn-key lock. Another choice of gates are vertical pivot gates. These are a little bit more uncommon and usually, can cost more. This type also comes in single or double feature and is probably the most adequately secure option available.

Curb Appeal

Would you have thought that installing a gate could increase the value of your home or business? Well, it does! When installed correctly and by professionals, a gate can be a very attractive feature to potential buyers when considering all their options. Why not make sure you have the best security to offer them? Studies have shown that a security gate could increase the value of your home from 5-7 percent!
