Gates are installed for protection. If you think about the spelling of the word “gate”, it could even be seen as an acronym: Guarding Against True Enemies! (Isn't that peculiar?) This could be the actual reason why we all spend so much money on new gate installation. If we didn't care about security matters, things would be simpler. There would be no need to build up fences, dig posts in the ground and install strong wrought iron gates. Unfortunately, this is not the case, which is why installing a gate is barely enough for the house to be secure. You have to be sure the right choice is made, the whole system is installed right, sudden problems are solved quickly and the system is often upgraded.
Do you want to talk about choices? When it comes to gates, you have plenty. Let's start with materials. From plain to ornamental iron gates and from wood to stone made posts, you can choose the most resistant materials for the gate, its parts and the posts. When materials are resilient to the elements and moisture, they won't rot or break down (at least not easily) which means that they can keep the gate balanced, strong and stable for a much longer time. So, good choices from the very start will also save you money in the long term.
Keep your house secure by making sure every new installation is done properly. The smallest problem with the way the gate or parts are installed can cause significant security issues. The gate might remain open due to the swing gate hinges, which are not welded on right, or due to the sagging posts, which were not reinforced with cement. Don't forget that good installations don't rule out future problems. Gate repairs will always be needed since the system is used daily is exposed to wind, sun, bugs and rain, and such mechanisms can just break down from normal usage.
Having a good opener with a powerful motor, a reliable clicker or keypad and making sure everything is maintained often is the best thing you can do for both your safety and security. You can also increase the security of your house further by installing a gate intercom system. There is a reason why there are so many choices on the market. These systems are not only made for big apartments and office buildings, but for private family homes as well.
