Installing an electric opener on your home’s driveway gate will
increase its aesthetics and curb appeal. With many design options
available, you’re sure to find a gate that will complement the
landscaping an architecture of your property. Automatic gates usually
increase the property value of a home and make it easier to sell. In
addition, you may even get a discount on your homeowner’s insurance with
an automatic security gate, because the gate is a deterrent to thieves.
For commercial and industrial properties, automatic security gates
will protect your company’s valuable inventory and keep your staff safe,
without the expense of adding 24/7 security staff. Commercial automatic
gates can include razor wire, barbed wire, wire coils, or anti-climb
spikes to match the rest of your company’s perimeter fencing.
The most obvious benefit of installing an automatic gate is added
security, because it will deter thieves and vandals at both residential
and commercial properties. In addition to preventing unauthorized
access, a security gate at your home will keep pets and children safe
inside your yard and away from predators or traffic.
You control who can access your property, so the only people who
enter your home or business are the people you allow. Features like an
intercom and security camera allow you to see who’s at your gate from
the safety of your home or business. Employees, guests and family
members can be given access to your home or business through a keypad or

someone forgets to close it, you can secure your property with the press
of a button. By the same token, you can allow visitors to enter your
home or business without walking out to the gate or leaving it open all
the time. When you’re driving, you don’t have to get out of your car to
open or close the gate, which is especially important in bad weather or
when it’s dark outside.
Automatic security gates are heavy, weighing as much as 20,000
pounds, and they can move as fast as 3 feet per second. That’s why there
are safety features included that reduce the risk of property damage or
injury to your employees, family members, or pets. The Underwriters
Laboratories (UL) Standard 325 requires automatic gates to have safety
devices such as photoelectric sensors, audible warning devices, warning
signage, contact/pressure sensors, screening, and safety cages.
Depending on the application, your automatic residential or commercial
gate would have some or all of these.
Automatic security gates have many design options, so you can get the
protection you need with the look you want. You can have a custom

and architecture. Custom lighting and masonry can be added to your
business or home entry gate, enhancing its curb appeal and providing a

residential driveways, gated communities, airports, detention
facilities, mini storage complexes, delivery docks, transportation
terminals, and commercial or industrial manufacturing plants. They can
be active 24/7, or just used for access control after business hours.
Commercial gate openers have powerful controls to hold up to the demands
of frequent use for pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
Depending on the application and the amount of space available, your
home or business could have an automatic vertical pivot gate, vertical
lift gate, swing gate, pedestrian swing gate, overhead slide gate, box
