Top 5 Types of Security Gates for Your Property

Security gates provide your property with various different benefits, with the main one being increased safety as well as privacy. They are a great investment as they add value overall to your property and ensure that the whole premises are secure and that no trespassers are able to gain access. 

When it comes to security gates, there are actually a variety of different types that you can choose from, therefore allowing you to find the perfect match for your property. As we believe that security gates are such an important thing to have, whether it is for your home or business property, we thought we would tell you about some of the best types we have to offer here at JMS Auto Gates…


Swing gates

As the name suggests, swing gates are designed to swing open and closed when operated. It means that when opened and closed, these gates swing outwards, as opposed to sliding from side to side. They are actually one of the cheapest options of security gates, and they come as either manual or automatic. They are incredibly easy to use and very low maintenance. Furthermore, although they are very effective as a security barrier, they still look welcoming and fit perfectly with modern designs.


Automatic gates

Automatic gates are great for security as they can be set to open and close whenever you need. They are completely automatic and deter any unwanted guests or trespassers from entering your property. As they are automatic, this is great for convenience as well as high security. Furthermore, automatic gates look very modern and impressive, and will add value to your property therefore making it a cost effective investment. 


Electric gates

Electric gates are very similar to automatic gates. They keep disruption of your driveway or land to a minimum due to the modern way they are fitted and they don’t have to be operated manually which makes them very convenient. Due to the increased security of your property that electric gates provide, as a result this will lower your insurance. The wireless technology in electric gates is great for convenience as for example if you arrive back at your property in your car, you won’t have to get out to open the gates as they will open for you themselves.


Sliding gates

Sliding gates are essentially the opposite to swing gates. While swing gates swing open internally and externally, sliding gates slide from left to right when operated. This is perfect if you are a little short of space as they don’t take up too much room, yet still do the job. Furthermore, sliding gates work well if your driveway or the land around your property is built on a slope, as the gates can’t swing open. These gates also come as manual or automatic, and they keep your home very secure whilst looking elegant.


Cantilever gates

Cantilever gates are quite unique in the way they are designed and built. Instead of there having to be tracks for the gates to open and close, the cantilever system means that no gates are required. Cantilever sliding gates are often a preferred option due to the minimal disruption and modern approach. They are very easy to automate and are raised off of the ground.
