If you want to prevent unauthorized access to your property, and you already have fencing, or are planning to install fencing, your next consideration should be a security gate. But choosing the right gate can be tricky. Here are a few things you’ll want to consider:
The gate width. This may seem silly, and inconsequential, but the width of the gate can have a bearing on the price, and other factors. A wider gate will be more expensive in itself, as well as heavier, meaning your choice of motor may be affected. Then again, consider things like what kind of vehicles will be entering your property. I’ve heard stories of gates blocking the entry of fire trucks, because they were too narrow – not a good idea!
