If you’re unsure whether to install electric gates it is possible to upgrade at a later date when you’ve made an informed decision, based on your usage and how convenient you find opening and closing them when you return home or a guest arrives.

Automated Driveway Gates Stoke Poges

For customers thinking about whether they should automate their driveway gates we ask them to consider how much more convenient electric gates could make their lives; from convenient access via the use of a remote control, keypad or intercom to the ability to program your gates to shut at a set time, removing the need for you to remember to close them each day. Then of course there’s the benefit of increased security. Automated gates make forcing entry far more difficult than gaining entry through a manual gate protecting your home and family from unwanted intruders and also, preventing your children and pets from escaping the grounds of your property.

At GateKraft, we employ experienced technicians that will assess your existing gates to establish whether they are suitable for an upgrade to an automated gate. Following an initial assessment, several adaptations might be required to your existing gates to enable the upgrade to an automated system, although if your gates are sturdy and made from quality materials there’s often few reasons not to automate.
