At Harrier Gates Ltd, our gate repairs and installation experts understand the importance of feeling safe and secure in your home. The same applies to commercial and industrial property owners, who want to feel their premises remains protected from intruders and thieves at all times. There are numerous methods to improve the security of a property, such as installing CCTV cameras and burglar alarms. However, electric gates, be they metal or wooden gates, provide an elegant and affordable solution.
Driveway gates with a gate automation system not only add kerb appeal to your home in Virginia Water, but also act as an excellent deterrent to potential intruders. Choosing solid wooden gates over metal ones also provides an excellent privacy screen.
They are also incredibly strong and durable, which makes them less prone to damage, saving you money on potentially costly gate repairs or replacements in the future.
While unautomated manual gates are still a viable option, there really is no comparison with electric gates when it comes to security and ease of use. With a huge range of gate automation systems to choose from, all controlled by the touch of a button on your remote control, you can open and close your driveway gates at will. What’s more, you can relax in the knowledge that nobody can set foot on your property without your say-so.
If you live in the Virginia Water area, we recommend regular gate repairs and maintenance checks to ensure your electric gates are as safe and secure as possible around the clock.
Furthermore, it’s not just about keeping out those who are planning to commit a crime. It’s also about knowing that your children can play outside without the risk of them running into a busy road to collect an errant football.
With years of experience in the commercial and industrial sectors, Harrier Gates meets every need for security gates, barriers and bollards. If you operate a business or a public facility, you have highly specific security needs. Our installers take the time to understand them before recommending the most effective route forward.
For example, security barriers make the perfect choice if your main concern is fast, efficient, yet controlled, access to your premises. This is a common solution for car parks, hotels, sports centres and shopping centres.
If you want to create a more secure perimeter, where unauthorised vehicles simply cannot gain access to your site, we advise installing gates and/or bollards. While bollards prevent access without impeding pedestrian traffic, a robust gate offers a more secure ring.
When talking about protecting your property in the Virginia Water area, the first step is crime prevention. Whilst the presence of CCTV cameras can put off potential intruders, they often don’t even notice the cameras until they’ve already set foot on your premises. Driveway gates, solid wooden gates and electric gates, however, act as the first line of defence against vandals and thieves.
It might be easy for a burglar to open a manual gate and leave it open in case of a hasty retreat, but gate automation systems are an entirely different challenge altogether. Even if they manage to climb over to get in, they’ll struggle to get back out again, leaving them trapped on your driveway as you call the police.
They also know that in order to avoid jumping the metal or wooden gates, they would have to bypass complicated electrical systems. This takes too much time and makes it more likely that someone will catch them in the process.
An opportunist who is intent on committing a burglary in the Virginia Water area will overlook your property and target somewhere without driveway gates.
If, however, someone has tinkered with your gate automation system or damaged the opening mechanism, you can call us for comprehensive gate repairs. At Harrier Gates, our expert personnel share years of experience in the industry, so your electric gates are in the very safest hands with us.
