If you have a driveway that slopes upwards this could restrict larger swing gates opening inwards, therefore sliding gates would be your best option. As an alternative you could install rising hinges to automatic swing gates which would then raise the gates as they opened.
Electric gates alone cannot guarantee a completely secure environment, but used in combination with further security measures will act as a deterrent to potential intruders. Some of these additional measures may include electronic keycard and keypad entry, security cameras or even a security guard.
Professionally installed electric gates will serve to provide additional security for any property together with the privacy sought by most home owners.
