Why install electric gates? This is probably one of the most common questions asked - so let’s start with the basics. Without a gate your property is easily accessed by unwanted callers - whether its sales calls, nosy neighbours or burglars looking for an easy opportunity. So a good gate will help deter unwanted visitors. But many of us have gates that we don't use - let’s face it jumping in and out of the car to open and close the gate soon becomes a chore. So we leave the gate open - it’s just easier. This is where the electric gate comes in.
