To give you an idea of the different options open to you, here’s a quick explainer of the different types of electric gates in Stirling we can supply and install at your home or business premises.
Sliding Gates in Stirling are the perfect choice for properties with limited space at the entrance. The electric sliding gates we supply offer a practical and stylish solution for people who want the practicality of electric gates but haven’t got enough room to fit swing gates. Sliding gates require much less room when opening and closing, which in turn generates more usable parking space on the property. Sliding gates are also a viable alternative if your driveway slopes upwards where it is impossible for swing gates to open inwards.
Due to the way they operate by running along tracks, they provide enhanced security against anyone trying to ram your gates. Sliding gates also offer a higher level of protection against high winds. As with all our other automated gates in Stirling, sliding gates are available in a selection of styles and finishes.
Cantilever gates possess the same-space saving qualities as sliding gates. However, while sliding gates run along a track when opening and closing, Cantilever gates in Stirling are suspended above your driveway via a counterbalance. This makes them the perfect choice if the entrance to your driveway is situated on a surface that isn’t level. When in operation, they don’t come into contact with the ground, which makes them much quieter and smoother than some other models of automated gate. This also makes Cantilever gates in Stirling the ideal choice for gravel and cobbled driveways.
One thing to take into account with Cantilever gates, is that in order to provide the weighted counterbalance that helps suspend the gate, they are generally wider than sliding gates. Cantilever gates in Stirling come in all different types of materials and finishes which will give your property the impressive entrance it deserves.
Cantilever gates can be controlled by keypad, intercom or by using a remote, providing you with ease of access while keeping you safe from unwanted visitors. One of the benefits of Cantilever gates is that they have a longer lifespan than sliding gates and they are easier to install as there are no major groundworks required. The fact that they are unaffected by adverse weather conditions underfoot such as snow make them more durable than other types of electric gates.
Electric Bifold Gates
Electric bi-fold gates operate by folding in on themselves and are available in various configurations that can be matched to the entrance of any home. Bi-fold gates are not only aesthetically pleasing but are the perfect solution for driveways where there is limited space. They are also the perfect solution if your property is located on a steep hill or incline.
Because they don’t require the installation of a ground track to operate, bi-fold electric gates are generally considered to be quieter than traditional sliding gates. Because of the way they fold in on themselves they tend to make entering and exiting your property not only quicker but more convenient.
As with all our other electric gates in Stirling, there are a number of options for automation controls which include everything from a basic remote right up to CCTV intercom. The different styles and materials available mean electric bi-fold gates can be matched with your existing external décor. There is no doubt that electric bi fold doors will enhance the appearance of any property.
