Automatic Sliding Gates for Melbourne
Stay in your car and keep dry in winter and cool in summer when you install an automatic sliding gate. Automatic sliding gates (also known as electric gates) are becoming more popular. This is because they are great at reducing the space needed for a vehicle to access a driveway.
We offer more than just one brand of automatic gates. This means you are guaranteed that the automatic sliding gate system you choose will suit your budget, home and lifestyle.
One of the most common reasons for installing automatic gates in Melbourne is for security reasons.
Automatic sliding gates are usually fabricated using a 50mm x 50mm frame with the bottom rail 100mm x 50mm to incorporate the wheels. Gate posts are needed on either side of the automatic gate that suit both the style of the automatic sliding gate, as well as their size and weight.
Benefits of Automatic Sliding Gates
Automatic gates are much more secure than the traditional gates with a simple latch system. They are also great for homes that are on busy roads This is because they makes it quicker to get in and out of driveways. Automatic sliding gates will also enhance the overall look and value of a home.
Automatic sliding gates also make great driveway gates when you have uneven ground. This is especially true when it is impractical to use a driveway hinged gate. This is one of the reasons why automatic sliding gates have become extremely popular choice for gates in Melbourne.
Instead of the usual swing arc the automatic sliding gate simply slides across the access point of the driveway. These automatic sliding gates are not connected directly to a gate post, but are configured into a slide frame.
This type of automatic sliding gates are most often used for vehicle access. However, some people use them for pedestrian access gates too.
