Helping you Secure your Home with Brilliant Gating Systems

Image Courtesy :

Last spring when I was renovating my home, I had to put in a lot of hard work, just to get the workers to do their job properly. I am a working woman and half my time is spent away from home. So it became very difficult for me driving back and forth from my office and home. I had to make sure that the renovation designs were shaping up properly and that everything was perfect.

I had to make sure that the kitchen drawers were being built properly, the flooring was being done well and the walls were being coated with the shade of paint I had chosen. There was more of reconstruction than construction being done in my house and I had to make sure that the designs were perfected.

Another aspect of my home that I had to take care of was the gating system of my house. The winter before burglars had broken in and stolen valuables from the house and its premises. So along with more reliable locking systems, I had to make changes in my gating system. I was at a loss and could not decide on perfect gates. And even if I chose good designs, there was no one who would install them for me.

That was when my friend suggested that I took help from Gemini Gates. And he was right; Gemini Gates helped me out a lot in selecting, delivering and installing perfect gates for my home. I called them up and asked for advice. They are good suppliers of a variety of gates and also help in installing them. They first asked me what kind of gates I wanted for my house as they have a wide range to choose from.

I chose the automated gates as they provided extra security. I did not want another burglary to take place in my house. The best part about automated gates is that they are very difficult to break into. They told me that I could choose any strong gate and they would install the automation system in it. They asked me if I wanted underground or over ground automation. And they also gave me warranty options. So after I selected my gates they send over electricians and experienced workers to install the gates and automate them. Thanks to them, till date, I have faced no difficulties with my gates. I did not have to worry about supervising the installation as they did it perfectly and explained the automation system to me.

Now Stay Worry-Free after Installing Automated Gates

Without gates our houses will be unsafe and vulnerable. When we think that doors are enough to protect our homes from external danger, we are highly mistaken. Unless the house premises are protected by strong gates any trespasser can enter and cause harm to your house premises and the inmates. With escalating crime rates, it has become important to install sturdy gates to protect your houses properly from harm.

However, with the advancement of technology, now gates have become much safer. Now people all over the UK are installing automated gates so that they can be tension free about the security of their home. Working couples now need not worry about the safety of their homes. They can lock everything and leave for work. No burglar will be able to get past automated gates as they cannot be forced open and as burglar alarms are also activated, the house will stay well fortified.

Automated gates can only be opened by a remote. Therefore unless you have the remote you cannot get past these gates. Now you do not have to get out of your car to open and shut the gates in windy or rainy or even wintery conditions. You can enjoy the comfort of your vehicle and open the gates and also see them close in the rear view mirror. This is one of the best advantages of automated gates.

A huge concern for parents is the safety of their children. As we know, children love to go on little expeditions on their own. They are very curious and adventurous. But this curiosity can lead to big trouble. Keeping an eye on them constantly while doing house work is close to impossible because even if you are away for a minute there are chances that they will sneak out.

But if you have automated gates installed, you do not have to worry about children running out on the streets because you will have control over the lock of the gates. Therefore now all you have to do is make sure you lock the gates. Children will be safe within the premises of the house and no one, especially kidnappers, will be able to even touch them.

And even if you have pets and are horrified at thought that they might run out on the streets and get hit by a vehicle, now you can calm down. With automated gates they will be safe. Therefore, this is an example of the kind of safety, automated gates provide.

Automatic gates for ultimate safety

Why are people running after automatic gates? Sometime ago I was not interested in installing a automated barriers; even when I found my friends and neighbours opting for automated gating facilities I remained tight-lipped because I was least interested in it until the worst day in my life had arrived. Earlier I used to think that the wooden gates at the entrance are good enough to protect me and my family from potential risks. Little did I realise that they had become old and hardly had the strength to withstand forcible access. 

Last Sunday while I and my husband John were busy doing household chores together; yes!! That is a part of our weekend routine since we hardly get time to clean our home during weekdays. Anyways!! Now let me share this horrific experience with you. While we were busy with our household chores, our son Sean was silently responding to someone we had failed to notice at first. 

Suddenly we heard, Buddy, our pet Labrador retriever bark breathlessly. He was unstoppably barking at someone. After we came running, John noticed a stranger trying to catch hold of Sean. Poor baby!! We were about to lose him.  The cunning trespasser had left at the sight of us. My baby was saved. After calming down, I had noticed that someone had tried to break open our age-old pair of gates which had already undergone the test of time. Yes, finally I had understood why I should have installed an automated gate at our entrance. After the incident we had opted for a pair of electronic barriers. 

Now, both of us can sleep tight without the worries of our child being kidnapped, or our property being burgled, or our pet running out without notice. We feel safe and secure. I can now tell how I am benefitting from these electronic access control systems; here is how:

  • The pair of gates acts as a significant deterrent to burglars, kidnappers, thieves and opportunists

  • We can now keep away from unwanted visitors and salesmen who tend to knock on our doors at odd hours.
  •   Also the chances of Buddy fighting with stray dogs or cats have lowered. He can stay calm and cool at home. 
  •  Our home remains safe even if we are away 
  • We are majorly benefitting from controlled access systems. John and I can operate the gates at our own convenience and of course without stepping out of our home.
  • Gone are those days when used to get late to parties while trying to manually close the gates outside. Now the time has come when we can push a button and operate these barriers.
So, I will never say that I don’t need an automatically operated barrier because I am already benefitting from it.

Build and Install the Gates of your Home Wisely

Have you ever seen a house without doors and windows? Of course not and the reason is simple. A house needs doors, gates and windows for security purposes. Gates provide that extra bit of security that a house requires so that the inmates are safe. Gates fortify a house and keeps intruders at bay.

Gates also stop trespassers, thieves and robbers from entering the premises and causing harm to the inmates or the property. These gates can be made from various sorts of materials like:

  • Steel
  • Iron
  • Wrought Iron
  • Wood
The two most common material used to build gates are iron and wood. While most people opt for iron gates, there are many who also like to install wooden gates. Both types of gates can be used to protect the premises of a house. Many say that iron gates are better than wooden gates and many think otherwise.

Well, we can weigh out the pros and cons of both the materials. As iron is tougher than wood most people opt for iron gates. Breaking through iron gates is very difficult as nothing but high heat can damage iron. Burglars and trespassers will find it very hard to break into houses with iron gates. These gates are thick and cannot be discreetly sawed into. Even if intruders try and cut through iron, they won’t be able to do it without making noise. However, no matter how tough iron gates are, they are a bit on the expensive side as compared to wooden gates.

Wooden gates are very attractive and have an old world charm to them. Many people install wooden gates so that the exterior of their house looks attractive. Wood has a habit of wilting under its own weight and loosening up at the joints. However, wooden gates are cost effective and cost less than iron gates. If a really hard and thick plank of wood is used to make the gates, then breaking through it cautiously without making noise will be impossible. 

Also, one should install gates keeping in mind the weather conditions of the city. If the city is damp most of the time and receives a good amount of rainfall every year, they should not even think of installing wooden gates because wet wood tends to weaken and becomes vulnerable. Before installing gates in your home, it’s very important to check all the pros and cons of the material the gate is made of.
