Benefits of Driveway Gates
Installing a driveway gate can be a substantial investment for a property owner. If you’re unsure whether it’s worth the cost, you need to consider a range of benefits and talk to a reputable installer or gate manufacturer if installing your own, below is a list of benefits.
- Increased security
It’s no secret that an automatic gate at the front of a property is a great way to improve security. Whether it’s for a family home, specialist disability home, aged care facility, or business premises, these gates are often called ‘driveway security gates.’
An automatic driveway gate is not just a visual deterrent, it will also restrict vehicle and pedestrian access to your property. This means that your home will be more secure and your family will feel safer. Driveway gates are also the perfect way to secure large expensive items, such as trailers and boats, as well as deterring motor vehicle break-ins.
- Additional safety for your family & pets
One of the priceless benefits of automatic driveway gates is safety. Firstly, if you’re coming home late at night, you can open the gate from the safety of your car. Secondly, if you have small children, an automatic gate will prevent them from wandering onto the road or chasing a ball into oncoming traffic. It will also keep unwanted people and animals off of your property, ensuring the safety of your kids.
Lastly, if you have a pet, such as a dog, an automatic driveway gate (along with a fence) will help keep your pet confined to your property.
- Additional privacy
If privacy is a concern of yours, an automatic driveway gate is a great investment. It will prevent cars from entering your driveway and people from walking into your yard. This can help lower the risk of theft and reduce the visibility of your home from the street. This additional privacy can add value to your property and offer additional landscaping options. For example, you could use the front yard as an additional entertaining area without privacy concerns.
- Increased kerb appeal
Just as with anything else, you only have one chance to make a positive first impression of your home. If you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘kerb appeal’, it means how good your property looks to people standing on the street. An automatic driveway gate can dramatically improve your property’s overall look, increasing your kerb appeal.
