How do I Future-Proof my Gate?

Read some of our advice and information below to help you Future-Proof your project.

Gate

For privacy or security a gate is a great way to close off the boundary of your property.

Gates come in a multitude of designs from heritage to modern and are usually made from aluminium or timber. Select a gate that not only suits your home but also has the right functionality for your requirements. Some gates slide, others open up inwards which would effectively mean no car could be parked just inside the gate.

Also consider if you need an intercom. All these things need to be factored in at the beginning.

Your gate professional should do an on-site inspection and help you decide which gate provides the best function for you.
