Driveway Sliding Gates
Driveway gates are usually custom made from large diameter steel.
They are very sturdy. Well designed and installed gates are very
difficult to open. These gates are usually opened and closed by
an electrical motor. Ensure you spend enough on this critical
component. Security sliding gate motors are rated according to
use and the weight of your gate. Bigger is always better. Sliding
gates are often galvanised in East London due to the rust prone environment.
Sizes are around 6m in width and often with a pedestrian gate.
Fixed security gates
Fixed security gates are manufactured from square or round steel and are
available in standard security gate sizes to suit standard door sizes. There
are many different Fixed security gate designs. Custom security gate manufacturers
will also manufacture custom security gates to almost any design according to the
customer specifications. Fixed security gates are security gates that are
permanently installed in place to secure the door or opening over which they
are installed. Some security gates are designed to screw into the door frames
or bolted or set into the wall. There is a problem with fixed security gates
mounted on timber door frames, as they are fairly easy to rip away from the
frame. Fixed security gates that are bolted into the wall around the door can
also be tampered with so the bolts should either be non removable or welded to
prevent tampering or the possible removal of the security gate.
