Why Do You Need Automatic Security Gates?

The security of your property matters as much to us as it does to you, and our range of automatic gates is a vital part of your security system. Automatic gates have many advantages, including: 

1. Privacy. Automatic gates are an excellent way to ensure privacy for your family or business, and you can control entry and exit to your property via remote control. 

2. Safety. Creating safe boundaries between your property and the outside world can help to prevent children, vulnerable people and pets from leaving the premises without observation. An automatic swing gate or sliding gate also serves to prevent trespassers and thieves from entering your property. 

3. Convenience. You can avoid getting wet in adverse weather conditions when you use a remote control or keypad to open your automatic swing or sliding gates. This can save you valuable time and effort, and remote control systems also make it very easy to open your gates for visitors as they arrive and depart. 

4. Value for money. Having automatic gates on your property can increase the value of your home and may also reduce your home or business insurance policy. 

5. Appearance. Automatic gates look great and create an impressive entrance to your home. 

We have a variety of automatic gates in our range, including wooden, iron and steel options in swing or sliding styles, with underground or overground automation. Simply talk to us at Sentinel and we will be happy to advise you on the best options for residential or commercial use.

Automatic Barriers and Bollards

 Our catalogue at Sentinel Security includes automatic traffic barriers, a fast and reliable solution for car parks and business premises. We have several options, including solutions for large and small premises, and our traffic barriers are designed to be highly adaptable, used intensively and continuously, and suitable for cold weather climates. 

We also supply automatic bollards, which are suitable for use in high traffic areas or on commercial premises. Automatic bollards can be raised or lowered by a remote touchpad or by a remote control.

It is important to ensure that your automatic gates, barriers and bollards are regularly tested and routinely serviced to guarantee that your security system is working efficiently.
