Once we assess these factors we can supply you with budgeting information. Electric Gate Motor Kit with safety components typically cost around £600 - £800 for Sliding Gates and £400 - £1000 for Swing Gates.
- Are Electrified Gates More Secure?
Criminals are opportunist and determined, so an open entrance without a Secure Gate won't slow them down and with the right tools they can be inside within 15-20 minutes. So, gates are the first line of defence for protecting against unwanted visitors, therefore Electric Gates will deter burglars and thieves from trying to enter as they will deem it too difficult, magnetic locks or self-locking motors prevent your gates from being pushed open. And as there is a higher chance of getting caught or getting trapped inside it is often considered more hassle than it's worth.
