Once you’ve decided to add a security gate to your Burbank property, that easy decision gives way to a host of other decisions and questions. You’ll need to decide what sort of gate you want, the color, what material to be made out of, and more. Here are some of the top frequently asked questions regarding security gates.
1- What Type Of Security Gate Do I Need?
The answer to this question really depends upon the application that you are dealing with for your Glendale property, as well as your personal preference. You could have the entire gate swing open like a regular door, you could have the gate split in the middle and both doors open like a french door, or you could have the whole gate slide to one side. Topography and other considerations may make some of these options more costly.
2- What Is The Best Material For A Security Gate?
In general, the best material to use for a security gate is one that both suits the Beverly Hills property and fits the desires of the customer. There are a wide variety of options for security gates, including using wood, wrought iron, steel, aluminum, and more. Of course, combining materials to create an aesthetically pleasing gate that also can stand up to abuse is possible as well. Speak with your security gate expert to find the best option for your property.
3- Can I Install The Security Gate Myself?
While it is possible to install the security gate yourself at the Santa Monica home, it is not something that most people care to take on themselves. While the security gate itself isn’t difficult when you combine that with the electronics used to open and close the gate, plus running electricity, positioning exit eyes, and more, it becomes quite a project. Security gate companies typically end up installing these security gates, and they do it well because they have done hundreds of these, where the property owner has usually never installed one before. Best to let the professionals handle things.
4- How Long Will My Security Gate Last?
There are always exceptions to the rule, but generally, security gates last for many decades if properly maintained in North Hollywood. The entire system should be inspected at least once per year, and several quick reviews throughout the year will help to ensure that your security gate operates for many years without issue.
