Home security is something many people are now considering given the increase in working from home, and there are many aspects to consider. A simple improvement to this is by adding a gate to your driveway; you will give yourself control of who enters your property, give your family and pets a safe environment to be in, and gain some privacy too.
First Fence has a range of aluminium driveway gates and this particular design is a partial privacy model with a gentle, bell-curved top line and double leaves. The top section is partly infilled giving a good range of visibility through it, but the solid infill of the bottom section creates a sturdy barrier that gives a sense of privacy and seclusion.
Manufactured from aluminium it has a very modern and eye-catching design. Aluminium is an excellent choice of material for a gate, particularly in the UK with its challenging, often wet and cold weather, as it has a natural resistance to corrosion. It can also withstand salt corrosion meaning if you live on the coast, a gate made from aluminium is a superb choice.
The Aluminium Double Swing Driveway Gate has a polyester powder coating of black or grey and this gives it a wonderful, finished look. It also gives some protection from damage and weathering. If you wanted a different colour, there is a selection of non-standard colours available, please get in touch for details.
This gate is available in the following heights: 1.6m, 1.8m, 2.0m and 2.2m, and includes 4 wall-mounted hinges and 2 floor-mounted hinges. When taking your measurements you will need to allow an extra 50mm for these. Gate posts are available to match the gate, however they are only needed if there is nothing to fix it to. The lock and handle for the gate can be purchased as an add on for an additional price and it will be fitted to the gate before delivery.
This gate needs very little maintenance, to restore its good looks you just need to wash it down with some soapy water and rinse away any residue. An eco-friendly option too, as aluminium is readily recyclable.
The gate comes with a 5-year manufacturer's guarantee from Ready Made Gates.
Please Note: The gates only open 1 way, 90 degree inwards from outside, they can be made to open outwards but this needs to be specified at the time of ordering, please contact us on 01283 512 111 for more information.
