Garages are where we park our cars and like gates, can be either manual or electrical. Having an automated garage gate makes it easier to open the gate. This saves you having to lift very heavy garage gates. You can open or close the garage gate using your remote control.
Uses Of Automated Garage Gates
Automated garage gates save you from the elements as the garage gate opens and closes on its own. This means that you don’t get wet from the rain or snow during those seasons. There is also better security when using an automated garage gate as you don’t have to come out of the car to open the gate, especially when coming home late.
Garage Gate Structure
Garage gates are mostly made of iron and an automated garage has an electromechanical part that moves the gate up and down. Garage gates can be painted for the fashion conscious or left plain. Garages are built as part of the house or a room at a corner of the house can be converted to the garage.
Garage gates are parts of the house that can be forgotten to shut when leaving the house. Study has shown that most burglars get into a house through the garage. Having an automated garage gate solves that security lapse and having a remote control for the garage gate secures you even more. The automated garage gate can have a sensor built that senses when the garage gate is open and closes automatically.
Types Of Automated Garage Gates
Garage gates are found mostly in residential homes and automated garage gates fall mostly under two types; the one that rolls up or down and the one that swings up or down. The automated garage gate that rolls up conserves more space that the one that swings up or down. The roll up garage gate rolls or retracts into itself and uses only the space of the garage door while the swinging garage door swings either up or down. There has to be some space from the garage door for the gate to swing out and the vehicle to drive in or out.
A remote controller controls both the roll up gate and the swing type gate.
Automated garage gates give greater security than a normal garage gate.Having the garage gate controlled by a remote control increases the security as the time spent to open the garage gate manually is reduced. The remote control means that you can control your gate without physically touching the gates. Also, having a garage ensures that the vehicle is better secured and isn’t at the risk of the weather. This helps in increasing the life span of the vehicle.
Automated garage gates help to create a safety zone for you and your vehicle. Having an automated garage means you control when and if anyone gets to your vehicle. The remote control means you have total control of your garage gate even when not in the building.
