Tip Sheet: Capitol Fence Shares How Entry Gates Provide Protection for Commercial and Residential Properties

Capitol Fence, an Austin, Texas electric gate installer, shares the top tips on protecting a residence or commercial business.


Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/27/2016 -- Capitol Fence, an automatic gate company in Austin, Texas, shares the top tips to safeguard a home or business with driveway electric gates. An entry gate restricts access to the location. Gates are made from pre-galvanized steel and have a powder coat applied. They are custom built and available in a variety of designs to suit the property and personal style choice.

Driveway security gates provide multiple benefits for homeowners and commercial businesses. Here are a list of tips to secure a business or home with entry gates.

1. Increase Protection from Unwanted Intruders

Even the presence of Austin electric gates presents a prominence that deters unwanted people from the premises. Since thefts are born out of opportunity, criminals will target houses that do not have a security gate more often than those that have one. Most often, a burglar is not able to penetrate through the electric gate. An electric gate also keeps intruders from turning around in driveways and trespassing on land. Automatic gates ensure safety and security for homeowners and staff at commercial businesses.

Commercial property business owners have an additional protective measure when installing automatic gates. Since these prevent intruders from entering the property, expensive equipment, machinery, tools, and materials are protected.

"Have an entry gate installed at each access into the residence or business to ensure the best protection," said Mike Morrow, owner of Capitol Fence in Austin.

2. Value of the Home or Office Increases from its Curb Appeal

For residential homes, the value of the home rises when the security and curb appeal is heightened due to an electric gate. If the residence is in Austin, entry gate installers can construct a gate to match and compliment the residence, commercial business, and construction. When the value of the home is increased, the re-sale value of the home is also increased.

3. Convenient Ability to Limit Access to Residence and Commercial Building

Austin entry gates provide access to a residence or business location. The automatic gate is controlled through a remote opener, keypad, or other type of electronic device. The convenience of the electric gate allows people to enter in the most inconvenient times, like when it is raining. With control systems that make it convenient to open and close entry gates, home or business owners can enter and exit the property easily.

4. Breaks on Insurance

Depending on the home owner's and/or business owner's insurance company, the insurance company may allow a lower cost on premiums. The reason is because the insurance company sees the property as being more secure. If the property is more secure, this lowers the possibility of theft.

5. Safety for Pets and Children

Entry gates for driveways keep kids and pets from exiting the property. The gates operate as a barrier between the street and the residence. This keeps kids and pets from wandering off, as well as keeping anyone else from entering the premises.

Since protection of family and pets is paramount to many residence owners, the safety and security of an electric gate protects family and pets.
