Automatic security gates have proven to be a popular addition to domestic and commercial properties across the North West region. Whether you want to maximise security and safety, or would just like a little more privacy, we at Impact Fencing & Protection Services Ltd have the answer. We supply gates in a choice of materials and styles, all designed to the needs of our clients in Manchester and the surrounding areas.

To ensure we meet or exceed your expectations, we work closely with you to determine exactly what you wish to achieve. The process involves a few different factors. Contact us about automatic gates and security fencing in Manchester, and we’ll listen to your needs attentively.

The following are all things to consider, and they will ensure your new gate will meet every requirement:

  • What is the purpose of the gates?

  • Who will use the gates?

  • How much space do you have?

  • What look do you want?

What is the purpose of the gates?

Impact Fencing & Protection Services Ltd can install gates for various reasons. Commercial clients often want to secure their properties against trespass, while our domestic customers may want a safe space for their children to play or their pets to roam. Gates can improve privacy and add to the appearance of properties when used alongside security fencing, but containment is one of the main benefits.

Based on what you wish to achieve with our automatic security gates, we will recommend different materials, styles and features. If your main aim is to control access to your property, we can include intercoms and remote push buttons.

Who will use the gates?

When thinking about who will use your new security gates, it’s important to consider both frequent and infrequent users. This helps us determine the best kind of system for your personal requirements. For example, your household may only have a small car but, if you get supermarket deliveries or make online purchases, your gate must accommodate larger vehicles.

If lorries or trucks need access to commercial properties in Manchester, the gates need to be wide enough. There will also need to be enough room left to manoeuvre once the gate is open. Depending on the amount of space available, sliding security gates are often the most suitable option.

Gates should provide access routes to homes or businesses by foot. For safety reasons, always provide separate pedestrian and vehicle entry points so one doesn’t impact the other.

How much space do you have?

Automatic gates need room to open and close freely without encountering any obstacles. As such, the amount of space available at your site will influence the style of gates we install. Our company will always provide you with a site survey and consultation, where we take the time to talk to you about what you want from one of our installations.

Some of the most common options include:

  • Swing Gates

  • Bi-Fold Gates

  • Sliding Gates

  • Telescopic Gates

What look do you want?

Security gates can add to the look and feel of your home or business, lending it a solid first impression. However, it’s important to get the design exactly right. You should think about the area where you live or work, and the surrounding neighbourhood, to determine which design will work best for your domestic or commercial property in Manchester.

Impact Fencing & Protection Services Ltd offers a broad range of materials, colours and designs, constructing the perfect gates for any application – home or business.
