Discover the advantages of installing electric gates with FirstEye in Leeds

Electric gates provide a superior level of security, allowing you to control who enters your property. When combined with an intercom system, electric gates offer an elegant security solution that enhances the appearance of your home.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, electric gates also provide a significant deterrent to potential intruders. At FirstEye, we install three main types of gates that are suitable for domestic properties: sliding gate openers, articulated gate arms, and swing gate arms. All our gates are operated by either remote fob or keypad entry, and we can design bespoke gates that complement the unique features of your property.

Here are some of the benefits of each type of electric gate:

Sliding gate openers:

Sliding gate openers provide exceptional wind resistance and are nearly impossible to force open, making them the most secure type of electric gate. These gates are designed to be fully opened for vehicle access or partially opened for pedestrian access. However, they require a full gate width alongside the gate opening, which may not be suitable for narrow driveways.

Articulated gate openers:

Articulated gate openers require large gate posts for installation and are an excellent option for wooden gates because the post, not the gate, provides the pressure needed to open the gate. We have the expertise to install new gates with articulated openers or convert an existing gate.

Swing gate openers:

Swing gate openers come in two main types: underground systems and gate back arms. Underground systems are discreet and highly effective because there is no visible mechanism. However, they must be fitted at the same time as the gate installation, which makes them better suited to new builds, renovations, or refit projects. Swing gate openers use hydraulic or corkscrew arms and can be fitted to existing gates or new gates. Corkscrew gates are best suited for light or medium-weight gates, while heavier gates require the power provided by hydraulic arms.
