A gate to match
Mainly, your considerations in selecting garden gates shall be about how they look with your fencing. Where you place them is also vital.
The majority of people go for wooden fences. As a result, it is often ideal to choose wood gates. What this does is maintain a consistent appearance to your house. It also enhances the aesthetics for those thinking about selling. The pressing security issues are also important.
It is likely that your fencing around the side and back of the home is going to be around 1.8mm. Therefore, you should choose a gate to match this. This shall keep your perimeter secure from prospective thieves and curious eyes.
Your gate might be at the front of your premises. If so, you must keep the height down. This way, you won’t block the view of your home and will make it harder for those thieves that like to hide. There could also be planning limitations for gate height. This is especially likely if you are in a conservation area or if the gate at the front is adjacent to a highway.
You will also want to augment the security of your installation. One way to do this is to manage access to the garden effectively. For this to happen, you should have secure bolt locking. It is preferable to go for a lock at the bottom and top of your gate. This makes it harder for people to buckle and break the gate. For extra peace of mind, you can use padlocking for the bolts too.
