Thinking of Installing Retractable Gates?
Decades ago, retractable gates were primarily used in commercial establishments, warehouses and elevators. They have now been modified to suit any space including residential properties and apartment buildings. While they were once available in a standard design and used only in commercial spaces, they have now been adapted for widespread use in residences too.
Home owners looking to add an additional set of gates for security measures prefer retractable gates as they do not take up much space. They come in a range of designs and colours, and can be installed in any space.
Secures your premises effectively
The biggest advantage of installing retractable gates, however, is the protection they offer. Statistics has revealed that a home is burgled once every 40 seconds in Britain. According to the British Chamber of Commerce, retail crime and others that affected businesses cost around £19 billion annually.
These figures indicate the necessity to secure your premises with strong and lasting solutions. Retractable gates are resilient and perform well under extreme temperatures too.
Their uses are extensive. They are great outside your ground floor French windows and are equally suitable for store front windows as well. They can be customised to fit into any space. You can have smaller retractable gates installed indoors to protect toddlers and pets from wandering into the kitchen or around the stairwell.
While an additional set of doors is sure to hinder air circulation and the flow of light into your property, retractable gates spare you these hassles. They look elegant and can blend in with your decor too. They can be conveniently installed. They are available in continental designs and other innovative designs to better suit your interiors. If you want to keep them out of your way for a while, they can be swept back neatly and kept hidden behind your curtains.
You can increase their security features by installing a multipoint lock that can be accessed with a single key. This is great for retail spaces that prefer to maintain a display section even when they are closed. The presence of these grilled gates makes it easier to install alarms around the exteriors of your buildings too. They can be easily camouflaged in the corners to surprise burglars as well.
These diverse uses and advantages make installing retractable gates a popular and practical choice.
