These days, more and more Australians are embracing apartment living and an urban lifestyle. The increase in urbanization and rising property prices have created a demand for such high density living in Australia. Safety is the priority for apartment residents, so security and access control are a key consideration for unit and apartment developers and builders. A security gates provide a low-cost way to achieve peace of mind for apartment residents.
In apartment complexes, there are normally a high volume of traffic accessing the property during the day and night. By installing a security access control system and security gates, you allow the free flow of traffic, while at the same time protecting residents and their precious assets.
At Brisbane Automatic Gates we can design, build and install any type of gate for both residential and commercial properties. Our gates are all custom made, which means we can create the perfect access control solution for your site. Depending on the size and layout of the complex, we may recommend a sliding or swing gate to you. A boom gate may also be recommended as a security solution.
A sliding gate is a good option for apartments, unit or townhouse complexes, as they can easily be automated. There needs to be ample room for the gate to retract when it is opened. Sliding gates are very safe and do not require a deep driveway, as is the case with swing gates. At Brisbane Automatic Gates, we custom build all our gates to meet your specifications.
Swinging gates are another great option for apartments and unit complexes. This style normally consists of two half-sized gates (i.e. double swing gates) that open and close via a swinging mechanism.
The benefit of swing gates is that you don’t need as much room at the front of your block, compared to sliding gates. You will however need a wider driveway to ensure the gates can freely swing to allow the easy passage for vehicle. You will also need to ensure swing gates do not swing open onto a foot path or other high traffic area which could result in an injury and/or damage to the gate.
