Barriers That Protect And Fortify

May 8 2012

Any construction, no matter how big or small it might be, has doors or gates to protect the inner premises. It helps in maintaining the privacy of the house. Doors protect a house from trespassers and burglars. So it is important that doors are built strong. Gates are common in individual houses as there may be a garden or open space between the house and the main gate. Apartments usually have doors as there is no space for gates.

One can choose from a variety of gates. Gates can be made of wood, iron, wrought iron, glass and many other materials. Gates can be automated or manual. They can be swing gates, sliding gates, rotating gates, tall gates, short gates, panel gates, single gates, pair gates, etc.

The strength of a gate depends on how it is designed. Gates chosen by the owner of houses usually check the material it is built with so as to suit them. Optimum security is a factor kept in mind while choosing gates for the house. The gates can be plain or ornate. It can have a very rustic or plain look while other may be decorated with carvings or iron vignettes. All this depends on the buyers’ choice.

Gates should ideally be very sturdy so that it can protect the people living in the premises they guard providing full safety without compromising on looks. Gates should be strong enough to endure destruction caused by forces of nature or burglars. Gates made of any sort of metal should ideally be coated with rust proof painted so that they don’t rust over the years and under rain. Gates should be painted with a coat of rust proof paint every year to take proper precautions.

People these days opt for automated gates but the demand for manual gates has not lessened. People are getting their gates automated for better security. They are installing burglar alarms on their gates to increase levels of security. Gates are a symbol of safety. Some gates also have CCTVs attached to it so that the owner of the house can monitor the entries and exits made in a day. Some gates are guarded by passwords which only the owners and close family and friends know. This filters the entry of people in the house. Few gates are also guarded with hand impressions and retina scanners. This is a fool proof way of guarding a house as no two people can have the same hand impression or the same eyes.
