5 tips for designing an attractive and safe entrance gate

The entrance gate is an important element of any home or business space. It’s the first thing people see when they come to you, so it should not only be functional, but also safe. Designing an attractive and secure entrance gate can be a challenging task, but at VISIO we are at home in this area. In this article, we will introduce you to some tips for designing an attractive and at the same time safe entrance gate.

1.     Think carefully about the type of entrance gate

There are several types of entrance gates, based on which you can choose the appropriate type for your property. The wing entrance gate is one of them. It provides entry to the property while saving space across the width of your property.

The swing gate works on two drives, which independently and at the same time open both wings, either inward into the property or outward. This type can also be made from one wing, when the whole wing is placed on the right or left side and, depending on the circumstances, opens either towards the property or out.

The second type of entrance gate is a sliding one, which moves along the plot. Its advantage is that it does not take up space on the property itself, which makes it suitable to use if you do not have a driveway or enough space to open a swing gate.

2.    Look for functional solutions that will work for you

In addition to the previous types of entrance gates, you can find a less traditional type of gate with us, which many of you may not have even known about. At VISIO, we focus on the needs of our customers and always strive to find solutions that will meet their needs in the long term. That is why we also offer a folding type of entrance gates, which are from the wing category. Opening a folding wing gate consists of a simple process where the wing is folded into two parts, which allows you to save up to 50% of the space around the gate.

The wing structure itself consists of two independent frames that are connected by rigid circular hinges, ensuring that the wing can be folded in the middle. The FOLD system is located in the lower part of both wings, using a clever mechanism to properly fold the wings and slowly pull them together.

3.    The right material, which will ensure a long service life of the entrance gate

It is necessary to look at the choice of entrance gate material from a long-term perspective. But mostly you should think about:

  • The quality of the material
  • Lifetime of the material
  • Fill type

The quality and durability of the material is our top priority. That is why we work with high-quality steel that provides a long service life for various climatic conditions. The processing of the gate is the basis for a high-quality and safe entrance gate, where even the smallest details should not be neglected.

As a manufacturer of high-quality entrance gates, we have welding certificates, and we use high-quality equipment and certified materials, so you don’t have to worry about the quality and strength of our frames. We rivet the filling into the structures so that in the event of mechanical damage it is possible to replace only the given damaged part. All manufactured products are then galvanized and powder-coated, for corrosion protection and long-term durability.

4.     Think of a design that will be timeless

We understand the special preferences of our customers, so we know that everyone has their own taste. That is why you can find more than 40 design versions of entrance gates and fences from which you can choose the one you like or that is visually in harmony with the exterior of the house or with the accessories on the property. You can choose from lamellar designs, drawn metal, 3D and perforated metal, and premium or atypical designs.

5.     Complete the gate with safety features

One of the already mentioned security elements is the gate drive itself. Even though some clients do not look for automatic gate drives, it is a great choice for securing your property. With every gate with a drive, it is necessary to count on the safety elements that you can find with us in ROGER technology.

Fresh news is, for example, new LED beacons with an interesting design, brushless technology that offers several smart options, Wi-Fi connection of drives with your household, and the like. In addition to innovation, ROGER strives to differentiate itself in design. Proof can be the beacon itself, which is supplied in orange or white, the option to choose the color of the drive cover (black or white), interestingly shaped controllers, or photocells. In addition, ROGER technology allows the drive to be controlled from the comfort of your mobile via a Wi-Fi module.
