It isn't recommended to rely solely on a 'locking' operator to provide total security. The addition of extra locks will make forced entry much more difficult. A sliding gate will provide more security than swing gates against vehicle ramming.
Electric gates alone cannot guarantee a completely secure environment, but used in combination with further security measures will act as a deterrent to potential intruders. Some of these additional measures may include electronic keycard and keypad entry, security cameras or even a security guard.
Professionally installed electric gates will serve to provide additional security for any property together with the privacy sought by most home owners.
