Driveway Security: Essential Tips & Benefits of Steel Gates for NZ Property Managers

Property managers frequently focus on guarding tenants doors and windows, but they frequently ignore the necessity of driveway security. Because the driveway is typically the first point of access into a property, it is vital to keep it secure.

A well-secured driveway deters intruders by sending a clear message that your property is not an easy target, aiding in the prevention of break-ins and other security breaches. By investing in measures such as a Steel Gates, Bollards or Ram-beams, you can help protect the property from theft, vandalism, and other forms of damage.

Let’s take a look at why it’s critical to invest in driveway security measures.

Tips for Boosting Your Driveway Security

Essential Tips for Driveway Security

There are various factors to consider when it comes to driveway security. These are some important pointers for property managers to remember:

  1. Have Xpanda perform a Risk Assessment: Begin by examining your property’s possible dangers and weaknesses. We can assist you in determining the type of security solution that is best suited to your requirements.
  2. Select the Best Security Solution: There are a variety of driveway security options available, such as removeable Bollards, Swing or slide barriers. Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each and select the one that best meets your requirements.
  3. Install Security Lighting: Adequate lighting is critical for discouraging burglars and boosting visibility at night. Consider adding motion-activated lighting around the perimeter of your property. (Xpanda can’t help with that part but your friendly local Electrician can)

Benefits of Steel Gates for Driveway Security

Steel gates are a wonderful investment for any property manager wishing to improve the security and appearance of their property. Steel gates, unlike other gate materials such as wood or aluminium, are exceptionally durable and corrosion resistant, making them an excellent choice for outdoor use.

Steel gates stop intruders on foot as well as in vehicles. If you have only bollards for example, people can still walk through and cause mischief unhindered. 

Not only do they last longer, but its tamper-proof design makes them extremely tough to break into, giving unrivalled security for your tenant. This extra layer of security can provide you and your tenants with piece of mind, knowing that they are safe from attackers.

Steel gates are aesthetically pleasing as well as useful, offering a modern and sleek look to any property. They are available in a range of styles and finishes, allowing you to select the ideal design to complement the aesthetic of your property.

All Xpanda outdoor gates are hot-dip galvanised for corrosion resistance. Many on the market are only zinc coated which does not last. 

On top of galvanising, powder coating is available! Powder coating is a finishing technique that includes applying a dry powder composed of finely ground colour and resin particles to a surface. The powder is then heated and fused to form a smooth, long-lasting covering. Powder coating outperforms traditional liquid painting in terms of longevity, resistance to chipping, scratching, fading, and corrosion.

If you want the strongest vehicle-stopping option for driveway security, a steel swinging ram-beam is a fantastic alternative. With its combination of unrivalled strength, durability, low maintenance, and a range of colour options, they are certain to provide you with the security and peace of mind you require to keep your property safe.
