Security Gates in Leicester & Derby
In today's hectic work and home environments, it is always a good idea to add another level of security and convenience to your home and your family, with the latest security gates, automation products and entrance solutions from Access Controls, available in Leicester, Derby and the surrounding areas. Security gates are so great for properties for many reasons such as:
- Security for your family and home when yourself or the family are not around - accessing your property is restricted by automated gates
- The ability for your family to check who each caller is before they've knocked on your front door, with the different options on audio/video intercom system and controls or activation of the controlled gates from inside your property
- Protecting your children when they are playing out on the drive and your peace of mind whilst in the house knowing that the ability to access your home from the road is controlled and barred by you
- Your pride and joy parked on your property, secure from thieves any time of the day or night, as access to and from the road is restricted by an automated gate system
Taking into account these considerations, Access Controls allows you, the homeowner, to control all access to your home through the power of your security gate. This provides security for you, your property & belongings and most importantly your family all with ease, with the touch of a button with one of our security gates.

Which Gate System Is Right For Me?
How to build a wish list for your ideal system
- Existing gates or new gates?
- Wood or metal gates?
- To swing open or slide?
- Electric gate or manual?
Existing gates or new gates?
It is generally possible to convert most existing manual gates to automatic; your Access Controls approved installer will be able to offer you advice to any changes that may be necessary. It is important to consider the physical condition of gate posts and existing gates, timber or steel to ensure that they are suitable for automation and that any posts are suitable for mounting gate operators and accessories. If you are considering a new security gate installation, our surveyor will be able to advise you or your contractor the exact requirement regarding post sizes, positions, suitable gates and any cable provisions etc.

Swing and Slide Gates
The choice is largely down to the space available – swing security gates require a clear space for the opening- added opening distances can be achieved on underground systems by installing the gates on the inner side of the property and adding a 120 / or 180 degree operators, as most operators offer 90-110 degree opening distance. Sliding gates are perhaps the best choice when drive space is limited as they use the least space when opening.
