Adding A Pedestrian Access Gate To Your Driveway

Did you know that when you design a custom residential gate system with Creative Door Services™ you can add a pedestrian access gate with a separate keypad and access controls? Installing a pedestrian access gate is a stylish and convenient upgrade you may want to consider to increase the security of your property and your home’s resale value.

The Benefits of Having A Pedestrian Access Gate

In addition to eliminating unauthorized foot traffic on your property, a pedestrian access gate can help you:

  1. Provide convenient access. A pedestrian access gate allows you to easily enter and exit your property without having to open your entire driveway gate.

  2. Ensure your kids and pets safety. A pedestrian access gate provides you with a means to keep your kids and pets at a safe distance from busy streets while allowing them to play and wander through your outdoor space freely.

  3. Prevent unwanted solicitors. If you’re a relatively private person and don’t like to be bothered by unwanted solicitors, a pedestrian access gate can help you maintain your privacy.

  4. Increase curb your appeal. When you choose a pedestrian access gate that complements your home’s exterior, you can increase your property’s curb appeal. It also makes your home more attractive to potential buyers.

You can also choose to include further security measures on and around your pedestrian access gate, such as motion detector lights and surveillance cameras to keep you and your family safe.

Designing A Pedestrian Access Gate

Creative Door Services™ offers custom pedestrian access gate solutions. We’ll work with you to find or create a gate that meets your needs. However, the two main things you’ll need to consider are what material you want your gate to be made of and what kind of access options you want it to provide.

1. Material

When designing a custom pedestrian access gate, it’s important to choose the right material for your needs. Here’s an overview of the different options available:

  • Steel is a heavy-duty material that can withstand inclement weather and is resistant to impact. All our steel gates are finished with a powder coating to ensure they don’t rust, peel, or fade.

  • Glass is a stylish material that allows natural light to flow into your backyard while offering full privacy from nosy neighbours. You can choose from clear or frosted glass depending on your needs and the desired look.

  • Aluminum is a durable and lightweight material that’s naturally rust-resistant. You can choose from several colours to match your driveway gate or create an entirely unique look.

  • Wood adds rustic charm to the exterior of your home and comes in many decorative styles. However, wood gates require more upkeep than metal ones. Therefore, to stand up to the elements and prevent fading, they need to be regularly refinished.

  • Wrought iron is a great choice if you’re looking for an ornate and intricate gate. Wrought iron gates perfectly complement homes with traditional architecture styles such as French-style homes, Victorian houses, Tudor-style homes, and Mediterranean-style houses.

You can also customize the height and width of your gate, the spacing between the pickets, and choose between a variety of designs for the tops and finials.

2. Access

If you add a pedestrian access gate to your driveway gate system, you can install separate access controls for greater convenience. For example, you could put in a wireless keypad that allows you to enter a numeric code to access your property when you’re on foot.

In addition, you can opt to connect your pedestrian access gate to a Wi-Fi-enabled opener to remotely control and monitor it using your smartphone. You can keep track of what’s going on around your gate, receive alerts whenever it’s opened, and access a complete log of gate activity with dates and times.

Furthermore, you can add panic bars that allow you to quickly open your gate in the event of an emergency as well as a self-closing device that forces the gate to close to prevent it from being left open.

Once you’ve chosen your gate, our team will take care of the installation and ensure that your gate system functions optimally and meets all security standards.
