Aluminium vs Steel

steel gateThere are differences between the two materials you need to know about before you make your choice for a gate.

Steel is inclined to rust, whereas Aluminiuim does not

Aluminium is not corrosive but steel and even galvanised steel is, so it is prone to rust in some areas.

All joints in a steel gate may be welded but each joint is painted with a cold galvanising paint that breaks down over time.

Rust is aggravated due to bad weather conditions like rain or ice.  It does speed up the process, thus decreasing the gate's product life.  

When this happens, you are left with an eyesore at your property entrance.bent aluminum gate

Even though hot dip galvanising would eliminate the need to apply cold galvanising, large gates are not handled well by the process and could be slightly warped.

Although painting steel gates is often recommended, the fact that the gate is constantly moving can cause chips which open the steel structire to rust.

Aluminium on the other hand, is protected by a thin layer of its natural corrosion properties, aluminium oxide which is a natural, rust resistant shield, thus aluminium gates remain aesthetically pleasing for years.

Steel on the other hand is a wise choice for added security, as aluminium is easily bent whereas steel is not.

If security is your priority then steel security gates would probably be your best option.

Steel Gate Safety

sliding steel security gateMaking sure our homes or businesses are safe by installing good quality walling or fencing is not our only priority.

We also need to ensure that we have strong gates which are working properly.

To ensure the gates are in good working condition, it is advisable to check them regularly to ensure they are functioning as they should be.

Check regularly that there is nothing on the gate tracks to prevent it from closing properly, e.g. mud or debris. Once the gate is stopped from closing by any obstacle, it will merely open again, and will then give easy access to your property.

anti vandalismYou can also install an anti-vandalism bracket on your gate, to prevent anyone from tampering with it, and thus giving easy access. Another good idea is to have an anti-crashing kit fitted which links to your alarm system. This will ensure that the alarm is activated should anyone try to tamper with the gate.

Whether you choose steel swinging gates, or steel sliding gates, always check to see that they are in proper working condition.

Steel gates are a very good option, as they do not offer easy access to your properly as would for instance a wooden gate.
