Why an automated gate is a superior option to a cattle grid on rural properties

Sun-Power Auto Gates recommends automated gates for farms and various rural properties in Australia.

Offering a superior option over conventional cattle grids, automated gates not only prevent livestock movement but also provide the flexibility to control the movement of different livestock types through the entry or exit.

Additionally, with crime on the rise in rural Australia, automated gates help property owners secure their farms against human intrusion. Security is a major component of Sun-Power customers’ purchase criteria with a significant increase in crime on rural properties throughout Australia.

According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, ‘rural and regional crime research indicates that farm crime rates are highest in either highly accessible or very remote areas rather than those in between’.

While an automatic gate operator is not going to prevent crime occurring at the property, it will act as a deterrent to any potential intruder or thief.
