Pedestrian Gates – What Accessories Do I Need?

Every home in Perth would be made better with a fence added to it. Fences are excellent for families who own pets and want to let them run around the yard without being monitored. They definitely add to the resale value too. Of course, fences are still great for two of their earliest purposes as well: privacy and security.

If you’re thinking about getting a fence for your home, don’t forget about the important role a gate plays too. You can find affordable gates in Perth that will look great and keep your fenced in yard closed off from the rest of the world.

However, you should also take some time to consider the various accessories you could add to it as well.


Obviously, all the gates in Perth have a few things in common. One of those things is hinges. They are essential to the function of a gate. While you may have to eventually buy some to replace old ones, there’s no reason not to think of them as fashionable accessories too.

Stainless steel is always a preferable material. Aside from its durability, a stainless steel hinge simply looks really nice too. It’s an easy way to add a touch of class to your gate.

Another option where hinges are concerned is self-closing. If you don’t want to have to worry about whether you shut your gate all the way closed when you left, a self-closing one will do the trick every time.

Lockwood Latch

You can use a Lockwood latch with a stainless steel hinge for better security and a nice modern finish to your gate. Aside from how durable this lock is, it also comes with a 25-year warranty.

Additionally, you can elect to configure your latch with an electric strike mechanism. While many of you may be just fine with the traditional manual operation, the electric strike accessory conveniently unlocks a gate from a control inside your home. It’s perfect for letting guests in.


Finally, many in Perth have gates with keypads on them. They work much like the latch above, but with buttons you push to get in instead of keys. Use this accessory with the stainless steel hinge for best results.

Having a gate is a great way to add to your Perth property in terms of style and security. If you’d like help picking one out or deciding on accessories, let our friendly staff at Boardwalk help by calling 1300 112 333.
