A gate is secure in most circumstances from most people.
Creative doors in Canada remind us that, “many crimes are opportunistic in nature. This means the more difficult it is to gain entry to your property, the less likely it is would-be burglars are going to target it.”
So, in most cases, simply having an automatic gate is sufficient deterrent to crime. Even though a gate can be forced open, the gate itself suggests you shouldn’t try to.
However, that won’t stop a Humvee from crashing through! Even in this instance though, a sliding gate will require a lot of effort to clear the broken gate from the path.
Realistically, this is not a threat that many people need to worry about.
