Your gate is not just an aesthetic addition to your home; it's the first line of defence in keeping everything you cherish safe and secure. But safety extends beyond the physical barriers of your property; it's about something more profound - forging connections within your neighbourhood to create safer and more secure communities. According to our latest Safe Gates Report, a staggering 23% of Australians wouldn't let their children roam freely in their own neighbourhoods. The reason? A lack of community trust. We want to see this change across Australia and improve neighbourhood security. not only help to improve the curb side appeal of your home, but they also protect what’s important to you: your family, your pets, and your home.
Startling statistics reveal that 20% of individuals have faced security breaches at their properties, an alarming wake-up call to the potential threats lurking in our communities. However, what's even more concerning is that a staggering 62% did not feel the need to bolster their security measures in the aftermath of such incidents. To truly foster safer communities, we must start within our homes. A gate with a lockable latch and self-closing hinges is not merely an entry point; it's your first line of defence. A properly maintained gate system deters intruders and ensures that everything and everyone you hold dear remains safe and sound.
The Safe Gates Week Report serves as a wake-up call for all Australians. Strengthening security measures, conducting regular checks, and nurturing neighbourly bonds are not just optional; they are essential steps towards creating safer, more interconnected communities. The challenge—and the opportunity—lies in bridging the trust gap. For more information, visit our Gate Latches & Locks section and explore our D&D Trade Catalogue.
