Which Type of Gate Should You Pick?

Type of Gate You Should Pick

May 15, 2018

Picking a gate can be difficult. Knowing what type will function and look best can be challenging with so many options. To help, here are four gate types explained.

Sliding Gate

A sliding gate is the perfect option if you have a narrow space available. They are available in a wide range of colours and styles, and are a great choice if you have a short driveway. Some things to consider when installing a sliding gate are whether or not you want to fix the sliding gate track onto the ground across your driveway, and which direction you want your gate to slide in.

Which Type of Gate Should You Pick?

Pedestrian Gate

This is a small gate used to control foot traffic. It is great for keeping the security of your fencing intact, whilst allowing convenient pedestrian access. It is typically a small gate, narrow enough that vehicles cannot pass through. You will find pedestrian gates are used all over the world for various purposes, such as in a pool fence or park fencing.

Swing Gate

A swing gate has a hinged opening motion that remains stationary at one end and swings open and closed at the other. They require more space than other gate options, so typically they are placed on longer driveways. Depending on how it is built, you may have the option of this gate swinging both ways.

Automatic Gate

Almost any style of gate can be installed with an automatic operator. Which means you can pick the perfect type and style and make it automatic for the easy convenience. Simply, click the remote and drive through.
