Different Types of Gates
Every premises is unique and reflects the owner’s personality. Whether it is a home or a commercial space, the foremost appearance is represented by the gate at the front. Gates not only serve an aesthetic purpose but also provide security, safety, and convenience to the users. Thus, there’s much more to the front gate than meets the eye.
There are many different types of gates available in the market, including automatic, manual, swing, slide, up-and-over, etc. Each one has its own merits or characteristics, and it all depends on what are the owner’s requirements. For example, automatic gates are best for high-traffic business premises that need constant operation.
Here is a complete guide to help you decide the best gate type for your property.
Swing gates can operate inward or outwards as per the installation requirement. These gates need dedicated space equal to the length of the gate on the pavement or street to open fully. This is to protect any oncoming traffic on the path/road. The most common exterior swing doors are double swing French doors. These doors require a completely flat driveway and shouldn’t exceed 18 feet in length.
Swing doors are mainly of four types:
- Automatic swing gates
- Balustrade gates
- Palisade gates
- Welded mesh design
At Cypress Railings, we can customize swing doors to include even more designs as per customer’s choice. Automatic swing gates can be equipped with more features and accessories such as remote control, barbed wire etc.
These are single piece gates that open either to the left or right direction of the operating user. The driveway must have the space to account for the entire length of the gate so that the gate can open fully. The sliding gate can of various types depending on the user’s premises, style and operation.
- V-Track Type – The most popular slide gate variety is the V-Track. These are highly reliable, easy-to-operate, and economical. However, snow build-up can deter their functionality.
- Rear Pipe – There are two wheels located on the gate ends to support the opening action. The wheel carriage includes a V-track and a wheel carriage assembly.
- Cantilever – This type is ideal for heavy snow regions. Here, the wheels are located vertically and do not touch the ground. The gate can move freely in the middle as the wheels at both ends deliver optimum rotational space.
Sliding gates can be longer – up to 12 meters in width! Even the floor is uneven, the driveway is small, or the budget is less, sliding doors are the right choice for multiple properties.
Vertical Lift Gates
Space is at a premium in the urban landscape. So, vertical gates the perfect option to utilize limited space to the maximum ability. Vertical gates open upwards and are aided by automatic mechanisms. Thus, all the area underneath the gate is usable for the user.
Commercial and industrial premises require maximum optimum utilization of the premises, and these gates deliver both efficiency and performance. Vertical gates are an excellent choice for apartment parking as well.
Bi-folding gates are a high-speed alternative to traditional gates, and they deliver more convenience. The two gate panels are further divided into further two sub-panels to offer more comfort. High traffic areas can be handled better with bi-folding gates. These gates promise more security quotient along with continual traffic management.
