Different Types of Gates
Every premise 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 users. Thus, there’s much more to the front gate than meets the eye.
There are many different types of driveway gates available in the market, including automatic, manual, swing, slide, up-and-over,electric driveway gates. 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 a 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
- 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 act. 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.
