Everything You Need To Know About Gate Automation

Is it time for you to update the fencing around your building or are you looking to upgrade your gate automation system that’s already in place? With several options out there, it’s hard to decide what is ultimately best for your company and employees’ security. It all comes down to how you want your automated gate to function; sliding or swinging. 

Automatic Gate Types

Slide: These gates slide horizontally to permit vehicular traffic and make accessibility a bit easier. There are options for single or double-date assemblies and offer possibilities of sliding left or right to clear the driveway effectively. Slide gates require a track and roller assembly installed parallel to the fence line. These types of gates work best along flat driveways with enough space on both sides to accommodate them. 

Swing: These gates swing open like a door, these gates also have options for single or double-gate assemblies and will rotate inward to clear the driveway. The type of operator will determine if it uses a level or an articulated arm to pivot the gates open and closed. These gates require less space than the slide gates to open and shut.
