Although there are a lot of options, must people find themselves purchasing a slide gate, a swing gate, and business owners purchase barrier gates. All of these automated gate systems function differently, but the main purpose is keep you or your property secure.
Automated Slide Gates
An automated slide gate operates exactly how the name implies. A slide gate slides on wheels from right to left or left to right, resembling department store automatic doors. A slide gate requires a lot of space, so you will need to work with a professional contractor before making plans to add an automated slide gate to your property. Automated slide gates come in three styles: “V”-track, rear pipe track and cantilever.
Swing gates open inward or outward. With swing gates, you have two main options: Single swing gates and double swing gates. To help you understand the difference, picture single swing gates opening up like your bathroom door, while doubles swing gates open up like French Doors. Double swing gates are generally preferred, because they are more visually pleasing.
As previously mentioned, these are the types of automated gates used by businesses. Parking garages and tool booths heavily rely on barrier gates. Barrier gates control access in and out of a location, and its specific purpose to provide proper traffic control. If you’re in the market for an automated gate system, Hercules Fence would love to work with you.
