Gates are one of the most important security features for your property. These access points are the obvious place for intruders to target and break through the security. This is the reason why it is important to choose the right security gates for your property. To ensure top-notch security, your property needs gates that are strong, and reliable.

Major varieties of the gates available are:
  • Sliding gates
  • Swing gates
  • Cantilever sliding

Each gate has specific features and benefits. Both sliding and swing gates can be integrated into your property for top security. Installing the right security gate is a great foundation for all security needs of the property.

Sliding Gates

Traditional gates with wheels mounted that slide along a track is called sliding gates. Generally, these gates are single units and open along the property line or fence. However bi-parting gates are available which open and close on both sides of the property line. The traditional sliding gates can be manufactured by using a variety of materials such as iron, aluminum, steel, wood, and composite.

Sometimes the sliding gates are automated to enhance security, which means they can be operated both manually and electronically.

  • As they slide along the fence line, the sliding gates take up minimal space. These gates allow vehicles and pedestrians to access points of the property safely and easily.
  • Sliding gates are ideal solutions where the access points are particularly wide. These gates do not swing freely, rather these gates run along a floor track. So they don’t sag under their weight.

Few things to consider when installing the sliding gates:

The sliding gate has many moving parts. So they tend to become nosier. Regular maintenance of these gates will make them the best and provide maximum protection. Also installing the floor tracks on sloping parts is quite tedious. Maintenance at regular intervals will help to remove the debris on the tracks to ensure free movement.

Swinging Gates

Swing gates are designed to rotate around the hinges which are fixed on gate posts at the sides of the gate’s entrance. If you are looking for less expensive options, then single swing gates are best suitable. Single and double swing gates can open both inwards and outwards. It is important to consider the room space when installing the swing gates as they should not obstruct the sidewalk in the streets.

Benefits

  • Swing gates are considered to be a safer option in many options. These gates are considered to be a safer option for little hands and fingers as they have very few moving parts and there is less opportunity for children when they open or close the gate.
  • Swing gates are preferred for use at parks, childcare facilities, and other public places.
  • Swing gates allow easier access for pedestrians and vehicles that are approaching from either side as they can be accessed from either side.
  • They require less set-up time. No track floors are required. Hence they are considered a cheaper and budget-friendly option.
  • Swing gates have lesser moving parts. So maintenance of this gate is lesser.

Few points to consider when swing gates are to be installed:

These gates are heavy to open and close. So motorizing the gates comes in handy in operating these gates.

Swing gates require space to operate. So if the access points are narrow, the swinging style gates may not be the best option.
