Gates are often the finishing touch to residences, country estates,
gated communities, condominium and apartment complexes, ranches and businesses.
Gates are used in conjunction with a fence system by a variety of residential and business applications to provide and control access to particular areas.
They play an important role in a security system. Swing gates – This style is available in double or single drive applications, and requires two gate operators (one for each side.) Cantilever gates – These gates use a counter-balance load bearing design to support the entire weight of the gate as it reaches across the entryway.
A number of factors must also be considered, such as:
- How will the property be entered?
- What access control will be used – radio controlled, telephone entry, or card reader?
- How will people exit?
