Types of Electric Gates

In the past, only the rich and famous could afford to have automatic gates. A Gate Keypad before was considered very high-tech and only celebrities and affluent businessmen could own one. But now, anyone can afford to have an electric gate because there are various types available for different budgets. Naturally, a basic gate would cost lesser than a gigantic gate. If you only have a small property you can easily afford to have an electric gate installed.

Electric gate have three basic types:

A swinging gate can be opened via a keypad or remote control. The gate will swing open in one direction on its hinges to allow entrance to the property. This is the most popular type of electric gate. It is ideal for a flat surface with plenty of space and no significant incline. With this type of gate, there is no need for a complete stop of the vehicle.

The sliding gate can also be opened by keypad or remote control. However, there is no backward or forward movement of the gate because it will only slide horizontally to one side. This type is ideal in a mountainous terrain or steep slope.

Last is the articulated electronic gate. It consists of several small gates and hinged as one on a rail. This is considered as the least attractive of the three but is perfect for small spaces.

Automatic gate provide convenience to the homeowner or businessman in the case of a commercial property.
