Swing or Slide Electric Gates

Swing and slide gates each have their advantages and disadvantages. Some entrances require a sliding gate.

Sliding gates are usually required on premises that have a small footprint or are in areas where it is not functional to have a gate swing.

Sliding gates have the challenge of needing to run along tracks. The tracks need to be located on a flat surface to work properly.

How an automatic gate will powered is often overlooked. If power isn’t connected to the location of the gate it will need to be connected. This is usually not expensive to connect power unless a connection point is far away. However, it is nececary to connect power from the grid or the gate will not function.

Solar power can be a good option to help reduce gate power costs. This is especially so if the gate is opened and closed during daylight hours.
