When choosing your new gates keep one thing in mind
You never get a second chance to make a good first impression!
about your new entry.
Swing gates are the most common gate for residential
Slide gates are mostly used in commercial applications
or where the landscaping won't allow the use of a swing gate system.
Lift Gates are used where the landscape won't allow the
use of a swing or slide gate system.
Barrier arms are commonly used in parking control applications
or as an anti-tailgating assist for apartments, factories, or facilities where single controlled entry is required.
What materials are available for gates?
Aluminum is commonly used where weight is a factor.
Decorative steel is probably the most common used in areas
that require a stronger material. It's less expensive to manufacture than iron and still gives you a decorative entry.
Wrought Iron is the most costly of the material to use
but it offers an ol' world charm that can't be duplicated with any other material.
Wood is used where the proper decor is necessary.
Many times the material doesn't matter other than when cost or strength issues become
a driving decision in the material selection.
If I have existing columns can I add a gate?
The simple answer is yes. First we must know how the columns were built internally.
The gate will add stress to any column and if it wasn't built with adding a gate in mind other options may be necessary. Most
times the simple answer is to add a post next to in the rear of the column to support a new gate. This is the best way to
support your new gate without destroying the existing column.
