We recommend hot-dip galvanizing your driveway gate to protect against corrosion and a powder-coat finish that will provide ever lasting protection against scratches, chips, fading. Every corner, edge, and groove of your gate will be protected.
Reliability is very important in a driveway gate. You need a gate that will be functional for years to come. You can choose to go with a swinging driveway gate that requires manual operation or choose to go with an electronic gate opener operated by sensor and remote control or key pad.
Things to Consider about Driveway Gates
Sliding gate: These gates are space savers. They are convenient for smaller driveways or driveways that have a sharp or curvy entrance to them. They also are more beneficial for driveways that are positioned in a slight incline or decline. These gates will require a track and roll set up on your driveway to allow the gate to slide open and shut.
Swinging gate: Depending on the length, these gates can be one single gate opening from one end of the gate or a double gate usually opening in the middle where the gates are evenly split. They are more appropriate for larger properties with sufficient driveway space. They are easy to open and close.
Automated electric gate: These gates are known for their convenience in access. Opening this gate can range from a push of a button, to a pass coded key pad, or intercom system. Automated electric gates can be conveniently accessed from a few feet away from home as you are approaching your driveway. Automated electric gates can also include an intercom system for your guests.
