Understanding the different kinds of gate entry systems can help you make the right decision as far as what you should install. For instance, you might not require a gate intercom only an opener. An intercom for a gate system is more important if you are managing a business park and you have vehicles normally. Now there are several types of gates available. Here are a few:
- Cantilever (Slide) Gates
- Swing Gates
- Barrier Gates
- Vertical Pivot Gates
- Vertical Lift Gates
Some of these gates need to be automated. For example, vertical pivot gates require a motor to operate it while slide and swing gates don’t necessarily require an opener.
Openers for Gates
You can automate almost everything this also applies to gates. Not only that, but you can also have your gate powered by green energy. Like having a solar panel to simply operate your garage door and your gate. They don’t open often so having it powered by solar energy would make it very affordable. Slide gates can be automated or kept manually operated. They operate as the name implies by sliding on a rail with it’s wheels. Sometimes you will see this type of gate with a chain link fence or a wrought-iron fence. Both options can be automated. Swing gates are the same, in that they too can be automated to make dealing with it that much easier.
