Types of Electric Gates & Fences

If security and privacy are your primary concerns, you should consider installing electric gates and fences. These structures will keep intruders away from your property and ensure you don’t have to worry about your loved ones or valuables. Our clients here at Boston Ironworks often ask for advice on fabricated gates & doors. Here’s a brief introduction to different types of electric gates and fences:

Swing Gate

This is one of the most popular types of gates among residential property owners. These gates are smaller and take up less space on the driveway. You can install either manual or mechanized swing gates on your property. Manual ones are more affordable but mechanized ones are more secure as they’re not as easy to break into. You can install single or double panel gates on your property based on your requirements and the size of the entryway. You also have a choice between materials like wood, wrought iron, and aluminum. People who wish for higher privacy and security often choose wood.

Sliding Gate

Swing gates open inward or outward while sliding gates open to the left or right based on the mechanism and style of gate. These gates are ideal for homes that are located on a busy street with little driveway space available. Sliding gates open quickly and will slide towards the side, so the car doesn’t have to wait on the road for the gates to open. If your driveway is on a slope on uneven terrain, this gate is the best option for you.

Different Types of Automated Systems

  • Remote or Automatic Detection – This system automatically detects the car that approaches the driveway and opens. Only approved cars with the detection system installed within them can trigger the gate opening mechanism so you don’t have to worry about security.
  • Battery-Powered Gates – Battery powered gates are useful if you don’t have a power grid or supply near the driveway entrance. The battery operates the gates and can be replaced or recharged whenever required.
  • Solar-Powered Gates – Solar-powered gates are efficient and reliable, which is why many homeowners install them confidently in their home. The panels are attached to the gates and have a backup battery so you can be certain they will always open for you.
