Two distinctive types of gates:
You can choose between a dual swing or a sliding gate model depending on the conditions related to access your property. Both present their advantages.
Single or dual swing gate: A swing gate consists of one (access for pedestrian without opening the whole gate) or two leaves (for vehicle access). A swing gate allows ease of use and flexibility. The opening is usually done from the inside since the law states that your gate must not encroach on the public road. Please pay attention to the fact that a swing gate needs a considerable amount of space on your driveway to function properly. The installation is relatively easy, check out our installation HERE.
Sliding gate: This is the most suitable model for narrower house entrances or sloping driveways. The ideal solution will be a sideway opening. The sliding gate is installed on a drive rack and moves laterally. It can open on the right or left, as desired. Both types of operation are available when making your selection in the product configurator. The installation is relatively easy, check out our installation HERE.
