The choice between an automatic swinging gate and an automatic sliding gate often comes down to space, if your house has a long set back from the front boundary, swinging driveway gates are a good option. If your house is close to the front boundary it is often impractical to have swinging gates because of the space they take up on your driveway when in the open position, generally the requirement is for the gates to swing into the property, it wouldn’t do for the mailman to be riding along on his bike past your gates just as you open them out onto the street. In the case of a close set back the choice would be an aluminium sliding gate.
Most driveway gate motors are designed to swing the driveway gates into the property, this requires enough internal space for the gate to clear any parked vehicles and in most cases there is also a requirement for a pedestrian gate.
There are numerous automatic driveway gate solutions available on the market today, the most common ones require 240v or 24v and Solar options ensuring cheap and safe operation. The DC Solar swinging gate openers are very efficient and run at 20m per minute. Screw drive gate openers have battery backup in case of blackout and the remotes work from up to 80m away.
