What kind of gates can I choose from for my new fence?

There are several types of gates you can choose from to complement your new fence. Here are some popular options: 

  1. Swinging Gates: Swinging gates are the most common type of gate and operate like a traditional door. They can swing inward or outward, and can be manual or automated. These gates use various latches for security, such as gravity latches, a padlock, magnets, and spring latches.  
  1. Sliding Gates: Sliding gates are ideal for properties with limited space or steep driveways. They slide along a track and can be automated for convenience. You can secure these gates with a drop bolt, a keyed lock, or even an automated gate opener, which can be beneficial if the gate is meant to admit vehicles and not just people on foot. 
  1. Double Gates: Double gates consist of two swinging gates that meet in the middle. They provide a wider entrance than a single gate, making it easier to accommodate large vehicles such as trucks, RVs, or trailers. This can also reduce traffic congestion to the property and improve the flow of vehicles. If you have agricultural property, double gates will accommodate tractors or trailers, and make it easier for livestock to come and go when the gates are opened.  
  1. Rolling Gates: Rolling gates are similar to sliding gates but roll along a track on the ground rather than on a track attached to a fence. They are commonly used for commercial properties with high traffic. 
  1. Garden Gates: Garden gates are smaller gates designed to provide access to a garden or yard area. They are typically decorative and can be customized to match the style of your fence in an area with a great deal of landscaping or to provide access to a patio.
