WHAT GATE OPENING STYLE WILL BE BEST?
When choosing what kind of gate opening style you need, there are a few important factors to consider…
How much space do you have available on your drive?
Swing gates open inwards on to your driveway. If space is at a premium, meaning that parking space will be limited if you need to allow for swing gates then you may want to consider a set of sliding gates instead.
In order to have a sliding gate installed, you need to have the equivalent space, the width of your gate to the side of your entrance for the gate to slide back against when open.
Alternatively to traditional sliding gates, if you do not want to undertake groundworks across your driveway to lay tracking, you could consider using a cantilever system. This suspended way of operating the gate makes for a cleaner looking install and operates virtually silently.
