A Little Information About Wrought Iron Gates

Commercial Gates

Commercial gates are built for performance over aesthetics so you wouldn’t want to use them in a residential setting. Instead of choosing a gate based on how it looks, you need to decide where you will be using the gate and what it needs to do:

Automatic Slide Gates

These gates are most often used for large businesses that want to restrict traffic to their parking lot. The gate has wheels attached to the bottom that lets them slide into and out of place as needed. These require a lot of room to operate since the entire gate has to slide to the side when it opens. If you don’t have ample room on either side of your driveway then this gate will not work for you.

V Track Slide Gates

The V-type slide gate is the most common type and they last for quite a while. It does not take up nearly as much room as a standard sliding gate but it isn’t a good choice if your location experiences a lot of snow and ice. Any debris can block the track and stop the gate from opening.

Rear Pipe Track Slide Gates

These are lower-end chain link gates that take up about as much room as a V track gate. They can be manual or automatic but if you make one into an automatic you have to replace one of the wheels with a “V”-track wheel and install a ground track.

Cantilever Slide Gates

These gates are perfect for the snowy conditions that give the slide gates so much trouble. Instead of having wheels on the ground, these gates use wheels on a post so they are not bothered by debris.

Swing Gates

These are similar to the gates you would see on a residential fence. They can be installed as a single that opens like a standard door or a double that swings open like French doors. You just have to make sure you either set them back from the road or install them to swing inward so you don’t injure a passerby.

Barrier Gates

If you have ever been in a parking garage or driven through a toll booth then you are already familiar with this type of gate. They are purely for vehicle or traffic control but they are an extremely cost-effective solution if you have a traffic problem.

Pivot Gates

When you need added security a Pivot gate is like the Barrier gate’s big brother. Imagine that instead of a piece of wood, an 8-foot tall steel wall rises and falls to admit your vehicle and you get the idea behind a Pivot gate.

Lift Gates

Liftgates are extremely expensive and secure so you will normally only see them in an industrial setting. They usually consist of an enormous and heavy gate that is lifted up to let you drive under before being lowered back into place.
