Without a doubt, automatic gates are much more preferable than manually operated gates. Not only do they bring convenience inaccessibility, but they also add safety and appeal to your property.

There are different types of commonly used automatic gates, each with their own advantages. In selecting one for your home and office, it is important to consider what best fits your preference, from how it looks to how it works.

Still having a hard time choosing the right automatic gate? Check out our quick description for each type below.

Swinging Gates

Swinging gates, or wing gates, are gates which open and close on hinges attached to posts. They swing inward or outward at a maximum of 90⁰ and can come in single or double leafs.

Swinging gates are the easiest to set up since they have no complicated parts. They are also budget-friendly and require less maintenance.

Because of its quiet operation and welcoming appearance, you can use them to give your home a classic ambiance.

Sliding Gates

Sliding Gates, on the other hand, are gates which slide on rollers beneath a deep metal footing. They open and close by gliding the rack back and forth on a horizontal trail.

These gates are composed of automatic locks and integrated safety beams which improve security. It can also give your property a contemporary look and does not take too much space from your landscape and driveway. As such, they are the best choice for small houses and commercial properties.

Folding Gates

Folding gates are gates which consist of two conjoined panels which compress on one side when it opens and unfolds to its original position once it closes.

Among all types of automatic gates, folding gates are the smoothest to operate. Not only do they stack quickly but with our latest technology of being trackless, they also require no runback upon entry and exit. The trackless folding gate gives a fluid and smooth movement with added style. Like swinging gates, they are easy to maintain because they are hinged on sturdy posts. While they are also great in saving space, they are even more ideal in challenging settings like sloping driveways and uneven grounds.


Automatic gates saves more time and reduces maintenance cost in the long run. In picking the perfect automatic gate for your property, you should keep in mind its location and land area, and your gate’s weight, appearance, speed of operation and opening size.
