Automatic gates are a convenient solution to manually opening gates that are frequently in use. Typically, automatic gates are installed to driveways or garages, and you may also frequently encounter automatic gates at businesses and secure buildings. There are numerous different types of automatic gates and mechanisms that operate the gates.
Almost any normal type of gate can be converted to an automatic gate, and companies in Australia sometimes specialise in converting ordinary gates to automatic gates. Wooden gates, steel gates, aluminium gates and other forms of gates are all able to be converted to automatic gates with the correct conditions and modifications.
In other cases, automatic gates are sold as a complete kit with the gate itself included. The most common types of automatic gates are swing gates using a mechanical arm, sliding automatic gates and lifting automatic gates. Lifting automatic gates are most commonly found in businesses and secure buildings, and are typically the slowest type of automatic gates.
Sliding automatic gates are suitable for uneven terrain, and swing arm gates are also quite popular. In many cases, mains power will need to be supplied to control the gate, but solar power and other methods can also be purchased from the right supplier.
