Want to complete your fence with a custom-made sliding or swinging gate? Want to add value and change the aesthetics of your home? Gates can add a touch of elegance and class to your home as well as maximise security. Gates come in a variety of sizes and styles and can be custom made to suit the needs of the premise. From simple and traditional, to stylish and contemporary designs, there is a gate to suit all your required needs.
Types of Gates – Sliding vs Swinging
There are two different types of gates available. These include sliding gates or swinging gates.
Sliding gates are generally a better option if you are limited on space at the premises. As they slide along the fence line, this style takes up less space. Sliding gates are also more suitable for wider access driveways because they have their weight balanced by a running floor track and thus don’t sag under their own weight.
Swinging gates are considered safer options as there is not as many moving parts, meaning they are more utilised at parks, shopping centres and public places. Swinging gates can also swing either direction, making flexibility available to customers. As swinging gates have fewer moving parts, they are also generally a cheaper option than sliding gates.
