Industrial Electric Security Gates
A swing gate may be specified when the site configuration of a slide gate counterbalance along with full movement of the slide will not allow installation. Swing gates are used many times between two buildings or where the ground may conflict with the positioning of the gate post. Lift Gates are great in cases of high usage, especially when there is not enough space outside of the gate opening for other gates to retract before hitting an obstacle. The structural strength of the gate, combined with a chain drive motor lifts the gate open and pulls the gate closed. A slide gate has a cantilever system that is designed appropriately for openings up to 40 feet for singles and up to 80 feet for doubles.
