Automatic sliding gates utilize electric motors for opening and closing the gates. You can use a transmitter from the comfort of your car to transmit a message to a receiver that will use this command to open or close the gate. Attachment of the automatic gate mechanism is possible on a sliding or swinging gate or you can opt to make a purchase for a complete automatic gate kit.
Automatic gates have evolved over time since their first usage; they have become less expensive and more efficient than the past and there are also more options than there were previously available:
You can now find Bifold gates in the market
Added security is offered by keypad transmitters
Sliding gates are either double or single gates
You can also find solar powered gates in the market
Some gates are linked to Smartphone apps which allow interactions between you and your visitors through an intercom or to open the gate from a considerable distance
Swing barrier gates may have rising hinges allowing your gate to be opened on a slope
Any one of these automatic gate kit types may be installed on already existing gates as long as the said gates are in good condition.
