Swing gates are best when they can be opened with only one arm. Aluminum is a very light metal, so these gates are especially easy to open. Swing gates are the most popular style of driveway gate, and they come at a more affordable price than others.
Aluminum swing gate benefits:
- Affordable price point
- Effortless movement
- Lower maintenance than sliding gates
- Natural corrosion resistance
If you’re considering installing a swing gate, make sure that your driveway is mostly level. Swing gates cannot open up a hill, so if you have any tilt to your property make sure the gate could open downhill. Try to install it so the gate leaves open toward your house instead of the street. This will prevent cars from backing up into traffic to avoid getting dinged by your gate.
Aluminum swing gates can be color coated with polyester powder or mill finish aluminum. If you would like it powder coated, the gate and all accessories will be sand blasted or treated chemically to ensure proper coating attachment.
