When will I need a sloped Chain Link Swing gate?

If the slope or grade between the opening is so significant that a standard level gate will allow too large of an opening between the low side of the grade and the bottom rail of the gate, you may need to provide a slope gate.  A slope gate is built so that the bottom and top rails of the gate follow the slope of the grade between the opening.  A sloped gate will have to be hung on the low side of the opening to avoid bottoming-out the gate as it opens.  Sloped gates must be single swings.  A double drive sloped gate will not work in consideration that the leaf installed at the top of the slope will bottom-out as you open the gate.  However, verify your grade prior to making this determination as there is one scenario where a sloped double drive gate will work.  If the grade also slopes down perpendicularly to the opening or drops from the gate posts to where the nose of the gate will rest when in the full open position, you may be able to use a double drive slope gate.
