Imagine getting out of your truck or car each time you arrive “home” finally after a long day in town or hauling loads across the countryside or mountains. You’re back, but you’re not really there yet. You have to stop your car, get out and unlock the gate or just loosen the chain. Swing the gate open and maybe tie it up, then you get back into your car, drive through and park again. Get out and close the gate. That’s five steps total and that’s a waste of gas (whether your car is idling or using extra energy to stop and start twice). It’s no wonder that electric gate openers are in widespread use across the country. Much like a garage door, these devices usually rely on a car battery to prop the gate open and then close it 30 seconds later. They are secure, reliable, and they save a lot of energy.

These gates use car batteries in most cases because they are cheap, convenient and much easier to place than wires running from the main house. The jump from standalone batteries to trickle charged batteries operating off of a small panel took less than a nanosecond. Trickle charging is one of the best ways to charge batteries, adding to their lives, and the panels don’t have to be too large to make it all work. Just like the panels you might see on roadside emergency phones, lights and even trashcans, these work great for solar powered driveway gates.

Just below are several images and descriptions of these solar powered gate systems.

Whether your driveway gate is an automatic slide or swing gate, a magnetic lock adds another layer of security that is more than worth the increased cost of having one installed as part of an electric gate system.

Chain drive slide gates are quite easy to defeat. A criminally minded person only has to hop the gate or fence and cut the chain to have full access to the property. The addition of a properly installed magnetic lock nearly eliminates the possibility of someone being able to open your driveway gate without authorization.

Swing gates are not as secure as slide gates, but with the addition of a magnetic lock, your gate is at least secured against a person pushing the gate open. Without a magnetic lock, a strong person very well may be able to push your gate open and get to the goodies within that you were hoping to protect.

As its name implies, a slide gate either slides on wheels from left to right or right to left. In order to accommodate a slide gate, on either the right or left of the gate, you must have space that is at least equal to the width of your driveway, and then some. Imagine you have a 16’ wide driveway and, therefore, a 16’ slide gate. When that gate opens to allow you to drive into your garage after returning home from shopping, the entire 16’ gate needs enough room to its right or left to fit its 16’ heft, plus an additional 3’ of room, so 19’ of space to the left or right of your gate would be required in this example. If you don’t have enough room to fit the gate on either side of your driveway when it’s open, then a slide gate isn’t likely to work for you (unless you can somehow trade a fresh baked lemon merengue pie or two for some of your neighbor’s driveway space).

Now let’s dive into the differences of each gate type, and learn what makes each gate a preferred option for different applications.

Installing automatic electric gates is not that easy. It is a really complicated process and this is why it is extremely important for the future owners to know what they will use the gate for. They should thoroughly explain to the technician what the purpose of that gate will be so that the technician could recommend the most suitable gate for them. The future owners will also have to choose between different materials, styles, colors, types of automation and ways of opening. There should be a safety check done by the technician before the gate is installed so that the technician could know if the gate is suitable for the given conditions.

As with any other device, some problems may occur during the installation process. These are some of the most usual ones.

Processing and manufacturing plants are very security conscious because they handle material that is either hazardous or that is proprietary in nature and as such outsiders shouldn’t access it.

There are numerous varied types of automatic gates that can deter people, but not all are suitable for processing and manufacturing plants. Some of the types that can work well on such facilities are explained below.
