As a Denver metro area property manager, facilities manager, or farmer, you know the value of a good fence with an easy-to-operate gate or gates. If you have an old gate that you’re looking to upgrade for aesthetics or security purposes, you’re in the right place. We provide commercial gate installation for our commercial clients and offer repair services as well.
You may want to replace your existing gate with the same kind. Or you may be interested in learning what your options are. So today, we will go over some of the types of commercial gates to help you decide what’s best for your business, facility, or property.
Keep in mind that the larger the gate, the more likely it is that you will want to have an automatic gate system, where a motorized gate operator takes care of opening and closing the gate. When we come for a site visit, we can go over all of these options and make recommendations.
You can get most of these types of gates in just about any material to match your existing fence. Depending on your budget, some manufacturers can also build custom gates with your logo and custom decorative features. We provide expert commercial gate installation using gates from leading manufacturers.
A swing gate is the type of gate most of us are familiar with from residential applications. In a commercial setting, you may have one swing gate or a pair of swing gates that open on the left and right. Swing gates are common gates for driveway gates at gated communities, assisted living facilities, farms, wineries, and other businesses accessed by a driveway or vehicle path.
Cantilever / Sliding Gates
Sliding gates slide open using wheels and a track in the pavement, or in the cantilever configuration, the gate moves on rollers that run along the top side of the gate. Cantilever gates can be used in uneven terrain as well as gravel.
Vertical Lift Gates
Vertical lift gates don’t require any space to the sides beyond the size of the gate, so are a good solution where space is at a premium. The gate lifts vertically to allow entry and then closes in a downward fashion via a hydraulics system. Vertical lift gates are highly secure and might be the commercial gate of choice for industrial facilities, correctional facilities, and military bases.
Pedestrian Swing Gates
Pedestrian swing gates for commercial facilities are essentially the same gates used in residential applications. Locking mechanism options include:
- Electro-mechanical lock
- Panic bar
- Mortise lock
- Keypad lock
While traditional commercial gates limit vehicular traffic, pedestrian turnstiles control people traffic. They can help limit access when you have long lines of people, such as you might have at theme parks, water parks, and mass transit stations. They can be waist high or full height.
Commercial Automatic Gate Openers
Depending on your business and the size and type of your gate(s), you may need an automatic gate opener or gate operator. We can help you determine what automatic gate system will work best for your needs and budget.
Some options include:
- A manned gate with personnel who buzz the gate open
- Gate operators with card readers
- Gate operators with numeric keypads
- Motion-activated gate openers
We install automatic gate openers compatible with your gate and offer service and repair as needed.
