An elegant addition to any home entry, an entrance gate can be made convenient and secure with the right operator. Businesses can also benefit from entrance gates, though commercial and heavy-traffic gates require specialized operators. Your commercial and residential garage door dealer can help you find the right gate operator for your needs. Your options will depend upon the style of your gated entry, the clearance around the area, and how much use you expect your entrance to see.
Slide and Swing Operators
Slide and swing gate operators are appropriate for most operations, as they provide reliable functioning. As their names suggest, these operators are ideal for gates that slide back along a wall or swing inwards or outwards. Sliding gate operators are commonly used on both residential and commercial properties and use powerful motors that efficiently deliver energy to the system, providing years of heavy-duty performance. Swing gate operators are designed to be used in areas with less space, making them ideal for residential entries.
For areas with high traffic, a barrier is an ideal solution for controlled entry. The operators for these systems are designed to handle frequent use. Repetitive operation requires a durable power supply that can deliver a steady and regulated amount of power. Barrier operators use intelligent controls that can prevent multiple vehicles from passing through at one time.
High-Cycle Overhead Operators
High-cycle overhead operators can be used as an alternative to traditional swing operators. They are ideal for multi-family residences that see higher traffic than a typical dwelling and are exceptionally quiet during operation.
