Gate operators come in two basic flavors: swing-gate operators and slide-gate operators (which run on a track). In many cases swing gates and their operators are cheaper to install. However, there are many factors that may rule out using a swing gate.
Choosing the correct gate and gate operators depends on the terrain:
- Is there enough space to allow the swing gate to open 90 degrees? (roadway, trees, walls, fire hydrants can all restrict.)
- Is there a slope behind the gate?
- Are you trying to keep a pet in?
