Your driveway gate must be beautiful and functional, matching the architecture of your home. You can choose from a wide variety of styles – from formal gates with intricate metal work and curved top to informal gates with flat tops and rather simple designs. In terms of functionality, there are single-swing gates, bi-parting swing gates or sliding gates. If your space is limited, a sliding driveway gate is a more realistic option than a swing gate. Additionally, you can opt for an intercom system or security cameras on either of these gates, to enhance their functionality.
Driveway gates are made of metal, which provides a classic look, visibility and is very durable, or wood, which looks rather rustic, provides privacy and requires extensive maintenance to reach its maximum potential. Manual or automatic gates can be made from both of these materials.
In terms of construction, driveway gates can be prefabricated (available in many designs and finishes) or custom (you can order a gate made according to the exact dimensions you need). Driveway gates can also have attachments, such as column or posts.
An automatic opening mechanism of a driveway gate may include remote entry, keypad entry, telephone entry and sensors.
