People that decide to install a fence typically don’t think about the gate assembly until the installer brings it to their attention. Automatic gates are one of the most popular choices available. An automatic gate means no one has to leave their vehicle during inclement weather, one of the most often cited advantages.

Automatic gates are equally beneficial for homes and businesses. No matter where they’re installed, automatic gates provide a higher level of security that enables individuals to control the flow of traffic and people that have access to the premises.


As the name indicates, the gates typically swing inward, but can also be designed to swing outward, when individuals enter or exit. They’re the style most often installed for residential applications. The ground must be level for the gates to work efficiently, but homeowners prefer them due to their ease of installation, affordability, and simple mechanical design. They utilize an underground or pillar-style mount.


Sliding gates are a favorite at a variety of business locations. However, they can also be installed in residential neighborhoods where there isn’t enough available space for a swinging gate. They’re sometimes referred to as rolling gates or V-track gates as tracks and/or rollers will need to be installed on the ground to facility functionality. They’re able to work on slopes and can even be installed on an angle to accommodate land features or create a unique look.

Vertical Lift

These aren’t the most attractive appearing gates, but they do have multiple applications. They’re an alternative to other automatic gates in residential areas where homeowners don’t have enough room for a swing or slide gate to be installed. Vertical lift gates require a tower to be installed on either side of the entrance to facilitate movement. The height of the vehicles that will enter is a serious consideration, as the vehicle must be able to fit underneath it to pass through.

The South Florida soil composition can create difficulties when installing a fence. Specific rules are in place to mitigate problems and ensure they’re anchored properly. The professionals are cognizant of all those specifications.
