Swing gates are hinged on one side and swing open and closed like a door. Swing gates typically travel a 90 degree arc between their open and closed positions. Swing gates can consist of a single leaf or double leafs and can be in-swinging or out-swinging.
Swing gates are most commonly used in residential applications because of their low cost and ease of installation. Because swing gates travel over a large arc, space must be available to allow vehicles approaching the gate to remain clear while the gate opens or closes. The swinging arc of the gate also requires additional safety considerations to prevent people or vehicles from being hit or trapped by the moving gate.
Swing gates are a smart option for homes and commercial and industrial properties where sliding gates may not be suitable. Like the sliding version, these may also be made from materials like stainless steel, aluminium, duragal and timber infill panels. Swing gate drive systems may include manual release in case of power failure, drive motors, safety devices connected to the gate operator and programmable logic control boards.
