Swing Gates


The majority of powered swing gates are worm drive operated. This means a trolley within the arm is driven to pull the gates open and push them closed. The effectiveness of this is governed by the accuracy of the angle at which the gate arms are installed.

Powered Hinged Gates, or Swing Gates as they are also known, are designed to provide automated access within a fence line (for example, where the runback required for a sliding gate is not available). Powered Hinged/Swing Gates are automated using a variety of different actuator types including underground (these may prove more robust with a higher load capacity, but require more planning and groundwork) or above-ground solutions that utilise electro-mechanical or hydraulic drive equipment. The positioning and setup of these drives is critical to ensuring correct and safe operation of the gate(s). When specified and installed correctly to suit the size and weight of gate and the number of operations required this should ensure ongoing reliability in operation.
