Which Gate Material Is Best for Swing Gates?

Wooden Swing Gates

Wooden gates are highly sturdy and robust; they also provide an incredible aesthetic appeal that numerous customers find unbeatable. Well-maintenance wooden swing gates will be more long-lasting and hard-wearing. However, they have a few notable disadvantages regarding gate automation, starting with their weight.

They are cumbersome, especially during wet or harsh weather, because they absorb plenty of water. The motor of any wooden swing gate must be robust enough to move them without any manual help.

Another factor that many consider a disadvantage is the level of maintenance needed. Frequent varnishing and staining are excellent for upkeep; however, over time, the coating of the surface will eventually flake away or blister. Such pitfalls can mean that water will get into your wood and cause the structure of your gates to rot and crack slowly. 

Iron Swing Gates

Wrought iron gates are a stunning choice for those searching for metal automated gates. Built by skilled craftspeople, its designs can be highly detailed and ornate.

The same challenges you may face with wooden gates are also present with wrought iron gates. They require regular maintenance and cleaning to ensure they look up to standard.

Iron driveway gates are weighty and are powered by intense motors that enable operators to use them efficiently and safely. 

Iron Swing Gates

Aluminium Swing Gates

Aluminium is an increasingly popular choice for those searching for brand-new electric gate installations. It's arguably the best material for any automated gates because it's incredibly durable and lightweight enough to move if you need to do so manually. Its fittings and motor experience less wear and tear than iron or wood gates, making it cheaper.

The advances in the design and manufacture of aluminium gates mean they are available in a wide range of finishes and styles, allowing them to mimic their alternatives. For example, the wood effect enables it to look like wooden gates, like a rot-free substitute. 

Swing VS Sliding Electric Gate Installation?

Choosing between sliding or swing gates will often depend on the amount of space you have available outside your property or home and the overall layout of your driveway. Those with more narrow driveways may prefer swing gates; however, they will at least require enough space to swing about and let yourself and your car through safely.

Swing gates are also far quieter, making them perfect for neighbourhood watch areas and those who work late and don't want to disturb the community when entering and exiting their homes. You want to ensure your gates don't swing out onto public areas and into the main pavements. 

They are affected by strong winds, so if you live in exposed local areas that are often affected by the harsh UK winds and weather, they may not be the safest option. Swing gates can be a great difficulty for those with upwards sloping driveways. When opening, you don't want to fear that gravity will cause them to swing the other way.

Sliding gates do not open onto driveways, so you never have to worry that there isn't sufficient free space for gates to swing onto, as they will easily slide outwards. The most significant factor of the sliding gate is that properties require space to run into that is, ultimately, far longer than the overall gate. It must be to one side of any posts or gate pillars and be directly in line with your driveway entrance.
