Is a Swing Gate Right For You?

Swing gates hinge open to allow vehicle access. They can swing either inwards or outwards and extend 90 degrees when fully open. However, in most cases, your driveway swing gate must open inwards. A driveway gate on private property is prohibited from opening outwards onto a road, path, sidewalk, or highway. If you live in a rural area or sprawling property, you may have enough room for your gate to swing outwards without blocking roads or sidewalks.

Single and Double Swing Gates

Single swing gates can accommodate openings up to 16 feet wide. However, you can also opt for a double swing gate, which comprises two gates with hinges on both sides of the opening. Both gates swing open simultaneously and are ideal for large openings up to 32 feet wide.

Swinging gates are generally more affordable than sliding gates because they have few moving parts. This means they’re less likely to break down, saving you money on future repair costs. In addition, swing gates are quieter than slide gates when opening and closing.

Swing gates are well-suited to sloped driveways because you can adjust the bottom clearance. They’re also great if you live in an area with heavy snowfall because you don’t have to worry about the bottom tracks becoming clogged with snow, ice, and debris.

Swinging Gate Materials

At Creative Door Services™, we carry swinging driveway gates in wood, metal, and glass.

  • Wood gates offer a rich, natural appearance that complements classic architectural styles. In contrast, glass gate inserts and panes are ideal for ultramodern properties.

  • Metal gates are easy to maintain and come in aluminum, steel, or wrought iron. Steel gates are incredibly durable and impact-resistant, and aluminum gates are lightweight, malleable, and rustproof.

  • Wrought iron gates offer a classic look and can be shaped into various beautiful and intricate designs.
