There are numerous reasons you may want slide gates over swing gates. However, one of the most fundamental reasons to opt for a slide gate is if you’re short on opening space. For example, if your current driveway doesn’t offer the appropriate angle for entryway gates to swing open entirely, you need a sliding gate.
Another reason homeowners and business owners choose sliding gates is that their property is located on a steep slope. Unfortunately, swing gates don’t always work well when there is a steep slope because the angle may threaten those entering and exiting the driveway.
In each of these situations, it’s best to equip the driveway with a sliding gate. However, you should note that you don’t need either of these situations to pursue a sliding gate.
