Swing Gate Openers
Swing gate openers come in two basic styles: Post mount and Pad mount. The post mount style is constructed with a arm that is mounted to the hinge post and to the gate. This opener tends to be smaller and more compact. It is tipically a residential application, installed on smaller, lighter gates, with low to meduim usage. Pad mount openers are installed either on a concrete pad or metal operator stand. They use an articulating arm which works better on larger, heavier gates and in high usage situations. It is not recommended to use a solid wood gate, as wind resistance could pose a problem. It also creates an additional strain on the wood frame.
How to determine the best style gate opener:
- The type of gate – swing or sliding
- The weight of the gate
- The length of the gate
- Frequency of use and traffic through the gate
If an existing gate is already present, it is very important to make sure that it is working efficiently and in the best possible working condition before an electric opener is added. To make sure your gate is ready for an opener, you can check your gate for the following:
- Is it plumb and level?
- Does it swing freely on its hinges?
- Does it slide smoothly on the track or guide rollers?
- Can it move without dragging on the ground?
- Does the gate have a horizontal cross member to provide stability?
