Swing Gates vs. Slide Gates

Swing gates require a large area to operate. Swing gates usually open inward (toward the property) unless it is impossible to do otherwise. A single swing gate is sufficient if the opening is 12 feet or less. Double swing gates are recommended for wider openings such as vehicle entrances because they require less room to operate than a single, longer gate.

Slide gates require very little room and are preferred when a construction area has limited space, such as near a roadway, property line, or permanent structure. However, the ground below the slide gate must be level to allow the gate to move freely and operate properly.
