The different types of Wooden Electric Gates

If you are thinking of getting some electric wooden gates for your property and aren't quite sure what options you have then we are here to help.

There are many things to think about when you are considering which gates will work on your property. So weighing up all of your options in the beginning gives you a great head start.

The first thing to decide is which type of wood to use for your automated wooden gates. This wood can be softwood or hardwood.

The choice is really yours to make but some things to consider are that softwood will need a little bit more looking after than hardwood. Hardwood is also going to last longer than softwood too although softwood is a cheaper material to work with.

Another thing to consider is how your electric wooden gates will open. There is sliding and swing gates and how yours will work is normally dictated by the space that you have. If you have a large driveway then swing gates are perfect. If you have a narrower driveway with space along the side then a sliding gate will be the better option.

When you choose a company like us you will have the option to choose what design that you would like on your automated wooden gates to have. This design can be a modern style or traditional, it is completely up to you. You can work with our design team to make sure that they are perfectly suited to you, your family and your property.

There are a lot of things to consider when choosing the right gates for your property. Hopefully the information above gives you a place to start your research from.
