Swing Gate Advantages

Low Maintenance

Swing gates require very little maintenance when compared to sliding gates, especially if the swing gate is manually operated. Sliding gates that run on a track require the track to be free from debris to ensure smooth operation; this requires on-going maintenance to ensure the gate is working correctly.

Lower Cost

Swing gates can provide a cost effective solution when compared to sliding gates as the installation process is simpler and swing security gates don’t require the same mechanical configuration of sliding gates, meaning they are cheaper to manufacture. They also require very little maintenance (as mentioned above) so you can keep ‘on-going’ servicing and maintenance costs down to a minimum.

Noise Reduction

The operating noise is kept to a minimum with a swing gate as the gate just needs to swing open and then closed to function. Sliding gates operational noise can be louder when the wheels are running up and down the track. There is also more power required to open an automatic sliding gate when compared to an electric swing gate, so the mechanical noise is also reduced.

    Easier to Install

    Swing security gates are easier to install as they are connected by hinges to the support posts, meaning that there is less groundwork required when compared to sliding gates, which requires a track to be installed for the gate to run along. A shorter installation time can save money but can also reduce the amount of disruption to your premises as the gate is fitted.


      If your premises requires a more custom shape for your gate then a swing security gate is a better choice as there are more options in regards to the style of the gate. Sliding gates have a standard appearance and have to be a certain dimension in order to function properly, whereas swing gates can incorporate more custom shapes like curved edges or diagonals, making the perimeter of your premises more visually appealing.
