Swing gates are recommended for larger areas. Double swing gates are the best choice for wider openings such as vehicle entrances or when a high volume of people traffic is anticipated, For a pedestrian entrance or when openings are 2 feet or less, a single swing gate is adequate. Swing gates usually are usually set up to open inward toward the property, but may be customized to do otherwise.
Slide gates are a good option when an event area has limited space, such as near a roadway, property line or permanent structure. The area around a slide gate must be level to allow each gate to move freely and parallel to the attached chain link fence for proper operation.
