What to Consider When Choosing Automatic or Electronic Gate Openers

11/04/2013 Back To Blog

While the traditional manually-operated gates of yesterday are still widely used today, there is an increase in the numbers of homeowners who are switching to high-tech and stylish automatic residential gate openers. Electronic aluminum or steel gates can truly add a touch of class and style to homes and establishments, and they enhance security too because the home or business owner can remain inside the vehicle, as it opens and shuts.

If you are opting to install an automatic or electronic enclosure in your home or business establishment, here's what to consider before you actually buy and install one.

Choose Your Preferred Gate Remote Program or System

Because electronic systems are quite expensive today, you would certainly like to ensure that you buy one that's truly worth the investment. While plastic gates may look like a juicy choice because they cost less, they may not last as long as steel or aluminum automated gates. Remember that plastic often tends to break off easily and decay too. In cooler climates, plastic gates also become more brittle. In wet climates, however, an untreated and unprotected metal or steel gate may easily rust and get worn-out.

Choose the Automated Mechanism or Operator Package

The next step would be to determine your preferred electronic or automated operating mechanism or operator package. Would you prefer the swing type with multicode remote, or would you be satisfied with linear operator swing gates that swing inward or outward? Some electronic types also have underground systems, which slides it out of the way and allow you to hide the control for the mechanism and system. Also determine if the electronic gate's operator mechanisms or boxes are not bulky and make it look like the average ones.    

When shopping around for electronic gates, gates Thousand Oaks experts also stress that homeowners should also carefully consider the automated mounting system because certain electronic operator packages may work much better with other types of mounting systems. For example, with the electronic system you bought, you may still need to install tracks for the sliding-system's wheels  while an underground operator system may still need digging and some landscaping.
