Two of the most obvious reasons are of course convenience and more importantly, security.

There are a number of different automatic gate installations that one can typically choose from and often if one uses a professional automatic gate installer they will most often design a custom installation for you, specifically related and suited to your individual property needs.  

What Exactly Goes Into Installing An Automatic Gate

There are a number of factors that are involved with the installation of an automatic gate. One of them is determining where exactly the automatic gate is to be placed, form there it is a matter of deciding on exactly what type of automatic gate will be installed.

Automatic gate installations are most often determined by two main factors, the property owner who wants to be able to decide on the most attractive or most expensive or most artistic type of automatic gate that will undoubtedly impress the neighbours and the second factor, what is most practical for the property.

Somewhere in the middle of all of that lies the compromise that will end up working best for all concerned. The way that the automatic gate installer will determine in their opinion what is best will be considerations like the type of driveway on the property and the width of the actual entry way itself. Sometimes a double automatic swinging gate will work best; the properties distance from the road will also help determine if it needs to swing inwardly or outwards. Some automatic gates use rails in order to open and close, another important factor to consider.
