Swing Gates

Swing Gates in Calgary and Area

Agricultural Fencing in CalgaryAs the saying goes, you don’t have a second chance to make a first impression. That’s certainly true when it comes to the entrance of your home or business. One way to make a standout impression – and more importantly, your property more secure – is with a swing gate. Relia-Built Fencing’s team of experts is ready to install a durable swing gate that complements your property’s appearance, adds to its privacy and enhances security.

What Are Swing Gates?

Many people in the Calgary area choose swing gates because they are both welcoming and add a level of sophistication to their property’s entrance. As someone enters your driveway, the doors of a hinged swing gate open efficiently and gracefully to invite them in. Swing gates can beautifully frame the entrance of any building but are an especially pleasing complement to Victorian, Colonial, Tudor and other classic styles.

Why Should You Consider a Swing Gate?

Swing gates have many attractive qualities, which is why they are a popular choice among property owners.

  • Curb Appeal

The warmth and welcome of a swing gate can bring additional beauty to your home and even your neighbourhood.

A quality, properly installed swing gate can also add value to your property and be a plus for buyers if you decide to put your house on the market.

  • Security on Many Levels

Safety is at the top of every property owner’s list.

A swing gate deters unwanted visitors and helps keep those precious to us – children and pets – on the property.

With the technology available today, swing gate property owners can track who is on their premises, and with a smartphone, they can open and close the gate remotely.

Another safety advantage: With a card swipe or push of a key button, an owner can stay securely in his or her vehicle when entering or leaving the property – no need to get out and open and close the gate!

  • Low Maintenance, Budget-Friendly

Swing gates are quiet as a whisper if you keep the hinges oiled. In comparison, a standard slide gate, which operates with pulleys and chains, can be quite noisy. That’s not only annoying for the property owner but for the neighbours, too. Swing gates also have an edge in the maintenance area. In addition to oiling the hinges, all swing gates typically need is an occasional service check on the gate opener. There are no leaves and other debris to remove, as there are with a slide gate’s treads. However, as any Calgarian knows, keeping on top of driveway snow removal, gate or no gate, is always a challenge. Swing gates can be easier on the wallet than other kinds of gates because of their simpler design and fewer components.

What to Consider When Selecting a Swing Gate

It can be difficult to decide which swing gate to purchase, especially with so many options. That’s why when you’re contemplating such an important investment, it’s wise to turn to the trusted, experienced team at Relia-Built Fencing. Your representative will provide information to help you narrow down your choices, such as:

  • The best fencing material for your use
  • The direction the gate opens – out toward the road (the most common) or inward toward your property.
  • The span of the gate’s swing
  • The gate’s elevation, weight and overall size
  • The amount of maintenance needed to maintain the swing gate over time
  • Budget
  • Future home value

Clearly, choosing a swing fence is more involved than selecting paint or making other home improvement decisions. Safety, function and maintenance all factor into this decision – and aesthetics, too, for your property value. It’s reassuring that with what’s likely a once-in-a-home’s lifetime decision for you, there are experienced swing gate experts at Relia-Built Fencing.

There are many different swing gates available

  • Style

    Swing gates can be simple or ornate, rustic or refined. There are many designs from which to choose. They can be made from cast or wrought iron, lighter-weight aluminum, composite materials, wood or sturdy steel. Whichever material you choose, today’s modern swing gates are durably made to last for many years.

  • Single or Double-sided

    Swing gates can have one main piece (a single leaf) that opens from the right or the left side. In residential use, however, it’s more common to install gates that are double-sided and open from the center out.

  • The Gate Opener

    • Linear Articulator – This budget-friendly option is typically used on smaller gates. Because it doesn’t have an armpiece, liner gate openers typically are compact and use less space.
    • Articulated Arm Swing Gate Operator – Known for durability and efficiency, this device features an arm piece. Its design places less strain on hinges and brackets.
    • Underground Swing Operator – This opener is installed and operates completely underground, which is more aesthetically pleasing to many people. All that’s visible is the gate. However, it can be more costly to maintain an underground swing operator than the other types.

Clearly, choosing a swing fence is more involved than selecting paint or making other home improvement decisions. Safety, function and maintenance all factor into this decision – and aesthetics, too, for your property value. It’s reassuring that with what’s likely a once-in-a-home’s lifetime decision for you, there are experienced swing gate experts at Relia-Built Fencing.
