Automatic gate operators are devices used for automating gate opening and closing operations. In the world of home security, installing an automatic gate opener is paramount. Be that as it may, automatic gates have improved neighborhood security. As experienced electric gate installers, we have simplified gate automation such that gate operators can easily be fitted on an existing gate without much fabrication. We offer different models for gate automation including centurion gate systems in Kenya as well as Proteco.
Clients do not need to pay for a top-down overhaul of the existing gate system. In the world of gate automation we have only two types of gate systems; swing gates and sliding gates. Both gate types come with an efficient remote gate opener solution. The automatic sliding gates tend to be cheaper to install. Because the sliding gate system only requires a single operator to function. On the other hand, swinging gates require two operators to be installed on both sides. The installation with two operators’ requirements increases the cost of gate automation.
Briefly, we look at the differences between the two gate systems. To start with, a sliding gate saves on space requirements. Sliding gates only require a small space to slide through. In fact, the thin space available along the fenced area is sufficient enough for the gate operation.
Both gate designs can be programmed to allow the use of a wireless transmitter to facilitate gate opening and closing functions.

As experienced electric get installers, we realized that sliding gates are generally easy to maintain. Sliding gates operate on a rail track which only requires greasing once in a while. However, swing gates use hinges on both ends which wear off very fast due to frequent opening and closing operations. Moreover, the swing gate has two gate operator motors which automatically double the cost of maintenance. On the other side, a sliding gate system only has one sliding gate operator.

In terms of security, sliding gates are comparatively safer than swing gates. For instance, an intruder can use force to just open a swing gate even when the gate operator is on close mode. However, for the sliding gate, you cannot force it to open because the termination points are usually hidden from view when it is firmly closed.
The efficient functioning of an automated gate system can be affected by weather conditions such as strong winds and storms. The effect of strong winds is even worse on a swing gate. The wind applies pressure on the swing gate, especially during the gate opening operation. As a result, you will be forced to replace the gate hinges every now and again. This situation does not apply to sliding gate automation. Sliding gates are the best choice for home automation.
