Gate designs for driveway gates

Swing Gate Designs

If you have the space for gates to swing open into your driveway with hitting anything, maybe swing gates are for you. Swing gate designs usually include two, equal-sized gates that meet in the middle when closed. They then swing open into the driveway to a minimum of 90 degrees.

But not always.

Alternative swing gate designs include bi-fold swing gates and single swing gates. You can also have gates that open to a wider angle than 90 degrees.

Swing gates can be wooden or iron. For greater longevity, aluminium gates look like wooden gates but don’t rot.

Swing gates can be designed to have lots of gaps (open boarded) or can have no gaps at all (close boarded).

An obvious part of gate designs is the top of gate. Some are curved, some slope and some are flat and horizontal.

Then, there’s the colour. If you go for wooden gates or aluminium gates that look like wood, you have another design choice. Do you go for a more traditional gate designs and keep the wood grain finish? Or, do you try something more modern and have a solid colour applied to your swing gates?

The following gallery includes a variety of swing gate designs.

Sliding Gate Designs

Sliding gates are designed to slide along a track across the driveway entrance. They slide off to one side until they clear the driveway completely.

Variations of sliding gate designs include a sliding gate that looks like twin swing gates. You can have sliding gates made of two, three or more panels that concertina as they open and slide against each. These telescopic sliding gates are designed for use where space is limited.

Pedestrian Gates

Pedestrian gates are designed to compliment electric driveway gates.

A pedestrian gates can be manual or electric and they’re much smaller than driveway gates.

They only have to be wide enough for you to get through on foot. Including a pedestrian gate in the design of your driveway gate system gives you the ability to leave or enter on foot without having to open your electric gates.
