If an aluminum swing gate is the right fit for you, there are a few things to consider. Using swing gates, they will need to be installed so that they open toward the inside of your property, not toward the street. This simple step will alleviate cars from having to possibly back up into the street to avoid being struck by the gate if they should close. Another important factor to consider is that the location of your gate install is mostly level. These gates cannot open up an incline, so be sure that the gate will open downhill.
