Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/05/2017 -- Electric gates in Austin, Texas can be used for residential and commercial properties. They come in a variety of styles that include slide, cantilever, swing, vertical lift, vertical pivot lift, bi-folding, and barrier arm gates. Each of these types open a different way, allowing traffic to flow through the entrance. Automatic gates are used to control what vehicles are allowed into an area that has been secured.

Companies that use automatic gates secure their premises and parking to control the flow of traffic inside their location. Some corporations use automatic gates to allow employees to enter a specific parking area, while visitors park in a different location.

Residences use automatic gates in Austin, Texas to secure their property entrance in and out of the premises. Homeowners may want to use gates to keep kids and pets from straying outside of the property lines. They also use the entry gates to keep strangers from entering the property.

Tips to Select Automatic Gates

1. The traditional entry gate style is a horizontal rolling gate. These automatic slide gates are the most typical to use for commercial businesses and residences. The gate moves parallel to the fencing, horizontally. It is usually supported by rollers under the gate and slides along a track of metal.

2. Ornamental iron is one of the traditional gate styles that states class and security. Wrought iron is created from pre-galvanized steel. This gate style is powder coated to provide a rust-free, maintenance-free quality product. The finish lasts longer in outside elements.

3. Wood used as material for entry gates are a beautiful statement for commercial or residential properties. We use cedar plank for many automatic gate styles. We've also used bamboo to set property styles apart, while providing security and style.

4. Electronic entry. Having controlled access to the entry gates allows them to open and close through push-button clickers, or other remote access. A tele-entry gate controls access through mobile or land-line phones. Gates can also use solar power to operate.

Electric gates can also come with different accessories that include card and tag readers, digital keypads, intercom systems, video surveillance systems, automatic exit devices, and emergency access devices. Each of these items are used for commercial businesses that need more secure access to their premises. This makes it harder to open and close the gate.

5. The fencing material can be wood, ornamental wrought iron, bamboo, or made from other materials.

Choosing the right automatic gates involves a blend of modern technology and security. They make it easy and secure for entry and exit of the location.
