Gate Installation Process

The technique used to install the gate around your home or business properly depends heavily on the type of gate you choose and how it opens. A swing or bi-folding gate will be installed with hinges, but a slide system will likely need a track installed level with your driveway. 

However, installation for most gates follows this process:

Preparation is critical to mark nearby utility lines, so they don’t get damaged during installation. We don’t want to cause any damage to your property or building that will cause it to be out of service. We can provide alternative solutions or areas for your gates if utility systems are underneath.

Depending on your concrete and gate size, we’ll set the posts the correct distance apart to ensure they’re level. They may need to set overnight, allowing us to finish the job the following day.

For whatever gate type you choose, we’ll mount the system. This may include hinges, a track, or electrical to lift the gate. Shortly after the system is installed, we’ll connect the gate.

Wiring the access control system allows you to customize your preferred functions, including a keypad, sensor, intercom, and opener. Finally, we’ll test your system to ensure that the gate opens and closes correctly and that all technology works as expected. Before we leave, we’ll answer any questions you may have about our expert gate installations in Oakland so you can get the most out of your design.

Types of Gates

You may be interested in cast iron or wood designs for your gate, but its functionality is also a crucial customizable decision. 

Here are a few types of gates to choose from:

  • Slide gate: The slide or rolling gate is typically used for commercial facilities that need security. The track is often installed in the ground with roller wheels that move across the track.
  • Swing gate: This system works more like a door, allowing the gate to swing inside and out. This choice can be automated but will need marked stop lines, so the gate doesn’t hit a car.
  • Lift gates: These can be designed to move vertically or pivot rather than sliding sideways or moving outward. This is one of the most compact designs to use space effectively.
