Push to Open
This means that the gate or gates swing out away from the side the gate openers are mounted on. This application is used primarily on properties that have an incline on the inside of the property, have limited room inside the property for swinging, or that have pre-existing gates mounted on large columns. It is called so because with most gate openers in this application they have their screw drives retracted to in the closed position and then as they extend they "push" your gate open toward the street.
