From the innovative brand Estate Swing known for its dependable gate automation comes the new eye catching and affordable Estate Swing Driveway Gate Collection. With an elegant sweeping arc and clean lines this dual 16 foot long gate is functional both in its appearance and in regard to automation. The design incorporates classic artistry, sturdy wrought aluminum alloy and a smooth powder coated finish. Unlike other driveway gates where automation is a secondary thought, Estate Swing recognized the need for operator placement from the start; therefore customer automation preferences were considered beforehand which ultimately prevents awkward looking and structurally unsound flat bars from being added later on. See “gate construction” below for more details on how other gate companies fail to create much needed automation support.
By using 6061-T6 wrought aluminum ¾ inch pickets and a full 2 inch square frame members we create a tough and durable gate that is stronger lighter and is almost twice as resistant to denting or bending than steel, which in turn, is safer for people and objects as well as extends the operator life since it puts less strain on the gears. As gate automation professionals, Estate Swing sought to anticipate the needs of consumers and incorporate those details when designing this dynamic driveway gate. It’s easy to drill, easy to lift, easy to automate which keeps both the DIY installation effort and cost down significantly.
One other unique factor about our Estate Swing Driveway Gate Collection is that they are made in the U.S. by skilled welders which follow the American Welding Society's Standards. Keeping the manufacturing local allows for efficient quality review and substantially quicker shipping time compared to overseas outsourcing.
With all of these features and benefits another company would charge a much higher price, but because GateCrafters.com has a special relationship with Estate Swing, we've decided to pass the savings on to you! From our loyal GateCrafters customers we've heard the request for affordable security. Never before has such a well designed driveway gate been so accessible and so affordably priced.

As mentioned above the construction of the Estate Swing Driveway Gate compared to other brands is no subtle difference because automation concerns were implemented during its
design process. Only as an afterthought will other gate manufactures add on narrow, structurally unsound flat bars to attach the operator - which negatively affects the gates overall
structural integrity. Either the bars become loose which puts uneven pressure on the opener as it retracts (scraping the paint and striping away at the core metal). Or if it does stay in place,
that plate is bolted to only 2 or 3 pickets leaving those few narrow pickets to uphold the weight, movement and pressure of the opener. Meanwhile, Estate Swing Driveway Gates are
supported by the full frame and entire collection of thicker than average pickets. It is clear that many customers seek to automate their gate, so Estate Swing Driveway Gates were
designed to achieve this purpose not as an afterthought but as a main feature of its design.
Estate Swing Driveway Gates are made with 6061-T6 wrought aluminum alloy and then powder coated for a protective seal and uniform color. The 6061-T6 wrought aluminum is a high-grade alloy with a yield strength of about 40,000 pounds per square inch*. For comparison, this is much stronger than “mild steel” which has a yield strength at about 20,000 to
30,000 pounds per square inch. Furthermore aluminum will not rust. 6061-T6 wrought aluminum is used for the purpose of durability and resiliency, providing a quality dent resistance and
lasting beauty. Compare Aluminum vs. Steel Gates Here
Powder coating is the process by which powdered pigment is applied to and cured on a surface. It consists of a mechanical and/or chemical treatment of the surface to remove
impurities and contaminants followed by the application of the pigments. Then the material is cured at high temperatures which makes the pigments flow together and react chemically to
form the coating. Powder coating is preferred for certain surfaces because it creates or contains close to no volatile organic compounds and does not sag or run with thicker coats. The
overspray can also be recycled so there is little waste, making it less expensive and creating less hazardous waste. Our Estate Swing Driveway Gates are powder coated to provide the
most uniform appearance possible.
