Automation is a breeze with the highly recommended Estate Swing line of gate automation. There are solar options in the E-S 1000H and E-S allegiant and non-solar 24VDC options in the E-S 500 and E-S 1600. In addition there are specialty operators such as the E-S 1100 for smaller gates and little clearance room for mounting. And the E-SC 1600 for column mounting. Our staff is more than happy to assist you in picking out the correct gate opener for your particular installation.
Non-automated Gate Hardware:
If you are not planning on automating your gate or automating it in the future but not immediately we have some great accessories for consideration. Available are inside/outside key locked handle latches, key locked drop rods, and alternate self closing hinges so you can push your gate open and it will remain open while past 90 degrees. Once the gate is nudged toward the closed position the hinges will take it the rest of the way. Another direction to go if automating in the future is the electric pedestrian gate lock kit. This can be set up to release the lock via keypad, intercom, push button or any other device. Once the lock is released the gate can be pushed open. What is great about this scenario is all the products from the pedestrian gate lock kit can be used in conjunction with the gate opener in the future.

The hinge plates have the barrels already welded to a plate for easy mounting to an existing post or column.
