As an alternative to the sliding gate, you can choose the swing gate, which, taking up less space than the sliding gate, is easier to install in any type of home. The size of the door is proportionate to the space available, and therefore there is no restriction as is the case for the sliding gate.

Automatic opening

The swing gate can be made of iron, wrought iron or steel, and depending on the type of material chosen, specific clarifications must be made. The swing gate made of iron or wrought iron has a considerable weight, so if you decide to equip it with an automatic system, the stop must be chosen in relation to the weight of the door itself. The swing gate, made of iron, can also be equipped only with the manual opening, which takes place through a handle, while the closure is made particularly safe by a lock. The gate can also incorporate both systems and allow the customer to use them according to his needs. The automatic system foresees the installation of a motor, which is chosen based on the weight of the leaf that will be operated.

Safety and risks

The safety of the automatic gate is given by the presence of a photocell that immediately blocks the movement of the gate should there be something in front of it that prevents it from having a free field. Where there is a swing gate with automatic opening, in the event of a power failure or failure, the customer can use the manual opening system. The swing gate can be operated directly from inside the house by connecting the gate cable to the intercom. The gate is defined as a hinged door as one leaf beats on the other for closure. In the case of the automatic system the movement is rather slow to prevent the structure of the gate from being damaged. When the swing gate is damaged in the electrical part, it must be used in the version with manual opening and in the meantime activated so that a skilled worker can repair it. Usually breakdowns are quite rare, if used with care.


The swing gate made of iron has two side columns on which the door is supported, which is why the column must necessarily have a greater weight and be perfectly placed inside the hole created specifically for its housing. The column can become a decorative element together with the gate, as it can be made both in a rather simple manner and by reproducing the same motif as the gate. The gate suffers damage only due to a violent impact. If only one door is damaged in the gate, only that part will be replaced.

Customization and decoration

The swing gate made of wrought iron is directly commissioned from a locksmith who will do all the craftsmanship work and this leads to a significant increase in price. Certainly the appearance of this type of gate appears to be remarkably different if compared to that in steel or iron, and it also offers the customer the possibility of having a high customization of this element. The gate is generally left in its natural color but can also be painted according to the color that the customer prefers. The swing gate has a structure that must be integrated perfectly with the rest of the fence and must be chosen according to the specific tastes of the customer as it appears the first element that affects those who visit the house.

Swing gates: Costs

The costs of the swing gate vary depending on the model chosen and the material you prefer to use for the construction. Each swing gate is original, the customer can choose the model that best fits the style of his home also through a catalog on which all the various models will be shown, each of which can be adapted to the size of the space intended for the installation of the gate. Being an element that immediately catches the attention, it is essential to have the correct maintenance of the structure so that it can be preserved in its original state. Specialized dealers often associate the sale of the gate with the sale of the fence so that the customer can refer to a single specific model to create a continuity of style. Today, in most cases, everyone chooses the swing gate solution with automatic opening so that you can have the convenience of opening and closing the gate without getting out of the car every time.
