Sliding gates usually have a single door, which runs on a track with a ratchet. They require a long and narrow space for the gate to slide along during the opening and closing phases. This type of gate is the ideal protection for wide entrances, entrances placed uphill or wherever the space inside the property is not sufficient to enable the opening of swing gates.
Swing gates open with a rotation around a fulcrum, just like an ordinary door. When the gate's doors open, they usually turn inward thus requiring specific internal space. The automations are usually powered by the 230V supply and 24Vdc, which, thanks to the low voltage alimentation, guarantees a safer functioning.
