When discussing swing gates, the fencing and gate industry are usually referring to larger commercial metal gates that swing to open or close. It's a common misconception that swing gates are industrial steel gates, as it can also mean smaller timber gates that, as the name suggests, swing open or closed, and these smaller swing gates are usually manually operated.
Whether they are metal or wooden swing gates, automated operation should be considered for ease of opening, convenience and increased security, especially if the gates are large and heavy.
Jacksons manufacture many styles of single or double leaf Swing Gates, manufactured from metal or wood, suitable for all purposes from timber clad gates to increase privacy in residential situations, to bespoke steel swing gates for high security applications.
Some of our swing gates can be seen in the list below and more information can be found on the gate by clicking on the images.
Swing gates may not always be the best option when installing a gate. A good example of this is if space is at a premium, not allowing enough clearance for it to swing open, or if the bottom of the gate catches the ground if the gate is installed on a slope. If this is the case then a sliding gate could be a better option.
