Interested in installing electric gates at your Kirkcaldy property? Not sure you have enough room...?

We have the answer!

Outdoor space or room on the driveway is not something that all residences are blessed with. And yet, the installation of electric gates at a Kirkcaldy property is still a possibility... and the answer lay in how the gates open and close.

The swing opening and closing

This is the traditional style of opening and closing. In many gates that are not powered, this is how they are usually installed.

The overall gate consists of two gates, usually equal in size and meet in the middle of the driveway opening, in which they sit. Elegant in the sweeping open and close motion, these gates are brilliant… IF you have the space for them to operate.

The width of each gate will be the arc of space that they need as they sweep open and closed; thus is a gate is 6 feet wide, it will need an arc of 6 feet minimum, in which it can operate.

For some smaller driveways this is simply not an option. For example, you will be investing in electric gates at a Kirkcaldy property for all kinds of reasons, including security; if you cannot close your gates because the car is on the drive, then the benefit of any additional security is somewhat lost.

The sliding opening and closing

There is a solution and, if you have the length in your driveway then sliding electric gates at your Kirkcaldy home is the answer.

This style of electric gate has one large gate that opens and closes along a runner that follows the length of a wall or fence line, on the inside of your property.

This means that the gate can slide open, leaving the full entrance of the driveway open and any vehicles can be safely parked, without interrupting the closing and opening mechanism of the gate.

Any material?

The great news is that both of these styles of opening can be applied to any material too; many people opt for iron gates at they give some aspects of privacy but without completing blocking the view of the end of the driveway from the house.


Electric gates at Kirkcaldy properties should always be installed by a professional company so that the various safety regulations for the safe use of these powered gates can be met. Failing to install gates that meet these standards could result in someone being seriously hurt or killed, something that has sadly been seen in the past.

Electric gates at any Kirkcaldy home or business no doubt bring convenience and security to that property; which opening and closing mechanism will you opt for?
