Types of Security Gates for Commercial Properties
Commercial Cantilever Gate
When you are in the market for security gate for a business such as a university, warehouse, office building, apartment building or other commercial or industrial setting, your first criteria is its security features. Security gates come in a number of designs of which a commercial cantilever gate is one of them. Contact Apex Fence Company for their recommendations on the best commercial security gate for your property.
What is a Commercial Cantilever Gate?
Benefits of a Cantilever Gate
- Versatile: Cantilever gates are supported on one end as they open and close by moving along the fence line. This eliminates the need for additional lateral space. A commercial cantilever gate is ideal for openings of up to 30 feet wide.
- Easy operation: Due to their lack of a tracking system, and because they don’t need to touch the ground, the operation of a commercial cantilever gate is smooth and free of obstacles or obstructions.
- Ideal for a number of conditions: A commercial cantilever gate is ideal for a number of ground circumstances. Grass, water, gravel, steep inclines, block paving, uneven ground — the list of options that a commercial cantilever gate can work with is vast. Because this gate is suspended off the ground, it provides the ability for installation in circumstances that would present challenges for other types of gates.
Commercial Swing Gates
The type of gate that is chosen for a commercial or industrial property, such as an apartment building, office, university or warehouse, provides a crucial element in the entire functionality of the fence. While erecting a fence around a commercial property is one way of establishing its boundaries, in many more cases doing so is a method of providing security. For that reason, the type of commercial security gate that is chosen is of paramount importance.
What is a Swing Gate?
Benefits of a Commercial Swing Gate
The benefits of choosing an automatic gate for the commercial setting cannot be overstated. Due to the increased focus on productivity given the competitiveness of today’s global economy, stopping to open and close a gate can tack on unwanted minutes to errands and other business duties. In addition, leaving the company vehicle could present a security risk that is not acceptable. A commercial swing gate provides a number of additional benefits for busy commercial settings including the following:
- Quieter: Compared to other types of security gates, such as cantilever gates and roll gates, a commercial swing gate is typically much quieter when it is opening and closing.
- Reduce Maintenance and Repairs: Because commercial swing gates have fewer moving parts than some other types of security gates, there is less of a potential for the daily wear and tear that could lead to a breakdown. In addition, this reduction in moving parts means there is less to maintain in order to ensure that the commercial slide gate is working at its prime. However, because this type of gate relies on a track in order to function, that track must be kept free of debris to ensure the gate’s smooth operation.
- More Visually Pleasing: While security gates have a primary focus of ensuring that the contents inside the fencing are kept safe and secure, this does not mean that they cannot also be pleasing to look at. With their graceful and flowing operation, a commercial swing gate adds an element of poise and sophistication to any commercial property.
Commercial Roll Gates
A commercial roll gate provides an already busy commercial or industrial setting with an easy method of enabling quick entrance and exit to the facility. While any gate is an integral part of a fencing system, a roll gate adds a significant layer of convenience to a commercial business that just cannot be matched by a traditional swing gate. Roll gates can be configured to meet the requirements of different grades to suit the need of your business, factory, school or other commercial property.
What makes Roll Gates more convenient?
Benefits of a Commercial Roll Gate
- A roll gate provides more clearance for vehicles of all sizes to pass through. In some instances, a driver might otherwise misjudge the distance when it comes to a swing gate. Because a roll gate moves all the way to the beginning of the fence line, it provides drivers with a definitive point of reference so they can avoid accidents.
- Swing gates take a great deal of space in order to open fully. With a commercial roll gate, that additional width away from the fence line is not needed. Instead, the fence simply slides along the existing fence line in order to open and close.
Great experience from start to finish! We had Apex replace our privacy and picket fences and install an automatic gate. Bill and Christie are both very friendly and helpful and no one tried to up-sell me into buying what I didn't need or want. Stayed true to all timelines and quotes and worked within my budget. Our new fences and gates are beautiful! Would definitely recommend!
Apex made it easy for me to choose their fence company over others because they actually listened to what I wanted and made it happen quickly. Apex is a no-nonsense, professional business, and I highly recommend their work.
Doing business with them was easy. They took care of everything and managed all the details. I didn't have to look over anything and when I got home it was completed and done better than I had hoped. Their prices are very reasonable and craftsmanship is top notch!
What an amazing fence!! Bill from the Canton location came out the same day to provide an estimate. We made several changes and he came out again with no complaining 🙂 He made the plan fit our needs perfectly. Then, the installation was masterful! We have never seen a crew (thank you Carl!) move so fast and with such precision for our chain link fence! It exceeded our expectations and our neighbors are blown away. Thank you Bill, Carl and crew and Jill!!
I would highly recommend this company. Tom came out to give us our estimate and was knowledgeable and helpful from the start. He answered all of our questions, even ones we hadn't thought of. We had other companies out to give us quotes and they did not seem half as experienced or knowledgeable as Tom. It was an easy decision to go with Apex and we are very happy with the outcome. The guys came out to build and even cleared a lot of the brush and trees from the fence line without hesitation or extra expense. They finished the fence in 2 days and I can't say enough about how wonderful it looks, even better than imagined. It is a fence we can be proud of and I know it will last for many, many years.
Brian was one of four quotes - he was FABULOUS to work with, made sure we found the pins for our property line, came out for follow-ups after to make sure things were good - and they are! We LOVE our new fence and thanks to Brian we actually have more yard than we realized because we had the wrong plat-map! They are GREAT, easy to work with, do exactly what they say they will do and listen to exactly what you need. He made suggestions and went above and beyond to make sure things are great. I highly recommend using APEX Fence for all of your fencing needs.
Thank you Brian and Florencio!!
Our experience with Apex Fence Company and Bill Woodbury was fantastic! Bill was professional, VERY knowledgable, and made the process run smooth from start to finish. His team put up our beautiful ranch rail fence in less than 7 hours and we could not be happier. Best looking fence in the neighborhood! Thank you, Apex Fence Company!
OK, when the neighbors come over and tell you they have "fence envy", you know you chose the right company! Apex gave us exactly what we were looking for and at a good price too. Sure, we could have gone cheaper, but I didn't want a cheap looking fence. The crew made it work for MY schedule which was important since we were on a deadline. Overall we couldn't be happier with the new metal fence. Thanks Apex!
Apex did a front yard picket fence for us. Carl was great, responsive and had really good ideas for the fence that I wouldn't have thought of. The guys who came to install the fence were polite, efficient and did a great job. We've received so many compliments on the fence -- all our friends and the neighbors love it and our dogs love being able to be out in the front yard with us. It couldn't be more perfect and we would recommend Apex to anyone.
We fenced in our pool & got four prices - Apex Fencing had the best price and did an excellent job. Their assistance in helping us pick the right fence and gates was very helpful.
