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.
I selected APEX from reviews online and I was NOT disappointed. Everything was fantastic. Jill and Tom coordinated the project from start to finish very well. I am very pleased with the finished product. My fence was stained the butternut brown and it is beautiful. Will use them again.
I had a fence installed back in '09 by Carl and his crew. I am happy with the fence and it still looks great. Recently I had a hinge come loose from the gate. I called Carl and he came right out and repaired the hinge. If you are looking for a company that builds great fences and stands by their work, look no further.
Apex just completed my fence install last week. I am very impressed with their workmanship, quality materials and professionalism. I think they are best in town and will work with them again.
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!
We received quotes from 4 companies to refence our large backyard (which took almost 600' of fence) to keep our dogs from escaping (our cattle dog puppy was scaling the existing 4' fence with no problem.) We also had 2 companies who never came or called to cancel their appointment. Although not the lowest quote, Apex certainly provided the best value. Carl was more knowledgeable than several of his competitors and made sure everything was done to meet our expectations. For instance, he recommended using 4"" posts for the new oversized (16' wide) Montage iron drive gate while the lowest bidder specified 2"" posts on his proposal. Alberto and the installation crew were polite and worked quite hard to meet their schedule despite rain. Carl further demonstrated great customer service by coming out on a Sunday to personally correct a few minor installation concerns. In summation, our new 6' tall Ranch Rail fence and 5' tall Montage Iron fence look terrific and we finally have no concerns about our dogs getting out. Thanks Carl and Apex for a great job at a very reasonable price! We're glad we chose Apex.
We found Apex online along with several other fencing companies. Apex was the most competitively priced and they delivered all they promised. Would highly recommend them!
I got three estimates for a privacy fence for our home yard. They were all very close in price. Brian of Apex was the only one who discussed our options related to excessive brush in our backyard and was the only one who offered to remove the brush and thus put our fence on our back property line. He also squeezed our job in within the week so that we had a fenced yard for our new dog. The fence appears to be of good quality and the installation was done in a timely and sturdy manner. Brian inspected the job after its completion, this something that I have found other contractors to neglect and I appreciated Brian's personable manner and willingness to address my numerous questions about fencing. I can't imagine anyone having a bad experience using this company.
Bill Woodbury was awesome to work with! Love our new fence and the quality is wonderful. Christi in the office was also very helpful and great to work with. Excellent company and great overall experience!
I can't say enough things about Eric and George. Eric came out and gave us a great bid, we decided to use Apex fence over the others that gave us bids. Boy are we glad we did. We were in the middle of having our backyard hardscaped and were to the point to get the fence replaced. Due to all the construction that was going on, the area had changed since Eric gave us the bid. George the foreman met Eric at out house and work began almost immediately. They completed the job in 1 day, it came it right on the estimate and they didn't even seem to minds that the area had changed so much. Would recommend anyone looking for a great fence at a great price to call Eric at Apex Fence Company!
Apex did a great job! They were fast and the decorative fence looks great. The workers were very nice and didn't leave any mess. Brian was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!
