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?
A cantilever gate is one that is suspended off the ground and operates entirely via a track system that is counterbalanced along the fence line. This counterbalance is what provides support for the commercial cantilever gate. Its presence means that the gate is wider than the fence. Because of this track system that is designed along the fence line, at no point does a commercial cantilever gate touch the ground or provide an obstruction for vehicles entering or exiting the business. For this reason, this type of fence is often preferred for industrial, commercial and heavy duty settings. Properly constructed and installed with the appropriate trusses and diagonal bracing, a cantilever gate is designed to withstand wind and other forces of nature.
Benefits of a Cantilever Gate
Due to the following benefits, a commercial cantilever gate is often the preferred choice for a number of industrial and commercial properties. Given a business’s individual circumstances, Apex Fence Company can provide a recommendation for the best commercial security gate. Here are some benefits to keep in mind when considering 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?
Swing gates are based on the principle of a single point swinging mechanism similar to a typical door. There are a wide variety of styles of swing gates such as those that are hung using Bulldog hinges. Swing gates that are designed of decorative metal are hung using block hinges that are welded and have ball bearings. In order to ensure that a commercial swing gate operates smoothly for years, it is outfitted with a grease fitting.
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?
While the first priority of any fencing system for a commercial property is to ensure privacy and security, adding in convenience is an additional amenity that is appreciated by everyone from management to employees. With a commercial roll gate, the automation and smooth rolling features help keep productivity and security high. With its nose riding smoothly along the ground, this type of gate uses a track system to ensure that it operates straight and true each time it is engaged.
Benefits of a Commercial Roll Gate
While swing gates are popular for gaining entrance to a business, a commercial roll gate provides benefits that make them particularly appealing to businesses.

  • 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.

Client Testimonials
  • After speaking with Phil, my wife and I decided to go with a 6-foot privacy fence. Phil took the time to show us different photographs of the privacy fences and help us determine where the gates would be placed. We could not be happier and have already received complements from the neighbors. Prompt, courteous and professional cannot be said enough about this company. I would gladly recommend Apex and Phil to my family, friends, and neighbors.


  • We needed a fence for our new pool. We got three quotes, and Apex not only was the most competitive, but their technician was the most knowledgeable of the three. The job was done on time, finished product is great, and you aren't expected to make the final payment until you approve that the job was done correctly.

  • We had Apex install our new privacy fence and are happy with the result. Eric is great, very professional and responsive. Fence went up in two days and looks very nice. Price was reasonable. Overall, would recommend.


  • Had fence put up two days ago. Love it! Dog ear 6ft privacy fence. The workmanship and materials are high quality and the workers were extremely nice, pleasant, accommodating and efficient. The same can be said about Carl who is the company manager who I originally met with. He even comes out later to check on the work and that you are completely satisfied before final payment is made. I felt very comfortable with the decision to use his company. I know they will stand behind their work. Plus they put the fence up within a day. My next door neighbors used them as well and their fence looks great too. Price was very reasonable. My only regret is not having done it earlier. The bonus is my Houdini escape artist dogs are now finding their hobby impossible to continue.


  • I had been burnt by another contractor and was really leery of even having it done. I went with Apex because they had good reviews and the estimate was fair and reasonable. I'm glad I did. The crew was on time, worked long hours and got my fence done in one day. They were also professional and cleaned up after themselves. The fence turned out great! I requested they come and change out the latches because I didn't like the ones they used (personal preference) and they did so quickly and to my satisfaction. They also worked around my work schedule so I could be there, showing up at 7:30am. Would recommend to my family and friends. Thanks!!


  • Great fence company. Local and hardworking! I am a Realtor and anytime my clients are in need of a fence I always refer them to Brian and Apex Fence. Love him and his beautiful family! -Sheri L.


  • Carl Woods came out to our house to perform the site survey and create their quote. He was very knowledgeable and made several recommendations to improve the look and function of the design I had in my head. He was professional and courteous at all times. The crew did a great job on the installation. In addition, they were both professional and courteous as well.


  • Brian made the quote process very simple for us. He was easily the most knowledgeable contractor and his prices were on a par with all our other quotes. His team was invisible to us, we went to work on Monday morning and returned to find a perfect metal fence that evening, no mess and no call backs or issues. Brian came by on the weekend to make sure everything was to our liking. Highly recommended!


  • My experience with Apex exceeded my expectations from start to finish. I was debating doing the fence myself or contracting to have it done. The representative that came to the house was on time, friendly and offered some great advice based on his experience. The crew arrived when scheduled and knocked out the whole job in one afternoon. Post clean up was well done and I was very satisfied with the quality of workmanship and appearance of the job. All the things you'd expect when you contract out but not so common anymore. First class work at a very reasonable price. Thanks Apex!!


  • Apex Fence Company did an excellent job for us! They were very professional and did an outstanding job. We are very pleased and we’ll refer them to everyone.
