Enter With Style - Automatic Gate Operators

Having manual gates over your driveway can be a hassle. Pull up, park, get out, unlock the gates, open the gates, get back in the car, pull up 10 feet, get back out of your car, close the gates, lock the gates, and THEN get to where you are going. You want the security of full perimeter fencing without the inconvenience? Let's look into automatic gate operators.


Whether you are looking for an residential estate gate for your driveway or a commercial property gate, we have the operator to meet your needs. There are so many different types of gates you can have installed to meet your style and functional needs. You can learn more at our blog on gates here. In this edition of "The Fencing Post," we will look at the operator options for each style of gate.

The most popular residential operator is the LA500. It is constructed of an actuator arm (or arms for double gates) that attaches to mounting plates that are welded or bolted on the gate post and the gate frame. The operator itself consists of a box that is mounted to posts or your fence and is installed next to the gate. It is rated for gates that are up to 18' long or up to 1600 lbs.

There are a wide array of access controls for the operator, including remote control, wireless keypad, internet gateway (app access control), and an inground loop detector. The operator has a soft start and stop feature, which extends the operator and hardware life no matter how often it is used. The LA500 comes with a 2-year factory warranty and a 1-year labor warranty.
