For ease of access customers with driveway gates often need an automatic opener. We can install openers that run electrically or that run from solar power. With the popularity of anything solar today, there is often a heavy up front expense to installing solar powered devices. Thankfully this is not true with your driveway gate. We install openers with a 7 watt solar panel which can be doubled for 14 watt power.

Electric opening gates require a conduit be run from the gate motor to the houses electrical panel and is where the added cost comes in to play. Gates come in many different designs and opening options including single out swing, single in swing, double in/out swing and sliding.

Automatic openers can be used on any of our gate materials including wood, iron, chain link and vinyl.
