We welcome your input and imagination to help us craft the perfect solution for you.

Types of Driveway Gate Operators

Sliding Gate Operators

Automatic driveway gate openers provide security, curb appeal, and opening via remote control, keypad , and smart home connected apps. A residential slide operator is ideal if the area they open into is limited (landscaping, etc.) or is used for parking vehicles, especially when you have an uphill slope.

Slide gate openers and motors come in different styles with different features. Depending on the size of your gate, its weight, and the level of traffic using the gate will determine your best option.

Slide gate operators are ideal when you have limited space for the gate to run directly along the fence or wall where it’s positioned. Sliding automatic gate systems have unique parts that work together to make sure your automatic driveway gate functions properly all day, every day.

And, we are trained and experienced in installing and repairing sliding gate systems for your home or business in the San Fernando Valley. Ask us about adding smart gate technology to your garage or gate system!

Swing Gate Operators

OT Gates and Fence Repair carries a full line of Swing Gate Operators (also known as swing gate motors or swing gate openers). Our swing gates open-and-shut like a door and modern systems are ususally electric. They open or close automatically with the help of electric, hydraulic, and smart openers with apps from your phone or tablet.

Swing gate operators are used when a gate (or two gates) open inward or outward away from a wall. Swing gate operators usually come in three major types: ram arm, articulating arm, and underground gate operator. Considered an elegant gate system, they generally require fewer repairs and maintenance as they have fewer moving parts than slide gates (if the ground is level). Swing gates are also much quieter when opening and closing than sliding gates.

And, if your home is up in the hills of many of our favorite Valley neighborhoods, a sliding gate could prove challenging. Fortunately, we can advise you on the best options for your property and make sure your vision is realized. One of the great things about driveway gates these days is the ability to automate and control their functions with smart technology apps that make life much easier.
