Automatic Gate


I'm getting prices on having an automatic driveway gate installed at my residence/shop. I don't see a forum here related to automatic gates or even fences. Can anyone recommend a forum with knowledgeable people on this subject. The gate will be iron or aluminum with gate openers installed.


Thanks for any help.

If you're not doing the work yourself then the how to you need to focus on is picking the right contractor for the job. That'll mostly be local questions.

The questions related to specific materials, hardware, motors, controls and so forth are more in the 'design' end of things which points you toward the architect types who are also good sources of contractors suitable to the scale of the project... for a fee of course.

They'll also prepare a good set of drawings with specs and material lists that those contractors can bid off of so you can be more certain of an "apples to apples" comparison between the contractors.
