Installing an estate or driveway gate to your property provides extra protection for your loved ones, adds beauty and value to your home, and provides peace of mind. The Door Company (TDC), California’s leading garage door company, offers residential and commercial customers a variety of driveway gates that can be selected according to personal style and desired function.
“TDC takes great pride in providing our clients with attractive, long-lasting and dependable gates and control systems designed to meet their security and access needs,” said TDC President Mark Stuenkel. “Whether you’re interested in adding visual appeal to your property, monitoring traffic, or wanting to automate an existing gate system, TDC can help.”
Driveway gates come in a variety of types and styles including:
- Sliding Gates — Sliding gates are ideal for applications where there is insufficient room for swing gates to open into and where higher security is required. Assuming the customer has fencing, then the gate simply slides open parallel to the fence.
- Swing Gates — Swing gates feature a hinged opening motion that is stationary at one end and swings open or closed on the other end. A swing driveway gate is typically less expensive than a sliding gate.
- Four-fold Gates — A four-folding swing gate is use to control vehicle access control to a parking garage. The four-fold door panels fold completely clear of the opening and are visible by drivers during their entire operation, thereby eliminating costly damage to both the doors and vehicles.
- Vertical Pivot Gates — As a popular choice for vehicle access control, vertical pivot gates are ideal for installations where a sliding gate is impractical, due to limited space. In addition, since vertical pivot gates lift vertically to open, they work nicely where ice and snow accumulations could prevent sliding gates from operating.
All TDC gates can be installed on a variety of property types including single and multi-family homes, farms & ranches and commercial businesses.
TDC gate operators can be installed with a variety of options including safety devices, loop detectors, key pads, pedestals, telephone entry, and remotes. With a diverse collection of access control items, TDC helps residential and commercial customers achieve a complete system that specifically meets the needs and demands of their property.
Once a decision has been made as to the type of design and operation of the customer’s gate system, then decisions need to be made about how the system is activated. TDC helps customers design a system using any activation from a radio control transmitter in their vehicle to system additions including egress activation devices, telephone entry systems, card readers, keypads. “We can assist with security by providing programmable devices which can be accessed for changes when you’re on location or away,” said Stuenkel.
