Wooden electric gates are preferred over wrought iron by many people who are looking for a more natural looking, solid and robust entrance to their property. And depending on the design chosen, a close boarded wooden electric gate can provide complete security behind your entrance.
They will require more maintenance than a wrought iron gate and there is always the risk of the gates warping or the wood splitting due to the nature of the material and the impact of the natural elements. However, any domestic wooden gate that has been well constructed, protected and maintained should provide many years of trouble free service. There are a wide variety of different gate styles with ample scope to provide a totally unique design. Wooden gates are generally constructed from the many different types of hardwoods such as Iroko, Oak and Teak although some people have chosen to have their gates made out of a softwood such as spruce, pine or fir to reduce the material cost of their gate project.
Most wooden gates are constructed as swing gates, with either a single or a double gate leaf. The typical installation is to have the gate leaves swinging into the the property. Although it is possible to swing the gates away from the property, this often is not possible as it could obstruct the public highway. Where space is at a premium at the front of the property or where the driveway is on an upward incline which would restrict a swing gate system, many people choose an electric sliding wooden gate as the best alternative for their electric gate project. Wooden electric gates at the entrance to any property can significantly enhance the value and saleability for the home owners.
