Slide Gate Openers and Operators
A slide operator is perfect to use when space is limited, so the gate runs parallel to the fence or wall. Green Eagle Garage Door Co. has slide gate operators that range from residential to heavy duty commerical grade depending on the size of the entrance and quantity of open/close cycles.
Swing Gate Openers and Operators
A swing operator is used when a gate (or two gates) open inward or outward away from the wall. Similar to your bedroom or bathroom might, simply opening inward or outward.
Swing gate openers can be two types of operators.
1. A swing arm operator, which is a box, that sits off to the side and has an arm extending to the gate.
2. An actuator arm is located on the gate and post and uses either a hydraulic piston or a jackscrew-operated piston.
