You can increase the security on your property with almost any type of gate system. However, there are many different types available and it can be difficult to choose which one will work best for your needs.

They operate just like wired gates with an added solar power source that can be applied to almost any type automatic gate, including roll-open and swing-open models.

To ensure that a solar gate will work for you, consider the following:
- Does your fence get enough sun to power a solar gate? You need at least 5 hours daily.
- There is some additional maintenance necessary for operation of solar gates. They must remain clean and positioned correctly to take advantage of the sun’s rays.
- How often is the gate used? If the gate is opened and closed more than 10 times a day, you might need a wired gate instead.
