Sliding Gates are generally more secure than swing gates as they are retained within a rigid structure and are retained at the closed end making them much more difficult to force open and in particular less likely to be breached by vehicle impact. In addition, the more vulnerable points of a sliding gate are less accessible compared to a hinged gate. As well as being more secure, sliding gates, arguably, look more secure – so there is an element of the deterrent here too.
Where a roadway surface rises up on the property side of the access points needing a gate, a sliding gate will inevitably be the best (perhaps only) solution.
