Swing gate operators are the most common type for residential driveways. One operator is needed for a single gate and two operators are needed for a double swing gate. We offer options to pair it with an access system for convenient control and efficiency.
Commercial gate operators keep your business moving quick and efficiently while making sure it remains safe and secure. Commercial swing gates are designed for heavier traffic and larger gate. Our systems are ideal for large gated communities or commercial facilities. We offer options to pair it with an access system for convenient control and efficiency.
Slide gates are another popular type of gate, particularly for commercial and industrial applications. They slide on steel or nylon rollers and are suspended above the ground. The commercial and residential slide gate operators sit flush to the fence line to offer precise, powerful gate control.
Barrier gates are commonly used in parking lots and other areas where access needs to be controlled. They typically consist of a long arm that is raised and lowered to allow or restrict access; however, we also manufacture custom galvanized pipe barrier gates described here in the attached drawing.
The vertical pivot gate lifts the entire panel 90-degrees like a barrier gate. It’s great for smaller or confided spaces where a traditional slide gate won’t fit. It also doesn’t require the kind of ground preparation that a rolling gate needs and can be used on sloped or uneven ground.

UL325 compliance refers to a set of safety standards established to ensure that gate operator systems are installed with safety devices that meet minimum safety requirements to prevent injuries and accidents. Great Lakes Fence Company will ensure your automatic gate compiles with regulations for safe operation.
To be UL325 compliant, gate operators must meet specific safety standards related to several aspects of their design and operation, including:
1. Force Sensing: Gate operators must be equipped with sensors that detect when an object or person is in the way of the gate, and automatically stop or reverse the gate’s direction to prevent injury or damage.
2. Emergency Stop: Gate operators must be equipped with an emergency stop button that immediately stops the gate’s motion in case of an emergency.
3. Control Wiring: Gate operators must have appropriate wiring to prevent electric shock or fire hazards.
4. Entrapment Protection: Gate operators must have safety devices that prevent people or objects from becoming trapped between the gate and other objects.
