As a Blend With Surrounding Fence

For many fence setups, double gates are installed to blend with the surrounding fence. This offers an extra sense of security, since it can be hard to tell where a single gate ends and the other one begins from a distance.

With this kind of placement, you’ll want to make sure that your chosen gates match the style and color of your overall fence design. Also be sure to measure out the width of your setup so that it matches both sides of the fence.

At the End Of A Driveway

Installing double gates at the end of a driveway can be a great way to add some extra security and convenience to your home or business. This kind of placement offers easy access for vehicles, while still providing an additional layer of security by making it more difficult for any potential intruders to enter.

If you’re planning on placing your double gates at the end of a driveway, be sure to install them away from the street so that the open gate won’t obstruct any traffic. You’ll also want to make sure there’s plenty of space around the gate so that your vehicles can move in and out without any trouble.

Separating Two Areas

Double gates can be an ideal way to provide a secure barrier between two different areas. For instance, if you have a pool or other recreational area on one side of your property, then installing double gates at the entrance can provide extra security for the area.

These kind of placements are especially beneficial if you have an outdoor security system that can monitor both sides of your property. You’ll want to make sure that the gates open away from the area you’re trying to secure, as well as making sure it’s easy for authorized persons to enter and exit.

No matter what kind of placement you choose for your double gates, it’s important to take the time to plan out your setup before installation and make sure everything is done correctly. By doing this, you can ensure that your double gates will provide you with long-term security and convenience.
