AUTOMATIC DRIVEWAY GATES
Aaron Ornamental has been installing iron driveway gates in the Dallas and Fort Worth area for over 30 years. Our craftsman and installers are experts at what they do and we stand behind the quality of our products and installations.
There is an art to installing driveway gates and we have perfected it. All of our driveway gates are made to custom fit your driveway. It doesn’t matter if you need a swinging drive gate, a sliding drive gate (slide gate), or a sloped bottom drive gate, we can handle your requests.
Our standard gates are made from 2″ framing with 1/2″ pickets and 4″ heavy wall posts.
Standard upgrades to drive gates include: arched tops, double rails, kick plates, scroll crest, circle stars, circles, 3/4″ picket upgrades and framing material upgrades.
We not only fabricate and install driveway gates, but we also install the latest in automation technology. We prefer these brands but are not limited to only these:
Apollo 1550 and 1650
Elite Slide and Swing Operators
Our staff is well versed in the latest automatic gate technology and we frequently take continuing education seminars to stay ahead of our competition. Our estimators take pride in assessing the needs of every automatic gate call we get whether small or large.
Various add-ons would include but are not limited to:
This senses an obstruction and is an excellent safety feature for the young family with small children.
Exit Loops or Wands:
A loop is cut across the drive and wands are buried on the sides of a drive. Both sense the approach of a vehicle and trigger the automatic gate to open so that someone can leave. These are perfect for someone with a long drive too far for a transmitter signal to reach to allow guests to leave. It also adds convenience for the homeowner as well.
This is the follow through safety at apartment complexes. It triggers the automatic gate to reopen if it senses another car trying to follow through the gate. These features help keep lawsuits to a minimum.
This stops the automatic gate from closing if it senses something between the gateposts – such as a long bed trailer. This is a great feature if the automatic gate is close to a main road, but is not needed if you have an infrared eye installed.
Knox Boxes – K2 Switches – Strobe Sensors:
These are required for commercial and neighborhood automatic gates. These allow fire departments entrance in case of an emergency.
Allow automatic gates to open at a scheduled time and close at a scheduled time without the assistance of transmitter or other devices. This is great for places of business.
Automatic Gate Entry Systems:
Search for a particular name
Cell phone gate access
Camera surveillance in black & white or color
Works as a toll tag system
Full computer access
Logs entry/exit times for security purposes
Automatic Gate Operators are as important – if not more important – than the construction of the gate itself. We can install your choice of electric or solar powered automatic gate operators. The selection of these would depend on the weight of your gate the location. It is important to note that solar powered gates require at least 5 hours of direct sunlight a day to maintain the battery charge. So, sometimes it is not the best solution for the application.
