What Are Double Swing Gates?

Double swing gates consist of two gate panels, each attached by hinges to one side of the gate opening. The gate swings open from the middle to an angle of close to 180 degrees. They can be made from many fencing materials, including:


Typical double swing gates can accommodate openings between 10 and 12 metres wide.

Advantages of Double Swing Gates

Double swing gates have many advantages over single swing and sliding gates, such as:


  • They can cover a much larger opening than single swing gates.

  • They require a smaller swing radius than a single swing gate. For example, two four-metre gates need less swing space than a single eight-metre gate.

  • They allow you to partially open the gate if you don’t need the entire opening.

  • They have a more elegant appearance than other gate types.

  • The gate panels are lighter than a larger single panel and don’t require thick, bulky posts for support.

  • Swing gates are quieter than sliding gates when opening and closing.


Keep in mind that, because double swing gates have two panels, they require more hardware and are more expensive to buy and install than single swing gates.

Where to Install Double Swing Gates

Double swing gates have many practical applications for home and business owners, including:


  • Estate and residential driveway gates

  • Warehouses and factories

  • Farms and agricultural properties

  • Municipal service yards

  • Apartments and condominium complexes

Don’t be constrained by stock gate sizes. Duraguard Fence Ltd. can customize your double swing gate to accommodate any height, width or style, so you can get the fit and look you envision.

Automatic Double Swing Gates

You can easily automate your double swing gate for extra security and convenience. However, a double swing gate is more expensive to automate than a single swing gate because it requires two swing gate operators. Adding access control features, such as keypad entry systems or video intercoms, can give you control over who enters your property and when.
