What Is a Single Swing Gate?

A single swing gate consists of one gate panel attached by hinges to one side of the gate opening. The door swings open at an angle of 180 degrees and can accommodate openings up to 6 metres wide. The gate panels can swing outward or inward, depending on your property’s terrain and proximity to walkways or streets. Single swing gates can be made of various fencing materials, including chain link, vinyl, wood and ornamental iron.

Reasons to Install a Single Swing Gate on Your Property

Single swing gates have many advantages over sliding gates:


  • They’re quieter than sliding gates when opening and closing.

  • You can open them over uneven terrains, such as gravel.

  • Single swing gates require less hardware and moving parts than sliding and double swing gates. That means they’re less expensive to buy and install and easier to maintain.

  • Single swing gates have no tracks to keep clear of snow, ice and debris.


Be aware that single swing gates require more clearance room than double swing gates. For example, a four-metre-wide single swing gate requires a swing radius of four metres, whereas a double swing gate for the same space would require only two metres of clearance.

Where to Install a Single Swing Gate

Single swing gates are versatile and can be used for residential, commercial or industrial applications. Single swing gates are perfect for driveways, apartment and condominium complexes, parkades and pedestrian entranceways.
