We do not sell gate automation products; however, our commercial and industrial gates are “automation friendly” when you ADD the double channel mid rail to your gate.   Simply find the commercial or industrial gate you like in our online store, then as your price it online, you can customize and “ADD” the mid rail to your gate.  Order any commercial or industrial gate + Heavy Duty Gate Hinges and 4″ x 4″ posts or column mount to your own structure.

Find a local outlet of a national brand because you’re probably going to need a service agreement; motorized arms and electrical connections may require on-going maintenance.  We recommend national gate automation brands like MightyMule, LiftMaster, Viking and Apollo.  However, other brands will work, too.

Gate Operators must be attached to the U-Frame of the Gate or an optional Mid-Rail.  We take no responsibility if you attach the gate arm only to the vertical pickets.

You have the option of connecting your opener equipment to the U-FRAME, which is included on wider gates, instead of the MID RAIL.  However, we do recommend this configuration for snowy regions.  For colder climates with a lot of snow, it’s best to order the optional MID RAIL which is much higher off the ground.
