Your Best Choice for Gate Security: Vertical Pivot Gates
If you have uneven terrain or a tight opening to your property that is preventing you from installing a large gate, vertical pivot gates may be your ideal solution. Unlike swing or slide gates—which require double the gate opening room to move horizontally along the ground—pivot gates occupy the air space, which is usually left unused. You don’t have to compromise the security and control of an area with a low-quality gate. Contact ECA Gate & Lock to learn more about vertical pivot gates!

Is a Vertical Pivot Gate the Best Choice for Your Property?
With so many options available for new gate installation, how do you know which is the best choice for your property? Consider these three questions to see if a lift gate may be the best fit:
- Do you have a narrow opening to your property or facility?
- Do you need a space-saving design because of the limited room on either side of your property’s opening?
- Do you have uneven terrain around your property’s entrance?
If the answer is yes to any of those questions, then we’d love to show you the amazing benefits of vertical pivot gates! Their space-saving design and easy operation make them a popular choice for home and business owners. More great benefits of lift gates include superior security against forced entry, extreme durability even in harsh conditions like snow, and minimal maintenance to keep them in great shape.

What is a vertical pivot gate?
A vertical pivot gate operates using a counter-balance system, which enables a gate up to 20 feet in length to rise into the air. The gate moves up at an angle, pivoting upward during the opening cycle and downward during the closing cycle. This type of gate is self-contained, stand-alone, and is usually installed in areas where space is limited. We frequently recommend these security gates for home and business owners who have a narrow opening to their property.
How much does a vertical pivot gate cost?
Vertical pivot or lift gates are a common option for commercial properties, warehouses, and residences where space is limited. The cost of a basic metal lift gate can range from $500 to $4,000. However, if you want luxury-designed wooden or aluminum lift gates made custom for your property, they can cost as much as $12,000.

What are the gates that open vertically?
Vertical pivot gates are a type of lightweight gate that operates on a single pivot point, which is placed on one side of the opening. These gates pivot by lifting and spinning vertically on the pivot point located at the base of the opening. With these gates, you don’t have to worry about having enough horizontal space for a sliding gate because they will be vertical when open.
