What is a double automatic gate?

Gates New Orleans - Crescent Iron Works

Automatic gates can only be opened with a unique gate opener (like a garage opener), keypad pin, intercom system, or installation. Electric gates discourage trespassers and prevent solicitors from entering your property. If you’re concerned about the safety of your property, installing an electric driveway gate is a good security measure for your peace of mind.

A double gate is essentially two iron-wrought gates installed at the end of your driveway like double French doors.

Your double gate can be installed in two ways:

  • If you already have a fence, a double gate adds a layer of security to your home by restricting entry to people you trust.
  • Otherwise, we can install a double gate between stone, metal, or wood pillars for an elegant entrance feature.

Our double gates can swing toward your home when you pull up, or they can slide to the side along a fence when you approach. If you’re pulling from a busy street into your driveway, this gives you more space to pull out of traffic while you open the gate.

With Big Easy Iron Works, you have the ability to choose from a variety of style options available for your iron-wrought gate.

Or, if you have something custom in mind, we can create your gate using an array of different shapes and designs, with ornamental posts or finials for a more intricate and elegant finish.
