Automatic Driveway Gates

Affordable Fence and Gates designs, builds and installs some of the most beautiful automatic driveway gates in Tucson, Oro Valley, Marana, Vail and neighboring cities.  As you will read below, we also select premium materials and construction techniques to achieve durability. Feast your eyes on the gallery below: the photos will give you all kinds of possible ideas for your own gate.

Why do people love our automatic driveway gates? They add beauty, privacy and security to their home.  For a relatively small investment, the extra curb appeal value is huge. Please note that most our metal driveway gates use solar energy for power: this reduces costs and simplifies the installation process.

As solar system technology progresses, these gates have continued to increase in popularity.  Most of the systems we install take advantage of the abundance of sunshine in Arizona by relying on solar battery charging.  Not only does this keep the price of the system down, it also simplifies the complexity and cost of installation by eliminating the need for additional work: no need to lay down electrical lines and dig trenches.

Please note that Affordable Fence and Gates does not do commercial or multi-residential automatic gate applications. Instead, we focus on providing quality customized installations for single-family properties.  Because the operating system is often more expensive than the gate itself, it is important that every new automatic gate be built to optimize the longevity of the former.

Our driveway gates are designed specifically for the application of a high-quality system and will ensure trouble-free operation for years as well as minimize the need for future maintenance and repairs.

The first step in the construction of your gate is selecting materials of the highest quality. Over the years, we have developed best practices and very reliable component sourcing. As an example of a best practice, we build oversized posts for swing gates: these posts will keep the new gates plumb and prevent damaging sway while the system is in motion.

All our automated gates are built with sealed adjustable ball-bearing hinges or, for rolling gates, machined wheels with sealed ball bearings instead of the common cast wheels with roller bearing. 

We cannot stress enough how critical these components are in the creation of a opening and closing system that will provide years of trouble-free service.  In fact, because these elements are so crucial for the successful long-term operation of an automatic gate, we will not automate a gate that was not built and installed by Affordable Fence and Gates.

Sometimes due to budgeting or other construction concerns, a homeowner may opt to delay the purchase and installation of the operating system.  When this occurs, the initial order will specify the gate to be built to the standards required for the addition of an automated operator. In this way, our customer can easily place an order for the electronic system to be installed at a time that is more convenient.

All automatic driveway gates installed by Affordable Fence and Gates  come standard with a solar operating system that includes safety beam detection, 5-watt solar panel, wireless keypad on post mount, and 5 key fob remotes.
