Driveway Gates

Affordable Fence and Gates builds and installs some of the most beautiful residential auto gates in southern Arizona.  Adding privacy and security is the reason usually given for adding this attractive addition to your home.  Most gates use Solar energy for power, reducing costs, and complexity of the install.  Let us design an auto gate and system for your home.

With the advances in solar operated automatic gate systems, driveway gates have continued to increase in popularity among homeowners.  Most of the gate operating systems we install take advantage of Arizona’s abundance of beautiful sunshine by including solar battery charging systems.  Not only does this keep the price of the operating system down, it also simplifies the complexity of the system by eliminating the need for additional electrical lines and trenches. Affordable Fence and Gates does not do Commercial or Multi-residential automatic gate installations, instead focusing on providing quality customized applications for single family residences.  Because the operating system is often more expensive than the gate, it is important that every new automatic gate is built to optimize the longevity of the operating system.


Our beautiful driveway gates are designed specifically for the application of a high-quality gate operating system and will ensure trouble-free operation as well as minimizing the need for future maintenance and repairs. The first step in the construction of our driveway gates is the selection of materials of the highest quality.  This includes over sized posts for swing gates which will keep 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 elements are in the creation of a gate that will provide years of trouble-free service.  In fact, because these elements are so crucial for the successful long-term operation of an automated gate, we will not automate a gate that was not built by Affordable Fence and Gates.

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

All Affordable Fence and Gates automatic gate installations 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.
