Types of gates for a private house. Sample photo
The gates are subdivided into several types depending on the material of manufacture and options for opening / closing. They are:
Recently, metal structures have become the most common options. For a cheaper arrangement, you can use ordinary corrugated board, and for a richer and more luxurious one, a combination of solid metal with forging elements. However, wooden gates also look pretty good.
Arrangement of a swing entrance group
This is the most common type of gate for a private house. Their arrangement is possible if there is free space, which allows opening the sash without any problems. Modern swing-open structures are a metal frame, which is subsequently revetted with metal, corrugated board, wood or special sandwich panels.
Installation of support pillars
Perfect for support shaped tube 100x100. To install them, wells are dug into which they are filled with rubble and sand, creating a so-called pillow. The support, fixed in such a pit with spacers, is poured with concrete with the addition of coarse gravel.
Important! For complex, clayey soils, such a pillar arrangement may not be sufficient. In such situations, an additional jumper is welded between the supports at a depth of about 40 cm.
Assembling the frame
For the frame of the frame, a 60x30 pipe is used. For a rigid cross member, which is welded into the finished frame, a metal profile with a smaller section is taken, approximately 40x20. Hinges are welded along the edges of the frame, as well as shackles for the lock and bolt.Upon completion of the assembly, the welds must be sanded with a grinder, and then primed and painted.
Fastening corrugated board
If corrugated board is used for sheathing, then the C8 or C10 brands are best suited. The most convenient way to cut profile sheets is to use a grinder. Special discs without abrasive spraying are put on it. Fastening of cut-to-size corrugated board is made with rivets using a riveting tool; fastening with self-tapping screws is also allowed.
Important! Laying of corrugated board should be carried out with an overlap, capturing 1 wave of an adjacent element.
Arrangement of sliding gates
Not in all situations it is possible to install swing entrance groups. When there is very little space to open the doors, a sliding type of construction is used. Basically, sliding systems consist of a single leaf, which is made according to the same principle as a conventional swing gate for a private house. Photos of such samples demonstrate the ease of use.
In order for the structure to move, special rails are equipped, and rollers are welded in the lower part of the sash. It is also necessary to weld a guide to the upper part, which is designed to fix the sash in a certain position.
The operation of rail gates is difficult in winter because the moving parts can become clogged with snow or ice. During snowfalls, thorough cleaning of these elements, as well as the area around, is required. Also, a heating cable can be laid along the gate leaf, which will melt the snow, limiting movement.

Not everyone likes to open and close the doors manually. To do this, you have to get out of the car, then sit down again, it takes several minutes of precious time. It is much more convenient to press the button and the "chest" will open itself.
You can automate swing and sliding gate... For this, specialists have developed special linear and lever electric drives that allow the shutters to open independently. Other systems consist of an electric motor, a toothed rack, through which the gears transmit power to the gate leaves.
The drive itself is mounted on rails. Limit switches are installed on the rack, and photocells on the posts. Convenient remote control makes it easy and quick to open goal straight from the car, without physical effort.
