Three of the Most Popular Automatic Gate Systems for Parking Garages

automatic gate systems for parking garagesParking garages require a robust gate system to ensure efficient vehicle management and provide revenue. There are various options available when it comes to choosing a gate system for a parking garage, with manual and automatic gates being widely used for parking control.

Given their ease of use and ability to collect revenue, automatic gate systems are perhaps the most popular type of parking system for a commercial parking garage. Here are three of the most popular automatic gate systems currently in use:

Automatic Boom Gates
The most popular type of automatic gate system found in parking garages in unquestionably the boom gate. Also popular for toll booths and check points, boom gates allow for quick and easy manage of vehicles, helping to control the flow of traffic in and out of a parking garage.

With a large arm that rises above the vehicle when access is granted, boom gates are easy to monetize when pairing with a controlled access system, such as an automatic ticket entry station, which is why they have become so widely used.
Some parking garages use automatic boom gates with a booth controller, where an employee provides tickets and grants access to and from the garage, so it’s always a very versatile system that can be used to suit the requirements of each parking garage.

Automatic Cantilever Gate
A much more robust form of security compared to a boom gate, automatic cantilever gates are a larger type of slide gate that provides more restricted access, making them a popular choice for parking garages placing a strong focus on security.

As one of the easiest types of gates to automate, a cantilever gate is simple to operate with an automatic entry system, and the fact they open horizontally rather than vertically (like a boom gate) means they are good for parking garages with limited height.

Automatic Swing Gates
While not as popular in parking garages as boom or cantilever gates, swing gates offer many advantages that make a good choice in commercial parking environments. For instance, they are quick and easy to install, while their design makes them appropriate for garages with inclines that make other types of gates difficult.

Swing gates offer the same degree of control and restriction as other gates, although do take longer to open and close. They are quite easy to maintain however, as their opening system is typically more simple to repair compared to sliding gates such as a cantilever, which have more complex chain and pully systems.

I have to say that the service at Superior Gate Services was fantastic. Cindy first took my call and was super helpful and friendly.  We just bought a home that has an electric gate and we wanted it repaired and serviced.  She managed to get us into a slot the next day and called that next morning to give us a time range. Great follow-up! Our technician Sean (I hope I remembered his name correctly) was awesome and went through the repairs,  and gave several operating and home maintenance tips to my husband.  This company aims to please on all counts and delivers !!  We will be using them again and would definitely recommend them.

I got a quote the same afternoon I inquired, had the gate installed within a week, and Scott and his crew have always gone above and beyond to help out, even reconnecting my garage wires that the dog ripped out when they were just quoting me on the gate. If I've ever had any trouble, they go out of their way to come out promptly and help in anyway they can... Obviously without ever charging me for a visit. Highly recommend!!

Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had called them last week first when my automatic gate stopped working but then remembered that I had a home warranty so told them never mind but then it ended up not being covered. So I emailed them back and they called me the next business day and came over within an hour! Scott came out and told me it just needed some tuning up and the actual opener was in good shape and one of the best ones. So he did a tune up and he helped me change the code for my gate opener!

Called these guys off their positive yelp reviews after getting the run around from another contractor. They took my first service call and responded quickly and took care of the problem and worked around my schedule. Since that first call uv had two other properties needing their services and just like the first call no hassles. Show up take care of it and reasonable prices. They don't hit you with extras like some others do they fix the problem and then they do a full tune up and cleaning on the gate at the same time. My other contractor would charge extra to do the tune up. That's dumb. Just make it happen. That's what they do. They just make it happen without taking you to the bank. Thanks superior for being on the team, your a great asset.
