The most convenient place for a gate can be next to a building, in the middle of the fence, or other locations. It may need to automatically close, swing open 90° or 180° flat. A fence fitting manufacturer has plenty of options to fit whatever choices you make.
The two most common metals for fence fittings are steel and aluminum. Steel gives your fence great strength, and is often galvanized to prevent rust. Aluminum is more lightweight than steel while being just as strong, and naturally doesn’t rust.
Large fencing projects can stretch for tens or even hundreds of miles, which means hundreds of different fittings. Working directly with a fence fitting manufacturer will make sure that you get the exact fittings that you need in the quantity that you need.
