Electric Gates for Access to Control

Electric gates have been a foundation of Golden Bay Fence Plus Ironworks Inc.’s services. We have a long history of offering access control services for industrial customers from all industries. From meeting demanding requirements to getting you the best value possible for your dollar, we are committed to your success in everything we do.

If you’re in the marketplace for a new electronic gate or other automated access control system, we can assist. Call our office for assistance from one of our friendly professional agents.


The primary role of an electrical gate is to prevent unapproved access to your facility. An automated access control system will make this process faster and simpler, saving your company time and decreasing the quantity of effort needed of your staff.

Typically, electrical gates will consist of the gate itself and an automatic operator. The gate is the physical barrier (sometimes called an “electrical barrier gate”), which should be strong and long lasting enough to meet your requirements, while the operator is the electronic mechanism that triggers it. Together, these elements work to make sure only authorized personnel can enter your residential or commercial property.

Types of Electric Gates

Different companies have different security needs and, to support this, Golden Bay Fence Plus Ironworks Inc. offers one of the most extensive selections of electrical gate types. Our products consist of:

Cantilever Gates

Cantilevered gates that move out to permit easy access to the interior of your facility. Automatic cantilevered gates are reversed to permit smooth operation and can cover openings up to 120 feet large in a double configuration. When picking an electric driveway gate for a service, cantilever gates are one of the most popular options.

Swing Gates

Cantilevered gates that move out to permit easy access to the interior of your facility. Automatic cantilevered gates are reversed to permit smooth operation and can cover openings up to 120 feet large in a double configuration. When picking an electric driveway gate for a service, cantilever gates are one of the most popular options.

Vertical Lift Gates

Vertical lift gates that rise up-wards when access is given. Though highly space efficient, these types of systems are higher stress and might cause components to wear-down or break faster, particularly in high-traffic locations.

Electric Gates for Pedestrians

Pedestrian gates and gates for specific access control in restricted areas.

Solar Powered Gate

A solar panel attaches to any moving gate, so if you have an automatic, sliding, or swinging gate, a solar powered panel will work fine with it. If your property sees 8 or more hours of unobstructed daylight each day, then a solar gate can work for you. If your fence and gate area is surrounded by trees or tall buildings, sunlight can be blocked and the gate won’t be able to collect enough solar energy to operate. In the 8 hours that a solar powered gate collects energy, it has enough power to open and close a maximum of 10 times that day. If your property sees a lot of traffic, then your gate’s solar power will quickly be used up by midday and no longer open. If you do use your gate constantly throughout the day, a standard automatic gate is recommended instead.

How to Choose the Best Electric Gate

Choosing the best electrical gate requires a careful consideration of a number of factors:

  • Your access to requirements. This consists of the kinds of cars that will be reoccuring through your facility, and the amount of space offered for your setup.
  • The quantity of traffic travelling through your operation. High-volume centers will need faster automated gate systems to maintain efficiency without compromising security.
  • Specific regulative factors to consider. Military and correctional facilities, as well as information centers, government buildings and more, all may have particular ASTM, ISO or associated requirements for access to control that need to be satisfied.
  • Upkeep requirements. Complex automated gates have actually increased upkeep requirements, while exposed rollers and other elements can wear out much faster.
  • Your budget plan. Golden Bay Fence Plus Ironworks Inc. strives to have options at a wide range of price points, and we are more than happy to help you to discover the very best solution for your needs.

Picking an Access Control System

Access control systems are another essential element of an electronic gate system. Number pad and keycard systems are both offered, as are a variety of other technically innovative alternatives. Consider what will be best for your personnel while meeting your overall security and volume requirements. Golden Bay Fence Plus Ironworks Inc. can provide matched systems that enhance access to while providing you the comfort of knowing your facilities are appropriately protected.

Client Testimonials

Paul and his team are excellent at addressing challenges thrown at them. They do not make excuses on why things cannot be done; they solve problem for you by doing what can be done. When we were in a bind, Paul would throw resources at our project to make sure we were successful. Their attitude is a great fit for our high-visibility and high-maintenance project in San Francisco. Additionally, Golden Bay’s crew cared for installed work by others, and took great care to make sure their metals were protected during transport. I would definitely like to work with them again.

– Dominic Fung | Project Manager, Walsh Construction Company

I would like to extend my utmost gratitude to Mike and his crew of workers ( Golden Bay Fence Plus ) for installing the new fences at Rio Vista. Thank Mike and his crew for their hard work and dedication since June 16, 2022. I’ve seen lots of contracted crews at Rio Vista in the years that I have worked here. They would leave the place unkept, tools left out, gates left open etc. Mike’s crew has always been polite, professional, well mannered and gentlemen. Not one time did they leave any of the areas that they were working at unkept, they cleaned up and made sure the gates were closed and locked. If it were left up to me I would have Mikes men (Golden Bay Fence Plus) contracted to do all MDUSD schools that need new fencing.

– Gerald Glasper | Mt Diablo Unified School District

Huge thanks to the whole Golden Bay Fence Team for the outstanding work put in place at the Las Vegas Stadium. You were faced with numerous challenges, but there wasn’t a fence or barrier that could prevent the GBF team from getting done!!! I hope to work with your team in the future!
