We highly recommend swing gates to everyone as it does not have wheels and is a lot easier to maintain compared to folding gates and sliding gates. Customers usually face many problems after installing the folding gates and sliding gates, mostly caused by the gate wheels/ rollers. They are the only types of gates that have wheels, making them harder to maintain than the others.
To maintain these gates, you must always spray WD40 on all moving parts on the gate such as the bearing, hinges and wheels. Any debris found on the track must also be swept off at all times to prevent them from getting stuck on the gate wheels. It would be best if you can replace the wheels every five years that is only if budget is not a concern for you. We know that money is usually an issue for most customers, so we strongly discourage them from getting the folding gate and sliding gate. Of course, for customers who insist on getting them, we do sell these gates from local brands.
