A double-gate fence is most commonly used when you are looking to have a wider entrance to the yard. A double-gate fence is common in driveways, where a gate has to be big or an automatic, mechanized gate, but the double gate from Gates and Automation Direct is the standard option for a driveway. It is a good option because it is easy to maintain, easy to use, and easy to secure.
If you are in an area where you are using large equipment such as a small tractor or riding lawnmower, then it is a good idea to get a double gate and use it as the backyard gate. This is a gate that connects the fenced-in yard to the rest of the property. A double gate is going to provide you with a wider opening and still maintain the security of the standard fence, which will give you peace of mind because you have a double-gated backyard entrance.
Double-gated fences are also very secure because they are made from strong and resilient aluminum that is used on the rest of your yard fence. Depending on which fence you choose, it can have finials that prevent people from crossing the gate and entering your property. The sturdy construction prevents trespassers from pushing their way through and entering the property. The sealed-double gate is very secure.
A double gated fence is going to be great when welcoming people because it offers a way of opening the yard to friends and neighbors.

Can a Double gate add value to the property?

This is not cheap maintenance-heavy wood, cheap chain-link, or vinyl, it is aluminum and ornate. This exudes charm and the architectural detail is going to capture the attention of passersby. Some can even get closer so they can admire your estate. Whether it encompasses the front yard of the condo, the full extent of the expensive state, or the perimeter of a suburban home, an aluminum fence is a good option that gives out charm, confidence, and security that you cannot find in other fencing options.

There is nothing better than this.
Choosing Aluminum over Vinyl Fencing
In simple terms, aluminum always looks better compared to vinyl fencing. There are some vinyl fences that fit a given style of house and aren’t ugly, but the aluminum always looks more stately, secure, and expensive (though the prices of the two options are comparable).
Aluminum is also more resilient compared to vinyl. A vinyl fence can be easily damaged by a strong windstorm and can tear the fence down or punch holes. A teenager could climb the fence only for it to crumble down – where he wouldn’t even attempt to climb it if it was aluminum. If they climb, then the end of the finial is going to deal with them and it won’t be possible to damage the fence.
Sun and heat cause vinyl to discolor, and repeated hits from sprinklers can leave hard water stains on the vinyl fence. You don’t have to worry about maintenance when you have aluminum fences. It has a powder coating that is resilient and tough and doesn’t get damaged by the weather – no wind damage, rust, staining, or sun damage. You can’t say that about vinyl. A new vinyl fence is going to require washing down after a storm kicks up mud using a hose. This is not something you have to worry about when you have an aluminum fence. It is going to look amazing from day one and remain that way.
This is why you get a lifetime warranty when buying aluminum fences. This is because the sellers are confident about the strength and resilience of the fence. You will be happy with aluminum fences which will become a great investment in your property.
