mechanical gate

GlargleJuly 22, 2014

Roughly how much does a mechanical gate (~10'x6') cost with all of the components? Trying to get an idea of if this project is affordable. Thanks for your input!

DIY kits are your cheapest option. Costco sells them online. I had one done over a 14ft. driveway, single gate set up and it was $11K. Can do yourself for less than half last I checked.

If you need to have electrical run out to the gate area remember to have that priced out as well. Check whether you will need a Knox box or similar for fire dept. Our double swing gate was similar in price to MFatt's (including Knox box but not electrical).

Oh yeah, I will add that our project already had power at the $11K price but we did have to have a knox box.

That really jogged my memory Oaktown, LOL, its been 3 years since we installed.
