Now that we have a dog I think that we’ll have to get a new fence for our backyard. I’ve always wanted to re-fence the yard and I guess I’ve got a good excuse to do it now.
Two sides of our yard has a chain link fence around it and those fences boarder on two neighbors. The third side of the yard borders our nearest neighbor and we have a tall wooden fence between us. That old wooden fence needs to be repaired every year and the chain link fence is too short. I’m certain our dog would be able to get out of our yard easily if she wanted to.
So I’ve started looking at different types of fences. I think we’ll either put in a tall wooden fence or one of those vinyl ones that look like wood.
As I was looking at fences I came across a website that specializes in Armless Gate Openers. Considering that I spend a lot of time working in the garden, carrying items like bags of earth and trays of plants back and forth I can really see the benefit of an armless gate.
They have both manual and power operated Gate Opener. The manual ones look pretty much like a normal gate but the post that holds it on one side pivots when pushed by your hand or as your body moves through the gate. There are other manual armless gates that have a post in the center and they swing around in a wide arc when they open.
They’re actually really cool looking. They look sturdy too.
The power operated gates are controlled with a hand held
Gate Operator device. You could have a power operated armless gate opener that looks like a simple small gate at the beginning of your homes walkway in your front yard, or perhaps at the opening of your backyard gate, or you could use a powered armless gate opener at the entrance to a driveway on a large gate.
I watched the videos on their video page and it looks like you can use a manual or powered armless gate opener just about anywhere! I saw them used in farms for swinging barn doors, gates on farm properties, gates on large residential homes and smaller gates at urban homes. The armless gate opener will work with virtually any type of gate material from vinyl gates to wooden gates.
The armless gates are easy to use and look much more attractive than ones with manual closures. They are also cost effective as they don’t require a lot of maintenance. The powered gates use a rechargeable solar battery so they’ll work in any weather and they’ll even work if you have a power outage since they’re solar powered.
If the armless gate opener sounds like the perfect solution for your home or work visit the site and take a look at the video page. There’s nothing like seeing these gate openers in action to help you realize how handy one would be!
In the meantime I’ll be picking out my fence and deciding if we’ll get an armless gate opener too.
