Why Gate Installations On Hilly Terrains Are So Difficult
When most people think of Los Angeles, they do not think about much hills or mountains. People think about the smooth beaches, Hollywood Boulevard, and the California lifestyle. Nonetheless, a local resident can tell you how bumpy and hilly Los Angeles can really be when driving on Sunset Boulevard through Beverly Hills. After all, Beverly Hills does have HILLS in its city name. Same goes for the Hollywood Hills. Los Angeles is filled with hilly terrain throughout the city. This type of land complicates many things for owners of properties on these hilly terrains. One of the things that definitely increases in difficulty are gate installations. Gate installations on hilly terrain are very difficult.
Hilly terrain gate installations are difficult for a variety of reasons. One of them is the fact measurements become tricky. On a straight path land installation, all measurements stay the same throughout the entire process. For example, a driveway that measure 20 feet in diameter, the measurements will stay the same throughout the 20 feet meaning the gate could be a half-foot off the ground leaving room for the track and this distance will stay the same throughout the 20 feet. This scenario is not so for a gate installation on a hilly terrain. A hilly terrain will have different measurements throughout the 20 feet requiring custom measurements on the gate and track to ensure there is a proper installation that takes place. The following illustration provides a visual illustration of this scenario:
If the driveway or land goes up or goes across the driveway, a swing gate may not be able to open because it will hit the driveway. If you would like a more in-depth explanation of this process, feel free to give us a call at 310.620.3760.
Another thing that makes installations more difficult on hilly terrains is the maintenance. Since a gate installation on a hilly terrain requires special modifications, all parts of the gate need to be of the highest quality to ensure the installation doesn’t deteriorate and negatively affect the measurements over time which could result in your gate not opening properly. With the ultra-hot Los Angeles California sun beaming down, this can be quite a challenge.
