Vinyl driveway gates are a great alternative option for buyers who do not require a sensor system
to control the motion of the gate. Instead, vinyl gates typically feature a deadbolt lock or a simple latch as
a means of access control. These gates can also work in conjunction with a keyless entry system or with a
remote control. Vinyl has a stronger tensile strength than wood does and is flexible in its design. Vinyl

these gates cannot be repainted and instead must be fully replaced if an owner wishes to change the color.
They are relatively inexpensive and require less maintenance than wooden driveway gates do.
