What kind of maintenance do swing gates need?

The hinges and their welding require special attention. You should check these hardware parts for wearing and damage frequently and lubricate them once a year. If you have a gate operator, you should clean it and its electronic accessories annually too. The panels and posts require basic cleaning and protection from the elements. Usually, regular repainting is sufficient.

How tall should a residential gate be to provide security?

While there is not a set standard for residential security gates, the gate should be 8 feet tall to provide protection against intruders. Remember that this is the optimal height for fencing too. If you consider a taller gate, you have to ensure that it will be designed to operate smoothly given its larger size and greater weight.
