Wind Loading 

If this is the case with your gate entrance you may wish to consider ways to mitigate or avoid  the the risk of potential damage or failure caused by high wind loading situations.

For instance, you may wish to revise the design of the gate to include open pales, perhaps you may wish to change to a steel gate with open rails or even consider having a sliding gate system.

Very large timber gates have been installed with 2 operators each side for maximum efficiency and safety.
