A fence gate or gateway is a point of entry to a space which is enclosed by a fence. Gates can prevent or control the entry or exit of individuals, or they may be merely decorative. The word is derived from old Norse "gat", meaning road or path, and originally referred to the gap in the wall or fence, rather than the door-like barrier that closed it. The moving part or parts of a gateway may be considered "doors", fixed at one side but opening and closing like a door. A gate may have a latch that can be raised and lowered to both open a gate or prevent it from swinging open. Locks are also used on gates to increase the security. Gate doors can even be opened by an automated gate operator.
