Why sliding gates?
Electronic sliding gates can be manufactured to approximately 20m spans overall. They’re ideal for high security sites and industrial or commercial premises, and offer many benefits to your business; including:
- Provide a secure perimeter and a ‘first line of defence’
- Allow you to control and restrict vehicle access
- Easy to use – providing convenience and more security
- Space-saving – great for sites with space restrictions
- Durable – we manufacture our gates to withstand the British weather
- Aesthetics – we can match the finish with fencing or use your brand colours
Sliding gate design – your options
With our bespoke sliding gate design service, we’ll make sure that you get the most appropriate solution for your site. There are options for you to consider, but don’t worry, we’ll give you all the time you need to identify the best design for you.
The first choice to make will be the type of automatic sliding gate:
Tracked sliding gates
Tracked sliding gates are guided during operation through the use of bottom wheels that run along a track installed across the span of the road/gateway. Because the track supports the weight of the gate, these can be ideal for wider apertures; they take up a little less space than cantilevered gates, which is useful on slightly more restrictive sites.
Cantilever sliding gates
This type of automated sliding gate can be more beneficial for sites with heavier traffic, as their absence of a track means there’s less likelihood of damage over time. However, they do need a bit more space when it comes to operation, so you’ll need a site survey so that we can check that a cantilever gate will fit. With no track to keep clear they can be lower in maintenance than their tracked counterparts, and they are generally quicker to install as there’s less in the way of groundworks required to get them fitted and working.
During your gate design consultation, our specialists will also discuss your visual requirements, as your gate will be one of the first things your visitors see when approaching your premises, so it needs to look the part too!
We can offer a range of infills and finishes, such as:
- Vertical bar
- Anti-climb weld mesh
- Solid infills
- Solid and hollow bar
- Powder coating in a wide range of colours
- Business branding available on some finishes
