Sliding Gates are an excellent solution when a lack of space is an issue or a steep inclination into a property prevents the installation of conventional swing gates.
Country Gates & Barriers supply and install the highest quality manual & automatic cantilever gates, to suit your exact requirements. Whether a standard product or completely bespoke to match existing fencing/surroundings we ensure that the finished product is exactly what is required.
Manufactured with standard framework, our standard round tube infill can be replaced with a variety of options such as “D” or “W” palisade profiles, timber panels, solid sheeting or various mesh types to integrate perfectly with all fence types or existing surroundings.
The cantilevered type of sliding gate is different to a conventional type where a track across the entrance is required. With no track, a single cantilever gate can span widths of up to 10 metres and also be installed on uneven ground, over block paving or finish surfaces, even water without any real disruption to the roadway.
The gate glides on two sets of support/guide rollers, fixed to a concrete foundation calculated to be above the overall weight of the gate in the closed position to prevent the gate dropping and hidden within the main lower beam extrusion, ensuring a reliable, smooth & virtually silent operation.
The tracked type of sliding gate runs on wheels fixed to the bottom of the gate frame & run along a track which has to be level in the ground and approximately twice as long as the entrance width for the gate running back into the fully open position.
Our ground-works team work to calculated drawings to ensure that the track can be driven over by any size of vehicle without any chance of damage to the entrance.
Whilst not as popular choice as the cantilever type, the conventional tracked type is ideal for where space is a premium because it does not need the “overhang” required on a cantilever gate.
Available with added security extras such as razor-wire extensions and anti-climb spikes, both types are available in Galvanised Steel or Aluminium to prevent any corrosion & powder-coat finished in any standard or non-standard RAL colour.
