Cantilever sliding gates are a popular choice when it comes to securing a property and controlling the access of vehicles entering and exiting the premises. They operate by retracting horizontally to open and close which is perfect for sites with limited space. Other gates open with an arc and this space is required to be kept clear at all times, a horizontal sliding gate removes this requirement so is perfect for driveways and car parks. Cantilever sliding gates are motorised and use rollers which removes the need for a track to be installed. Because of this, a cantilever gate can be installed on slightly uneven ground as it doesnt need to be smooth for a track. .
The trackless, roller design makes for a much smoother operation, reducing friction during the open & close cycle which results in a quieter operation and reduces wear and tear on the gates components.
Cantilever sliding gate features:
- Smooth, quiet operation
- Low maintenance
- No ground track required
