Sliding gates

Rapid, automated access for vehicles and wide entrances

Secure your site with sliding gates

When your site needs to admit large vehicles or multiple lanes of traffic, sliding gates are often the right option. Manual or electric sliding gates can span openings of up to 38 metres. They can run on a railed track, or you can suspend them above the ground with a cantilever design.

Why should I choose sliding gates?

If you’re managing a site that needs to provide secure access for vehicles, the design of sliding gates makes them an effective solution.

Sliding gates for wide openings

Some premises need particularly wide entrances for heavy goods vehicles or industrial machinery. Sliding gates are typically the safest and most space-efficient way to secure these entry points.

Unlike traditional swing gates, these gates don’t pivot around their gate post; they retract parallel to your fence. Vehicles can drive right up to the gate without needing to provide clearance for the gate to pivot. This reduces the risk of damage to both the vehicle and the gate and saving space on your premises.

Enhanced security

For vehicle access, you’re often faced with a choice between sliding gates and rising arm barriers. Barriers can be raised and lowered very quickly between individual vehicles. So, they may be best when you need to manage a continuous flow of traffic.

Sliding gates have the advantage when your priority is security, because you can erect them at much greater heights. This means you can seal off your entry point more completely against both vehicles and pedestrian intruders.

Elegant entryways

When aesthetics matter, cantilever sliding gates are an elegant solution. They can be a good option for managing access to a private residential or commercial property.

Appearing to float above the ground, cantilever gates provide a clean, modern, minimalist look. And unlike tracked sliding gates, they cannot be blocked by dirt or snow. So, they are good for maintainability too.
