What can affect the Effective Gate Weight of your Sliding Gate?
Most of our Sliding Gate designs tend to physically weigh between 100 and 200kg however the Effective Gate Weight can be affected by numerous factors:
The faster it goes, the greater the load.
The greater the incline, the heavier it is.
Wind force against in-fills adds load.
Timber palings or in-fills absorb water increasing overall weight.
Old, unmaintained hardware can effect the smooth running of a gate which in turn increases its effective weight.
If your track isn’t straight or the motor misaligned then EGW will increase.
Cantilever & Telescopic gates are much harder to get moving then standard Sliding Gates.
