Our Sliding Gates
Our Sliding Gates are manufactured from 6063 T6 Aluminium and Powder Coated using Interpon Powder Coating for superior strength and corrosion resistance.
Sliding Gates are typically fabricated using a 50 x 50mm frame with the bottom rail 100*50mm to incorporate the wheels. All design patterns can be incorporated in our Sliding Gates. Gate Posts are required on either side of the gate and we can assist in the selection of appropriate posts to suit the size and weight of the gates. Sliding Gates run on an aluminium gate track that is fixed to the driveway. The gate is supported by either a nylon guide block or rollers; with a gate stop to catch the gate when in the closed position.
Gates can be easily automated if required.
We manufacture Sliding Gates to suit the design, colour, opening and height required.
Sliding Gate Setup & Operation
Sliding gates require several extra components for safe and reliable operation. Guide Posts are positioned at the back of the gate on either side; one to support the gate whilst it slides, and the other to support the gate in the closed position. The gate operates on an aluminium track, with 90mm wheels inserted in the bottom rail. The gate sits a total of 40mm from the ground so this needs to be allowed for when determining the gate height. The link below shows a detailed drawing on how sliding gates are typically set up and operated.

Sliding Gates are fully packaged for safe and easy handling. Whilst powder coated aluminium is very robust, it is susceptible to scratching or denting during handling and transport to site.
