Commercial Sliding Tracked Gates
Metal sliding gates offer an excellent alternative to swing gates, as they are more secure once locked – the weak points are usually less accessible and the single structure design ensures additional prevention from the gate being driven into.
Sliding metal gates are suitable for both commercial and industrial installations.The main advantages of tracked sliding gates over cantilever sliding gates are:
- They can be used on wider openings simply because the larger size gate is fully supported along its entire run
- Mechanically, they are relatively simpler
However, for tracked electric sliding gates to operate the ground must be exactly level, and the rail must be kept clear of debris at all times.
The tracked sliding gate will consist of two main elements. Firstly, embedded in the ground is a length of metal track, spanning the entrance. The gate is then guided along this track using wheels mounted in the base of the gate with support posts and stop post at either side of the entrance. The motor incorporates electronic controls which can be set up to correct closing force and open/close positions. It can also provide a smaller opening aperture to provide pedestrian access only if required.
Various styles are available to suit all requirements, such as palisade or mesh infill and can be made to offer specific levels of security. If you have a specific custom design in mind, we would be pleased to offer advice and we can also make the gates to complement a new or existing fence line if required.Our metal sliding gates are bespoke and made to measure in house, manufactured to the highest standards and are designed specifically to take gate automation, safety devices and access controls.
Automation is our specialty at and there are different access control options available, form intercoms to card readers and keypad, allowing convenience and security for you and your personnel. The gates will usually be operated with a ‘single hit’ option, whereby the gate opens at the touch of a button on the remote control, and closes automatically behind you.
Our automatic metal gates are beautiful crafted and once fully welded and assembled , each gate can be fully galvanised to prevent rusting and can then usually powder coated according to preference, whichwill give long life and a touch of elegance. All our commercial gates are manufactured to specific site requirements, and include appropriate safety devices to ensure they meet the latest European safety legislation
