Sliding Gates

Slide gate applications are commonly used for commercial gate automation systems. These are the most robust style of operators but require a lot more hardware and concrete work to install. A slide gate is an ideal choice when dealing with a steep grade or uneven terrain, especially when you cannot open the gate outwards.

Slide gate operators ride on a track or cantilevered out on pipe track wheels. Most units are chain driven and have the control board housed on board the operator, but a few models use a rack-mounted to the gate that rides on a pinion gear on the operator with a separate cabinet for the control board. Commercial units are available that can operate gates up to 40’ long and weigh several thousand pounds.

Cantilever slide gates are counter-balanced in order to allow the gate to smoothly slide out in a linear motion. These gates are perfect for an area where a large opening is required, possibly for large trucks or machinery.
