Automated Sliding Guide Rail Gates
Automatic Sliding Driveway Gate Systems are best suited to sites with a level surface and used when there is limited space, or where upward sloping driveways make swings gates impractical.

Paved, concrete or asphalt (with a suitable concrete foundation) driveways that provide a clear surface for the gate guide rail track to be mounted onto is best.

Gravel driveways are not suited as the gravel builds up on the gate guide rail track which interrupts the Sliding Gate Operation.

Common problems experienced when this happens is that the auto reverse sensor will be activated as the automated gate thinks it is hitting an object, resulting in the gate reversing itself back into the open position.

This will then compromise the expected security of the premises as the gate automation logic controller will hold the gate open until the obstacle is cleared to minimise further long-term damage to the sliding gate operator.

Automated Sliding Cantilever Gates
Cantilever Vehicle Access Gate Systems are suited to high traffic Industrial and Commercial locations where the gate are constantly being operated.

They are greatly suited to locations where it is not practical to fit the surface type gate guide rail or where traffic like trucks or forklift would damage the sliding gate guide rail.

The gate is suspended over the entrance and therefore needs no guide rail below it. The basic principle uses an additional section of gate (approximately one third of the opening) to counterbalance the section that spans the roadway.
