The sliding gates are probably the most commonly used type of automatic gates in light-duty commercial applications.
The sliding gate is mounted parallel to the inside of the fence and slides horizontally back and forth across the gate opening. The sliding gate uses rollers on the bottom of the gate to support it. These rollers typically ride along a metal track that has been installed along the ground across the gate opening. Sliding gates are sometime also called “rolling gates” or “V-track gates”.
Usually, sliding gates are made of stainless steel, duragal steel, timber infill panels, aluminium and other types of architectural materials.
What is great about sliding gates is that they can be as wide as 15 meters to provide a high level of security. They typically offer trouble-free operations with stunning architectural design.
The most common safety devices installed for sliding gates are loop detectors, safety sensitive edges and photoelectric beams.
