Why Choose one of our Electric Sliding Gates?
- Limited Space for driveway gates? An electric sliding gate is an ideal solution when there is limited space at an entrance because they take up little so little space, while open or closed or when opening and closing. Sliding gates are also a good way of creating more useable space for parking from the area which would have been required for swing gate opening.
- Does your driveway turn to the right or left sharply? Where the driveway entrance turns sharply to the right or the left and a wing type gate would form an obstruction to the turning vehicle again the makes an electric sliding gate the ideal choice.
- Do you have a sloping driveway? Sliding gates are also a good solution where the driveway slopes up and away from the gates, where the slope would have prevented swing gates from opening.
- Want a highly secure driveway gate? Whenever extra security is required and the driveway needs to be securely closed off by the electric gate, then the electric sliding gate forms the ideal solution. Unlike swinging gates they are highly 'ram' resistant.
- Better Design Sliding gates move in one direction, often directly parallel to an existing fence line. This efficient use of space makes a sliding gate an ideal choice when designing a property's perimeter fence and security system.
- Safer than Swinging Gates Safety devices are strongly recommended, if not required, when automating a gate. Such safety devices may include safety photobeams, safety edges, and loops and loop detectors. Safety devices are designed and installed to protect against the gate closing on a vehicle. Due to the linear movement of a sliding gate, the path of the gate is limited in comparison to a swing gate which swings in an arc approximately 90 degrees.
- Less Expensive In some instances, when a double swing gate and a sliding gate is to be considered, a single sliding gate will be less expensive to automate since it requires only one gate operator instead of two.
- More Pleasing to the Eye Sliding gates simply look and operate better. The smart appearance, efficient design, and craftsmanship in a sliding gate is sure to impress owners, visitors, and customers visiting the property.
