Sliding Gates

Sliding gates offer a great alternative to swing gates. Perhaps you prefer sliding gates, or more likely the layout of your property demands a sliding gate as an alternative.

Both roller-tracked AND cantilever gates can be automated using CAME's range of Sliding Gate Motors.

The installation of an electric sliding gate system is a little more involved than any other type of electric gate, but once the correct ground track and/or cantilever roller frames are installed, then the installation follows the same format as with other types of electric gates.

You will almost certainly need a sliding gate if your entrance way:

  • Has limited room for swing gate wings to open in, compromising possible parking space.
  • Turns sharply left or right and a swinging gate would create an obstruction to the turning vehicle.
  • Is on a steep upward incline preventing a swing gate wing from opening up the drive.

Our trained engineers will be more than happy to visit your property to discuss which system would be the most effective solution for your needs.

There are two different types of sliding gate mechanism:

A tracked sliding gate runs on wheels along a grooved steel rail that is buried just below ground level.

A cantilever gate (pictured in the background) is counterbalanced above the ground, supported by rollers fitted to the bottom of the gate. The advantage of a cantilever gate is that you don't have to keep the track free of leaves - however, cantilever gates are generally more expensive as they require more civil engineering.
