Motor Operated Sliding Gates

Melbourne Automatic Sliding Gates & Fences

Sliding Gates have become increasingly popular over the years, mainly because they have significant advantages over a traditional swing gate. The main advantages of electric sliding gates include space saving, less moving parts than swing gates and they are generally more affordable. We can fabricate and install a sliding gate and fence which will add security and value to your home or factory

There are a few different types of automatic sliding gates too, these include the traditional electric sliding gate with a track bolted to a concrete pad or steel beam in the ground. The other option is a Cantilever automatic sliding gate which is effectively trackless, its commonly used when the driveway is uneven or gravel.

A telescopic sliding gate which is a bi-parting sliding gate which is used when not enough space is available for the gate to slide back. It basically fold's back in two sections allowing for much less space 

When choosing which sliding gate is best for your home or factory, its is important to consider the following:-

  • Is the driveway concrete level, or is the ground sloped?
  • What sort of vehicles will be driving through the entrance?
  • How much space is available for the gate to slide back?
  • How many vehicles will be driving through the entrance?
  • Is a fast sliding gate motor required?

It is important to also consider which sliding gate motor is best suited for your sliding gate. Parameters such as gate weight, duty cycle and speed need to be considered. For example, if you live on a main road,  a fast residential sliding gate motor is best suited for the application. We have installed many fast sliding gate motors in melbourne and the feedback is excellent, they operate at twice the speed of a normal sliding gate motor.

Quality hardware is essential for electric sliding gates. Wheels should have quality bearings and the top guide rollers should ensure the gate moves smoothly from the open to close position by holding the sliding gate up level.

We often use BFT sliding gate motors which are top quality Italian made gate motors with excellent after sales and genuine warranty. We use Tousek sliding gate motors when gates are installed on sloping ground. Tousek gate motors are made in Austria and are exceptional quality with a led screen on top of the motor casing for easy to read updates from the motor.
