Product Description

Maintenance free, aluminium sliding gate systems. All of our sliding gates are manufactured with an overhang, which has several purposes. The first is that it allows the support roller system (typically hidden behind the opening) to connect to the gate. It also is more aesthetically pleasing as you cannot see through the sides. When measuring for your new aluminium sliding gate, simply take the opening size as you normally would for a driveway gate (measure the clear opening). Included in our pricing, we have allowed for this 500mm overhang which is manfactured as part of the sliding gate. You only need to select the size bracket for your gap width, opening size. For example, if your gap/opening is 3.6m - we will manufacture the gate to be 4.1m. You would select the price/size bracket that has 3.6m within it. If you need help planning your sliding gate system, whether its tracked or cantilever, contact our technical support team today!  

Proudly 100% manufactured here in the UK.

Remember that any of our aluminium  gate range designs can be manufactured ready for gate automation - please contact us for more information. We can supply Roger Technology automation kits, with bracketry pre fabricated to the gate.    

How to measure and install a sliding gate system

NOTE - we are currently updating our extensive guides on measuring and installing sliding gates, including how to videos. Basic information has been provided below during this time. Please contact our technical team for more assistance at present.

 

Measuring For A Sliding Gate

Measure your opening width or gap width.

Ensure you have enough run back (for when the gate is open). Typically you require at least 500mm more than the opening size for a tracked gate. For a cantilever, it is typically 40% more than the opening size.

 

Installing A Sliding Gate

With the correct preparation a sliding gate install can be relatively easy.

Levels are important - take the levels across the driveway (does it rise or fall left/right?). Also, the levels into the run back area (where the sliding gate opens).

 

We offer our sliding gate systems in both cantilever and tracked versions.

The kits come with all hardware to allow a complete installation of a manual sliding gate. If you wish to automate this, we can also supply sliding gate motors by Roger Technology Italy - the best on the market!  We install these ourselves and can highly recommend them for reliability.

These sliding kits are used on all of our different gate ranges - composite sliding gates, aluminium sliding gates and metal sliding gates.
