Sliding Gate Operators
Sliding gate operators open your door gently, smoothly and reliably. They comply with the newest international standards and are tested by independent institutes. There are numerous connection options available for more security and additional features for added convenience. The sliding gate operators are ideal both for residential properties and industrial door/gate systems. Slide Gate Operators are Most Commonly Used for commercial gate automation systems. However, Slide Gates are an excellent choice for residential driveway gate automation when the site has steep grades prohibiting the use of a swing gate, or other site restrictions. Slide Gates use V-groove wheels on a track and gate roller guides that are used to guide the gate and keep it upright. A mooring point, also called a gate catcher, is located on the opposite post to stabilize the gate in the closed position. There are two types of Slide Gate Opener Installations; Front Mount (Standard) and Rear Mount (End-Of-Track). With a Standard Installation, the gate operator is mounted by the gate opening with the chain visible on the inside bottom of the gate. The Rear Mount or “End-Of-Track” installation requires slightly more work and additional chain. The advantage to a Rear Mounted installation is the operator and chain are out of sight which is much more visually appealing. Front & Rear Slide Operator Installation Comparison.
