As humans, our primal instinct to protect our territory is still present and safeguarding our property is paramount for a feeling of safety. However, what happens when your gateway is too broad or steep? A swing gate design would get stuck or would not be strong enough for the extra-wide width. A Bi-bold gate may do the job, but if you haven’t got the clearance, you need something else. That’s why DC Gate Solutions design and install cantilever or rail sliding gates with sufficient access control. All our sliding gates are manual or automatically operated and conform to the highest safety regulations, giving you peace of mind, when you need it most.
“Save space with our sliding gate designs you can trust”
What is a cantilever gate?
Supported by rails that run along the inside of the fence structure, cantilever gates “hang” without the use of a track underneath for support. Due to their gravity-defying nature, cantilever gates require precision installation to ensure the correct balance and weight distribution is used to prevent breakdowns. Here at DC Gate Solutions, we have an expert team who has many years’ experience is cantilever construction.
- Uneven ground
- Small ground clearance areas (where a swing gate wouldn’t work)
- Land with steep inclines
- Gravel driveways
- Block paving
- Harsh weather environments
What is a rail gate?
Another design we specialise in is sliding gates with tracks. Unlike cantilever gates, a rail is implanted into the ground beneath the entrance to provide a track for it to run along. The gate is fitted with wheels which follow the track to prevent movement which can warp or damage the gates mechanism. At DC Gate Solutions, we understand that your gate needs to remain working long after installation which is why we are skilled in the installation of soak-aways and drainage solutions to prevent water damage to any moving parts or motors.
What access control options do you offer?
If you choose to have an automated gate, we have a wide range of access control methods to allow entry to give you that extra security that is required. Choose from a variety of fob, pin code, or remote operation.
