North Wales Fencing Co. have installed several automated sliding gates for a variety of clients. We prefer and recommend a cantilevered gate rather than a slider on a track as those running on a track can be prone to getting jammed and have durability issues. A wide range of choices for access and egress can be used. The gates can be opened with a fob, a keypad, a timer or an induction loop where it senses a vehicle parked on the loop which opens the gate (normally used on exiting a site!).
We can offer a range of infills whether it be a vertical bar infill, mesh infill, palisade infill, or timber clad. For extra security we can add a ‘dragon’s teeth topping’ to deter climbing. These gates are ideal for sites set on steep inclines or where space is an issue where swing gates are not suited.
Not all sliding gates are automated, we also offer a manual slider where the gates can be opened easily by hand. This also carries less risk of injury compared to a swing gate especially on a windy site.
