At fencing Dandenong, we provide an excellent range of sliding gates. We can manufacture them to suit your current fencing or we can manufacture and install a fencing solution for you too! Sliding gates come in a range of different varieties. We construct and install standard sliding gates, tapered gates, top hung gates, cantilevered gates, and double sliding gates. We can assess your access areas and establish the best style for your home or business.
Single sliding gates much like single swing gates are a single panel of material constructed out of aluminium or steel. Unlike swing gates, we install runs into the ground for the gate to slide along. These gates are ideal for high-security areas as they are extremely secure due to their mechanism. If you have a large access point or driveway we can usually still use just one panel and install a single sliding gate. This is more favourable than the need to install 2 single swing gates as we would only require 1 motor to operate the system whereas for the double swing option we would require 2 motors.
Double sliding gates are more appropriate for far larger openings. They also operate faster than regular single sliding mechanisms as there are 2 motors pushing each panel. Double sliders are installed using the same run as single sliders.
Tapered gates are another variety of sliding gate. We would only install these in an instance where we are dealing with an uneven or tapered surface. This option won't affect the look and style of your gate and will still be operating using a sliding mechanism.
For commercial buildings like apartment complexes and underground shopping centre carparks, we recommend our top-hung sliding gates. They are still operated using a motor and the same concept as regular sliding mechanisms however the runs are located at the top of the gate and are installed onto the ceiling area. This type of product is extremely secure due to the extremely small gaps underneath between the top and bottom of the gate making it very effective and also a great deterrent for intruders.
Our last sliding gate option is a cantilevered mechanism. The great function of this product is that it operates like a sliding gate however it doesn't require runs to be installed, instead it operate by moving along rollers located to the left or right of the gate. This is optimal for the automation of the gate as the only moving function is the motor which operates the rollers to open and close the panels. They are a fantastic option for uneven terrain as much like swing gates they require no runs to operate. As there is no contact with the ground or ceiling these gates run extremely quietly and efficiently making them perfect for high traffic areas.
We use either steel or aluminium to construct and manufacture all of our sliding gates. Our products come in a wide range of colours, shapes, and sizes and can be custom designed if required. The steel or aluminium is powder-coated making it very resistant to weather damage, corrosion and rust. They are built with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship to ensure a long-lasting, fantastic looking product. Our team can work with you to select a gate that matches the exterior of your home or business and can colour match to suit your existing fencing. If you don't already have existing fencing we can also design and install this for you. Our styles include tubular, picket, slats and timber look slats giving you a range of options to choose from. If you have a design in mind or want a custom made design we can also help. We can work from existing pictures you might have collected or we can design the product based on your description.
