Securafit design, manufacture and install Automated Sliding Gates, with each one being manufactured to order. Our gates can be manufactured to predetermined dimensions, or we can design bespoke gates with a site survey – considering the fall in the road, obstacles, and any other factor that makes that entrance unique.
Sliding gates are ideal for wide entrances, tight spaces and/ or rough terrain. The Sliding Gates can be manufactured to suit openings between 1m-20m wide, and designed in a range of styles and heights.
standard colours include :
- RAL 6005 Green
- RAL 9005 Black
Other colours are available upon request.
Securafit have a variety of infill options available. The two distinct categories are the ‘Railings’ range and the ‘Securamesh’ range. Check out our Fencing & Railings to learn more about the types of infill available.
Sliding Gate variations
Siding Gates be be placed in two distinct categories – Ground Track and Cantilever.
Ground Track Sliding gates consist of a Sliding gate with wheels on the bottom, that slide along a single track that is protruding out from the ground.
- shorter and more compact when compared to cantilever Sliding gates.
- Ground track subject to wear, tear, and debris – causing issues for Sliding gate.
Cantilever Sliding gates have a large track on the bottom of the gate, and a pair of Carriages secured to the ground, which roll back and forth internally to the track. Since the carriages are raised from the ground, the Sliding gate doesn’t come into contact with the ground, providing a ‘floating’ effect.
- Cantilever Gate does does not have a ground track – overcomes poor terrain
- Increased overall length of gate to accommodate cantilever design, typically 40-50% of the gate opening. Larger runback area required as a result.
Access control includes Intercoms, Keypads & Fob readers. Access control devices can be integrated will existing systems for fluent control of your entrances. Find out more from our Access Control page.
ANPR cameras are specifically designed to recognise verified registration plates on cars, and operate gates, Barriers and Bollards accordingly.
Ground loops are devices cut into the ground that detect the presence of a vehicle passing overhead. This sends a signal which can operate the gate automatically, allowing the vehicle to leave the site without interacting with any access control.
Thermoplastic Line markings can be used to denote pathways, road edges, parking spaces & instructions.
Adjacent fencing or railings
Many projects need matching fencing or railings to secure the site -We offer a wide range of railings and fencing in different sizes and styles. you can find out more on our fencing page.
Manual sliding gates can have a Lock deadlock with handle on the leading stile. alternatively, Automated Sliding Gates do not require locks as the motor has this functionality built in.
Both Cantilever & Ground Track Sliding gates can be fully automated.
We can also design gates to be Automation Ready – Manufactured & installed as a functioning manual gate whilst allowing for automation at a later date.
Please note: Automated Gates will require additional safety products to make the gates comply with the latest safety standards – you can find out more on our ‘Gate Safety’ page.
Shields, Signs & logos
Many of our bespoke gates need that extra touch to finish them – which can be done with a Shield, Sign or Logo – some examples include:
- Mild steel Lasercut plates (lettering, logos)
- Vinyl prints – versatile and durable
- Single or Split shield
- 3D logos
- Unique materials (Brass, Acrylic, stainless steel)
