Metal Security Gates

Sliding Gates

Sliding gates, as the name suggest operate with either cantilever or tracked system where the gate slides to open and close. This gate automation is ideal for applications where there is not sufficient room for a swing gate to open into or out of a space or where higher security is required.

There are two types of operations for sliding gates, Cantilever gate is counterbalanced and runs smoothly on nylon wheels and can function on ground that is not level. An alternative to cantilever sliding gates is tracked sliding gates, tracked sliding gates can work over a larger opening widths and have a lower profile allowing the gate to running along a track set in level ground.

Jacksons automated gates and barriers meet with the essential health and safety requirements and are CE marked as required by law. Additionally, the products are designed and engineered to exceed the standards set out in BS EN 12978 and BS EN 12453 in relation to gate safety.
