Sliding Gates

A gate solution for creating a more usable space

Sliding gates are ideal for applications where there is insufficient room for swing gates to open into and where higher security is required. Even where ground is not level, cantilever sliding gates run smoothly on nylon wheels, making them surprisingly quiet.

An alternative to cantilever sliding gates is tracked sliding gates, the advantage is that they can span larger opening widths and have a lower profile from the ground, with the gate 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.
