Automatic Cantilever Gates

There are many benefits in installing an automatic cantilever gate for your commercial or industrial property. They are similar to sliding gates but there is no track. This means it is easier for vehicles to enter and exit.  In particular, they are suited for commercial machinery, including forklifts to get in and out.

Cantilever gates use a counter balance for support. This means that they do not use a track and as a result do not require a leading edge roller to support the weight of the gate.

Along with being great for uneven driveways and rough surfaces, cantilever gates are also more secure as the sliding gate cannot be lifted off its tracks – as there are none.

We can install your automatic cantilever gate when we install your new industrial fence. Alternatively, we can install your cantilever gate to an existing fence.

In both cases we will match the style of the gate to the fence. We can even fit remote units to most existing commercial gate types.

At JFG Commercial and Industrial Fencing we will install an automatic cantilever sliding gate to suit your specific needs. In fact cantilever sliding gates can be easier to install than more traditional track sliding gates. However, you need to make sure that you get the foundations right. This includes getting the calculations correct, by taking into account things like the weight of the gate and the width that it needs to open

By installing a cantilever gate that is designed for commercial purposes you know it will withstand the high traffic of all sorts of vehicles.

Why are automatic cantilever gates so popular?

One of the many reasons why automatic cantilever gates are so popular for commercial premises is that they are very versatile. Because the gate does not touch the ground, they can be installed over uneven ground, paving, gravel or even grass.

Also, as there are no wheels running over a track, there is no danger of debris or dirt getting caught in the wheels and causing the gate to get stuck. As a result, there is often less maintenance required for a automatic cantilever gate.

As with automatic sliding gates using tracks, a minimum of space is needed for your cantilever gate. This is because the gate slides across, rather than swinging outwards. This is great for factories and other types of commercial premises that do not have much space. It means you do not lose valuable car parking space.

Automatic cantilever gates are also great for security. It is harder for cantilever gates to be forced open from the  outside. This is because they do not have a clear opening point that can be pressured.

Compared to other styles of gates available, commercial automatic cantilever gates are very durable. That means you can rely on them year after year.  You won’t have to worry about them breaking down or even rotting (in the case of wooden fences and gates).

Automatic sliding gates provide an inviting look to your commercial property. This is especially true as there are many styles and colours to choose from. It also means you can easily match your automatic cantilever gate to either an existing commercial fence or a new one.

The length of your gate can match your requirements. For example, if you need a wide clearance for trucks or other large vehicles then you can have a automatic cantilever gate of up to 7.5 metres.

Automatic cantilver gates come in a range of heights. Usually the gate is higher if a greater level of security is required. The range of standard heights are 900 mm, 1200 mm, 1500 mm, 1800mm and 2100 mm.

There is a large range of styles to choose from. These include flat top, spikes and rod top. Most cantilever sliding gates are black.
