Why are commercial automatic sliding gates so popular?

One of the many reasons why automatic sliding gates are so popular for commercial premises is that they do not take up much space. This is because of the linear way they open and close.

This is great for factories or other types of commercial premises that do not have much space. It means you do not lose valuable car parking space. This would happen with other types of fences.

Automatic sliding gates are also great for security. The irreversibly geared motors that automatic sliding gates have make it extremely difficult for them to be forced open. This makes a very good deterrent and will help to protect your property.

In addition, only having one gate makes it much harder to push open. This compares to swing gates where there are at least two gates.

Compared to other styles of gates available, commercial sliding 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. This means you are sure to find the the right automatic sliding gate that fits the style of your factory, warehouse, school or other type of commercial property.

What is the difference between track and cantilever commercial automatic sliding gates?

The track commercial automatic sliding gate is mostly used when there is limited space. This is especially true if there is a steep incline.  Track commercial sliding gates use a track system where the wheels of the sliding gate run on a metal track. The track is itself is bolted down into the concrete.

It is usually less expensive to install a track system as the gate from does not have to be as strong and rigid. As well, track automatic sliding gates will normally roll more easily. This means a smaller motor can be used.

Cantilever commercial automatic sliding gates are normally used when there are uneven surfaces. It is also great when there is a high level of traffic. In addition, it is suitable if commercial machinery, including forklifts, need to go in and out of the gate.

This type of gate uses a counter balance for support. It does not use a track, and does not require a leading edge roller to support the weight of the gate.

Along with being great for uneven driveways, cantilever gates are also more secure.  This is because cantilever gates cannot be lifted. This is because track automatic sliding gates can be lifted off their tracks.
