Slide gates are mainly used with pedestrian barriers but are compatible with most barrier systems by using an interface post. They can also be used as a stand alone gate. The gates are ideal for light vehicle access. The standard sizes are 1000mm, 1500mm and 2000mm although any size is available up to 2000mm. They can be installed in pairs to give openings to a maximum of 4000mm.
Applications and Benefits
Slide Gates are robust gates ideal for vehicle entry and exit into areas. They are a lot more robust than swing gates. These gates require room for approximately double the gap entry so the gate can slide back into its self. Monkey tail bolts can be used to secure gates in and open or closed position. Gate locks are also available.
“It is an unusual product, in as much as it does what its technical literature says it will!!”
