An electric sliding gate will often offer a solution where a vehicle driveway has restrictive dimensions or has to be approached at an angle.
Tracked and trackless (cantilever) sliding gates can be produced using timber or steel, either to look like a traditional pair of gates, or to a more contemporary design. It is generally recommended that timber sliding gates be fitted with a steel frame to prevent any movement in the timber from altering the tolerances between the gate and the sliding gate motor and track.
A trackless, cantilever gate is required to be approximately 30% wider than the entrance width in order to balance the gate panel securely on the cantilever system.
The smooth action of an automatic sliding gate means the sliding gate motor has a mechanically simple task running the gate back and forth and therefore offers great relaibility.
Beninca Automation offer a range of quiet and reliable sliding gate motors to suit all types of sliding gates from a few hundred kilos to over 3 tonnes.
