Sliding Gate Motors
These gate and openers are ideal if
space within the driveway is limited,
and also if there is any uneven ground or driveway sloping which will restrict the opening
of normal swing gates.
They also have an advantage of maximising the overall drive through width,
especially useful if the driveway is narrow.
If you are looking for a wooden
sliding gate to be automated,
it is recommended that a steel frame chassis be made and then clad with timber.
This allows the gate mechanism and motor to be fixed into the steel box section
(rather than just timber alone which can move or deteriorate) at the fixing points,
giving a longer life expectancy to the system.
