More About Tracked Sliding Gates
Tracked sliding gates run on a track laid into the road. The gate is fabricated with a strong beam at the bottom of the gate into which are set two bearing wheels.
These are mounted onto the rail which allows very heavy gate to roll backwards and forwards smoothly. This provides the opportunity for the gate design to be stronger and heavier, allowing the gate spans to be up 40 metres, and heights in excess of 6 metres.
This, when linked to the strong support frame or portals, provides a very high and secure sliding gate system. The area of clearance for a tracked sliding gate is somewhat less than that required for a cantilevered sliding gate, as the area for mounting the motor and frame may not need to exceed 1 metre.
This would give a total run back area of the gate opening, plus the metre for the gate support and motor. It would be essential that the running track be flat and level. Any incline would not only cause the motor to work harder than it may have been designed for, but also the potential safety risks, should it be necessary to operate the gate manually
