Product Overview

Our select range of heavy duty cant-lever sliding gates are manufactured in the Uk and have over a 25 year pedigree. Using heavy-duty steel box section designed to resist unauthorised entry to the protected premises.
Specifying a canti-lever gate over the more traditional tracked sliding gate provides the customer with significant benefits. They can span sloping or uneven roads, pass easily across waterways or railway tracks and in single leaf configurations they can be manufactured to suit road widths from 2.0m and 10.0m, and 1.0m to 3.0m high.

We also manufacture double leaf configurations which are popular for use in airports, quarries and ports. More information on our double leaf sliding gates can be found on the automatic double leaf gates page.

Our heavy duty automatic sliding gates have features which have been designed specifically to maintain reliability even in arduous and difficult environments.

The sliding gate leaf is manufactured as one constructional section. This minimizes the risk of damage to vehicles or people should a vehicle collide with the gate.

Our Heavy duty gates are CE marked for use in the European Union.
The gate offers an impressive travel speed at around 300mm per second, faster than most alternative products. Movement is monitored in both the open and closing routines. The chain driven custom drive solution continuously monitors the travelling gate. The gate will reverse and then stop should it encounter an object in its path.

Designed to fulfill simple installation, the free standing gantry makes it easy to lift the gate into position, in one operation. This reduces costs and offers speedy installation.


Box tube, Vertical Bar, Palisade and most mesh systems can be specified on our heavy duty gates. Due to safety legislation we provide all of our gates with a protection mesh installed behind any vertical uprights.
