Home > Companies > Eagle Automation Systems Ltd > Cantilever Sliding Gates

The Eagle cantilever sliding gate is designed to suit either an industry standard motor and drive or a bespoke Eagle PLC control system. The cantilever gate allows the system to open and close without the need of a track, thus eliminating any height restrictions and large tracks in the road.


On entrance activation, the sliding gate opens in a quick but safe sliding action. On approaching the gate from the inside, a vehicle will drive over an internal safety/exit loop. Traffic lights, if installed, indicate the gates are about to move and go green when safe to enter or exit. The gate stays open and then closes after all the safety devices are clear and/or after a set time. An anti tail-gating function can be enabled to control traffic flow.


  • Low maintenance with minimal moving parts.
  • Smooth and quiet operation.
  • Trackless design, no height restrictions and lower maintenance.
  • Very secure, with an opening and closing speed of 150 mm/ second or a high speed unit available at 400 mm/ second.
  • Zinc phosphate and powder coated finish.
