An automatic sliding cantilevered gate which is designed to control vehicle access whilst providing effective security measures on commercial and industrial premises. Secures widths up to 10 m and requires no track or support across the roadway. The gate leaf is supported by the main bottom beam which slides 100 mm above the road surface and the balance is provided by a unique enclosed 'runback track', which enables the gate to be fully projected across the roadway without tipping.

Manual operation is also available. A range of sliding security gates in various size, operation and accessory options. Compliant with BS EN 13849.


Designed for continuous and frequent use and requires no assembly work on site.
