SLIDING GATES AND ITS ADVANTAGES
According to our experience as technicians on site 24 hours a day, the sliding gates are slowly replacing the swing gates in most industrial and business premises. This is due to space and operational credibility. With a swing gate installed, it usually needs a lot of space to operate. .
Remember with a sliding gate, it is also ideal to have gate automation, for security and convenience reasons. In South Africa most properties will have a sliding gate in place as a means of access control. This entitles you to stop intruders. The sliding gates are made of a welded steel structure as per requirement and may be operated by an electro-mechanical or hydraulic motor, with facility of manual override. Sliding Garage doors come in different materials, such as wood, steel, and aluminum garage doors. A sliding gate is very convenient at a point whereby a number of vehicles can fit in and out at the same time during motion. A great advantage in using a sliding gate is the fact that when the road surface is inclined upwards, towards the inner or outer side, the sliding gate will open only outwards. They are also cantilevered, meaning the use of rails is minimized and helps cover uneven surfaces.
Sliding gates have a sensor control system and the dangers of you or your vehicle being harmed is safe. They are also safer to use and maintain. It is also difficult to operate a sliding gate manually unlike the swing gate. In other words you cant open it manually easier than a swing.
