We are committed to designing and installing world class quality gates that are built tough and will stand the test of time. Contact us today to book a measure and quote
The biggest advantage of a sliding gate is that it opens behind the front boundary and therefore does not limit the space within the property. Sloping ground is normally not a problem as we can fabricate the gate with a sloping bottom rail to allow for the slope. However the slope cannot vary across the extent of the gate. In general, most of our sliding gate frames are similar in fabrication with the varying styles and designs added as the gate is made. Larger gates will require an engineering upgrade but most times these are not visually obvious; thicker wall materials or larger framing and sometimes vertical bracing. In situations where there is no option for a personnel gate we can offer the option of a pedestrian gate built into the slider. The options are endless.
Each gate needs a track to slide on. Depending on the driveway we may be able to bolt down directly to the paving. Otherwise we will need to lift the paving to dig a trench and set the track into a concrete strip footing which does add to the overall cost. We can assess this with a site visit and give a quotation while there.
We are sensitive to the fact that a sliding gate must be both functional and attractive and are proud to supply what we consider to be the best gates on the market.
All our pricing is based on a quality product with quality fittings. Can it be done cheaper? Some companies compromise quality by using cheaper fittings, lighter gauge materials and inferior welding methods. During our many years of fabrication we have tried them all and settled on what we consider to be an excellent quality without being overly extravagant. It costs very little extra to do the job properly and get yourself many years of reliable operation
