Slide Gates, Track Slide Gates, and Box Slide Gates
Foster Fence offers several different slide gate designs, nearly all of which can be operated manually or by an automatic gate operator.
Cantilever slide gates are recommended when you want a gate to span an existing dirt or asphalt driveway. We use heavy-duty gate rollers made of graphite-impregnated nylon with permanently lubricated and sealed ball bearings that allow the gate to be moved with 60% less effort than a gate with cast-iron rollers. Cantilever slide gates do not use a ground track and can be installed over any surface.
Track Slide Gates:
Track slide gates are recommended when you want a gate to span a concrete driveway. Track slide gates are supported by four safety posts and ride along a V track fastened to a concrete surface. These gates are highly recommended if you plan to install a gate operator.
Box Slide Gates:
Box slide gates are recommended when you need a gate to span a very large opening. Box slide gates are supported by multiple safety posts and ride along two V tracks fastened to a concrete surface. These gates require an extensive amount of civil work in order to operate correctly.
