Cantilever Gates


Cantilever Gates

If you are looking for a sliding gate that is not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, our Cantilever Gates offer a unique design and a range of benefits over traditional swinging gates.

What Are Cantilever Gates?

Cantilever gates are essentially a type of sliding gate that operates by sliding horizontally along a track, which is located on the ground beside the gate opening.

Unlike traditional sliding gates, cantilever gates are supported and balanced by a counterbalance system, which is installed on the opposite side of the gate opening.
This system allows the gate to move smoothly and evenly, without the need for a lower track.

Cantilever sliding gates are typically used in situations whereby traditional sliding gates would not be feasible, such as in areas with uneven, bumpy or sloping ground, or where the installation of a lower track would be difficult or near impossible.

These types of gates are more commonly used in commercial and industrial settings, but can also be used in residential applications where a high degree of security is required.

    Benefits of Cantilever Gates

    There is a range of benefits to opt for a cantilever gate as opposed to a traditional gate. Cantilever gates are a popular choice, not only for homeowners, but also businesses, and industrial properties - primarily due to their smooth operation and minimal maintenance requirements.

    Unlike traditional swinging gates, our cantilever gates can slide open and closed without a track, eliminating the need for unsightly gate hinges.

    • For industrial or domestic applications
    • No track required for gate to slide on
    • Best option for uneven ground, over grass or even water
    • Quieter than track systems
    • Cantilever sliding gates are perfect for light industry and residential uses

      We purchased a double swing Hamptons motorised gate and could not be happier with the quality, design and workmanship. The gate was made to measure and was ready for collection within 2 weeks. The service was outstanding. Thank you Fencing and Gate Centre for making us such happy customers. We highly recommend t your company to anyone looking for a great quality gate and fence.

      We had a great experience in getting a new gate sorted. We were not too sure what direction to go, but the staff were extremely helpful in helping us achieve our goals.
