Electric Sliding & Rolling Security Gates
When security is your prime objective, a good automatic sliding gate or electric rolling gate is the way to go. These gates roll across a v-track, which is installed in the driveway and keeps the gate straight and stable. These are the types of gates used primarily by commercial properties, businesses, government facilities, utility companies, and a good portion of gated communities. Sliding gates don’t require the clearance that a swing gate does, and rest on wheels so that they don’t put a strain on hinges.
The right operator for you will be based on gate weight and rate of speed. For instance, an Elite Mega Slide gate operator is built for lighter loads like a residential driveway gate or a gate for a small business location. Its runs off a 24V DC motor and can support gates up to 1,00o lbs. and up to 32 ft. in length.
For a commercial application though you should really think of going with a thicker, stronger, more durable gate. That of course means heavier too! An Elite SL3000UL would be a good choice here, and it is available in a variety of models to satisfy variable conditions such as traffic load, temperature and emergency accessibility. Available with stronger motors to handle heavier gates as well.
