Automatic Sliding Gates

Powersafe_44Powersafe supply and install automatic sliding gates up to 18m , we supply two types of gates based on customer requirements, Ground Track and Cantilever. 

Our systems can be provide galvanized or powered coated, we can also work with our customers to provide the desired infill to fit in with the aesthetics of site, this could be:

  • Palisade
  • Bar infill
  • Wooden infill
  • Solid Infill
  • Ornate infill

We also provide security gate toppings including barbed wire & razor barb.

Both gate types can also be provided as a manual system if required.

Ground Track

Grountrack gates are suitable in areas where the run back area is restricted; they provide the same level of security as cantilever gates but without the need of extra counter balancing on the gate leaf.

The gate is held upright using gate guide rollers; these are positioned at the top of the gates to provide stability for the gate operation.

The gate has opening and closing catchers at each end of the gate to prevent the gate from sliding of the gate wheel assemblies, the gate also has support wheels at both ends to allow the gate to smoothly engage into the catcher. 

The gate is automated by using a rack and pinion system; the motors used are manufactured by the leading manufacturers within the gate automation industry and engage on to a gate rack welded to the secure side of the gate.

Note: All automatic gates must comply with the current European safety legislation and a risk assessment will be carried out to ensure the gate installation complies; most gate installation will have a number of safety devices to ensure they comply.

Examples of these devices are:

  • Safety Edges 
  • Photo electric safety beams
  • Induction loops
  • Laser scanners
  • Hinge protectors
  • Emergency stop buttons and warning beacons

Cantilever

Cantilever sliding gates supply the same level of security as ground track gates but do not require a ground track, this means the gate can be installed in areas where the roadway is uneven, busy or where minimum disruption is required during installation.

The other difference with a cantilever gate is the length, the gates are usually 1/3 longer than your standard ground track gate to allow effective counter balance of the gate when opening and closing.

The cantilever gate uses a GIPI structural graded steel (S235) guide; this allows the gate carriage to slide within the guide to allow smooth operating movement.

The gate is held upright using gate guide rollers; these are positioned at the top of the gates to provide stability for the gate operation.

The gate has opening and closing catchers at each end of the gate to prevent the gate from sliding of the gate wheel assemblies, the gate also has support wheels at both ends to allow the gate to smoothly engage into the catcher.
