If there is limited space or the driveway entrance turns sharply to the right or the left, and a wing type gate would form an obstruction to the turning vehicle, then an electric sliding gate is the ideal solution.
The CAME range of electric sliding gate operators has a machine for every size of gate. Residential gates can be opened with the 'BX' or 'BXE' machines and commercial gateways with the 'BK' range or the 'BY 3500' series. The robust and reliable rack and pinion method of operation is very straightforward and can be used on metal or wooden gates.
The sophisticated electronic control panel can be programmed to accommodate timed auto-closure and partial opening to allow just pedestrian access and can accept wired low voltage signalling from the whole range of CAME accessories.
The installation of an electric sliding gate system is a little more involved than any other type of electric gate as it has to have more civil engineering done at the initial stage, but once the correct ground track and/or cantilever roller frames are installed, then the installation follows the same format as with other types of electric gates, continuing with the mechanical engineering stage of gate fabrication and gate mounting, followed by the final stage of electrical fixing and commissioning.
All CAME Approved Installers are qualified and available to survey your gateway to recommend which sliding gate motor and gate will suit best your individual requirement.
