Aluminum Slide Gate

For my Aluminum Slide Gate and fencing needs I was truly unsure which direction to go. There were so many options, and with it being the first time I considered or made this type of purchase I wasn’t sure which direction to head product wise. After a lot of product research and consideration I made the very best decision I could possibly make for the needs of my business and property; I purchased an aluminum slide gate.

Aluminum slide gates are the perfect entrance and exit option for any property, home or business, which offers the protection of solid, sturdy aluminum gating while combining it with the slide gate, providing quick, easy access to the largest of vehicles. My business sees a lot of shipping and delivery, most of the delivery involving large semi-trucks. Before I finally got my aluminum slide gate delivery trucks got backed up and my fencing got damaged often. Now those issues are all a thing of the past.

Aluminum slide gates are supported upon a heavy-duty track constructed entirely of aluminum but supported by ‘gate trucks’. These are bolted to ‘hanger’ brackets which are bolted to posts. This mounting keeps the bottom of the aluminum slide gate completely level, eliminating the dragging, damage, and extra work which comes with your typical gate entry. This structural design allows the gate to slide open and closed easily; no more dirt or debris in the tracks and no pinch-points to hinder fluidity of movement.

During my research I found there are three different types of aluminum slide gate frames:

Heavy-duty, single track (gates up to 30 feet wide)

These are for the smallest sliding gate entries and provide excellent strength and flow of motion in gate movement.

Structural double-track (gates up to 40 feet wide)

This frame design is ultra-tough, having been fortified through the welding process providing double-track stability and smooth sliding action

Box frame (gates up to 60 feet wide)

These are made for particularly broad gateways, and are resistant to the ‘sagging’ which can occur with similar fence types.

For the needs of my business I went with the box frame, which was the ideal choice for my aluminum slide gate. Now I have completely eliminated the potential for simple damage which perpetuates out of control, and I have managed to improve the level of efficiency in my shipping and receiving department. No more long lines or men jumping out of their trucks to secure the gate; my new aluminum slide gate works wonders, and I expect it to for years to come.

Check out you aluminum slide gate options and purchase the appropriate type for your needs today. You won’t regret your decision for a second!
