This is a very large tracked sliding gate fitted in a domestic situation. As you can see from the front and rear view photos the softwood vertical timber boards are actually fixed to a sub frame made from steel box section material.

The overall result is a very neat looking gate that provides excellent privacy and security.

The gate runs along a steel track that is set into the ground and is supported by two large steel posts, one with a guide roller positioned on the top guide rail and one with a slam latch to ensure that the gate cannot be lifted off the ground track.

The heavy duty sliding gate motor ensures a smooth and reliable operation.

AGD Systems has supplied and installed a number of these types of gates which the end user has finished off by adding the timber cladding to meet there own requirements.

Civil works and power requirements have be carried out by others.
