Northamptonshire is a large rural county with many working farms and farm complexes.

There are quite number issues to consider when specifying entrance gates for farm estates

Top of the list is security, reliability and safety. More and more working farms have diversified and now have multi user groups to consider such residential properties and small and large business units even camp sites, special events and so on.

Large sliding cantilever gates can provide a high level of security or convenience of use depending on the daily activity requirements, the gates can be specified to automatically open during business hours thus allowing free entry and access, however, out hours the gates can remain securely closed.

To enter or leave can be controlled by a variety of means such as giving out hand held transmitters, proximity fobs or pin numbers to authorised personnel, or else a voice only or voice/vision intercom can be installed.

As you can see this example of a cantilever  type sliding gate has been manufactured from large steel box section all fully welded and made in the style of a diamond braced farm gate to ensure it is in keeping with the agricultural environment, it has be pre-treated against corrosion and painted with green top coat. Its robust construction will put off even the most determined of ram raders!
