Wooden Sliding Gates

timber wooden sliding gate driveway gates for the home

Wooden automatic sliding gates not only look great but also provide a practical solution for restricted parking areas or where the driveway slopes thus preventing swing gates from opening inwards.

Wooden sliding gates can meet several other criteria including privacy and increased security whilst being less vunerable to wind loading situations. The fact they slide into a steel channel holding the gate secure when closed offers maximum resistance to any attempted forced entry.

Sliding gates only require one motor saving a great deal of time and expense on installation with only one motor to control and maintain over the years. This motor is normally an electromechanical drive with a steel rack and pinion along the bottom inside edge of the gate panel.


Our wooden sliding gates are manufactured in Northamptonshire to the highest standard by skilled craftsmen using traditional hand made construction Oak sliding gate in Ecton Villagemethods.

In addition to this, AGD Systems supplies and installs the top steel guide rail and bottom rail/member to which the drive racking and rolling gear are assembled. We will carry out all the groundwork, steelwork, electrics and electronics if required to provide a reliable gate system for years of trouble free use.

Finish Treatment

We always include 2 to 3 coats of good quality finish stain such as Sikkens or Sadolin to both side of the gate panel in a choice of standard colours of which there are many to select from.

Colours available include Light Oak, Medium Oak, Dark Oak, Burma Teak, African Walnut, Jacobean Walnut, Dark Palisander and EbonyInside view of softwood sliding timber gate.

It is also possible to apply oil such as Danish or Teak Oil, please bear in mind that oiled finishes may require regular applications if a high quality finish is to be maintained.

Special colours are available upon request – please supply the RAL or BS colour reference number/description.

Design Style

There are traditional and contemporary design styles available, but if you are looking for that something special – let us know – we specialise in bespoke designs.

Wood Species

Our wooden gates are made from joinery grade hardwood and softwood species, sourced from sustainable certificated sources.

- West African Mahogany - hardwood
- Idigbo – hardwood
- Iroko – hardwood
- Cedarwood
- Scandinavian Redwood - softwood

We usually recommend hardwoods for timber sliding gates as these are best in providing dimensional stability, good resistance to rot and overall longevity when regularly maintained.
