The Gate Services cantilevered sliding gate system is based on the principles of counter balancing. These systems are designed and engineered to Gate Services exacting calculations and standards with a strong emphasis on safety. Each Gate Services slide gate system comprises the following important mechanical modules. The modules consist of the gate main support tower, the gate leaf, the gate back rail and the end post. When bolted together, the main tower and back rail form the main support and rolling platform for the gate leaf. The gate leaf is then attached to this platform with two back- check plate roller sets. The roller sets, when bolted on, lock the sliding gate leaf within the confines of the gate back rail. The gate system is then bolted to a concrete footing that has been engineered to provide adequate weight to counter- balance the gate system. The combination of gate design and concrete footing allows the gate to roll out over the relevant road opening, without tipping or sagging, basically traveling in free air. Up to 10 metre road widths (for a single gate) are standard within our product range. A large custom make gate can be up to 15 metres long. The Gated slide gate system needs no road rails, tracks or overhead supports. Each Gate Services slide gate is designed with automation features as standard. An industrial three-phase drive motor, PLC control logic, frequency invertor and proximity sensors are some of the highly advanced products used in Gate Services product range. Each Gate Services PLC system allows for special features and auxiliary equipment to be added, this without major parts redundancy. e.g. traffic light controls, card access readers. Our main support and rolling platform are well balanced and provides smooth and efficient operations. Our standard cantilevered designs operate at variable speeds. These are adjustable to a maximum of 800mm per second of gate travel. The Gate Services slide gate system is not affected by road crowns, kerbs or falls for drainage in roads. All associated works to install a Gate Services slide gate system are performed off to the side of the relevant road, thereby avoiding closures, which can be inconvenient and costly to your business. The Gate Services cantilever sliding gate system has no equal in the industrial marketplace. Each system will perform reliably all day, every day. At Gate services, we believe safety should not be an option. That is why our systems have been fully risk assessed to contemporary OH&S standards by an independent authority. Each Gate Services cantilevered sliding gate system has an extensive array of safety devices and features which form part of our standard product offering. Our wealth of knowledge and experience gained over the years has enabled Gate Services to evolve and develop this premium product to suit a variety of ever- changing environments. The cantilevered gate systems, as developed by Gate Services, are purpose- built for the industrial marketplace. The key consideration is safety of operation without compromise to security. High levels of performance, aesthetically pleasing design and unrivalled reliability are also a feature. The high performance and advanced technology built into the Gate Services slide gate will ensure reliable operation for many years to come. Gate Services boasts a large end- user customer base and continues to provide product and services to Australian corporations.
