Automated Sliding Gate Installation and Repair

If you’re looking for the most innovative design in automatic sliding house gates, then we have the perfect selection for you. Electric cantilever sliding gates are by far the most popular in our automatic sliding gates UK range. Our sliding gates are made to measure and manufactured with no restriction to the length or height, meaning that they’re ideal for including as part of your residential or commercial security strategy. Without the need of an unsightly track in the floor, the unique cantilever system delivers maximum security whist maintaining the pleasing aesthetics.

Automated sliding gates can be extremely dangerous if not correctly fitted. Every install is different with a different number of safety edges required. East Coast Gates ensure all engineers are trained to the highest standards in the latest health and safety legislation, giving you complete peace of mind that you’ve chosen the top level of security for your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Of course, as long as the driveway does not slope across (so the gate is not moving up and down a hill during travel) and you have enough room for the gate to open into, then a sliding gate is a great option if you have limited space on your driveway.

We install various safety devices on and around the gate, to protect both pedestrians and vehicles moving in and out of the gateway. Safety photocells and safety loops will stop the gates closing on vehicles (if you’re within the detection area) and safe edges stop and reverse the gate upon detection of an obstacle. Our engineers will explain how the system fully works on our handovers and show you where the detection areas are.

The narrower the entrance, the harder it is to negotiate. Whatever the width, we can design a solution to fit between the narrowest of entrances; wide enough for a single car or up to a large industrial entrance for HGVs to pass side by side. Most domestic driveways or entrances are about 10-12 feet (3m – 3.5m) wide. This is fine for most types of swing gates.

As gateways get wider, the weight and leverage applied to the support and moving mechanisms increases. This can effect the types of materials used to make the gates and the types of automation fitted. Generally, wider swing gates tend to be made from metal or aluminium rather then wood. Very wide gateways (i.e. 25 feet or more) usually have sliding gates fitted that can cope easily with the increased weights.

It depends on the project; we have a currently have lead time of 4-6 weeks on all new installations.
