Madoors Cantilever Sliding Gate Madoors system , Cantilever Sliding Gate manufacturer . 2 years warranty . Cantilever Sliding Gateis an automatic sliding gate that come in variety of widths and heights to suit site requirements. The MAdoors cantilever sliding gates are manufactured from sections of sufficient strength to suit operating requirements which are dependent upon the gates opening width, height, type of infill (windloading/weight) and the level of security required.
The term, cantilever slide gate, may refer to any number of gates, from ornamental picket styles to functional chain link styles, from those that require cantilever rollers to those requiring gate tracks and trolleys. All cantilever slide gates will share certain characteristcs which differentiate themselves from other types of slide gates. Madoors's Cantilever slide gates are unique from other types of slide gates in their construction, hardware choices, and design.
Madoors System Cantilever slide gates are built larger than the gate opening they are designed to close, often as much as 50% larger than their respective openings. The idea here is to hang the gate on two or more mounting posts and have the gate suspend off these mounting posts into the gate opening to close. In general, no part of the gate comes in contact with the ground directly, or indirectly with any type of wheel. Instead, these slide gates 'cantilever' to close the opening. Cantilever construction allows for overhanging structures without external bracing. It is key that cantilever gate frame be constructed properly to help withstand the forces of gravity and wind. Intricate diagonal bracing and trusses are usually strategically welded in place to help prevent gate sag.
Advantages to madoors system cantilever slide gates
over other styles are numerous. Since no part of the gate comes in contact directly or indirectly with the ground, cantilever slide gates are easy to automate with gate operators. Gates can often very easily be installed perfectly level. Proper design, fabrication, and installation of a cantilever slide gate will reduce friction during operation and prolong the life of a gate operator. Gate hardware systems from a quality fence supply source will provide smooth operation and low maintenance. A cantilever slide gate features the ability to slide along the fence line without requiring any lateral space as swing type gates demand.
