IQ Gates can provide two different types of sliding gates with different automation mechanisms, these are a track based sliding gate or a cantilevered sliding gate. Cantilevered sliding gate designs are ideal for more contemporary driveway designs where a seamless base detail can be achieved through impressive automated gate engineering.

These are the most popular design choice due to the minimal and clean appearance that can be achieved when these gates are open as no tracks are visible on the floor. This automated mechanism requires an element of structural engineering by the technical team at IQ Gates for their design and successful operation.

An advantage for using a cantilevered automated mechanism for your gate is that the style of gate can be installed onto a driveway or entrance to a property without the need for a flat surface, making it perfect for sloped driveways or uneven grounds. These gates can also be installed without any disruption to the driveway and cannot be lifted, increasing and ensuring the security of the driveway and home.

Track based sliding gates are also available, this type of automated gate require more maintenance than cantilevered options due to part of the sliding track being exposed and driven over regularly. When the maintenance and service contract is made, IQ Gates take this into consideration to ensure that the tracks are checked regularly.

This type of gate can be created with a very wide opening to fit all requirements with a more minimal structural support than with a cantilevered sliding gate, making this one of the easiest gates to install as well as being more cost effective than cantilevered sliding gates. The gate operators integrated into these gates do not have to be as big if they are built on a flat surface due to the gate rolling much easier.

Which gate is more suitable for your building or driveway depends on technical and logistical factors which can be discussed to provide you with an incredible gate design that works perfectly for you.
