Sliding Gates

Sliding gates are manufactured in two ways, Tracked method, and Cantilever method. At Middleton Forge we manufacture and install both of these types of gate.

Tracked method is basically a wheeled gate, held in the vertical position by a post, but slides along a steel track set into concrete.

Cantilever method is a gate with a channel welded to the bottom of the frame. By using a series of guides and balancing, this method avoids the need for any ground tracking and the additional maintenance associated.

Middleton Forge manufacture and install a wide range of sliding gates. They are designed to suit your individual requirements. While perfect for heavy industry, we have also carried out installations on many domestic properties and smaller commercial installations.
