Flat Top Slide Gate
Ornamental cantilever gates are an excellent choice for providing a classy high profile entrance to any home or business. Ornamental gates use vertical pickets that are closely spaced to provide real security and appeal. Each gate is coated to provide a top-notch finish. Available in our standard manufactured styles or customized to your special design, a cantilever gate's overall length is usually one and a half the distance of the opening. So, if you have a 30’ opening; your gate is 45’ overall. You must account for this space along the fence where the gate stores. Aluminum ornamental cantilever gates use an aluminum square frame with an extruded track at the top. Trucks or trolleys are installed so that the trucks run inside the track to support the gate from the support posts. At the bottom, there are two guide wheels that keep the gate plumb and centered. Steel cantilever gates are very reliable and economic. Aluminum cantilever gates are definitely lighter, the rollers are enclosed and a great platform for an ornamental look. The enclosed track system is a much smoother operation during snow and ice storms. Our flat top design provides a smooth look to the eye as the top of the gate flows uninterrupted to blend with existing fencing, columns or home. *Please note that the gate picture represents a custom gate.
