Sliding / Swing Gates

Sliding / Swing Gates

Gates don’t have to be simply functional or simply beautiful – they can be both!

 

Sliding gates

Sliding gates can come in one of two types. One of these can be without a ground track, which is known as a Cantilever gate, operating with a system that keeps the gate counterbalanced as it slides. The other option is a wheel-on-track system, where the track is set in concrete and the wheels run along it allowing the gate to move across the opening.

Sliding gates are the most common choice when other gate installations aren’t possible – for example, if you have limited space and rough or sloping ground. A sliding gate might be the way to go, as they do not open inwards or outwards, but rather slide along sideways.

These are available either as manual or automated gates.

There are many benefits to having a sliding gate installed, including an increase in security, strength against a high wind load and not to mention their elegance. Sliding gates can be automated which is of course ideal for when the weather outside your vehicle is unpleasant as you won’t need to exit the vehicle to open the gate.

Swing Gates

Swing gates can be either manually operated or automated to suit your requirements. Swing gates are excellent for safeguarding your garden – whether that means keeping intruders out or keeping children and pets in.

Swing gates are easy to install, normally hung from metal free standing posts or on brick piers. They look both elegant and welcoming to your property. Swing gate designs can be adapted to be perfect for all sorts of properties, from modern homes to period homes.

We know that it can be difficult to work out which gate is best for your property, so here at Fusion Design and Fabrication, we can help you to visualise exactly what our sliding or swing gates will look like with our computer aided design (CAD) program. Once we have discussed your ideas with you in detail, and you have accepted our written quote, we will further work on your design, sending a copy of this to you to ensure that you are entirely happy before work commences. We can create 3D models which you can view, rotate, and even see how it will look on your property with a photo overlay. This means that you can see your vision and we can work with you to ensure the design fits your exact requirements.

From your imagination to installation, we are pleased to work with you to bring your ideas to fruition.
