Sliding Gates are produced similar to swing gates, they look the same and are constructed in two halves, which bolt together on site. This makes them much easier to handle during delivery and installation. Also the longer a piece of timber, the larger possibility of ‘movement’ , therefore the wooden sliding gates made in this manner should have a longer life. For larger sliding gates, additional metalwork may need to be engineered to ensure the sliding gates work correctly, but this is in very extreme cases, Call Pete on 020 8054 7535 for more info.
