Automated Gate Servicing

Track sliding gates require more maintenance than cantilevered options due to an inherent part of the sliding track being exposed and driven over regularly. When providing a maintenance and service contract for your gate installation IQ Gates will take this into account to ensure that the tracks are checked regularly.

Advantages of a Track Sliding Gate

IQ Gates can offer automated track sliding gates for very wide openings to fit all requirements with a more minimal structural supports than with a cantilevered sliding gate, this means this type of gate is also one of the easiest to install and often more cost effective than cantilevered option.
