Cantilever Gates

There are many factors that go into creating the ideal fence for your property and needs. A key element you might not immediately think of: what kind of gate will work best? A gate, after all, is essential for providing an entrance and exit to your property. On many commercial properties, a cantilever gate will offer the best mix of function, convenience, and security.

Access Your Property With a Cantilever Gate

A cantilever gate is a unique type of sliding gate. It does not roll on the ground: instead, it moves via rollers running along the top and inside of the fence, with wheels attached to two vertical support posts. Those posts are typically spaced apart at a length equal to half the length of the gate opening.

The specialized construction of a cantilever gate offers several advantages over other styles.

  • They are versatile. The wheels of a cantilever gate are not on the ground. That means its function doesn't rely on a smooth, flat surface. If your property is surrounded by grass, gravel, obstructions, or is uneven or steeply inclined, a cantilever gate is likely your best choice.
  • They use less space. As a cantilever gate slides open parallel to the fence, it doesn't require as vast an amount of room to open as a typical gate. If your fence is close to a building or another obstruction, the cantilever gate will allow an easy and wide opening in the fence without having to supply a large clear space for the fence to move through.
  • They add more security. The construction of a cantilever gate makes them heavy and difficult to lift. This makes them an ideal choice to add dependable security to your commercial property.
  • They require less maintenance. A swing gate hinge can degrade and require frequent greasing to maintain its moveability. The nylon-covered rollers that typically go on a cantilever gate, though, will not require greasing and will not rust. Even better, because the gate doesn't swing open, accessing your property to clear obstructions like snow or debris after a storm is easier with a cantilever gate.
