Sliding Gate ApplicationsDeciding to use a sliding gate rather than hinged gate has rather more to do with factors such as the level of security needed, size of the opening the gate will fill, and whether or not the access roadway the gate passes over is level or on a slope, than the broad type of premises the gate might protect. For more information on all these issues go to Why have sliding gates?
That said, it's inevitable that certain property types will always have a level of security requirement that means sliding gates are more suitable. These sliding gate applications would include:
- Schools (though obviously very much dependent on area)
- Data Centres
- Industrial properties
- Distribution centres
- Delivery areas for retail outlets (in particular supermarkets and other retailers on out-of-town developments)
- Docks and ports
- Police Stations
- Prisons and Young Offender Institutions
- Power Stations
- Waste disposal and recycling plants (in particular those processing sensitive materials such as that from hospitals) Print works (in particular those producing high value product such as currency and stamps, or sensitive / time critical material such as daily press)
- Military bases
- Water processing plants
- Sewage works
