Our ground track slide gates are the industry standard and are designed to roll on "V" Track angle iron welded to a steel strap with mounting holes which is then bolted to the driveway. The gate has "V" Wheels which roll along the track as the gate opens and closes.
The gate is held upright with either 2 or 4 roller guide posts. (2 for gates under 18' wide and 4 posts for longer gates) The posts are set in concrete on either side of the gate and pinch the gate top rail between rollers which are fastened to the posts.
Note: Because the gate panel moves past stationary posts, ASTM 2200 guidelines call for automated slide gates to have wire mesh attached for the prevention of reach through injuries. We recommend adding black chicken wire or some other suitable mesh to your gate during installation. (not provided)
Our unique system allows for beautiful arched driveway gates to slide across your driveway with ease. See our
slide gate styles. If you can not lay ground track across your driveway, consider our Cantilever Gate System as a solution.

Unique Easy Installation and Safety Features of our Sliding Gate System
Heavy Duty Rollers: The Amazing Slider Guide
The heavy duty roller fits between the gate and the guide posts..
V-Track The galvanized "V" Track can either be anchor-bolted to an existing driveway or set in concrete while pouring a new grade beam. The gate rolls open and closed on this track so it must be twice as long as the gap opening the gate is securing.
The Slider Frame Extension is what allows the Slider Guide to hold
the gate upright in the closed position. Non-reach-through wire
is attached to the back frame at the factory and cannot be removed.
A second wire mesh designed to be attached to main gate is supplied
with every gate for attachment on site by the installer.
: the gate design can be continued into this area.
Chain attach brackets Most slide gate openers are chain driven. Our system uses a bolt-on chain attach bracket which can be vertically adjusted to align with the chain from the opener. This facilitates the installation.
Heavy Duty Chain The heavy duty chain attaches to the adjustable chain attach bracket at each end of the gate and passes through the drive sprocket of the Gate Opener.
Catch Post For single leaf sliding gates, a Catch Post is recommended to add stability.
Built-in Gate Opener Platform The Amazing Slider Guide also features a mounting platform at the bottom for attaching the gate opener. This eliminates the need to pour a concrete pad for the opener, saving you time and money. The Amazing Slider Guide roller placement and gate opener platform placement are both adjustable vertically for use with various gate heights and for a trouble free installation.
