Aluminium sliding gates are a very cost effective way of securing your front boundary while still providing ease of access to your premises. Automatic gates have also become a very smart way of adding value to your home, there are a myriad of designs to choose from, the options and colours are almost endless.
There are a few requirements to keep in mind when planning the construction of your new front fence, if you driveway opening is 4 metres wide, you will need another 4.5m to accommodate the sliding gate and the tail that carries the motor rack when the sliding gate is in the open position.
In this scenario, it is also a good idea to have the pedestrian gate at least 4.5m from the edge of the sliding gate column as it is not ideal to have a track running past an aluminium pedestrian gate, someone inadvertently leaves the pedestrian gate open and the sliding gate will knock it off its hinges.
These days powder coated aluminium driveway gates are a very reliable option, there is a large variety of electric motor options available including 240 volt, 24 volt and Solar powered, some with battery backup in case of blackout.
Aluminium sliding gates go under a number of different names:
- Sliding gate
- Driveway gate
- Remote control gate
- Roller gate
- Electric gate
- Automatic gate
- Solar gate
There are numerous add on options for the electronic side of driveway gates:

- Remote control entry and exit
- Loop detector exit
- PE Beam
- Digital pad entry and exit
