Automatic & Electric Gates

Sloan's certified technicians specialize in the safe installation and maintenance of various types of Automated Gates, including Operated Sliding Gates and Bi-Folding Electric Gates.

Slide Gates

Slide Gates

Sliding gates are a highly sought-after choice for both residential and commercial properties due to their versatility. With various accessories available, electric sliding gates can be customized to suit a range of site conditions. These gates operate on a sliding V-track and can be installed either as a standard or shallow mount for added convenience.

• Reinforced designs for crash-ratings
• Available in chain link and ornamental
• Crash-Tested Models
• Electric or Hydraulic opening systems

Bi-Fold Gates

Bi-Fold Gates

Motorized Cantilever Gates are designed to operate without touching the ground and instead move along cantilever rollers, eliminating the need for a ground track. This feature makes them an ideal choice for applications where aesthetics or space is a concern, as well as pedestrian crossing points in underground parking lots. They offer a hassle-free alternative to traditional roller-sliding gates.

• K-Rated models
• Trackless, speed designs available
• Electric or Hydraulic opening systems

Swing Gates

Swing Gates

Electric swing gates are the most commonly used entryway gates. They are designed as hinged fence panels that operate like a door, swinging open and close. Unlike sliding or bi-folding gates, they require minimal maintenance as they have no wheels or tracks for debris to accumulate in. Additionally, they are easier to install and have a longer lifespan.

• K4, K8, and K12 Crash-Rated models
• Industrial and Commercial designs
• Electric or Hydraulic opening systems

Cantilever Gates

Cantilever Gates

Our Motorized Cantilever Gates don’t touch the ground and are held above the ground and move along cantilever rollers. Without a track on the ground, there is less fuss than with conventional roller-sliding gates. This makes them particularly appropriate for applications where aesthetics or space is important as well as for pedestrian crossing points in underground parking lots.
 
• Aluminum, Steel, or Chain Link
• Single or Double track configuration
• Crash-Tested Models
• Electric opening systems

Vertical Pivot Gates

Vertical Pivot Gates

Vertical Pivot Gates are the perfect solution for entrances with uneven ground or limited space. These gates have a small footprint and do not require as much space as traditional swing gates that swing in and out of your property. This gate design maximizes airspace and keeps space clear in front and behind the gate, making them a versatile and practical option for various settings.

• Aluminum, Steel, or Chain Link
• Trackless, compact design
• Electric or Hydraulic opening systems
