Sliding gates are a great option for homes or properties with restricted space, where a swinging gate would impede on pedestrians outside or wouldn’t have room to open in your driveway and fit cars, or there are trees, rocks or other landscaping features in the way. Although sliding gates may require a little more maintenance than regular swing gates if your sliding gate is installed properly and of premium quality like ours, maintenance won’t be required.
Types of Aluminium Sliding Gates
Like any gate or fence you see from home to home, business to business they come in all shapes and sizes, and that isn’t any different with aluminum sliding gates. You can easily find a gate that suits your properties style, landscape or the area your property is located.
Slat Size and Orientation
Aluminium sliding gates like any other gate differ in slat size, being the panels which may run vertical or horizontal. For a more modern look, you may choose wide slats with minimal spacing. Also, when it comes to spacing, depending if your sliding gate is for aesthetics or purely security having gaps in your gate is allowing space for others to look in.
An excellent way to combat space within slats while not sacrificing air flow. The perfect answer to that is a gate style called “louvre” which imitates a three-quarter closed Venetian blind. Allowing air to pass without compromising your home or businesses security. Other styles include parallel slats, pickets, and thin geometrical panels to name a few.
