Selecting a Sliding Gate

Slide gates glide along a bottom track and open sideways to the left or right. They tuck neatly out of the way and don’t require clearance to swing open. A slide gate is a good option if you have pets and are worried about them potentially squeezing under the gate and venturing out of the yard.

If you don’t want to worry about constantly cleaning debris out of the bottom track of your sliding gate, a cantilever gate is a great option. Unlike traditional sliding gates, cantilever gates are trackless. Instead of gliding along a bottom track, they slide along post-mounted rollers that don’t come into contact with the ground. This gives you the same esthetic as a conventional sliding gate with far less upkeep.

Space Requirements

Generally, the space required to accommodate a sliding gate’s opening is the same as the width it covers. However, you should also account for a few extra feet of space for easy access. For example, a 30-foot-wide driveway gate would need to have 30 feet on one side for gate storage and about three more feet to allow maneuverability around the frame.

Slide Gate Materials

Residential driveway slide gates come in various materials like wood, steel, wrought iron, and aluminum and are fully customizable when you work with Creative Door Services™. Therefore, you can easily find something to complement the style of your home and personal taste.

  • Aluminum gates are low-maintenance and naturally rust-resistant. Moreover, many aluminum gates at Creative Door Services™ are finished with a powder coating to ensure they don’t peel or fade.

  • Wrought iron gates are extremely popular as they offer a classic look with unmatched durability.

  • Finally, wood gates have classic decorative features. They’re ideal for increased privacy as they’re typically made of a single, solid piece of wood or several closely stacked wooden planks.
