Sliding Gate Kits

Sliding gates are extremely popular for commercial and residential use and offer safe, fast entry and exit. They feature a simple setup of a wheel mounted onto the gate that slides across a track and is usually a single unit that slides across the opening to the side of the driveway. There are also bi-parting gates that stow on either side of the driveway.

What are Automated Sliding Gate Kits?

These gates can be automated through the installation of sliding gate kits, motors and accessories. The kits can be added to new or existing sliding or bi-parting gates. Each sliding gate kit has a maximum weight capacity that it can carry.

So, it’s essential to know the weight of your gate to identify which motor is needed. Sliding gate kits can be fitted to gates that range from 50kg to 2500kg (the smallest motor starts at 500kg). However, heavier motors are available for larger, heavier commercial gates.

What Comes in a Sliding Gate Kit

The following items are included in each sliding gate kit:

Motor, with built-in control panel, one pair of photocells, two remote transmitters, and one receiver. Additional remotes and photocells can also be purchased if needed.

Why Buy a Sliding Gate Kit?

Do you have a manual sliding gate? If so, you regularly deal with some of the downsides of a manual gate. However, there’s the option of installing (retrofitting) a sliding gate kit to your new or existing sliding gate.

Sliding gate kits offer several benefits, including the following:

Ease of Use

There’s no question that an automated gate makes life much easier for everyone. Rather than stepping out to manually open the gate from your vehicle, the sliding gate kit makes it possible to open the gate remotely conveniently. You don’t have to get out of the vehicle and deal with inclement weather.

In addition, sliding gate kits make sliding gates much easier for seniors and younger family members to open and close the gate.


Sliding gate kits can also enhance the security of your property by enforcing boundaries between your home and the outside world. Gates can’t guarantee security; however, they go a long way in improving property security. Automatic gate openers allow you to safely open and close the gate from the security of your vehicle or home.

Add to the Aesthetics of a Property

Sliding gate kits also give gate automation a touch of luxury to your existing gate, however with underground automation this can also be installed without changing the aesthetic of the gate. Having automated gates can also increase your property’s value.

Durability & Low Maintenance

Sliding gate kits are made of high-quality materials that ensure their durability; they’re also low maintenance. Kits are available to handle both light and heavy gates. And because they’re made of quality materials, sliding gate kits can last for many years.


Finally, sliding gate kits are very affordable. It’s possible to find a kit that fits your budget.
