Rolling gates are a special type of sliding gate that require less lateral sliding room than cantilever gates. This makes them ideally suited to installations where there is less space, but a sliding gate is required.
Typical rolling gates or sliding gates include an additional horizontal rail and specialized steel roller wheels and fittings, however, it's also possible to use barn track style hardware to create a top hung gate where required.
We can design, supply and install rolling gates to match many of the fence systems we offer, for interior or exterior applications.
If you need a rolling gate, whether it's a standard, off the shelf option or something specific to your needs, contact your Rite-Way Fencing representative.
