Sliding Gate Openers

Sliding gates are ideal where there is insufficient space for swing gates or where particularly large gates are needed e.g. for commercial use. Slide gate opener suppliers include: Viking, DoorKing, Ramset, Eagle, FAAc and Appollo with prices ranging from around $800 to $2000 for residential use. Heavy duty sliding gate openers for residential or commercial use start at around $1400 up to many thousands. Look out for a slide gate opener sale price that can give big reductions of $100's.

As well as a sliding gate opener all sliding gate systems require a track, wheels to support the gate and allow it to run along the track as well as rollers to hold the gate in position.
