Tracked gates are ideal for many applications and can provide a cost effective alternative to other methods. They are┬árelatively simple to fit and don’t require the large bottom rail associated with a cantilever gate. They do however, need to be fitted in a debris free situation, as they can be de-railed by stones. The other advantage of a tracked system is it needs little more than its own length in which to operate.┬áThe choice of opening methods is the same as any electric gate and can be anything from a simple button to a mobile phone. Some gates can be retro fitted as tracked gates but it’s much better if the gate is designed with this purpose in mind. On our timber gates, we always fit a large rail where the toothed comb is to be fitted, this makes for a much neater finished job. A tracked electric gate will give you many years of trouble free service if fitted and maintained correctly.
