Motorised Sliding Gates

If you have a small driveway or limited space you should consider sliding gates. They are more secure than conventionally opening gates because they are set in a track. Pushing sliding gates inwards requires a huge amount of force.

Another advantage of sliding electric gates is their speed

Sliding electric gates operate up to 60% faster than conventional, hinge-based equivalents.

The design and installation process is more complex than for conventionally-operated gates – which means it’s vital that you use a company with experience and expertise. C4G Automation Gates uses only the best sliding gate automation equipment – guaranteeing you the smoothest, most efficient and most reliable operation possible.

We supply the appropriate motor for your type and size of gate and plan and fit the track to our own exacting specifications. When the track is ready, the gate is mounted into the frame, the electrics are installed and calibrated and the gate is tested and passed for safety and security in everyday use.

Assuming that your gates are either manually locked or locked shut by automation motors, you will need to use at least one method of access control.

There are several methods used to control entry and exit, both of expected and unexpected visitors, namely:

  • Remote Control
  • Vehicle Detection Loops
  • Magnetic Locks
  • Keypad Control
  • GSM Mobile Control
  • Push Button
  • WiFi Control
  • Access Card or Card Reader Entry
  • Intercom Systems

All these methods can be supported by CCTV if required.

In order to determine which of these options will be required, we look forward to meeting you for a survey of your property.

We also automate garage doors and can link the garage door system to the gate system using a remote hand transmitter.


There are various types of automatic gates with openers available for anyone that wants to automate the opening and closing of their gates. The reason that there are various options to choose from is because different types of gates require different openers to make them automatic, so it’s important to choose a suitable motor for the appropriate gate.
