|This is a complete telescopic sliding gate installation kit with all the parts required for a telescopic sliding gate opening up to 8.5m.
This kit does not include the hardware required to make each of the gates slide individually but they are available separately and also in a bundle.
Consisting of Galvanized steel pulley carriers with sealed bearings this kit allows the final tensioning of the system to be performed from either (or both) ends of the gate rather than between the gates like conventional kits.
What is a Telescopic Gate:
A telescopic gate is a gate designed in two halves with a leading and a trailing gate. The leading gate will be the gate closest to the inside of the property whereas the trailing gate is the gate that is closest to the street.
Typically a sliding gate would require the width of the driveway + the tail of the gate (350mm) as the minimum clear area required however the telescopic gate system only requires half the driveway width + the tail of gate (350mm). This makes a telescopic gate superior in clearance space required and beneficial for townhouses, blocks of units and any other installation with limited space.Using the information above if the driveway width is 4000mm then each gate would be manufactured to 2350mm thus making 2350mm the required clearance space. Ideally an additional 150mm would be ideal for a ground stop installation making the preferred clearance space 2500mm
