A Brief Guide to Timber Sliding Gates

The Fencing Bloke: your local expert in fencing supply and fencing installation. We are suppliers and approved installers for Jacksons Fencing products. Here is a brief guide to the two types of Jacksons timber sliding gates we can supply and install.

A Brief Guide to Timber Sliding Gates

Jacksons timber sliding gates are designed in a similar way to their courtyard gates for situations where space is at a premium or a sliding operation will add additional privacy and control.

All timber used throughout Jacksons products is superior quality planed finish Jakcure® treated softwood, guaranteed for 25 years, with heavily galvanised fittings for an extra long life.

Gates without a Track (cantilever)

A 63mm wide gate frame is cladded on both sides with a 95mm x 17mm Tongue and Groove style infill. The gates are supported on two separate square posts and the gates slide on a specially designed steel beam that is fixed to the gate through adjustable rollers to ensure a smooth operation.

The top of the gate is supported on a channel by two pairs of rollers. The gate closes into guides on a catch post. The gate’s support posts and the catch post are fitted with base plates to be bolted to foundations and they are heavily galvanised to ensure a long life. Posts may either supplied galvanised; galvanised with powder coated black; or timber.

Gates with a Track (tracked)

A 100mm x 65mm gate frame is clad on both sides with a 95mm x 17mm Tongue and Groove style infill. The gate is fitted onto a 200mm x 100mm hollow section galvanised steel tube with two heavy duty wheels that run on a track set in concrete. The gate is supported with three ‘portal’ columns that are securely bolted to the concrete foundations.
