Telescopic gates essentially allow twice the opening width into half the space. Compared to a typical sliding gate with a single panel, it is made up of 2 or 3 panels which overlap each other when opening, occupying less space. As Melbourne’s experts in commercial sliding door repair, Cowan Doors can help with servicing, maintenance, installation, and repairs for all types of commercial sliding doors and gates, including telescopic versions. Read on to find out more about these innovative gates for commercial settings.
How Do Telescopic Gates Work?
Telescopic gates work by using a series of interconnected panels that slide or fold in order to open and close. The panels are track mounted and the system uses a cable drive that is mounted under the gate panels, allowing for each one to open seamlessly on top of the other.
Typically used in situations where space is limited, and a traditional swinging gate would not be practical, these industrial sliding gates are also useful in high-traffic areas where a swinging gate would impede the flow of traffic. Additionally, telescopic sliding gates are often used in settings where security is a top priority, as they can be designed to be more secure than traditional swinging gates.
What Are the Advantages?
There are many advantages of installing telescopic industrial sliding gates.
- Even if your space is very limited, these sliding gates still allow for a wide opening.
- Faster to open and close than a traditional sliding gate.
- Excellent security – there are multiple ways to operate these gates which can boost security: intercom, push button, digital keypad, card reader, token reader or radio transmitter.
