Sliding Gates made in Doncaster by Weldlock Engineering Ltd

A clever solution

Certain circumstances may require you to need a sliding gate (or you may just like the look of them). If your driveway is at a strange angle and it turns sharply to the left or right, a sliding gate will be a great solution as it utilises the limited space you have available. It’s important to note thought that a sliding gate does require more space width wise than a typical swing gate.

Sliding gates are manufactured in two ways, Tracked method, and Cantilever method:

  • A tracked sliding gate runs on wheels along a grooved steel rail that is buried just below ground level
  • A cantilever gate is counterbalanced above the ground, supported by rollers fitted to the bottom of the gate

If you’re unsure about which gate type you’d require please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be able to explain the pros and cons of each to determine which one best suits your needs.


Although our Sliding Gates are made in Doncaster these products are enjoyed by customers throughout the whole South Yorkshire and beyond.
