Triple Stack Telescopic Gate System

The project:

To install an automatic sliding driveway gate and matching pedestrian gate with electric lock and intercom system

The challenge:

The driveway width was only 2.6 meters wide with a mere 1.4 meters side room for the gate to slide into the open position

Our team designed the first triple stack telescopic sliding gate system that we know of in Australia so that the client could have an automatic sliding gate system installed to secure their property.

The telescopic sliding gate system was constructed of three panels – Two x 1.1M leaves and the driving leaf at 1.35M.

As shown in the video, once the remote control is pressed to open and close the gate, the driving leaf slides slowly along the track, the second leaf travels at twice the speed, the third leaf travels across the driveway at three times the speed so they all conclude their travel at exactly the same time to fully secure the property.

It is most important to have a substantial sized electric opener as loading is increased as well as soft start, slow down at end of travel and a reduced gear drive to keep speed in check and safe to operate.

Safety is guaranteed by the use of photo electric safety beams, if the gate sensor detects a vehicle, person or object in its path it will stop operating until the path is cleared.

This new ground breaking design will allow many narrow blocks the option of installing an automatic security gate system when they have a restricted amount of side room for it to open into.

Why install an automatic sliding gate over an automatic swing gate system?

Many smaller blocks require a sliding gate system so that they can close the gate behind their vehicle once they have parked inside their property. Quite often, swing gates on small blocks will be unable to close if a vehicle is parked in the driveway as the vehicle blocks the closing area the swing gates require.

In this situation a sliding gate system is ideal as it does not encroach in the vehicle parking area. Unfortunately many smaller blocks found throughout Sydney’s Inner West, Eastern Suburbs and Lower North Shore don’t have the full width of the driveway off to the side for a sliding gate to slide open to.

This new design triple stacker automatic sliding gate system addresses this issue allowing smaller blocks to have the option of an automatic security gate system.
