Gates / Automation

Total fence offers a wide variety of safety gates to meet the requirements of a project. It could be a single gate or, a gate to be integrated into the perimeter fence, where the gate construction is done so that the fence and the gate merge into each other which adds tremendously to the aesthetic appeal of the entire construction.

Cantilever sliding doors are ideal for applications requiring automatic door operator systems, as no part of the door comes in contact with the ground. Also, the most durable type of automatic electric gate operator for heavy use in cold weather applications is the sliding door operator (as opposed to swing door operators). The proper design, manufacture and installation of a cantilever sliding door will reduce friction during operation and extend the life of a door operator.Functional requirements and site layout should always be considered before choosing your portal style.

Choose a material that matches the style of your home and that is appropriate for the climate. For example, if you live in a coastal area, choose a material that is resistant to salt corrosion.



Choose a style that complements the existing architecture of your home and the surrounding landscape.



Measure the opening of the space where the gate will be installed to ensure that the gate will fit properly.



Consider the maintenance requirements of the gate. Some materials, like wood, will require more maintenance than others.



Look for a gate that is made of durable materials and that is built to withstand the elements.
