Why Choose DuraGates?
When building a rolling or sliding gate system for your property, one of the most important choices you have to make is which type of track system you want to use. That's right. Even the way you want your gate to move requires a specific choice of hardware! Several sliding or rolling fence gate methods include v-track, overhead track, and exposed-roller systems. But all of these options leave the rollers exposed to the elements, causing them to require constant cleaning and making them susceptible to weather damage. Weather and debris like snow or fallen leaves may also obstruct exposed tracks, making it harder to open or close your fence gate. If these are of genuine concern to you and you don't want to risk your gate becoming more of a nuisance than a convenience, you may want to consider a different option.
DuraGates offers maintenance-free sliding and rolling entrance gate technology via an enclosed track along the base of the gate door. This shields the rollers (arguably the most sensitive part of a rolling/sliding track system) from the elements by encasing them inside the track. Some overhead track systems also use this method, though because they are overhead, the weight of the gate hangs down from the track and causes constant pressure that severely lowers its weight capacity. DuraGates enclosed roller systems can accommodate up to 4,000 pounds, and gate openings can stretch up to 59 feet in length. Because of its ability to support such weight, height, and length, more standard sizes put less stress on the gate opener's motor, causing it to last longer than it would if it were strained. And with the wheels encased inside its track, it is impossible to derail like v-track systems are susceptible to.
