The BK is the ultimate when it comes to service and safety. It is designed for automating gates to apartment blocks and for industrial and collective area sliding gates in general. It comes in 9 different versions – all designed to meet the usage requirements and solve any needs related to considerable weight, and thickness.

3-phase technology enables the operator to reach its full potential. It features self-diagnostics of the safety circuits which blocks the system from working if one of the photocells or sensitive edges malfunctions; and the auxiliary lighting of the driveway area, which is directly controlled by the built-in electronic card.

Sliding Gate Automation

There are two different types of sliding gate mechanism:

The traditional Roller Tracked sliding gate

Sliding gate diagram

The Cantilever sliding gate

Cantilever sliding gate diagram

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. The advantage of a cantilever gate is that you don't have to keep the track free of leaves - however, cantilever gates are generally more expensive as they require more civil engineering.

Both roller-tracked AND cantilever gates can be automated using any of the CAME motors pictured to the right. Both roller-tracked AND cantilever gates can be automated using any of the CAME motors pictured below.
A swing gate may cause an obstruction if your driveway turns sharply to the left or right. Therefore, a sliding gate may be the only solution when there is limited space in your driveway area.

Please bear in mind that a sliding gate does require more space width ways than a swing gate.

The installation of an electric sliding gate system is a little more involved than any other type of electric gate, but once the correct ground track and/or cantilever roller frames are installed, then the installation follows the same format as with other types of electric gates.

Our trained engineers will be more than happy to visit your property to discuss which system would be the most effective solution for your needs.
