The Shrewsbury hardwood sliding gate. When it comes to creating a Hardwood Sliding Gate, you can't beat the effects that Iroko produces. A beautiful, natural hardwood that's elegant and smooth, highly durable and has a density level of 660kg/m3 making it an extremely strong and long lasting. Iroko is even used for canal locks proving its long lasting features.Constructed using time served techniques such as mortise, tenon and dowel joints. Fitted with a solid bottom timber 70mm x 100mm to allow for the fitting of wheels and a large middle rail to allow for upright fixings and runners.
Sliding Gates (as one piece) can only be a maximum width of 11ft 10" (3.6m). Sizes over this will require the gate to be in two sections that are then bolted together. This is to prevent the gate from twisting out of shape. All Sliding Driveway Gates will have a bottom brace to allow for rollers etc flush with bottom edge of gate to allow for wheels to be attached. Installation available on this sliding gate with either a manual or electric operating system.
Finish: Professionally applied. Choice of colours available to compliment your home. Need another colour? We can finish your gate in any RAL colour. See here for colour chart.
