Automated cantilever gates are one of our specialties. These gates help in situations where a track to guide and automated gate isn’t practical. CDC has the experience and equipment to make cantilever gates to secure opening up to 115’ wide. The pictures in this page is just one example of this kind of application.
This gate is a total of 75’ long and 9’ high. It uses no ground track to guide it. This is a super rigid custom cantilever gate that weighs over two tons. It secures an opening 50’ wide to allow authorized trucks to come and go. This kind of gate cannot be installed by just anyone, it requires special engineering and experience to install a gate like this. This thing is BIG.
This gate incorporates motorized operation with special sensing capability to operate in a safe method in case anyone were to get in the way, hitting an object or person. The sensors are very important to minimize the risk of injury or damage. All of this sensing is occurring while a large motor is operating this 4000lb gate, opening and closing.
To construct this gate CDC had to use special gate hardware materials, available only from Italy, shown in the picture to the right. Massive rollers arrays to hold extremely high stress are needed. This hardware is uniquely built and tested to support a cantilever gate this heavy for a distance of 50’. Anchoring the roller points was done in a super foundation, adequate to suspend the gate this heavy at such a long distance.
As you can imagine, accuracy in construction and installation is paramount for the operation and long term durability of a gate this size. At Commercial Door Company we can manufacture and install gates like this anywhere in So. California.
