About sliding gate wheel

Short Insight into a Sliding Gate Wheel

In general, a sliding gate wheel is a tough and durable attachment to the gate in order to protect it from scrapes, chips, and scuffs, which also embodies a barrier between the gate and the ground, therefore hampering the gate to be dragged along the ground. What’s more, a gate on wheels may be used in residential, industrial, or commercial settings, and is easily closed and opened without any manual force or lifting.

Sliding Gate Rollers: Two Main Options

First things first, sliding gate rollers, also referred to as fence gate rollers, are found as rubber wheels and V-groove ones. Casting light on rubber rolling gate wheels, they are manufactured to freely move over any type of ground, however, they may be difficult to close and open on rocky, sand, and uneven terrain. On the other hand, they won’t cost you an arm and a leg and can be used as a perfect attachment to chain link fences. V-groove driveway gate rollers are ideal for automated sliding gates with concrete driveways and are usually put into the brackets so as to ride on an angle iron track with the corner being faced up. In most cases, these heavy-duty sliding gate wheels come in sizes ranging from 40 mm to 100 mm, and are found in steel or stainless steel variations. Lastly, V-track for sliding gate wheels are indispensable in case you want to convert the manual slide gate into the automated one.

Other Types of Gate Wheels: Be on the Know

Some other popular gate wheels include cantilever gate rollers that represent roller gate tracks made of nylon or any malleable material to hold the levels of cantilever gates 8 feet to 10 feet apart. Also, there are swivel wheels rotating 360 degrees when rolled and outboard gate rollers that are usually bolted in one place and capable of rolling in one direction only, both of which are mounted to single-swing or double-drive gates.
