Fortress Box Frame Cantilever Slide Gate

The Fortress Box Frame Cantilever Slide Gate is a cantilever system designed to handle the forces of gravity and wind using box frame construction and stainless steel cable. Diagonal cross members eliminate lateral sway.

Gate Construction:

  • Fabricated from 6063-T6 aluminum alloy extrusions
  • Primary members (top and bottom) are “P”-shaped in cross section
  • Vertical members alternate between 2” x 2” and 1” x 2” in cross section and are spaced at a distance not to exceed the gate height
  • Outside frame-to-frame width measures 24”
  • Cross-bracing of 3/16” (min) diameter stainless steel cable for vertical adjustment
  • Extruded aluminum alloy track welded to the primary member
  • Gate supported by two tracks containing self-aligning, 4-wheeled, sealed lubricant ball bearing truck assemblies
  • Bottom guides are provided for each side of the gate frame
  • Ground roller assembly supports the back end of the gate when the gate is in the open position
