DuraGates Hardware is Cantilevered off the Ground

There are many advantages to DuraGates hardware, the main being it is cantilevered off the ground, so if you have a slope or an incline to work around, our system lets you do just that.

We are often asked if the gate itself can travel on an incline and unfortunately that won't work as the carriages have to be installed horizontally and in one line.

However, since DuraGates hardware is cantilevered off the ground, the ground itself can be at an incline. You just have to install the gate high enough to clear the highest point on the ground.

The wooden gate below is installed on a driveway with a steep slope making it difficult to have a sliding gate using traditional hardware such as V Groove wheels and track.
