DuraGates CGS-350.8G, Grande Carriage, Monobloc Body

Opening & Weight Range :

16 ft. up to 4000 lbs. 60 ft. up to 1800 lbs.

This cantilever gate hardware model is recommended for large and heavy industrial or commercial sliding gates, especially in high traffic applications.



DuraGates CGS-350.8G, Grande Carriage, Monobloc Body

Heavy duty 8 wheel carriages with sealed bearings. Large pivot allows for increased weight capacity, smooth sliding and stability. Larger wheel dimensions increase the weight capability and reduce wear and tear between wheels and tracks.


Grande galvanized track

Build the gate right on the track. Galvanized steel track’s structural properties allow high loads without distortion. The track is made from low carbon steel alloy for excellent weldability. Available in 20’ and 10’ lengths.


End Wheel for UL325 Compliance

The End Wheel bolts into each end of the track and complies with UL325 safety code for automated gates. It gives a finished look and prevents dirt, snow, etc. from getting inside the track and interfering with the operation of the carriages. The wheel allows the gate to roll into the bottom
end cup without scraping the paint or galvanized coating.


Bottom End Cup

This cup receives the track in either the closed or open position. The beveled leading edge allows for a smooth entry and stop. The cup holds the gate steady, reducing vibrations from wind conditions, etc., and prolongs the life of the carriages and gate operators.


J-Bolt, Galvanized

Galvanized J-Bolts are set into the concrete pad as it is poured. Once it has cured, the carriages
are then secured to the pad using these bolts. J-Bolts are the preferred method of anchoring the carriages to the concrete pad. Wedge anchors with two-part epoxy will work but need to be sized to each load according to manufacturer’s recommendations.


Foundation Plate

The foundation plate provides a solid base for leveling the carriage on the pad. It prevents the leveling screws from digging into the pad and causing long term alignment issues. By keeping the carriage bottom from being in direct contact with the concrete pad, it slows down corrosion effects.
