Sleek Steel Gate at a Washington State Residence

DIYer, Jesse, wanted a decorative sliding gate that could be automated but attractive. The Integrator cantilever system, with its internal drive, was the perfect choice for his sliding gate. The gear rack that usually mounts on the outside face of our track is hidden inside. The rough terrain surrounding the driveway was also taken into 
consideration as a ground mount system would not be possible.  
Integrator model CGS 500.8M was chosen for his 17 ft. x 800 lb. steel gate. The gate is supported at the top by our 10 in. nylon rollers which allows for the arched gate top.          The gate is automated with a BFT ARES gate operator. The keypads for entry and exit offer an added convenience.
