White steel blade fence and telescopic sliding gate

At Haven Fencing, we pride ourselves on delivering not just fences and gates, but solutions that seamlessly blend aesthetic appeal with practical functionality. Recently, we had the pleasure of completing a project that perfectly encapsulates this ethos: a stunning white steel blade fence accompanied by a state-of-the-art telescopic electric sliding gate. In this blog post, we delve into the intricacies of this project and shed light on the unparalleled benefits of telescopic gates.

The Evolution of Sliding Driveway Gates

Sliding driveway gates have long been favored for their ability to span wide driveways without encroaching on valuable space. However, traditional sliding gates require sufficient lateral space to open fully, posing a challenge for properties with constrained driveways. Telescopic gates provide the innovative solution to space limitations.

Overcoming Space Constraints with Telescopic Gates

What sets telescopic gates apart is their ability to operate within tight spaces without compromising on functionality. Unlike conventional sliding gates, which require ample room to slide open, telescopic gates feature multiple panels that stack upon each other. This design allows them to open and close efficiently, making them ideal for driveways with limited lateral space.

Unraveling the Mechanics of Telescopic Gates

How exactly do telescopic gates work their magic? The back gate panel is driven by a motor, much like a standard sliding gate. However, what sets telescopic gates apart is the ingenious telescopic drive mechanism. A wire rope, connected to the ground at one end and the front gate at the other, wraps around the bottom rail. As the back gate moves, the telescopic mechanism propels the front gate forward, creating a seamless sliding motion.

The Versatility of Two and Three Panel Telescopic Gates

While two-panel telescopic gates are the most popular choice, with one panel stacked in front of the other, Haven Fencing also offers three-panel options for added versatility. These gates can be tailored to fit driveways of varying widths and slopes, ensuring a perfect fit for every property.
