    Magnetic Automation is leader in the manufacture of Cantilever, Track, Modular & Telescopic gates. Security gates can be built to custom requirements including gate speed adjustments. Fully welded Australian made RHS steel is used in the gate frame, back runner & support posts, with 25 x 25mm RHS uprights. All rollers are supplied with sealed ball bearings which are designed to exceed gate loads & are capable of 100% duty cycle.

    2a. Modular Cantilever Gate - MHG
    The MHG modular slide gate is constructed from aluminium & fully welded RHS galvanised steel is used for the frames & posts. It is ideal for remote locations as it does not require ground tracks or overhead rails. The MHG can be transported on a pallet & can be assembled on site without requiring specialist lifting equipment. A solar panel option is available.

    2b. Heavy Duty Cantilever Gate - STG
    Designed for heavy duty & high security applications with Gate leaf spans up to 12 metres. The STG incorporates a SEW motor and gearbox as well as a fully customisable PLC Controller.

    2c. Industrial Cantilever Gate - MCG
    The MCG eliminates the need for ground tracks & overhead rails. The cantilever system & customised options allow for a variety of motors & controllers to be installed dependent on the duty cycle of the gate. The MCG Sliding gate allows for single leaf spans of up to 10mtrs.

    2d. Cantilever Sliding Gate - MCL
    The MCL is ideal for commercial & security applications, where speed & efficiency is of high importance. The MCL allows for single leaf spans of up to 6 metres.

    2e. Track Sliding Gate – MTG
