Chain Drive Rolling Gate Systems
The most common type of rolling gate system uses a chain to move the gate back and forth. Chain drive systems are used on most residential, most commercial, and some industrial applications.
Hydraulic Drive Slide Gate Systems
The hydraulic sliding gate system uses a horizontal drive rail that connects to the gate frame, which is driven by a hydraulic pump. A sliding gate system that uses a hydraulic drive system is primarily used in heavy-duty industrial settings and is not necessary for most commercial or residential projects.
