In accordance with the government advice and to safeguard our employees and customers, we are pleased to be opening our workshop to start production. We are also able to make appointments for site visits, which will be carried out in-line with social distancing guidance. Our showroom remains closed but we are able to open for appointments only - so please get in touch. If you have an enquiry drop an email to theteam@ironcraft.co.uk and we'll be happy to help. In the event of a power failure or breakdown please put your gates into manual release and email us.

Wherever there is limited space or where a swing type gate could form an obstruction to a turning vehicle, an automated sliding gate could be the ideal solution. A cantilevered sliding gate system can also be used where there is a crossfall or undulations which cannot be overcome. It is also an excellent solution for steep, sloping drives. When closed the sliding gate is encapsulated at both ends, making it extremely secure. The “slider” system may be used with most types of wrought iron and wooden gates.

Sliding motors are fitted above ground level, immediately behind the “opening” side of the sliding gate and operate using a cog and toothrack. We appreciate that everyone’s installation requirements are different so, rest assured, we are on hand from initial design through to final installation, thus ensuring you get exactly the right combination of security and style.

Our engineers undergo ongoing, comprehensive product and safety awareness training.

We use market-leading operating systems that are designed with the latest, cutting edge technology to ensure that the gates operate extremely safely and reliably. When commissioned, all installations will be fully compliant with the latest European safety laws and will be subject to a full risk assessment and a multipoint computer analysed force test for safety against crushing. The system will also be fully assessed for other potential risk areas as required by law for the safety.
