What is a Commercial Cantilever Gate?
A cantilever gate is one that is suspended off the ground and operates entirely via a track system that is counterbalanced along the fence line. This counterbalance is what provides support for the commercial cantilever gate. Its presence means that the gate is wider than the fence. Because of this track system that is designed along the fence line, at no point does a commercial cantilever gate touch the ground or provide an obstruction for vehicles entering or exiting the business. For this reason, this type of fence is often preferred for industrial, commercial and heavy duty settings. Properly constructed and installed with the appropriate trusses and diagonal bracing, a cantilever gate is designed to withstand wind and other forces of nature.
Benefits of a Cantilever Gate

Given a business's individual circumstances, Apex Fence Company can provide a recommendation for the best commercial security gate. Here are some benefits to keep in mind when considering a cantilever gate:
Versatile: Cantilever gates are supported on one end as they open and close by moving along the fence line. This eliminates the need for additional lateral space. A commercial cantilever gate is ideal for openings of up to 30 feet wide.
Easy operation: Due to their lack of a tracking system, and because they don't need to touch the ground, the operation of a commercial cantilever gate is smooth and free of obstacles or obstructions.
Ideal for a number of conditions: A commercial cantilever gate is ideal for a number of ground circumstances. Grass, water, gravel, steep inclines, block paving, uneven ground -- the list of options that a commercial cantilever gate can work with is vast. Because this gate is suspended off the ground, it provides the ability for installation in circumstances that would present challenges for other types of gates.
