Gate -- Cantilever Slide Gate System
many years of installing gates of every description, including conventional
pipe frame and aluminum cantilever slide gates, Tymetal's engineers,
in conjunction with some of the top installers in the fence industry,
combined to develop a truly improved gate and gate system.
result, the Fortress Gate System, is a fully adjustable, modular
when required, cantilever slide gate system which outperforms any
other gate available today. In fact, it leads the market.
widths from 6 to 60 feet (or double gate widths from 12 to 120 feet)
can be accommodated utilizing our cantilever slide gates. Wider
openings can be accommodated with our box frame canted-wheel construction.
The result, regardless of the gate design, is a rugged, high performance
gate with high aesthetic appeal.
in terms of service life and security, cost is moderate and maintenance
minimal with quality unsurpassed in the marketplace.
Dollar for dollar the intrinsic value of the Fortress Gate System
is both measurable and justifiable. Repeat business is one of our
measures of success.
THE FORTRESS GATE SYSTEM IS THE BEST ON THE MARKET
Fortress Gate Systems are durable and strong by design. They combine
the beauty and performance of aluminum with the strength of steel.
The aluminum used for gate components are some of the strongest
alloys commercially available combining strength and workability
characteristics. Stainless steel cross brace cables provide additional
strength and rigidity.
In order for an aluminum cantilever slide gate to operate easily,
it must combine strength, rigidity and a smooth, gliding movement.
With the Fortress Gate System, there is no sag and very little effort
is needed to open or close the gate. The gate rides on rugged roller
assemblies inside the track. The trucks glide on sealed ball bearings,
and horizontal nylon wheels minimize side-to-side movement. The
enclosed track shelters the truck assemblies from foul weatherincluding
snow and ice, blown sand, dirt and sea spray. The continuous ease
of operation allows the specification of electric operators with
reduced power and load requirements.
The Fortress Gate System remains the only fully adjustable gate
available. On our standard cantilever gates up to 22' single and
44' double openings, the adjustment of our patented post tensioning
apparatus and the tension of the cross bracing allows precise alignment
of both the vertical and lateral planes. This ensures a properly
aligned gate for the life of the system. For longer
Every visible surface of the Fortress Gate System is aluminum, which
resists staining and corrosion, and ensures that the gates will
retain their superior appearance for years. All fasteners are of
corrosionresistant steel and all other hardware of ferrous material
which is heavily hot-dip galvanized after fabrication. In the Fortress
Gate System where chain link filler is utilized, standard height
chain link fabric which matches the adjoining fence is stretched
and tied to the gate frame. If the added security of barbed wire
is specified, extension arms are easily added to the system, either
when the gate is first erected or at a later date.
If ornamental picket gates are required, Metro Fence has a wide
range to offer. Vertical pickets on 2", 3", 411 1 611, 8" or 12"
centers are available with other spacings on request. Finishes available
are standard mill, baked on powder-coating or polyurethane enamel
paint in standard or custom colors.
FIVE-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
The Fortress Gate System has been thoroughly tested by an independent
laboratory. Upon completion of the tests, the gate components were
closely examined for wear and found to have no perceptible defects
or hidden stress cracks. Based on this performance, all components
of the Fortress Gate System are given a 5-year limited warranty.
No other gate manufacturer of any gate system demonstrates this
degree of confidence in their product.
