We offer a full range of hardware for light gates weighing as little as 100 lbs to heavier ones weighing more than 4000 lbs. The hardware can accommodate an opening width of over 59 feet. The products are manufactured in Italy by Fratelli Comunello sPA, the leaders in their field for over 50 years. The hardware combined with a range of the high quality BFT Gate Operators is truly a long lasting and complete solution for any sliding gate.
 
2.2
SLIDING GATE HARDWARE
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** The Comunello Cantilever Gate System comes in two versions, CGS (steel) and CGA (aluminum gates). All accessories are galvanized for a more durable product. The Sliding Gate systems can be used for any gate material such as steel, wood, vinyl, aluminum, chain link etc.
The technical innovation in these products, as compared to a traditional sliding gate, lies in the fact that the entire gate is cantilevered off the ground without any rollers moving on the ground. This allows for free movement of the gate in bad ground conditions and also reduces the wear and tear on the gate. Maintenance is also reduced. Besides, it gives a nice clean look without any unsightly wheels moving on the ground. (NOTE: Weight ranges mentioned by each model are for the gate opening and not for the full gate.)
