What is a cantilever sliding gate?

Both traditional sliding and cantilever gates can be constructed using a variety of materials, including iron, steel, aluminum, wood, and composite.
How long should a cantilever gate be?
Most cantilever gate designs use a standard principle: The length of the gate’s vertical should be greater than the spacing of each vertical support. In other words, if the vertical support is 72” tall, the vertical supports should not be spaced more than 72” apart from one another.
How do you install a cantilever sliding gate?
To install a cantilever gate:

- Install the gate onto the two bottom rollers.
