Tiger Slide Gates

PalmSHIELD Tiger slide gate series combines the appeal of PalmSHIELD’s architectural screening options to a commercial cantilever slide gate. This is a uncanny pairing as cantilever slide gates are truly suspended and cantilevered through the opening, not utilizing any ground supports or wheels. This means that the structural design of the gate itself must be considerable, supporting both the weight of the architectural panels and the wind load created.

PalmSHIELD Tiger commercial and industrial slide gates provide a wide array of PalmSHIELD infill options including composite wood, vinyl, aluminum, louvers, perforated and wire mesh. The architectural infill panels are installed into the cantilever slide gate to provide continuity with adjoining screening. Unlike any other commercial slide gate manufacture, PalmSHIELD Tiger commercial slide gates are sweep blasted and powder coated. We offer an endless number of colors.

Unlike standard cantilever slide gates, the PalmSHIELD Tiger series incorporates a much larger structural framework. The vertical framework begins with a 4” x 2” tubular outer framework encapsulating a 3” x 3” interior angle or 2” x 3” tubular U-shaped picture frame. This is an industrial and commercial gate design when aesthetics are critical. The Tiger series utilizes a upper single or double track design based on the weight and length of the opening. The bottom guide is no less than a 5” x 2” tubular member supporting the gate against wind load.

PalmSHIELD Tiger gates are each custom engineered to your tallest and widest openings. PalmSHIELD applies a series of engineering principles, accounting for the effects of the cantilevered load and wind load. PalmSHIELD has successfully built tens of thousands of industrial and commercial gates over the last thirty years.

  • Slide gates available in cantilevered or slide gates.
  • Proven engineering principles employed to support endless sizes of cantilevered gates.
