If the driveway has either a hump or dip, it does not matter as far as cantilever sliding gates are concerned, whereas this may be a big problem for track sliding gates.

 

The installation of cantilever sliding gate footings can be done without disruption to the driveway, whereas this is not the case if concrete footings have to be done for track gates.

 

The cantilever gates cannot be lifted, whereas track gates can be subject to being lifted off the track, causing possible security breaches and problems with the gate operator drive system.
