The LoTracker is the renowned Cantilevered Sliding Gate from Frontier Pitts which secures widths up to 15m.

The LoTracker Sliding Gate is 100% duty rated -  designed for continuous & frequent use.

A Sliding Cantilevered Gate requires no track or support across the roadway - the gate leaf is supported by a main beam, which slides 100mm above the road surface. The balance is provided by a unique enclosed runback track, which enables the gate to be fully projected across the roadway without tipping.

The benefits of a Cantilevered Gate are:

  •         Reduced civils cost
  •         Ease of installation; no need for road closures
  •         Reduced maintenance; no track to keep clear

Frontier Pitts Sliding Tracked Gates are modelled on either the LoTracker or Sliding Cantilevered Gates, and incorporates similar design features. They are designed to run on a track installed in the roadway. The track allows wider gates and, therefore, wider apertures to be secured by "Taxi Way" sliding gates

All gates are supplied as standard with an inverter.  

This provides two advantages over direct online starting: 

  • power supply from a more available variant
  • improved control over force limitation, therefore increasing the safety of the gate.

Three phase supply is available as an option.
