Racking for Sliding gates
Each length of Rack has a locking tongue at each end.
We can supply a short piece rack that helps with
joining, if the join is out by 1mm the wheel cog
on the gate motor will always find it hard to travel on this section of this join and will effect the performance of the gate.
Slip the racking together and use the short section as shown this makes the join true so the cog on the motor will run true.
Take the time to make sure the racking is joined correctly.
If you replacing just a section from your gate, send me a picture of the end joiner they are different and I will match it up with other racking we have in stock.
