EDKO SafeGlide Bolt-On Track System
High Performance Bolt-On Cantilever System
performance cantilever system shall be as manufactured by EDKO,
Inc, 1019 Airpark Drive, Sugar Grove, Illinois, 60554 (800)
800-EDKO, Fax (630) 556-4478 or approved equal. System shall
facilitate installation of a top-hung, enclosed track, internal
roller type cantilever sliding gate system as per ASTM
F 1184-88 Type II, Class 2. Class 1 gates, i.e. designs using
external rollers or other support systems, shall not be
acceptable. All forms of measurements contained herein
are furnished to establish minimum acceptable standards. Gate
frame shall be provided by others.
2. Frame / Enclosed Track
Gate frame shall be fabricated from minimum 2" square 6061-T6
structural-grade aluminum alloy tubing weighing a minimum of 1.1
pounds per foot. Frame shall be welded at all corners so as
to form a rigid unit. Gate shall be fabricated as a single
welded unit with Uniweld construction. Intermediate vertical
members shall be 2" X 2" 6061-T6 structural-grade
aluminum alloy, weighing a minimum of 1.1 pounds per lineal foot.
Intermediate verticals shall be spaced apart no more than
6'0" on center, and all vertical members gusseted at top and
bottom for greater frame strength and rigidity. Enclosed track
shall be a one-piece extrusion of 6061-T6 structural-grade
aluminum alloy, weighing a minimum of 3.95 pounds per foot. Track
shall be formed to enclose the internal-roller truck assemblies
and structurally adequate to serve as the load-bearing surface for
the gate panel. Reaction load rating of the track shall be a
minimum of 2,000 pounds. Gate frame shall employ bi-directional
cross bracing of 3/16" diameter stainless steel preformed
aircraft cable, or diagonal tubular aluminum, installed in the
vertical plane throughout the gate proper and the counterbalance
to allow for vertical chord adjustment, and to add further
rigidity to the gate.
3. Internal-Roller Truck
Internal-roller truck assembly shall be self-aligning,
swivel ball-and-socket type running on four bearing-wheels.
Bearing-wheels shall be a minimum 2" diameter x 9/16"
wide, rated as medium duty, with a basic dynamic load rating of
2,750 pounds per bearing. Truck body shall be a one-piece
structural grade 356-T6 aluminum alloy casting, equipped with
milled steel guide wheels to ensure lateral alignment within the
track. Guide wheel axle shall extend through the top and bottom of
the truck body so as to assure that, regardless of wear, the guide
wheels cannot come loose from the axle and lodge in the track.
Internal-roller truck assembly shall be affixed to the hanger
bracket or other mounting fixture by means of a 5/8" diameter
industrial-grade rod end/center bolt, with a maximum static load
rating of 10,000 pounds. Attachment of the center bolt to the
truck body shall be by means of a swivel joint to ensure
equivalent and consistent loading on all bearing-wheels and
internal track surfaces throughout the travel of the gate.
Internal-roller truck assembly shall have the same reaction load
as the enclosed track.
4. Mounting Hardware
Bottom guide assembly shall consist of a steel mounting bracket
with two 3" diameter phenolic roller wheels with sealed
roller bearings mounted in such a way as to limit or contain
gate lateral movement without binding. Roller wheels shall be
braced top and bottom by the essential construction of the
bottom guide in such a fashion as to prevent lateral gate movement
which could deform the axles of the wheels and defeat the bottom
guide assembly. Hanger assembly shall consist of
minimum 3/8" thick steel plate, gusseted, which is to be
affixed to a 4" O.D. post by means of 1/2" diameter U-bolts. All mounting hardware shall be hot-dip
galvanized or plated for corrosion resistance.
5. Support Structure
Enclosed track shall be attached as per manufacturer's
instructions to the gate frame provided by others. Completed gate
assembly shall be erected on two 4" O.D. posts of
schedule 40 galvanized steel pipe weighing a minimum of 9.1 pounds
6. Quality Assurance
Contractor shall verify that the gate frame structure to which the
high performance cantilever system is to be affixed shall have
been designed and constructed so as to meet "Minimum
Performance Criteria, Type II, Class 2 Gates" as specified in
ASTM F 1184-88, with particular reference to vertical chord
deflection and lateral chord deflection. Any Class 1 gate shall
not be acceptable. Gate opening size shall not exceed 30 feet,
with an overall length not to exceed 42 feet.
System components manufactured and supplied by EDKO, Inc. shall
have a one-year limited warranty against defects in materials and
