                    Cantilever Gate Roller
The Cantilever Gate Roller is one of Edko’s SafeGlide® Gate Systems. It is a highly durable, safe, easy-to-operate perimeter security solution. This rugged system represents decades of experience in structural engineering, gate manufacturing, and installation. They outlast traditional alternatives by years and years, giving you real value and performance even in demanding high-cycle applications.

  • Easily erected and maintenance free
  • Built with a movement mechanism made to last, even under the strain of high-cycle and high speed operation
  • Smooth, quiet operation is provided by using Dupont Delrin®
  • Non-Removable integrated cover for safety, reducing liability risks and UL325 compliant.
  • Makes gates easy to operate, whether by hand or automatic operation.
  • Extends life of gate operators
  • 5 Year Limited Warranty (Please see Edko, Inc. Limited Warranty)

SafeGlide systems are made to be paired easily with gate operators and are designed to handle high-cycle and high-speed applications. The two-inch permanently sealed bearings require no greasing.

  • Injection molded using Dupont Delrin® for the highest precision six inch roller made
  • The roller has a 18,000 pound PSI rating with the best overall temperature range and resistance to moisture and water absorbtion
  • Non-removable integrated polyurethane cover for safety and additional protection from the elements
  • Standard mounting bracket is yellow zinc chromate for 4 inch O.D. pipe with a one inch steel shaft for the roller. All necessary hardware included. Optional 6 5/8 O.D. pipe bracket and four inch square u-bolts are also available
  • UV stabilizers added for superior life
  • High precision sealed bearings with a 3100 pound load rating are inserted and encompassed during the injection process to give the best bearing and roller performance available in the industry
  • Meets UL325 Specification

EDKO SafeGlide® Delrin Roller
Exposed Roller Cantilever Gate System


1.0.0. Equipment

1.1.0. Roller System


Exposed Roller Cantilever Gate System shall be as manufactured by EDKO, Inc., 1019 Airpark Drive, Sugar Grove, IL 60554, (800) 800-3356, Fax (630) 556-4478 or approved equal. Cantilever Gate Roller System shall facilitate installation of a pipe-frame external roller-type cantilever sliding gate system as per ASTM F 1184-93, Class 1.

2. External Roller Assembly

External roller assembly shall consist of a minimum 6.0" diameter, 3.875" wide Dupont Delrin injection molded wheel which shall rotate upon bearings that shall rotate upon a 1.25" hardened steel main shaft and enclosed by a non-removable integral polyurethane cover for safety.

A Dupont Delrin wheel shall be employed to reduce the effective drag co-efficient, and to prevent wearing off the galvanizing of a galvanized steel pipe-frame gate. The Dupont Delrin injection molded wheel with which the gate shall be in contact shall have a 18,000 PSI load rating prior to deformation so as to prevent flatted surfaces on the wheel to which cast wheels are prone.

Bearings shall be rubber-sealed and permanently lubricated, and shall have a reaction load rating of 3,100 pounds per bearing. The 1.25" hardened steel main shaft shall have a minimum shear strength of 10,000 pounds. The external roller assembly shall have a 3,100 pound capacity.

3. Mounting Hardware

Mounting hardware shall be an integral part of the Cantilever Gate Roller System. The external roller assembly shall be affixed to a formed .375" steel plate mount which shall be yellow zinc plated. The chassis of the assembly shall be yellow zinc chromated for corrosion-resistance. The mounting hardware supplied shall be appropriate for mounting the Cantilever Gate Roller System to 4" O.D. posts of schedule 40 galvanized steel pipe weighing a minimum of 9.1 pounds per foot by means of two .5" diameter grade 8 galvanized, hardened U-bolts which shall be supplied as part of the assembly.

4. Gate Structure

Gate frame shall be fabricated in such a way as to hang plumb and travel straight and true.

5. Quality Assurance

Contractor shall verify that the gate structure with which the Cantilever Gate Roller System is to operate shall have been designed so as to meet "Minimum Performance Criteria" of ASTM specifications. Gate opening size shall not exceed 30 feet, with an overall length not to exceed 42 feet, and a gate structure that shall require no more than 120 pounds of draw force to actuate the gate.

6. Warranty

System components manufactured and supplied by EDKO, Inc. shall have a limited warranty of three year against defects in materials and workmanship
