The precision machined hinge and v-groove wheel are two of Edko's SafeGlide Gate Systems. They are a highly durable, safe, easy-to-operate perimeter security solution. These 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
  • Offset design for safety, reducing liability risks.
  • Makes gates easy to operate, whether by hand or automatic operation.
  • Extends life of gate operators
  • For use on  Industrial / Commercial / Residential Gates
  • 3 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 v-groove wheels have two-inch permanently sealed bearings that require no greasing.

  • Hinge is precision machined from cold steel or aluminum. The pair is available in steel upper and lower block, aluminum upper and lower block or  combination aluminum and steel for steel post and aluminum gate installations
  • The shaft is permanently lubricated by oil impregnated bronze bushings
  • The hinge is also available (not shown) with a v-groove cut in the block for mounting to round posts.
  • V-Groove wheel is available in either 4 inch or 6 inch diameter
  • Both wheels are heat treated for superior weight capacity
  • High precision sealed bearings with a 3100 pound rating are press fit to give the best bearing and roller performance available in the industry
