Are you considering adding a fence and gate system to your home or business?  There are many benefits to doing this, like security, privacy, and setting boundaries. With MFR Manufacturing Corporation, you are guaranteed to receive the best gate and fence system customized to the needs of your residence or business. We offer many different fence and gate solutions for every application, and we work alongside architects, engineers, contractors, owners, and facility managers to ensure that product integration is secure and appropriate. There are many benefits to installing a gate system in your fence, but you want to be sure to choose the right one for you. At MFR Corp, we offer three main gate systems that could suit you.

Swing Gates

Your gate system entrance is your first chance to prevent any unauthorized or unwanted visitors. Swing gates offer protection by acting like a door that can swing open side-to-side. They offer either a 90- or 180-degree radius. Because of this, they may take up more space than a gate that opens left-to-right. However, they are also more flexible and easier to use. This is what makes them a popular choice for residential fences. Swing gates are also beneficial for controlling the traffic flow of commercial and industrial areas, such as transportation hubs, airport terminals, and large event venues. A swing gate offers protection against intruders, which makes it a popular choice for these particular businesses or homes. Typically, a swing gate should not be chosen for a high-traffic vehicle entrance due to the swing radius.

Cantilever Slide Gates

A cantilever slide gate is also a common choice for an entrance gate. These are popular in both commercial and industrial settings in search of more security. Typically, they will have an access keypad or guard, allowing security allowance before visitors gain access. These gates operate reliably, have low overall costs, and require minimal maintenance over time. This gate is moved sideways using rollers or wheels on the gate posts.  Many businesses with a strict perimeter or boundary use cantilever slide gates to enforce security policies.

V-track Slide Gates

The V-track slide gate system is a common design in commercial facilities. This gate moves sideways and aligns parallel with the fence when fully opened. As a result, it allows vehicles to easily enter without taking up additional space. The V-track enables the gate to slide open and stay in alignment. Because it uses a track, it may require more maintenance than a trackless slide gate, which makes it more suitable for areas of high security with less traffic flow.

Customizing Your Gate System

You also get to select the type of infill panel for your gate. We have a selection of infill panels for our fence systems that will work for your gate. You can also choose from custom options like solid metal, wood or pickets. 

For the finish, we recommend a powder coating. It provides a high quality finished surface. Powder coating has excellent durability and retains its attractive appearance over the years. You can be assured because our powder coatings are environmentally friendly. This is a better choice over a liquid paint application because it produces no volatile organic compounds, creates less waste during production, and lasts much longer. 

A Low-Maintenance Choice

When you are selecting the best gate system for your business, you want a gate that won’t require much upkeep. Our sturdy, powder-coated gates need little to no maintenance. The finish resists corrosion, so it is a great choice for high traffic areas. The gate parts are made of high-quality materials that will not need to be replaced for a long time.


With everything you need to manage in your business, low-maintenance gate systems are essential. That’s why you can count on MFR Corp. to provide the best selection for you. We will consult with you about the system that’s right for your needs.

When it’s time to select the system you want, you can contact us for a consultation. We will visit your site and talk with you about what you need. Then we will create technical drawings according to our measurements. We will show you the drawing of the gate, which you will critique or approve.
