This crash rated cantilevered sliding barrier gate is designed for high threat facilities in need of additional security. As pictured above, the Nasatka K-12 rated barrier appears on the United States Department of Defense (DoD) Anti-Ram Vehicle Barriers List. Models are also available in K4 and K-8 ratings.
Learn more about crash ratings on our Crash Rated Bollards page.
The gate itself is almost 10 feet high while the barrier stretches to almost 12 feet high. Models come in various widths (12 to 24 feet) to accommodate customer lane openings to facilities. The gate materials are available with anti-climbing material, chain link fence, pickets and can even be matched to existing fence lines or specific finishes. Each barrier gate can be controlled manually or with either electrical or hydraulic operators.
Cantilever Barrier Gates Are More Reliable
Cantilever gates are very similar in operation to sliding gates. However cantilever gates do not use sliding gate rollers which slide along the ground to support the gate. Instead rails and posts support the gates inside the fence. Cantilever gates are wider than sliding gates since this additional counterbalancing support is required. The application uses counterbalancing of often times nearly one half the width of the opening.
All in all, sliding gates are more popular in light commercial or residential applications. However cantilever gates are considered more reliable than sliding gates. They also do not required lateral space needed for swing gates.
These crash rated cantilevered sliding barrier gates can easily be integrated into access control systems using previously discussed vehicle detection loops, card or numeric readers, as well automated vehicle identification (AVI) system using radio frequency identification (RFID).

Please send me pictures and sketches of your K-12 rated cantilevered vehicle gate. I need about 30 ft. length.
Hi Shawn and thank you for your comment.
I would suggest contacting the manufacturer Nasatka directly at https://nasatka.com/ since your request is outside of our installation area and we do not sell equipment directly.
I’m Shawn Reed at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina. I’m looking into replacement gates for an existing vehicle gate system. I need information regarding the following:
Need 4 Gates – Size 28’ L Gate x 9’ H Gate (24’ post spacing) or popup barrier
Planned outdoor use of these gates or popup barriers
Gate controls for all 4 gate locations or popup barriers
Gates or popup barriers must meet DOS K-12 Rating
Each gate or popup barriers needs to function to support a minimum 100 open / close cycles per day for 30 years with limited maintenance (provide preventative maintenance needed)
Gates or popup barriers need manual backup to open / close gate (need approximate gate weight)
Gates need to be equipped with at least two types of automatic safety stop systems (IR beam and / or contact stop system)
Hi again Shawn and thanks for your detailed inquiry.
Unfortunately, we do not sell equipment directly for others to install. You can contact Nasatka, or any of the other manufacturers listed on our website, to get a local supplier near your location.
