TonkaTrak is all about engineered extrusions and precision hardware that can be seamlessly integrated to create elegant gates. Remember when aluminium windows were cobbled together from off-the-shelf extrusions, awkwardly screwed into a frame to sandwich a piece of glass? Now they’re intricately engineered with built-in features that speed up construction and benefit the end-user. With Tonkatrak we’re making the same leap forward with aluminium gate design.
Popular profiles like louvre, slat and tongue and groove can be used in a way that allows the frame to simply flow around the infill to achieve what could only be described as minimalist magic. Get us to custom fabricate one for you in our Auckland workshop or we can supply the components for you to build into your own designs.
- Lightweight gate means it can be counterbalanced by a small concrete slab - 300mm deep is sufficient.
- Grooved wheels reduce the need for the top guidance
- No need for a concreted runout strip along the fence line
- No rusty track across your beautiful driveway
- Quick install and easy civils compared to steel cantilever
SHIPPING WITHIN NZ
Components - brackets, hinges, gate operators etc are generally off the shelf and we will dispatch the same day for orders before 2pm and next day for orders after. Deliveries go out by courier. We use NZC and our shipping charges are closely matched to what we get charged.
Long or Bulky Items - such as gate track, rolls of chain link mesh or barrier arms go out by Streamline freight. Delivery can take a day or two depending on your location. We do our best to charge only the actual cost.
Fence Panels and Gates - are managed by inquiry only as the logistics of production and site delivery are best discussed with you or your trades people. We have our own hiab truck that can be used to drop your order right on site but it will need careful planning. Talk to us about these kind of requests.
We're happy to ship overseas and have some regular export customers. But most of our product is heavy and freight can be very expensive for small orders. So we encourage our international customers to put through their inquiry and let us quote the freight before they make a purchase decision.
We only put the credit card payment through after we've dispatched the goods so that if there are any stockouts or delays you can be contacted to make an informed decision.
We're happy to accept returns for standard off-the-shelf product that is un-used and in its original packaging. But if you're ordering something that will be custom made for you then we'll not be able to accept a return in any circumstances. On standard items we reserve the right to charge a 15% restocking fee. Talk to us before returning goods so that we can issue you with a return authority number so our store people can match your return to your order.
Tonkatrak is a lightweight aluminium cantilever system. The gate is made like a standard sliding gate and simply stitch welded into the monorail track. It has amazing benefits compared to a regular sliding gate and none of the drawbacks of steel cantilever. Download the technical guide here.
