The innovative Sidturn is a great option for narrow properties or confined spaces, where room for gate retraction is limited.  The Sidturn was born from a need to do what was supposedly impossible, i.e. to fit a retracting sliding gate into an area that was smaller than the length of the actual gate.

Custom Garage Doors are proud to be Sidcon's only partner outside of Victoria.

How do you make a 4.5m domestic sliding gate fit into a 1.5m space?


Sidcon Fabrications has innovated the first turning gate of its type in Australia. 

Not only does the SIDTURN solve the problem with confined spaces, but it can also form part of the garden architecture. 


Form and function in balance!

The 'Sidturn' turning sliding gate is an option for narrow properties where driveway width is restricted, or where obstacles prevent traditional sliding gates.


The system is made from two or more panels, fitted with our in house custom made hinges, track and wheels that allow the panel to turn down the side boundary of the property. Gates can be designed to slide open like our standard automatic sliding gates.

A great solution for:

  • Narrow properties that previously couldn't have traditional automatic sliding gates

  • Areas where standard automatic gate retraction is impeded or prevented by obstacles (eg, water tanks, water and gas meters, etc)

  • Side sliding garage door.
