The tag barrier=sliding_gate is sometimes used to map a gate which opens by sliding to the side. Sometimes these are operated by an automated mechanism, or they may be manually opened and closed.

It is more common to map sliding gates with the tag barrier=gate, however, sometimes with an addition of gate:type=sliding (or gate:type=rolling).

Tag history

This tag appears to be primarily appearing in Indonesia and used by Grab employees[1].

It was in use before Grab employees popularized it, but usage was minimal[2]
