5m Gates.

  1. Does anyone make wide gates ? Wooden out of the question for this width?
    Need to keep transit tipper people out of the yard, yet need access for artics. Don't want the palaver of a pair of 3 M gates. Google has been frustratingly useless.

  2. I'll make you some (y) or @Forever Fendt would probably be interested

    IAE will make what you want but you will not see them till Feb in all probability. Their real heavy cattle yard spec are not too bad at all but would prob' be wrong side £150 each.
    16ft gate is not very handy if most of your traffic is van/truck/tractor TBH. I have a pair of 3.5m and seldom need to open second one.

    They are available I hung two IAE 16' gates yesterday, I think that translates to 4.8m in new money.

  14. I know what you mean, I've already got a pair of 12' gates at the entrance, but 1 has to stay open all day for postman / deliveries etc. This means unwanted guests can branch off into the yard and drive around the buildings. I find ' pairs ' are a pain to erect and match up. I'd rather a single 16 ', I think.

    Looking for a 10m wide cantilever gate currently and was surprised to find IAE make them too.

    Bonkers money though some of them - one firm wanted £10k just to install a manual opening one! I'd want it automated for that money!!

    Thought about approaching local steel fabricators but wasn't sure about the balancing of it to get it to run spot on with no wear and ease of opening. @RWG Contracts - fancy a challenge?!

    its dead easy,best thing to do is measure up what you want and get it cut to size at the steel stockholders,on a gate that size you will defiantly need to plate the hinge holes up to stop eye bolts pulling through the box section,use box section for the infillers not flat bar , how wide is it and how high do you need it
  18. 16' by 4' high would suit. Nothing special....something like this would do.
