Sliding Gates and Advice

Hello Community Members,

 

One of our next projects as family will be a sliding gate that will divide the front and a rear section for privacy.

 

I will be welding and spray painting my own frames and lining it with timber.

 

The part I have hardly any experience on and honestly I remember helping about 10 years ago was a sliding gate.

 

If any of the community members have any advice or can point me to the correct hardware in Bunnings that I will need eg slider, runners ECT.

 

I'm looking at a 3.9Lm long sliding gate.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

And to all the community have a great weekend and enjoy your DIY projects.

 

Kind regards Rob 👍

Re: Sliding Gates and Advice

Good morning @Jason just wondering if you know any of the community members that might be able to give me some advice on building and installing a sliding gate as discussed in the above post.

Have a great weekend

Kind regards Rob 👍

Let me tag today's cover star in @PJA as I recall he might have done something similar. 

 

Perhaps @JasonD@redracer01 and @MitchellM might also be able to draw on the expertise of their networks...

See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!

Re: Sliding Gates and Advice

Thank you @BIM_Engineer 

 

I am going to construct the gate myself and install it.

 

It's just advice on installing I'm after.

Thank you for the Leeds though

 

Kind regards Rob 👍

Re: Sliding Gates and Advice

Bunnings don't have the supplies/hardware ie rollers, tracks, RHS Tube, etc

Their sections cater for hobbyists as does workshop. hth

Sliding Gates and Installation

Good morning @Jason mate hope you had a great weekend.

 

Sorry to flood your inbox.

 

I posted for some help a little while ago for anyone who has had experience in the installation of Sliding Gates with or with a motor. I intend to put a motor in, but if anyone you may know in the community who possibly could help I would really appreciate it as I will be doing it all myself other than the electrical of course.

 

I know how to construct the gate and fence and fit normally but never done a slider.

 

Maybe @ProjectPete might know how or know someone.

 

Appreciate any help

Have a great day 😁

 

Kind regards Rob 👍

I would look at solar as an option unless you have an outdoor power point handy.

Re: Sliding Gates and Installation

Absolute ripper of an idea @Brad  about Solar. No sparky I guesse. 😁

 

I'm pretty confident about everything but some extra reassurance about where all the hardware for the sliders go ECT would be great 👍
