The installation of a sliding gate isn’t an ordinary thing to do, as there are many details to consider before doing it. Will you have the time for maintenance? Who will construct the gates? Will you handle installing alone? Where will you get the instructions from? These are only a few of the questions that will start to fill your head. Moreover, you will have to consider whether you want electric or manual sliding gates, which influences the installation process greatly.
If you have a standard driveway opening of about 10 ft (about 3 m), you will need about 800 mm to leave for the overhang plus at least 100 mm for a receiving post.
If using DIY sets, you will receive two receiving posts from metal. They are set with special elements that catch the gates. The posts are long, so install them deeper into the ground.
There will be one more post that is also to be installed into the ground. Attach nylon rollers and the U-shaped rail to it, and fit the sliding gate to the construction. This will help the gates open and close easier.
A sliding gate installation needs a track to be completed; our technicians at Art Metal Workshop strongly recommend in-ground tracks. You will need some concrete to install the track, and enough length that has to include the overhang of the gate.
Wheels are simply fit to the bottom part of the gate, yet you may need supervision if they are automatic. 5 to 6 wheels are usually sufficient for an ordinary sliding gate installation.
The price of a sliding gate can vary from $4,000-6,000 to about $40,000, and it depends on many different factors:
Sliding gate installation is atime-consuming process that needs a lot of effort and knowledge. You can purchase a DIY kit, but there still has to be detailed instructions for you not to get confused. Plan your budget before ordering your gates, as you may need additional posts, wheels, and electronic elements for your project.
