i was asked to bid and build a gate that is drawn in the pic below. the gate is 17 foot long and 6 foot tall. the customer does not want it to split in the center. built out of 1 1/4 tube and 3/8 square stock, it will get pretty heavy, pretty quick. what would be a good idea to use for main post for this gate to swing on? customer asked that an automatic opener be installed at a later time. one idea that i had was to put the gate on rolls and have it slide along the rock wall, but then i will be getting into more money than what the customer is willing to go for, i'm afraid. any ideas on this, please.
No announcement yet.
a gate this size?
