16-metre opening manual gates

Our recent supply and installation for a local company manufacturing plastic products

Our first reaction was to try to reduce the opening as most fencing companies would only ever offer a 12m opening….. our client was adamant about maintaining the full width

So this was yet another challenge for MDS and we smashed it!

Installation Details

Using mammoth 250 mm square steel posts set over 1 metre into reinforced concrete we were sure to get the best structural start.

The 16m opening was also not the only challenge….. it was sloping by some 150 mm as the gate opened!
This meant we had to allow for this in our design

Using a tapered bottom infill we made sure the gate would open and yet maintain security

The structure was hot dipped galvanised by Manchester galvanisers and we used a Hyab craned offload facilitates
