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!
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
