First of all, set the desired width of your future goal. Consider the width of the machine and the necessary space for the free passage to the territory. Usually it is about 2.5 m.
3
Make a cement Foundation for a future gate. For rigid mounting pillars lay the Foundation of the channel to which they are attached, the width of the gate. Lay the Foundation with a metal bar, which will move the rollers sliding gate. Strengthen the guard - stops on both sides.
4
Of square pipe 60x40 mm to fabricate the frame of sliding doors the right size. By welding re-attach the carrier beam. It may be made of a metal profile.
5
Welding attach the subframe to the frame of a metal tube 20x20 mm, panel subframe profile sheet or other material that makes up your fence. Install the support rollers on the finished gate leaf.
6
Install a gate in the finished design. Adjust their course.
Note
All components for the manufacture of sliding doors with their hands can find at hardware stores.

Advice 2 : How to make the gate of corrugated Board

In the construction market presents a huge range of modern materials for construction of gates and fences. But very popular among owners of cottages and country houses uses corrugated sheet. Such a love for this material stems from the fact that the gates of corrugated Board is easy to fabricate with his own hands. Galvanized corrugated sheet has a unique ribbed shape of a leaf, which gives it a special strength and rigidity. These sheets are galvanized or coated with a polymer layer. The second option saves owner from having to regularly paint the gate.
How to make the gate of corrugated Board
You will need
  • - Bulgarian;
  • - gon;
  • level;
  • - welding machine;
  • - corrugated sheets;
  • - screws.
Instruction
1
The manufacture of gates of corrugated Board begins with the setting of poles, which is used as a channel beam. Its thickness should be not less than 16 mm. Beneath the gate pillars need to dig a hole one meter on, the bottom of which is filled and compacted gravel. After that, the pit filled with a small amount of concrete mortar. In the absence of gravel as filler, you can use the broken bricks.
2
Before proceeding to the next stage, we need to wait for complete solidification of the solution. This usually occurs within one month. All this time the posts should be vertical. To speed up the process of making the gate and give the channel resistance, its lower part is welded to a square, made of sheet steel.
3
The Assembly of the gate frame must be on level ground. That the world is laid out a rectangle the size of one gate leaf. Peg is hammered into the top corner. Then with the help of the cord from the peg, you need to mark the line where you marked three equal pieces. Their size can be choose at their own discretion. Next, from the same peg orthogonally is another line. It should be noted that there are four equal parts, after which all the marks are connected. Thus, you need to mark the entire rectangle of the frame, after which it can be assembled by using welding machine.
4
At the end of the Assembly frame, it can immediately sheathe profiled sheet. This is done on the spot. If leaf width is 2 m, you will need two sheets. The attachment of the corrugated sheet is performed by screws having a hexagonal head, which can then be shaded in the color of the sheet.
5
Loop the gate can be screwed to the frame with bolts or weld them right after the frame was assembled. The corrugated sheet is attached to the frame on top of these loops. If their choice is to stay in the garage loops, the length of which shall not be less than one meter.
6
After the leaf is fully sheathed steel sheets should be welded to the channel and further secured with the bolt. Mount will be better, if the bolt passes through two shelves channel beams.
Note
Welding jobs require accuracy. The slightest error made when welding the frame, can significantly degrade the performance of the whole structure.
Useful advice
Not to cut the corrugated sheet on your site, you need to immediately order the entire batch of building material of the desired size.
