    Hello all,

    We are looking to add a curved sliding electric gate to the drive.

    I have attached a sketch of what I think will work. It's a wide gate @ 5.5m

    We would of course need a dead level concrete base onto which I would attach the curved track rail. The curved track would be make in the same workshop as the gate frame so we know they will match.

    Hopefully the picture explains it all.

    Do you think this is workable?

    Thank you for reading & looking.

    Thank you... at this stage cost is not an issue. I am mainly concerned as to whether it is workable.

    It is workable but fitting the necessary safety sensors could complicate matters,

    Consider how the gate could be opened in the event of a power failure, Most gates have an accessible pin or similar that connects the drive mechanism ( motor ) to the gate. Removing the pin enable the gate to opened / closed by hand.

    You would need to have the restrainers ( section b-b ) at both gate posts and at the end of the gate when open ( a strong wind could topple the gate )
