  • Aluminum Gate

    Built from 2" square 3/16" wall, this is the only pic of the build, used an Evolution saw CPS380 to do the cutting, also built a post (in photos) that helps keep the gate in line. It rides on an angle using 2 Vee wheels.
    The customer installed the Brazilian IPE wood

        Looks like a drive through gate? If so won't the angle get damaged by driving over it? Looks like you did a nice job.

          No, it's very common for rolling gates to be run on a track of inverted angle. I use 1x1x1/8". Will last forever. I drive my dually pickup and trailer over one every day.

          I've only used steel, but appropriately sized aluminum would be fine. The inverted angle is an extremely strong structural shape, especially for a soft rubber loading.

          With aluminum, you'd have to be sure to use structural angle with a radiused inside corner and not architectural angle with a hard 90-degree inside corner (and usually an inappropriate alloy).
