Automating a farm/field gate
#1
Smile 
We live in a barn conversion and would like to have a wooden farm/field gate. We don’t have the depth for a swinging gate but plenty of room for sliding. 

I can’t see anything off the shelf, nor can I find anyone with any experience of fitting these but I assume it can be done. 

I can see plenty of sliding gate kits, how hard would it be to get something like this working? We have an electrician who is experienced in wiring up automated gates, it’s more the logistics of connecting the motor to the gate and getting the sliding hardware to function.

Hi Thestables,

If you are happy with your electrician, then we can help you with the manufacture and install of your sliding gate. 

a few quick questions first that you might want to check with your electrician. 
- getting power to the gate (what voltage and amps is he intending in putting in?)
- what kind of safety accessories is he going use? (safety edges /photocells / safety loop) 
- will a tracked or sliding gate be required as with farms, there is normally a lot of debris where tracked gates tend to struggle.
