Apartment Complex Gate Repair

Gate Before Repair

This gate was less than a year old and has failed. This gate is the result of the original contractor cutting corners. Instead of using the correct gate for the application they used two seperate gates meant to swing and welded them together. This is a photo of the bottom rail on the gate that has collapsed from the weight.

As you can see the gate is not structurally sound almost every weld was cracked because it was not intended for this use.

Here we are repairing the bottom rail of the gate to handle the weight. This gate was originally two gates that were intended to swing on hinges. Replacing the bottom completely and installing a solid base, the bottom of the structure is now ready to be able to support itself on rollers without damage.

In this photo you can see the added structural support that has been added. Each joint has now been gusseted and panels have had proper connecting supports welded in place.
