After weeks of planning, our client in the Philippines is now enjoying his sliding gate using DuraGates hardware. The working space was tight but that was not an issue for DuraGates hardware since the counter balance length is much shorter than most sliding/rolling gate hardware. The smallest steel model, CGS-250.8M, was used and is barely visible making the gate quite aesthetically pleasing.
Here is what our client, Mike, had to say about the project:
"It has been a while since I ordered the gate hardware that you recommended. I just wanted to take a minute give you an update. Here in the Philippines no such hardware is available and your website made a compelling argument for 'thinking outside the box'. Your product sounded like a perfect solution to my problem. Our street is too narrow for a swinging gate to open out and with a car in the carport there was no room to open in. The hardware arrived and was installed by local workers who obviously were not familiar with the process.
I am pleased to report that the finished product is PERFECT, thanks! We have thought about getting the gate motorized, but even my 9 year old niece can open and close it by hand with no difficulty."
