            C.    Splicing - Heavy Duty or Structural Gate:
                  1. A ¼" x 5" x 24" galvanized steel splice plate shall be used to secure the two
                     bottom channel members together utilizing eight (8) plated carriage bolts with
                     lock nuts. The top members will be spliced together using a ¼" x 2" x 24"
                     aluminum splice plate secured with six (6) drive rivets on one side and welded to
                     the top member on the other side. The track is overlapped 24” or 36” respectively
                     onto the opposing section in an alternating fashion, interlocking with the top

                     the top member (for structural gates). When interlocked and welded to the
                     “keyed” top member, it forms a composite structure with the top of the gate
                     frame. Welds are to be placed alternately along the top and side of the track at
                     9" centers with welds being a minimum of 2" long.
            E.    Gate Mounting:
                  1. The gate frame is to be supported from the tracks by two (2) (Heavy Duty gates)
                     or four (4) (Structural gates) swivel-type, self-aligning, 4-wheeled, sealed
                     lubricant, ball-bearing truck assemblies. Each truck is to be attached to a hot
                     dipped, galvanized steel hanger bracket, which in turn is attached to a 4” O.D.
                     support post. The bottom of each inside support post is to be equipped with a pair
                     of 3” UHMW guide wheels.
            F.    Diagonal Bracing:
                  1. Diagonal “X” bracing of 3/16" minimum diameter stainless steel aircraft cable
                     shall be installed to brace the gate panels and to provide a ready means of vertical
            G.    Posts:
                  1. A single set (Heavy Duty Gate) or Double sets (Structural Gates) of support posts
                     shall be minimum 4" O.D. round or 4” square galvanized steel in accordance with
                     ASTM F 1043. All posts shall be supported in concrete footings as specified by
                     the design team.

                     (including the clear opening and counterbalance) and shall be secured at each end
                     of the gate frame by standard fence industry tension bars and tied at each vertical
                     member with standard fence industry ties. The gate filler shall extend to a
                     minimum height of 48” above grade and shall be sized to prevent a 2¼” diameter
                     sphere from passing through openings anywhere along the length of the gate

                     exceed 2¼”, a secondary gate filler shall be secured at each end of the gate frame
                     and tied at each vertical member. The secondary filler for the gate and adjoining
                     fence shall extend to a minimum height of 48” above grade and shall be sized to
                     prevent a 2¼” diameter sphere from passing through openings anywhere along the
                     length of the gate frame. Gate system shall be powder coated black (custom
                     colors are available – see shop drawings for color requested).

                  2. The installing contractor shall be responsible to ensure that appropriate external
                     secondary entrapment protection devices be installed for the specific site
                     conditions to protect against all potential entrapment zones. Proper operation of
                     these safety devices shall be verified and training as to the operation and
                     maintenance of these devices for the users and owners shall be documented.
